Ramona Shelburne

The Thunder's choice: team needs to grow & evolve. How best to do that in a year that will be dominated by Durant's impending free agency?

Kevin Ollie to the #Thunder as head coach? It may take time, but that's OK. PODCAST with @FranchiseOK radio in OKC: sheridanhoops.com/2015/04/22/pod…

John Rohde

As of 2:25 p.m. CT, had yet to see a single tweet from #Thunder player on Scott Brooks firing. @FranchiseOK @steelyonsports

Kevin Pelton

The Thunder are operating with urgency ahead of Kevin Durant's free agency, and that cost Scott Brooks his job: es.pn/1DOA3Hi (In)

U can believe who u want on next coach of #Thunder. I believe @Adam Zagoria has it nailed. Kevin Ollie is their man: zagsblog.com/articles/unoca…

With Russell Westbrook's multiple knee surgeries and Kevin Durant's on-going foot problems, OKC Thunder needed a new MD, not a new coach.

Guess the real upshot of Brooks' firing is that Derek Fisher would have been well-served to play one more year in Thunder backcourt.
