    The day Ibaka grows a spine and taunts a fellow big man (something I have never seen him do) is going to be a very poor day for him.

    He's paid millions to play well EVERY GAME, and he sucked tonight with a -17, worst on the team.

    Bring on Flynn!

    Yeah, OKC is real cocky for a team that just arrived to one of the league's best.

    He got Nate fired this year. He's earned every dime as far as I'm concerned.

    Had he arrived in shape, listened to his coach and played hard, we'd be 2nd seed right now and clicking like crickets on a warm August evening.

    So PapaG favors the second half scoring margin stat while Maris61 favors the +/- stat. Please welcome the Irrelevant Stat Society...

    You forgot the the middle bit of the story in May, when we somehow fritter away home-court advantage and lose 6-2 to the plucky, upstart 7th seed Denver Nuggets.

    Bad Blazers shooting and atrocious home cooking, and that's all she wrote. On the bright side, we're still in the running for the lottery.

    Durant is no Kobe or Jordan on the defensive end. Nicolas could take him. Sure, Durant made him work defensively, but he should've taken it right back at him on the other end. That's if we think Nicolas can be that building block player that we all want him to be.

    Looks like people are starting to see things about Nic that I've been saying all along.

    The guy just doesn't get it/have it. He's the definition of a role player and is hardly a building block. If he's your 2nd or 3rd best player you are in trouble.

    Batum is worth $6M, but if it's $10M, let it ride.
