Anyone wanna buy my used rotors and calipers from my M3? I'll sign them haha
partner in crime
Jeff Van Gundy on OKC w/o KD: "I think a great goal for them would be .500, a little bit over. That would be a tremendous accomplishment."
Stunning thing in the GM survey: Kevin Durant is tied for 2nd with Anthony Davis for "player you'd want to start a franchise with" question.
Thank heavens, preseason is finally over for the Thunder. They wrapped it with a 105-91 loss to the Jazz, going 2-5. Perry Jones had 20.
Thunder finish the preseason with four straight double-digit losses by a combined 85 points. Regular season begins next Wednesday.
Serge Ibaka and Nick Collison a combined 4-of-6 from three in the first half.
Nick Collison's first 10 minutes of the presesason: corner three, wing three, smooth drive and finger roll. 3/3, 8 pts. Also: What?
OK. Nick Collison has forced me to tweet. He's now 2-for-2 from 3. Swished both. One from the right corner. One from the right wing.
Kevin Durant is at the Thunder's game against Utah tonight. Sitting in a suite.
Nick Collison just entered. Making his preseason debut after returning from an ankle sprain.
Enes Kanter just drilled a corner three, then did one of the stranger celebrations I've seen. Looked like he was unpeeling his face.
Serge Ibaka wing threes are gonna be a thing this year. Especially with Durant out. Just nailed one a second ago.
The Steven Adams stache is slowly reemerging.
Third straight game Scott Brooks has gone with this starting lineup. I'd expect to see it on opening night http://t.co/DUC7U7mxw8
Scott Brooks said Reggie Jackson (wrist) "didn't feel comfortable" after their workout yesterday. Still expects him to be ready for opener.
Nick Collison makes his preseason debut for the Thunder tonight. No Reggie Jackson.

Reduce chances to draft a cornerstone player and you widen the gap between bigs and smalls. Smart management is supposed to be the equalizer
OKC uses the draft for a reason: It isn't a destination. Pau Gasol didn't pick Chicago for more money. He picked it because it was Chicago.
All that reckless spending you did anyway? No worries! Essentially the new cap is Amnesty 2.0.
The repeater tax was billed as this scary thing to tone down big market spending. And now the cap is set to jump substantially.
Re: lottery reform: The system has already been rigged against small market teams, despite a PR push from the league about so-called parity.
Westbrook "Since I've been hurt I know what it feels like to not play So now I just want to play every game. At this point, I like 82 games"
Westbrook: "I like playing basketball. Actually, I love playing basketball. So I have no problem with playing 82 games."
Westbrook: "The preseason needs to be shortened, for sure. I just think that it's too long. Seven games. It should be 3 or 4 games."
Westbrook also said he doesn't think the NBA needs to shorten the length of games or the season. But he would like fewer preseason games.
Russell Westbrook said he prefers the game stay 48 minutes and the regular season stay 82 games: "Shorter preseason...two or three games."
Russell Westbrook said he will not sit one night of back-to-backs this year: "No restrictions buddy"
Russell Westbrook when asked if he'll play both games of back-to-backs this season: "I don't have no restrictions, buddy."
Kevin Durant only expected to be on his scooter until Thursday. Will be the best man in a walking boot this Saturday at a wedding.
Durant: "It's a win-win. I'm learning a lot while I'm out and my teammates are getting opportunities."
Durant: "It's going to give guys opportunities to play, build their confidence."
Durant on Westbrook: "He's going to do a great job. I'm not worried about Russ ... I'm excited for the opportunity he has right now."
Kevin Durant: "I've been antsy since I got out of surgery. Seen that Cleveland-Chicago game last night and wanted to get out there."
Durant: "I've been antsy since I came out of surgery. I seen that Cleveland & Chicago game last night & I wanted to get out there and play"
Durant on what he's told Westbrook: "Just stay who you are. You don't have to change what you do."
Durant said he's told Russell Westbrook to "stay who you are. You don't have to change what you do."
Durant: "I'm not going to rush it."
Durant on possibly coming back sooner: "Nah, I'm not going to rush it all. That's one thing I'm not going to do."
Durant said he had a screw placed in his foot.
Durant: "I feel like Nick Saban on my scooter, just rolling from court to court."
Durant on his current role: "I feel like Nick Saban, just rolling around on my scooter court to court."
Kevin Durant: "I feel like Nick Saban, rolling around in my scooter giving advice"
Kevin Durant on his foot surgery: "It was definitely a different experience. I had never been injured before."
Kevin Durant just rolled in -- literally, on a scooter -- to the press conference.
Injured players must talk at least once during extended absence. This Kevin Durant presser is not expected to come with updated timetable.
Kevin Durant will speak with the media in about 10 minutes.

Nick Collison was a limited participant in Thunder practice today. Also a chance he makes his preseason debut tomorrow night.
Reggie Jackson went through a full practice today. A chance he returns from wrist injury tomorrow.
