Dude made an argument from his own mouth against himself. This is going to hurt him though for sure he wanted the award bigly.

What squad is going to do better..seriously.

If anything OKC overachieved after losing KD and Serge. Russ is the reason why. No system, no shooters. Just beasting out.
Again, Vegas had OKC at 45.5 wins this season and Houston at 41.  So the "overachieving" narrative is completely revisionist.


It's funny how everyone ignores how the narrative has changed laugh.gif There were people saying Houston wasn't going to make the playoffs this year laugh.gif

How much of those predictions were contingent on how down they were on Harden and how they underachieved and how much respect they have for Russ.

****** are running wild with all of these hypothetical scenarios :lol

 

If you argument is centered around something that didn't happen...you don't have an argument at all.

I'm sure it had to do with both.  Also high expectations for guys like Steven Adams and Oladipo and low ones for Eric Gordon and the Houston supporting cast.

 

Still its important to point out that the narrative OKC overachieved compared to expectations is wrong.

post #5922 of 12932

I don't know how folks thought OKC were going to do as good as they've done this year. I could see the Houston angle and Harden and the Rockets were awesome this year so yes, they overachieved. Fair enough.

 

I don't see how people thought OKC wasn't going to experience a bigger drop than 10 games.

Way better.
Give Harden the team, and I think they are also better than what Russ has them currently.

Wow. Had to look at the screen name again to make sure my eyes weren't playing tricks on me.

A moment of honesty and objectivity? Well I'll be....laugh.gif

Cuz the team really isn't that bad.  They have a legitimate superstar and some top level role players (especially defensively) and they're well coached.  Obviously they don't have a second star and contending talent but you don't need that to win 45 games.

Well only one guy predicted them at 47 wins from that pic so they did overachieve although it be to a lesser extent than the Rockets.

I'm sure there are some people who expected a worse season from OKC, I used the Vegas numbers because its a good aggregate of expectations.

With this recent news of Russ winning MVP, I hope the Thunder gets swept now.

Right, but the writers vote for the award that's given out by the league. It's embarrassing man. Maybe worse than when Dirk lost to the Warriors in the first round when he was a 1 seed. At least the Mavs won a couple games. Westbrook and Thunder may very well get swept.

mvp is an individual award though. houston is a better team. Russell had the better season.

Unfortunate, but not embarrassing. It's not like russ isn't showing up. He aint out here like kyle and demar. dude is doing work. but the're going against a team that seemingly wont miss with swiss cheese defense.

Sorry, but Kevin Love is perfect in his role as 3rd banana in that offense. Kyrie is perfect in his role as Robin to Lebron's Batman. Kyrie wasn't anything but a variant hot sauce before Lebron got there, and Kevin Love was putting up empty stats in Minnesota. The Lebron effect is real and I 100000% refuse to believe that they'd be anything more than a fringe lottery team with the two of them leading the charge. Lebron changes the WHOLE dynamic of that franchise.
They would definitely make the playoffs in the East.  You serious?

Not contenders though.

4-19 says otherwise

Yeah.  I never thought that was so embarrassing though, maybe my perspective is different.  Dirk did deserve MVP that year even though the team choked in the playoffs.  Looking back many years later it makes sense that Dirk should have an MVP.

ehhhh Russ had a terrible game 1 and 4th quarter of game 2.  He showed up strong for 3 quarters.
