Throughout the week some of you drop some brilliant or at least somewhat thoughtful comments and so this is a try at highlighting some of them. Disclaimer: It’s not that I necessarily agree with all of them, but they were interesting and for the most part, well put. Everything sic’d.
Umm, a-freaking-men. (Danny): Last summer it was frustrating to have so much controversy hanging over my new NBA team. And it is frustrating to have the “OKC vs. Seattle” topic constantly relived by people in the national media (Simmons, for one).

As the Thunder improve, they will begin to make a name for themselves as a quality and exciting playoff-caliber team, and the old “OKC vs. Seattle” topic will fade away.
You mean, you don’t like 105 degree temperatures, constant wind and impossibly flat terrain? (J.G.) To me, the sheer fact that this has even become an issue reveals the over-sensitivity of either A) One individual who has a small but rabid group of supporters, or B) An entire state’s general population to the point that it sniffs of an unfortunate and needless inferiority complex. I think Nick is witty and spot-on, always have, and honestly, I think it would be even worse for Nick to say, “Man, nothing compares to the landscape of Oklahoma, not even the Emerald City.” I mean, come on, I live here and that would just be a slap in the face to common sense.
