Time to Rant
I know the premise of this article seems kind of silly, but it's a direct response to another article from The Lost Ogle. I wanted to throw out this article to set the record straight on one of the most pointed to moves in NBA history.
So, in case you haven't heard, Derek Fisher was spotted at Will Rogers World Airport yesterday with Thunder GM Sam Presti and other various Thunder staff. With that initial meeting, Sam Presti may have made the first bad move of his career as a General Manager.
Some of you might have read the article or seen the video from Bballbreakdown which adamantly states that Russell Westbrook is not a point guard, giving various reasons why. The site normally offers some pretty good NBA analysis, but this argument is as hardline and foolish as they come.
But, as I read Kelly Dwyer's Story on Ball Don't Lie in-between games, I became even more aware of what was wrong with what I was watching. The game that I had just watched featured teams that were entirely named after their sponsor.
This is just a quick poll to see what you guys think of what the Thunder did to their home floor over the off-season.
With yesterday's win over Portland, the Thunder clinched a playoff berth and extended their Division lead over the Denver Nuggets to 4.5 games. But who ends up facing them in the first round?
Recently, Clark Matthews of TheLostOgle.com has posted a commentary on DailyThunder concerning the D-League and it's general development. My thoughts on his proposals.
After a string of relatively ho-hum Eastern Conference games, the Thunder are heading into the final five weeks of the season, and the waters are going to get testy. Look inside for some predictions and insight into the upcoming games within the context of our new-look team.
Responding Directly to the Statements Made by Charles Barkley about the Oklahoma City Thunder on TNT
While I do find the show entertaining, the analysis the crew gives is iffy at best. Because, time and time again, Charles Barkley makes outrageous statements about the NBA that are mostly untrue.
When shouting at the Thunder players after the game was over, Josh Smith made it clear he was upset when the Thunder breached NBA etiquette and dunked with less than 24 seconds left on the clock, and the Thunder up by 9. To be honest, Josh Smith can go cry me a river.
As Free Agency winds down to a close, the amount of Thunder news has slowed down to a trickle. Because of this, articles need to be made in order to fill in the time between now and the Pre-Season. Here, I take a look aback at the past two years, and some of the worst mishaps I've made while blogging.
This afternoon, the Thunder took on a relatively experienced Bobcat team that stuck with them until the final buzzer. Here's a quick recap of how it went.
As we all know, Mike Brown was recently fired as coach of the league leading Cavaliers. But, the Cavaliers situation has been talked about for days on end, and I'm not here to beat that dead horse. The situation I want to talk about is the one in Oklahoma City....or rather, the one that could arise.
