Oklahoma City Thunder Rumors
Do you think the team does anything with PJ Dozier after the report that came out? Erik Horne: No. The Thunder and these NBA teams don’t pay the NCAA any mind. Improper benefits have nothing to do with their business once these guys become pros. … Now, will Dozier (and Josh Huestis) change representation in the future? Both are repped by ASM Sports. But I haven’t received any indication yet that Huestis will do so.
Logan Murdock: Steve Kerr very complimentary of Paul George: “The perfect modern day defender.” “He’s got the length and the speed, got the strength to guard on the post and can pretty much guard 1 through 4. “And where the league’s going, he can probably guard some 5s.”
Carmelo Anthony watches the sport change around him, sees offenses expand from sideline to sideline and from baseline to half court like filled lungs, and he says, “I watch guys work out in the summer, and it’s just straight shooting 3s and pick-and-rolls and ballhandling. Nobody works on the stuff I work on. It’s a lost art.”
He knows all the criticisms, could recite them chapter and verse, and he says, “To be honest with you, I think I might be the only person in the history of the NBA who gets criticized for what he’s great at.” He laughs hard at that, and he says, “That’s OK. I’d rather be criticized for something I’m great at.”
“In New York, there was so much going on with the organization and the city,” Anthony says. “It was very tense up there, and you never really get a chance to have stability there. Here, man, I’m having fun with the game again. The joy of it — that’s what guys know me as: laughing and smiling and enjoying the game. I think over the past couple of years I’ve lost that, and I think guys around the league have seen it.
