Yay, season is finally here.
Yay, season is finally here.
I trust Presti. I trust our team to give 100% every game. Westy will give 100% on offense and around 91.23% on defense. K Mart better show why this was a good trade. Bring on the Spurs!
And thank you Lord for moving Lazar away!
Yeah, thank god Lazar is gone... He was becoming hard to watch.
Im not a power rankings guy at all but i hope someone on our team looks at ESPN's new power ranking. They dropped us to 5th citing chemistry issues but the way i see it KMart is really the only new guy they'll have to intergrate persay. Thabeet and PJ3 are new to the rotation but they've been here since the summer and wont play a bulk of mins anyway. KD, Russ, Thabo, Perk, Ibaka, Maynor and Collison not enough continuity? I think we are gonna be fantastic this year and i hope this puts another chip on the guys shoulders.
How long til they bring Fish back to be a player coach?
The power rankings are a little more in depth than what they want you to believe. The 5th spot is not just chemistry. They take into account avg. time missed per player due to injury. Perk has a history, Thabo, Nick, Maynor, and K mart all have injury issues and we may struggle if any of them go down. The biggest thing about it is they have us losing 5 more games then with Harden, which is not horrible, but would make us drop to the 3rd seed in the west and behind the top 2 in the east. Which would make us 5th.
It is all a guesstimation right now anyway. I will wait till all-star break and see where we are. That is plenty of time for us to gell and we will see what we have. I hate the power rankings anyway. lol
We just brought Daniel Orton back. Hollis Thompson and Andy Rautins sign with the 66ers. The team is going to stay at 14 for flexibility. Once again Presti makes the right move. Best GM of all time.
^Yea i was beginning to think that would be the route...keep the spot open to see how the season goes and fill a need if one comes up.
Not like its a big surprise but Brooks named Maynor the back up point gaurd today now we just need to know if brooks is gonna go small with lamb or big with thabeet. Im assuming over the year he will try both out and will adjust to the other line up if someone gets hurt.
Cant wait to see if we go to more smaller lineups with thabeet playing the Cook role as that 10th man that just plays a couple mins a half or if Scotty stays with his traditional play the whole bench at one time for stretches(He has to be the only pro coach that does this). Someone with the Oklahoman suggested that he thought the first sub would be Martin for Perk sliding Ibaka at C, KD at the 3, Thabo at the 2 and Martin and Russ in the backcourt. I would be all for this and i hope Ibaka does get a few more of those Center mins this year to push him over 30 mpg.
I saw in the Oklahoman where the Thunder recalled Daniel Orton. I like that...
