Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference
I remember the same outrage last offseason. Everyone else is getting better but the Thunder! (Thunder win 59 games, go to the WCF again.)
That Spurs team that crushed the Heat? The Thunder were 5 seconds from a Game 7 against them despite having a one-legged Serge Ibaka.
According to my mentions, the Thunder are not very good. Amazes me how far away some people think the team is from a title.
Also, remember: The Thunder are trying very hard for Gasol. But free agency is a two-way street. Sometimes, the guy picks somewhere else.
One important thing to remember should the Thunder miss out on Gasol: They still have the two best players in the Western Conference.
That's not Thunder kool-aid. That's truth. With or without Pau Gasol or Mike Miller or Anthony Morrow or whoever, OKC is still a problem.
Remember this as well. All the teams making moves this summer still have to deal with two things: Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant.
But if it doesn't work, OKC is still confident in what it has. That's important to remember. That and there's still only $5.3 million avail.
As we've seen, OKC did everything it could do to get Gasol. He's the type of talent that rarely is available, especially at a discount.
And if you're asking OKC's "plan B," I don't have any reason to believe there is one. Gasol was getting every ounce of OKC's attention.
And if you're asking the OKC's "plan B," I don't have any reason to believe there is one. Gasol was getting every ounce of OKC's attention.
For those asking if the first re-tweet was credible, an unquestioned credible media member is reporting the same in my last re-tweet.
The last re-tweet is a report that says Pau Gasol's is deciding between the Bulls and Spurs.
The Thunder and Spurs are the best fits for Gasol. But Chicago could be a title contender that also is capable of offering more money.
I'd say that's excellent news for the Thunder. Suggests Gasol is indeed willing to take less to play for a contender. CHI is the wild card.

Ended summer league on a good note, still learning a lot. This is just the start
Wonder what Phoenix's signing of Isaiah Thomas means for Eric Bledsoe. Remember, the Suns drafted Tyler Ennis as well.
I'm happy for Bosh. He sacrificed big time the last four years, and now he's going to feature prominently and remind everyone how good he is
Rockets could be quiet players for Pau Gasol now after missing out on Bosh. Remember: Morey got him in 2011 in the nixed CP3 trade.
Daryl Morey would like to rescind that Jeremy Lin trade now, please and thank you.
Seems like Chris Bosh would have fit perfectly in Houston. A bit of a break for the Thunder and the rest of the West.
Thunder love veterans, desperately need shooting and could use a two-guard. At least worth gauging Ray Allen's interest.
Seems HIGHLY likely that Ray Allen follows LeBron to Cleveland, but if things hit any kind of snag, OKC seems like a perfect fit.
Pau Gasol's last tweet translated: "Now I am very close to making the decision. Thank you all for your interest and support! # FreeAgency"
The Heat should just throw a max deal at Lance Stephenson, hand him the team and get weird.

Solid performances from the Thunder today: -Perry Jones: 20 pts, 4/6 on 3s -Mitch McGary: 18 pts, 5 rebs, 2 blks -Josh Huestis: 17 points
Thunder finishes summer league with a win over the Heat. A banner day for Miami basketball.
If all goes according to plan, the Rockets will have a nasty starting five next season: 1. Beverley 2. Harden 3. Parsons 4. Bosh 5. Howard
Perry Jones is developing nicely as a 3-point shooter.
The bottom line is Andre Dawkins is one of the best shooters in the world. If you're looking for just that, he could be a inexpensive option
I'm not dismissing the experience factor. It's the reason M. Miller is a better option than A. Morrow. Experience matters. But it also costs
The answer is about $4 million.
The Thunder needs a shooter. Andre Dawkins is a shooter. Sounds radical. But, really, what's the difference between him and Anthony Morrow?
If Heat had won third straight and Wade looks good in the Finals, does LeBron still leave? I think he does, but an interesting 'What if?'
So... does LeBron wear No. 23 again? Or stick with No. 6?
Thunder takes the court for its seventh place game against Miami. Steven Adams and Jeremy Lamb wearing sweatpants. They're out.
The Philadelphia 76ers are your 2014 Orlando Pro Summer League champions.
Pat Riley say anything yet?
You know, it wouldn't be a terrible plan for the Heat to pursue Melo and Pau Gasol, and try to piece together a quasi-Eastern contender.
What do the Heat do now? Blow the cap space and try to instantly rebuild this summer, or do the Laker thing and sign a bunch of 1-yr deals?
Dwyane Wade is currently asking if he can un-opt out.
Bovada just sent out updated odds. Cleveland now favorites to win next year's NBA title. Heat, well, not close: http://t.co/ERPGRVl24D
Funniest part of this is Cleveland holds Miami's 1st-rounder next season (from original LeBron decision). Heat may be lottery team.
*Micky Arison starts writing letter in wingdings*
Pretty bummed LeBron didn't write that story in SI in comic sans.
VH1 morning music gets u up and going lol
Just a note: The Thunder's $6.6 million trade exception created in the Kevin Martin sign-and-trade expires in 24 hours.
Complete sked: Orlando-Detroit at 8 a.m., Boston-Indiana at 10 a.m., Philly-Memphis at noon, OKC-Miami at 2, Houston-Brooklyn at 4. All EST.
The summer league Thunder will play the summer league Heat.
There will be a new champion in the Orlando Pro Summer League. The Thunder will play in the 7th place game at 1 p.m. central on Friday.
Great team dinner at Sam Snead's Tavern
A. Morrow or Pau Gasol? Pretty easy decision, folks. The Thunder can't have both, and OKC can't go after one while waiting on the other.
Imagine Wade as OKC's Manu Ginobili. Obviously it isn't happening because Wade isn't taking a midlevel deal, but still. Fun thought.
Ridiculous thought: If Bosh goes to HOU and LeBron to CLE, that leaves Wade alone. And what position do the Thunder need to fill...?
LEBRON'S WEBSITE JUST LOADED FOR ME. (And it is unchanged.)
Maybe they bring him over. Maybe they use him in trade. Maybe they leave him overseas. But OKC will make decision on its terms, not Pleiss'.
Doesn't really matter what the president of Tibor Pleiss' cash-strapped team says. Thunder control situation. He can't force his way over.
3) the Thunder feel they're out of the Pau Gasol running and want to use their cap space on signing Pleiss.
Three things I see as possible with the Pleiss thing: 1) the president of Baskonia is wrong; 2) Pleiss is part of a sign-and-trade or ...
