I’m not a big fan of propaganda, so I rolled my eyes a bit yesterday when I saw my News 9 homeboy Storme Jones – a former Inhofe Senate staffer – promoting an hour-long chum-a-thon with Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt:…
I don’t ask for a lot in this world, but can we pass a law that requires all Oklahoma elected officials to have video of themselves playing “Taps” ready and available on the Internet?
You know, just in case they resign from public office in disgrace and we want something that’s both ironic and symbolic to share…
There are two things that have been true about Thunder GM Sam Presti:
1. He knows what he’s doing when drafting in the lottery
2. He doesn’t listen to the consensus when it comes to the lottery
If Presti had been influenced by who he should take, he would have taken Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio in the 2008 and 2009 drafts. Instead, he took Russell Westbrook and James Harden. Last season, he definitely would not have selected Josh Giddey if the opinions of the “draft experts” factored into his decision-making.
This season, the conventional wisdom is that Presti will choose between whichever of the three freshman big men Orlando does not take when he is on the clock with the second pick overall. You know what happens when you assume, right?
