    @dailythunder: Daniel Orton on getting mistaken for Westbrook: "It's getting to the point where I don't even tell them anymore. Just take the picture."
    Pretty funny.

    Good to hear Harden say he's still willing to take less to stay in OKC

    Scotty said he challenged Russ to improve his post game over the summer...love this idea, we need to figure out more ways to manufacture some post play. It's gonna be a mismatch, it's gonna put him in position to take higher percentage shots and if he gets a feel for where the help is coming he can get others easy shots. Hopefully we hear more little tidbits like this one things to improve the half court offense. That and the commitment to play consistent top level defense. No reason in the world we shouldnt be a top 5 defensive team.

    Completely agree, especially since we have two defensive specialist and the best shot blocker in the league in our starting line up. Our defense should be the best in the league.

    That's where I wish we had Ron Adams back. He was so good for this team.

    Via Royce Young:

    KD today on Perry Jones: "I think he's going to be a very important part of what we do here."

    Would be great to see PJ3 in the rotation....the way i see there is 8 rotation locks and then there's two open spots...backup C, and backup SF. Gonna be interesting to see who get's those spots.

    Yeah, I'm excited about PJ as well. I think he's going to slowly gain more and more time on the floor as the season goes on.

    Great quote from Collison today in Darnell Mayberry's practice notes

    •Expect Collison to look for his offense more this season, particularly with the mid-range jumper. He said at his exit interview back in June that he wanted to come back and be a threat in that area. And he said again today that he’s still planning on that being a part of his game this season. “I want to look for open shots and be an option,” Collison said. “With the way teams play us, they jump pick-and-rolls and we have to be able to throw out and hit shots. I shot the ball well last year. I just want to be able to make some more opportunities for myself.”
    Love hearing this, it's an underrated part of Nick's game, if he's able to set his feet he's money from mid range to even right inside the 3 point line.

    So far that Nick wanted to be more aggressive and Scotty challenging Russ as a post player. Anything that makes us less reliant on individual play im all for it. Love having Maynor back helping that and hopefully we begin to hear about more opportunities for Ibaka on the offensive end.

    Agreed Carey, Collison is actually a really, really good midrange shooter for a big man.

    Honestly, Maynor's return is one of the more underrated things being talked about this offseason. He's arguably a top backup PG, and he's the perfect relief for Westbrook's crazy attacking style of play. Can't wait to have him back out there.

    Nick's a guy that has almost averaged 10 ppg a couple times earlier in his career, i'm looking for him to score a couple more ppgs as well as Ibaka getting over double figures this year. I also agree having Maynor back is gonna be huge, it is very very rare that we have bad offensive possessions with him on the floor. Hopefully all these things lead toward cutting out those lulls we have on offense.
