Official Oklahoma City Thunder OFFSEASON 2013-2014 Thread **NEW TEAM, - Page 4

post #91 of 547
I know somebody in BK at the game. I saw tickets for like 7$ at one point on Stubhub. Amazing the Thunder are still not a big time $ draw on the road with 2 all stars.

It's going down Friday though.

Glad we won this game but did not like how they were just bombing three's on us and killing us on the glass all night.

Some quick pics I took from the game last night. Saw a lot of KD jersey's and surprisingly saw some Russ Westbrook's as well. Thank God KD was cooking last night because that was some ugly offense last night. Only 84 points by us sick.gif.

 

Forgot to post this last year in the Thunder season thread but might as well do it now. Got it signed by him last year. He was real chill, I wanted to take a pic with him but the bald security guy said no pics allowed. Wish I brought a silver pen but KD only had a black one because it's really hard to see his signature mean.gif

Nice. I've heard nothing but good things about meeting KD from so many people I know who have met him.

Liggins FINALLY getting minutes and is showing he deserves to have been getting minutes. Dude is a lockdown defender and his overall hustle and effort makes him invaluable and seems to turn everyone else up as well.

Perkins is ballin' too, have to give him his props because I am the first to have been complaining about him all season and demanding he be traded for AV or Gortat. I just need him to keep this up, especially in the playoffs, and especially if/when Brooks stubborn *** plays him against the Heat

I didn't know who this Liggins dude was but he is a real physical defender pimp.gif I like the hustle and he hit a few 3's yesterday laugh.gif. He can help spell Thabo from time to time and guard the other team's best perimeter player.

 

I also agree about Perkins right now. I see him hitting the boards which is what we need. Maybe he's healthy again? Why didn't Thabo and Serge player against Portland? I was busy watching football all day.

They are both still injured. Ibaka sustained a chest contusion in the Lakers game and Thabo strained his neck. Liggins played at Kentucky with Wall and them, should have stayed another year and developed a 40% 3 but as you said, his hustle and defense is no doubt NBA caliber.

I'm interested to find out why Lamb doesn't get minutes though. Brooks is FINALLY opening up the rotation, granted injury forced him to, and Lamb still only gets mopup minutes. I wonder if he doesn't work hard enough in practice.

we all know brooks is stubborn as hell.. which i really dont get, considering some of his first moves when got the job

 

 

but lamb has been ballin down in the NBDL..

 

 

 

 

 

 

on that note,, sorta.. IF we end up getting the raptors pick this year (outside the top 3.. but still in the lottery), what players do you guys think would fit in best?

 

if martin isn't willing to sign for cheap AND considering we do have lamb.. i could still see us going after another SG (looked up ben mclemore after someone compared him to ray allen in the season thread.. and he could help with our spacing problem we often have at times AND also be the main scorer off the bench)

 

- also thabo's deal is up after next season

 

 

OR if we could get a talented C propsect.. could also see us going that way

post #103 of 547
I don't like this class that much, but I'll admit I very scarcely ever watch college ball. I need Toronto to keep winning so we don't get it this yr, then for Bargnani to be healthy next yr and them to stink it up (since they play worse WITH him) so we get it in 2014. I'm of the mind we have to swing for the fences and get a title before 2016 or KD leaves. Obviously Presti or moreso Bennett and the dudes writing a check feel like being cheap to maximize profits is more important though.

Trade deadline is a month away, I can't wait to see what we got cooked up. If anyone will take him (Philly was rumored to have been interested), Maynor you have to believe is gone. He went from full time backup to extreme garbage minutes if not DNP-CDs. I don't dislike him at all,he just wasn't the same player coming off the injury and wasn't playing well enough. Even Reggie I'm hesitant to see as good enough to rely on in the postseason so something could be done there and the backup C. Thabeet, I just don't know if we can play him much in the postseason. He earns some of them, but he gets a lot of calls where it seems like refs just don't like him and are calling on him.
post #104 of 547

^ me either.. hence why i need to ask

 

 

but my hope is, that lamb develops enough to usurp thabo in the starting lineup.. OR if mclemore is as good of a shooter as the stats indicate (again, dont watch), then we can have him eventually start with westbrook/kd/ibaka to help with spacing

 

then lamb is the main scorer/playmaker off the bench with the 2nd unit..

 

 

 

or if we get someone like the ucla kid.. lamb is the starter.. and he becomes the playmaker/scorer off the bench, since he's being compared to harden anyways

i really could see anything happening.. i think maynor gets moved..

 

but i could also see martin getting moved, he shot well last night.. but has been in a slump the last 2 weeks.. i just wonder with varejao getting hurt (which was inevitable) will presti try and sell high since (knock on wood) we kinda have to prepare for something potentially happening to martin

 

 

FOR ME, everything outside of westbrook/KD/serge/lamb/raptors' pick is available.. also collison is is unavailable

Hey_

Anybody else miss the ball movement that we saw in the beginning of the season?

Hey_

Really liked what I saw from Perry Jones III, DeAndre Liggins, and Reggie Jackson last night.

On another note, if Russ can improve his fg% and shoot somewhat like he did last night though the rest of the season...oof.

post #108 of 547

^ we really need to see more from lamb.. or actually, i should say, just see anything at all..

 

 

since we have to figure out how much or even IF we should resign martin.. then we also have to see what we'll do in the draft

True.

This particular game his defensive effort seemed to be lacking, in my opinion at anyhow.

Hey_

With Sam Presti in attendance at last night's game to witness the smashing of the OKC bench,

do you think he's more apt to make a move before the deadline?

post #111 of 547

I didn't get a chance to watch the game last night because I was busy watching my Ravens win but by looking at the box score looks like Russ and KD are they only ones scoring with no help mean.gif K-mart shot well last night but he only took 10 attempts, I wonder why?

Hey_

From what I've been seeing during these recent games, the Thunder have gotten away from balanced scoring and ball movement that we saw when the season began.

We gotta get back to that if we're going to continue to be successful.

A top heavy offense is easy to stop come playoff time.

Julius F. Wrek
post #113 of 547
Yea, Russ and KD been on like a historic pace as a duo but I agree, need more. We still can't beat the Heat this way. AV is out for the season so so much for that. I just want another guy who can get 15 every couple games. I'd even take a Mike Dunleavy. We only going 7 deep some games. KD has played 98 minutes the last 2 games.
post #114 of 547
Hey_

sick.gif Ugh. Clippers commentators are so hard to listen to.

Glad Big Blue won this game though.

I'm glad to see Durant facilitating again.

I'd like it if Brooks let the homie Liggins play a bit more though.

I still think we need a contributor in the low post.

Julius F. Wrek
post #115 of 547

^ liggins has been a real pleasant surprise

post #116 of 547
Hey_

He should play a decent amount tonight, the energy the W's bring is serious.

On another note, this flop warning/fine stuff is ridiculous.

Imma go ahead and give up the idea that one day LeBron'll be warned/fined for his foolishness.

OKC bench needs to step it up if the championship is gonna be won. Right now I feel like when they're in they're playing survival basketball and not trying to produce. Some exceptions here and there but overall, fail
post #118 of 547
Hey_

I wholeheartedly agree.

Brooks also needs to be a bit more lax on the rotation as well.
