10 worst OKC Thunder players of all time

When it comes to sports, the most common barbershop talk is along the lines of, “Who are the best players of all time?” It’s like arguing about the best Van Halen album – everyone has their opinion, but ultimately, it’s a futile exercise, because the correct answers are “Michael Jordan” and “Van Halen 1.” The […]

Ogle Madness VIII: Midwest Region (Lower Bracket)

Okay, it’s time for the rest of the Midwest region. I’m actually writing this intro Monday afternoon, and SON OF A BITCH I just read Serge Ibaka needs surgery, so hopefully nothing else horrible has happened to the Thunder on the injury front. Is there any way we can blame PJ Carliesemo for these injury […]

The Best Performances By Thunder Injury Replacements

Image courtesy of William Bennett Berry. It’s been another fantastic week, and no one can deny that. The Thunder have swept all four of their games, including revenge in Minnesota, another pounding of the Lakers, squeaking by Portland at home with some late defense, and a KD-Russ scorefest against Phoenix. But those wins have been […]

How Does the Thunder Take the Next Step?

With a week to reflect after losing the Western Conference Finals, it seems that most Thunder fans have returned to reality. There is still disappointment of failing to capitalize on the opportunity (particularly since the team was just as close to winning 4 games to 1 as they were losing by that margin), but it […]

Go Green…No Really, Go

NBA analysts are all euphoric in regards to the major trades consummated by Thunder General Manager Sam Presti just before yesterday’s trade deadline. “The Thunder’s trades for Kendrick Perkins and Nazr Mohammed basically put the finishing touches on a rebuilding project that began in Seattle in June of 2007, adding the low-post defense and interior […]

Peace, Love and Thunderstanding: Long Term Planning

Training camp started on Tuesday to usher in the second season of Thunder basketball.  While a minor trade (perhaps Brent Barry from Houston) might occur, or a rookie in camp could grab a roster spot, the team is pretty much set.  Gone from last season’s final roster will be: Desmond Mason Malik Rose Robert Swift Earl […]

Peace, Love and Thunderstanding: New Schedule

On Tuesday, the NBA released the 2009/10 schedule and answered many of the questions we have been asking. When does J.J. Redick come to town? This is the most pressing question to every true NBA fan in Oklahoma City.  When will former Duke star and the guy who I would pay to watch shoot free […]

Peace, Love and Thunderstanding: The Myth of Presti

When the Supersonics fired their former general manager, Rick Sund, I remember being very excited about the prospect of SamPresti being the guy in charge of basketball operations when the team moved here.  The guy, who graduated high school only one year before I did, was a wunderkind who was credited with convincing the San […]

Peace, Love and Thunderstanding: Changing Gears

For the past few weeks, the discussion for the Thunder has been almost entirely related to the NBA Draft.  I plan to take a break from that this week except to briefly discuss UConn giant Hasheem Thabeet. I have made it no secret that the Thunder drafting him would not be welcomed by me.  While […]

Peace, Love and Thunderstanding: Roster Decisions

The slate of Thunder games in Oklahoma City is over and now the city gets to experience its first off-season with long term consequences.  Back when I was the “HornetsCentral GM”, I wrote about the off season in which the Hornets drafted Hildric Simstrong, signed Peja Stojakovic, and traded for Tyson Chandler.  Analyzing those moves […]

Peace, Love and Thunderstanding: Season One Wrap

The first season of Thunder basketball is a wrap and it would be a mistake to label it as anything other than a success.  Sure, the 23-59 record was tough to watch unfolding, but people did.  In an economic situation that witnessed something like 75% of the league’s franchise hemorrhage money and a half dozen […]

Peace, Love and Thunderstanding: Garbage Time

With only five games remaining in the season, the Thunder have hit a new stage.  Not the wins and losses have mattered much since the 1-13 start basically ended any hope of the team competing for the playoffs, but after a long and trying year, these last weeks will feature the starters thinking ahead to […]
