    well I guess that means he's demanding a trade to Portland. He's tasted our finest wares.

    Great, now Dan Sheldon is cracking on me on the radio for liking the idea of trading for Lamb. Really gonna suck for me if CJ goes out and takes Lamb's lunch money tonight.

    How the hell are we a game in the loss column behind the 3rd seed again?

    This west, man.

    Kemba went apeshit on Dame in Moda last year. Wanted to see a rematch but this would also be a good night to rest Dame given our road trip next week.

    You were doing fine until you pulled the old "where do I swipe my credit card?" joke.

    Even with Dame not at 100%, we should win this game.

    If we do, we'll move up to tied (with OKC) for 3rd in the West!

    Fuck Nike. I can't stand companies that are hypocrites. I prefer to get my shoes from someone who doesn't make theirs in sweatshops full of underpaid peasants while giving hundreds of millions to millionaires with fake afros who think they made some sort of social justice sacrifice for so called "oppressed" people.

    In as far as tonight's game goes, it's nice to finally be back facing serious teams. Hopefully our bench continues lighting things up.

    And Terry......let's try double-teaming Walker. Just TRY, Terry. Please.

    Interesting. My first thought was that Walker isn't good enough to warrant a double team. But here's a look at his stats compared to Dame -

    Wow. Walker is solid. He's just a step behind Dame in all the major categories.

    A concern with double teaming Walker is that he's a good passer. He has a higher USG% than Dame, but a lower TOV%. He definitely can make you pay if you leave a guy open.

    I figure someone who scores 40 points against us should probably be double-teamed at some point. But you make good points about his passing.
