I agree LJ, KD's ball security has come a long way and i think he can average a legit 4 to 5 assists per game this year, just gotta manage the turnovers.
Also i forgot to mention how well i thought Perk played defensively on Aldridge, he was physical, solid lateral movement and contested everything.
Glad to see Nick more aggressive, he's taking 6 shots per game this year as opposed to 3 last year and i think he keeps it up. If he's open and sets his feet on his mid range jumper its going in.
Scotty confirmed that we pretty much have a nine and a half man rotation. Thabeet, Collison, Martin and Maynor off the bench w/PJ3 or RJ as the 10th guy depending on the matchup.
Red Sox, Ravens, Thunder, Blackhawks, UConn and Penn St. Fan!
The only things I take from the 2 games is that we will be a really really good team this year when Ibaka starts making his shots like we all know he will. Brooks needs to be able to change his thought process when it proves to be wrong. If he would accept being wrong then he would grow as a coach.
I don't see us being a great team though. Not until Brooks take control of the team, and holds them accountable of their actions.

And Frenchi- If Harden was here we would not worry about it.
Brooks will never be a good coach. That's just fact at this point.
Bad, bad loss.
Kevin Martin can ****ing shoot.
actually, martin can be more lethal for us than was harden. The only thing really different is that harden was holding the ball off Russ hands... so we just have to find someone else to keep this ball (maynor is the most skilled player as playmaker in this team !!) and tat will be lethal !!
close games with maynor, westB, martin, Durant ibaka/perk or try one bet : KD with the ball at the point...forcinf a SF to defend against KD from the PG situation...look how lebron is effective in that scheme (ok, kd will win the TO stats )
Raps fan here.... thanks for dragging us onto national tv for the first time in forever. We're not expecting much but we don't often get blown out by upper-echelon teams like we always used to. Hoping for a fun, fast-paced game.
"Juuuuuuuuuuuuust a bit outside. Wild Thing tried for the corner and missed."
Great half so far.
Thabeet has been so impressive tonight.
