Well, I caved. Daily Thunder is now Twittering. I know, how lame. Twitter was so two months ago. But hopefully it will be an easy way to stay updated with new stories and the like. And also, because I’m sure you’re all just dying to know what I’m doing at 10 p.m. on a Tuesday night. Just put my feet up on the coffee table. And now I’m taking a sip of Diet Dr. Pepper. Is someone at the door? Oh, that’s just the TV. How many characters do I get with thi– You know, that type of stuff. I also reserve the right to randomly stop and abandon it whenever I dang well please.
The Puns are Starting to Bore Me draft redux: “OKC, Kevin Love: Speculation says that the Thunder will draft Blake Griffin if awarded the no.1 pick in the 09 draft. Why wait until then? The Thunder get a legit double/double guy in Love to place alongside Kevin Durant while still keeping Jeff Green at the 4. They miss out on a PG, but with the 09 draft stocked with guards, they can afford to pass on one this year.” If you’re wondering, Russell Westbrook was taking third by the Wolves.
FreeDarko on KD’s quote to the Boston Globe and more: “Durant has more of an uphill battle in this respect, since despite his college hype he’s been all but invisible this season. Still, this can’t last much longer, and if next season the recognition comes, and the fans flock, by 2010 OKC might not be a joke any longer. But more importantly is Durant’s conviction, even good-natured shock, and just how brilliantly-engineered this team’s future is. Sam Presti is smart. Sure, being surrounded by bikinis and beaches is nice, as would time spent in a national spotlight you don’t have to earn. And yet we’ve seen that the Knicks can tumble into oblivion, even before the economy collapsed. Presti will not mess up when it comes to developing this team and its players. You could say similar things about Pritchard. If team markets are becoming more and more negligible, and the perilous state of all things financial makes the astute GM more precious than ever, how far are we from Presti being what keeps Durant in OKC?”
I like how KD has been say glowing things about Oklahoma City all year but when some major newspaper in the northeast quotes him on it, everyone perks up. And why does everyone seem so shocked by him saying he loves this city? Keep Reading…
