Trade Proposal: Thunder acquire Paul Millsap

  The Oklahoma City Thunder lost free agent scorer Kevin Martin to the Timberwolves on Tuesday. While the team still has plenty of perimeter scoring in Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, it needs a consistent third scoring option to go alongside them. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be a guard.   Serge Ibaka had a great season...

  Somewhere Stromile Swift is smiling…..   The Memphis Grizzlies are one away from going farther than they ever have as a franchise…the Conference Finals.

Recap: Grizzlies take 3-1 lead vs OKC

  The first half of this game looked like the Thunder were determined to tie this series. Oklahoma City had Memphis playing passive basketball, while Serge Ibaka was reborn on the offensive end. He was making shots inside and out, a rarity in this series. The Thunder even held a 17-point during the second quarter.   The end of the first...

Rockets win despite ‘Hack Asik’ strategy

  At the start of the game, you just got the feeling that the Houston Rockets had new life. From the second quarter on, they had more than that…they had the lead. It was one they would not relinquish against the higher seed Oklahoma City Thunder.   Scott Brooks was so frustrated by the 4th quarter that he...

Recap: Rockets go small, Thunder still win

  Rockets head coach Kevin McHale made a bold move for Game 2 in Oklahoma City. He pulled his starting PF Greg Smith and went with a small starting lineup. Back-up PG Patrick Beverley is now the starting SG in Houston.   The move, which originally reeked of panic, got the desired effect. Houston matched the Thunder‘s speed and...

Should Blake Griffin have retaliated?

  I don’t think Blake Griffin is soft. The man is just a shooting guard in a power forward’s body. He prefers to go over and around guys as opposed to just plain bullying them inside. Regardless, he’s still a beast who few players want to matchup with downcourt. That being said, when Griffin reacts to...

Ibaka facing suspension?

  Reputation or no reputation, I don’t see a way that Serge Ibaka avoids suspension for what he did to Blake Griffin on Sunday afternoon. As the Los Angeles Clippers mounted a furious comeback late in the game, Griffin was repeatedly giving his team second chance opportunities off the offensive glass. Ibaka then decided...

Kobe, Cuban angry at Fisher?

  Derek Fisher re-joined the Oklahoma City Thunder this week, weeks after being granted his release from the Dallas Mavericks…and months after loitering around the Lakers practice facility in El Segundo. It turns out that both those teams have a beef with Fisher’s new gig. Mark Cuban was “agitated” by the recent transaction, according to...

Bad joke: Thunder bring back Fisher

  There’s a serious case of deja vu in Oklahoma City. According to ESPN, the Thunder are expected to sign Derek Fisher this week, just as they did around this time last season. This is a joke, right? OKC let Fisher walk as a free agent last summer after a not-so-impressive Finals run vs Miami. The team...

Thunder acquire Ronnie Brewer

  Ronnia Brewer will now be clanking jumpers down in Oklahoma City. The Thunder have acquired the defensive swingman from New York for a future 2nd round pick. The Knicks now have an open roster spot, one they’ll likely use on a big man. Rasheed Wallace will not be returning anytime soon. Does this...
