Oh, the future was once bright for Clay Bennett and Aubrey McClendon's Thunder. After ripping the franchise away from the delightful Seattle fanbase (who then tried to rip out the collective hearts of Sacramento/force someone to overpay the Maloofs/force a city to pay for a new stadium with tax dollars), things appear to be in disarray.
Clay is a pompous dick as highlighted by the entire Save Our Sonics movement. And Aubrey McClendon is quite possibly evil as he mines the earth for natural gas and causes people's faucets to catch fire all while running a hedge fund on his own industry, drinking $400 bottles of wine EVERY NIGHT, and sitting in the front row of every Thunder home game.
So maybe the basketball karma gods are doing their thing? Did they overtake Patrick Beverly's body and cause him to "pull a Westbrook" by going for a steal at the end of the quarter thereby tearing the meniscus of Russell's knee and leading to the Grind It Out Grizzly's elimination of the Thunder 4-1 last night infront of pompous Clay and Evil Aubrey?
The Thunder were fun and cool last year with Durant, Westbrook, Harden and Ibaka. Things were bright after they got spanked by LeBron and the Heatles even if their offense was simpleton under Scotty Brooks in an age of crazy initial action used to disguise the real play, it was fun to see these guys create and use their natural gifts to kick everyone's ass on the hardwood (except when Perkins was on the floor).
But now people are panicking Durantula couldn't carry a team of meh's to the finals like LBJ once did in Cleveland therefore Kevin isn't as good as LeBron. Didn't everyone used to hate Westbrook's selfishness, somewhat lazy defense and inability to set Durant up? Why didn't Westbrook sit on the bench with his Thunderbros after his knee injury? Are those sideline chairs too small for his post-op knee to handle? Is Clay Bennett too damn cheap to amnesty Perkins even though it is obviously the smart basketball decision? The answer is obviously "yes". Look what he did to save a few bucks by trading Harden before the season began.
The Thunder will be good going forward. Westbrook and Durant are amazing players and Ibaka shouldn't continue to miss 75% of his jumpers. But the question marks have never been so many and so big.

Been a long time, but my love for Cameron has brought me back. As much fun as it is to watch the game alone with a bottle of Bulleit/bottle of Xanax, I think it would be more fun to watch it "together". I say we either put out a hashtag like #nextians so we can all follow on twitter, or else put out our handles so we can have the excitement of watching/enjoying round 2, but still have the option of never seeing/meeting each other. Also, I bought this (Can't figure out how to add a Warriors ball marker for $18.99). I did the same thing after Giants game 1. Yay! And Niners NFC Championship. Boo! Also, I built a putter rack, which has nothing to do with this but is superbly awesome. If you want to know how, or buy a putter holla!

|Klay made his first 9 shots, scored 30, made the playoffs|

Congrats Dubs. Don't go to baggage claim yet because this is just a quick stop and you've got some more traveling to do. The baggage robots running on IBM software will get your bags from your regs season plane and put them on your playoff craft (thanks, Coach Jackson. that was awesome).
You guys are excited and get to shave your beards now. In Steph's case, "thank the high and mighty lord Jesus" he's probably saying. Just because his face is now back to it's childlike, marketable state. Hopefully you're mom will be in the crowd a few times this playoffs? I know she still does Seth's laundry and lives in Raleigh or something (wherever Dell resides while doing Bobcat games).
Klay Thompson had one of his best games of the year until he kept shooting in the second half. He started off 9/9 and was icewater. His Washington State ass got into it with crazy Luke Ridnour the Oregon Duck in the 3rd quarter. That was on the only time Klay changed his expression. This year. There's potential that Klay's mom is hot but she doesn't flaunt her goods like Sonya does.
|This is Killa Klay and his Moms|
You guys deserve it. And grab a milkshake latenight. There's a Barneys and a Nations within a couple of miles of the rOracle. It'll be a subdued celebration, but still fun in a "all I care about is ballin' " and "praise the lord" kinda way. I'm not hating. I'm just saying that this is in stark contrast to 2007 when they were spraying b-lights all over the Portlandia visitors locker room and Czar Stern eventually had to tell Nellie to not pound brew pones at the podium for post game interviews. Something tells me that Jack and Landry play the veteran role by day but have secretly gone to about 55 strip clubs together this season.
This has been a pretty exciting season if you like defense and somewhat smart basketball. Even when the media tried to stir some controversy about the front office lying about Bognut's microfracture surgery nobody really cared. Bogut stopped smiling but has got his health up to where race-walking back on defense is fine. Bog's still shut down that Viking/defending Western Conference Player of The Week Pekovic last night. I think Pek made just two buckets over The Big Hobble. Limp all you want, Bogs. You know how to play defense and it's finally making a difference for these dubs.
Good on ya, Warriors. This has been a confidence building year. You guys belong here and this wasn't some crazy excitement PR hype BS like it was before. The plan is working. We all know that This Guy is excited to be back in the Playoffs as a Dub.

|I have to make this photo "Extra Large" so that we can see just what the heck is going on|
Anyway, the Warriors will probably lose all of their games in these things just for the simple fact that they shouldn't be allowed by Stern's Jersey Standards. No one but lovers of Lance will buy them. What's next, NBA'ers wearing long sleeves like that year when a few guys in the NCAA rocked them?
On another note, Nextian Toddmy and I went to Lagunitas Brewery for a Mandate (get it on!) this Saturday and were commenting how our male server was still wearing a yellow Livestrong bracelet. When asked why he still wore it after the Lance Scandal he said that he still really hates cancer. Made sense to me.
