I'm telling you man, all teams have to do is screen him all game, and it's an easy bucket or assist to bucket.

 

If he fights through one, set another right away and you will destroy his fight on D for the remainder of the game.

Do you think part of it is to save energy for offense? I don't watch enough Thunder games to get a sense of what's going on.

Also, KD's body language is a little disconcerting. He doesn't demand the ball or attack like he usually does. Seems a little checked out.

The Body Language Doctor senses some problems.
post #40146 of 93193
I notice this too with his body language, but I think it's more of him trying to have that calm I'm hard and tough and don't care about how people view me any more nothing matters type attitude.

I do think he's gone after this year, but he'll have that same attitude when he gets to LA.

LA however, will break him of that before the ASB of his first season. OKC Upper management and PR teams "protect and shield" the Thunder players from the media, cut 90% of their interviews short and even encourage them to "blow off" or "drag" the media.

I can't see LA being okay with this, they are going to get every penny they can from KD, so he better start making some friends in the media, or that media payback is going to be a b

I'm becoming more and more convinced he'll be back. It makes more sense to play on a one-year deal (that Zach Lowe proposed) and go into free agency again the following year.

I thought you were just trying to prepare for the worst every time you talked about it. Being pessimistic.

But you really believe he's gone..

The Thunder are losing to whoever they run into in the first round.

They call him the young wolf. They say he rides into battle on the back of giant direwolf. They say he can turn into a wolf himself when he wants. They say he can't be killed.

Thought he played really well defensively, and was shooting the ball decently til he went 1/5 down the stretch. For not playing in over 3 weeks, I thought he was fine. More importantly, we got a big win down the stretch at home with him on the floor. I like it pimp.gif

Thunder ain't losing to the Grizz or Mavs in the first round. No way. But if i was them, I'd absolutely try to hold off the Clips for that #3 seed....because GSW in the 2nd round is not what the want.

Interested to see who gets the 3 seed. Clips and thunder separated by a half game.

It's a foregone conclusion that Durant and Westbrook walk, and the Thunder deserve it.

I can't say I disagree.
When it's all said and done Cleveland failing to surround LBJ with the proper team and Staff will pale in comparison to what the Thunder had and did nothing with.

I mean, all the Coaches out there and you bring in a Rookie, I backed the decision initially but that's more of me understanding that is something that is out of my control so I rooted on knowing I can only worry about things I can control, of which that wasn't.

My opinion is that he'll likely stay. For how long? Who knows.

Warriors isn't happening. Would need to basically do 15 different moves to get it to happen. And if KD goes, logic says you can't just let him leave for nothing, but sometimes not all face saving moves are worth it.

Teams like Wizards & Rockets who were intriguing places for him to go a few months ago, are super uninteresting now, and would beg the question... Why bother to even leave OKC?

Heat could be a tough sell because you'd be dropping Whiteside for KD. Unless you cut Wade loose, and they are not doing that, and don't think KD even considers them without Wade. Wade will take a cut, but not that drastic of a cut, he's learned his lesson enough by leaving money to appease somebody. They'll be cutting it close. But a Dragic-Wade-Winslow-KD-Bosh roster sounds fun on the surface. They'd really also be skating hoping nothing bad happens to Wade, KD or Bosh..

KD ain't washed or anything of that nature.  When you get paid and you're enjoying life, you don't really care about trying to be the best.  His time is over and his window shrank a hole lot.  Being scared about injuries and not playing for Team USA just shows you the type of mindset he has.  Probably will go down in history as a Reggie Miller variant or something.  A big guy who could shoot, score, never defend, and never winning anything either.  Close but no CIGAR.  Literally and figuratively if you catch the drift.

post #40169 of 93193
Why didn't you mention LA (the team that makes the most sense) and what moves they'd have to make (none) to get KD.

All they'd have to do is add, no subtraction needed. Adding to the current roster + KD, super easy. Plus, it's LA man.
