    Haha, that was great from PG when asked about being surprised they set the 3-point record without Russ and Melo... "Not surprised at all, those guys can't shoot."

    He's pretty good
    Been my point all along. As 2121 says, he's been a top 5-8 player in the league the past few years. He looked anything but that, at least consistently, early in the season. Lately he's been almost as good as ever. He started hot against the Lakers the other night and reverted back to his early season ways. He's REALLY good and that's what this team needs from him nightly.

    He hasn't been a top 5-8 player. And this is easily the best season of his career. He's improved his already very good defense and dramatically improved his 3 point shooting.

    You gotta take that right?

    I'm gonna take that and the parlay of "not a big deal" and "Russ being hurt is even more of a reason George would want to stay" from OKC fans to wrap up a betting weekend.
    How did that work out for you?

    Abrines can shoot when he gets consistent minutes. Who knew?

    Yep, the same beano that said Ron Paulus would win 3 heismans at ND. Good times.

    The Beano Cook I was referring to said it was 2 times, and Ron Powlus.

    But either way, Beano was a great listen to on the radio.

    Good times indeed.

    Westbrook and Melo participated in non contact practice but still TBD for tomorrow. Huestis chipped a tooth and got 4 stitches in his tongue from that contact on the Brooks drive.

    Before the injury, there were some serious debates as to if he was as good, and/or could get better at basketball than #****made. I thought they were ridiculous at the time, probably just as ridiculous now.

    I expected him to be a shake more consistent offensively. But he's gotten about to the spot there that I expected. Defensively, he's been better than I expected but not a ton.

    What's been weird to me, is that lots of pundits said, "He's obviously not mentally engaged and leaving the Thunder ASAP!" While he was playing defense at a DPOY level and to me, that requires more mental engagement than All Star Level Offense, assuming you've got the talent and skill to do both.

    It's amazing that a league MVP from 7 years ago is so bad he can't even get signed by anyone. We've seen it coming for a long time. But Derrick Rose has fallen so far.

    Not sure he wants to play, and that shows. TBH, I'd have a hard time with the grind of the season too if I was paid as much as he is. I'd be laying on a beach.

    1 torn ACL, torn meniscus like 2 or 3 times in the other knee. Tendonitis all over both legs. Dude joked about feeling like an old man 6 years ago. I had to google to make sure I got all the injuries correct and this is two years old. http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...htmlstory.html

    I'd be done too. Especially if I just sorta played because I was good and didn't necessarily LOVE THE GRIND!

    so do we beat the rebuilt Cavs tonight?


    I say we do. And it starts a 12 game losing streak for the Cavs. And Lebron bails to the LAL this summer because of it. And PG goes to LAL with him. DAMN IT! Why'd we have to win tonight!?!?

    In that case, Russ & Melo should sit and let PG see what it would be like to be in Los Angeles with young talent that can't beat LeBron... Simultaneously making King James feel that there is no reason to leave Cleveland, it's a total win-win from this loss type strategy...

    Big night tonight.

    Minny has the Rockets at home and the Spurs are seven point dogs at Denver.

    The Thunder obviously have their hands full but if things break right they could be 1 game back of the 3 seed at the end of the night.

    He could probably guard the 3pt line better than Abrines.

    He’d whine at the refs the whole game tho...

    Russ is really rusty, not like himself so far, and the game is close. I'm liking that.

    It’s funny, Presti has been “trying” to find a 3 and D guard for the better part of a decade...and yet the Cavs managed to find three of them in the span of one trade deadline...

    They shot 53% from 3 and we shot 25%. Plus Russ wasn't himself. I'm liking our chances.

    At this point I just hope Russ heals up over the all star break. That ankle clearly isn't even close to right.

    Cavs look completely revitalized. Amazing what killing a cancer can do for someone.

    Abrines needs a permanent seat next to Singler for the rest of the season.

    We lost a guy for the season who could have been first team all defense, good thing Presti didn't do jack shit at the trade deadline to try and alleviate that loss.

    No trades were made largely because the Thunder "preferred not to include" T Ferg in any trades, and now he's going to rack up DNP CDs for the rest of the season.

    Gold Jerry, that's gold.
