All true. Plus Griffin and Kaman can afford to use drivers, so they don't have to deal with parking - a consideration that's often enough to discourage me from trying to stop for coffee or such in West Hollywood.

While a great story (who wouldn't love to smack bieber), the chances of Griffin assaulting what I think is still a minor, plus said minor's bodyguards not doing anything, is a bit far fetched. Plus Griffin strikes me as a lot smarter than some dude that would risk a lawsuit or getting into a street fight. Bieber does like to go gangsta, as long as his bodyguards are right next to him.

The only part of that story that is remotely believable is Bieber ordering a caramel apple machiatto.

I wish it was true though. I would straight up take back every negative thing I've said about Blake Griffin

Even though it's not true, I really appreciate the imagery.

so as much arguing as we do in here about our respective teams, we are all united in our hatred for Justin Bieber

How about what that piece of shit lebron said about himself last night lol. Now there's a despicable classless cretin.

i mean its kinda like kanye going on about how he's an artist and how the fashion world should bow down before him

lebron admittedly is at least top 10, maybe top 5. its hard to compare tho because rules have changed so much. like how can you compare a player before the 3 point line and after the 3 point line. or the defensive 3 second rule

the more i watch thunders games the more i begin to think what if the thunders are still not getting the most out of kevin durant? like what if he could be even better

trade russell westbrook for a rondo type of point guard and find out.

Any time a feeling of appreciation Lebron's talent/hard work creeps in, I quickly remember his flopping, his bitchiness, his overall feeling of entitlement and his moms duke getting impaled by a benchwarmer and then all is right in the world.

i was always curious how the thunder would look/perform with a more prototypical PG, but assumed that would never happen, and now have seen the light...

i'm not saying that OKC is better without westbrook... but lets just say the team is looking great with a proper PG running the show.

think about did something crazy like traded westbrook for kevin love and how good okc would be if love would take over perkin's spot lol8[1].gif

i think somebody like asik would actually be better tho (and closer to reality. timberwolves are in love with rubio even though he's possibly the worst shooter of all time. i don't understand how they would choose to build around rubio versus love). they don't need perkins to give good spacing. they need a primary rim protector with ibaka providing amazing secondary help. they're already developing in steven adams

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A108lT4IPyw&list=PLKWQ6utaWeJbfDHX1BxTI3ZITY2KzOgmh

i think it was the recent heats game where they had steven adams come off the bench for perkins the whole fourth quarter because perkins just can't guard a nimble shooting pf/c like bosh. dude is too slow. adams did the job really well. also adams is tough as shit. doesn't bat an eye when people punch him or shove him

also reggie jackson and jeremy lamb are developing really nicely. honestly thought thunders were going downhill after harden left and it was hard to see them continue a legacy with the money they have but the trades they made and the player development they pushed is turning out to be really good. obviously reggie jackson is no james harden, but lamb and jackson are filling out that role that kevin martin left really well


tbh (and very contrarian) i think westbrook is good for durant. durant's really good at this point forward thing. he's not a prototypical sf/pf hybrid. he doesn't need somebody to create plays for him because he can create plays for himself (super efficiently i might add) and the rest of the team can create plays for him too. i think what he needs is somebody to share the scoring duties. it seems like it'd be easier for opposing teams to deal with durant if they know he's almost always going to be the one to score. westbrook brings an element of misdirection.

watching thunders going iso on durant all the time gets kind of boring even if he gets 40 a night. id rather watch really good sets

one thing i've really liked seeing is this ultra big pick and roll. like durant and ibaka or nowitzki and dalembert. can't do anything about it. can't help out. can't stick to him. lose lose.

one thing i hate is brooks being in love with fisher. seriously fisher pulls off a few lucky threes and he gets major minutes even though he clearly can't defend or do much else
