  • Thunder are missing Ibaka big time.

    Now you see why they chose to pay Ibaka instead of Harden.

  • It seems that the Thunder are going to get swept by the Spurs. The Thunder have the same problem that's plagued them the past few years. Never seems to change....they have zero presence in the middle. Thus teams with decent power forwards/Centers give them trouble. Spurs have more weapons than the Grizzlies did and that's why they will win the series. Even with Ibaka there, the Thunder wouldn't have much of chance winning. They need more. If Kevin Love is on the block, they need to go get him if they want to be serious contenders to win a championship. Get rid of Kendrick Perkins. That dude is useless.

  • They don't need a fantasy loving perimeter big man like Kevin Love, they just need a big man who can post up, play some defense and rebound and maybe hit a free throw or two.

    Get some Larry Sanders up in there. Or one of the young up 'n comers for a cheaper risk (Koufos?).

    Kinda fun being a San Antonian this time of year -- Particularly amused by the Barkley Thing going on.

    I can imagine it's not very fun for the chubbies Barkley is talking about, probably a little warm :lol:

    Sanders free throw percentage is way too low. Need someone who can shoot at least .700.

    Still would be better than what they are putting on the court right now. While Love may not be an inside presence on offense, he is capable of hitting the outside shot, three and would pull a bigger guy out to guard him. Thus allowing for more room inside. Something none of their other bigs do now (except for Durant).

    Defensively, Love averages 12.2 rebounds over his career. That's about twice what the best rebounder on the current roster for the Thunder averages.

    Love would deffinitely make the Thunder a much better team. He can provide what Harden did and offer more defensively. That's what's missing. They haven't been the same since they traded Harden.

    I liked those guys too when they were Sonics but the big three thing is a turn off..I do like the Spurs because they are supposed to be too old to win it and I can appreciate their fans giving Seattle a shout..How can we not root for them?

  • Good riddance, Oklahoma! Your time is running out..... soon the team will be busted up, reach mediocrity, free agents will come to look @ Oklahoma, hate it there, not sign, and the team will reach the status of the Houston Astros. Fans will stop going to games, Clay Bennett will lose millions. Then he will go home and cry about it to his wife, his wife will get tired of hearing it, divorce him, and he will fall into a great depression. He will sell the team for a quarter of what he paid to buy them to begin with, and several years later file for bankruptcy.

    Go Spurs!

  • Being realistic, though I am glad the Thunder are out, but it is just a matter of time before those guys are champions. I remember comparing them to the Dallas Mavericks of Mark Aquire, Rolando Blackmon, Derek Harper, Roy Tarpley, Detlef Schremp and others who never realized their potential and catching the ire of our OKC poster, but these guys are still very young.

    I still believe like I said a few years ago, once they go through the fire of trying to become champs, they could go on a Heat-like run of championships. I figured the Seahawks would have a similar period to make it to a championship and win, but it came sooner (thank your significant deity for that).

    Unfortunately, I think Clay Bennett and gang will get to see that trophy but maybe I will be dead by then and will not matter.

    I'm honestly not that bothered, to be honest. The Seahawks SB win and Liverpool's fantastic season have put less emphasis on the Thunder for me this year.

    I will say this though - it's time to look at other head coaches. Just don't like the Thunder offense at all. Too simplistic and ineffective against well-coached teams, especially in the playoffs. Oh well.

    I agree with the Doc though, just a matter of time before they get a ring or two. You guys enjoy this tho :)

  • I think Durant leaves for Brooklyn or Los Angeles or something when his contract is up. The Zombies are small-market and broke. They are so broke that they had to get rid of James Harden, IIRC. Plus, I'm pretty sure Westbrook and Durant don't like one another, or that's the sense I get without having actually seen them play.

    Anyway, if they don't win before Durant comes up for a new contract, they get to be the next Sacramento, which is both just and right in this world.

  • Karl feels the same way about the Thunder that Payton does, good luck with that. Money does talk but I think it would be a hard hard sell and in the end if he did take it he would be making the biggest salary in the league.
