Very good win tonight....I think we win 1(1 of 2) in Memphis.
People forget that Perkins essentially missed the entire season. He only played in 29 games this season. 17 of those are after the trade. He still isn't into game shape and he is playing pretty well.
Nate Robinson may be one of my favorite players on the team. Going to the games and seeing this guys energy level, literally cannot sit still, while getting no minutes is amazing. His positive attitude has od to factor into a part of this teams chemistry. My wife thinks he should be out with the Thunder Girls because of him being essentially a cheerleader
Is Nate cleared to play?
Seems like he could provide instant offense if we stagnate some. I am not trying to completely rely on him, but he is a really talented guy.
Drunk posting.... I meant to circle Eric and Nate, not Eric and Fleetwood Mac. DOH!!
Love Nate's energy and personality, but he is a 5-8 chucker that plays no defense. Does not need to take a single minute from Maynor, Cook or Harden.
If you gave me $4.2 million a year, I think I could muster up similar energy.
Nate will get more playing time next year for sure and it allows the Thunder front office more bargaining power.
I just think our rotation is pretty set and Scott Brooks doesn't like changing things up.
Expect Harden to be in our starting lineup next year...his defense has improved and he is our future SG.
Sefolosha is a good defender but with Harden, RW, & KD in the game...it would be hard for any team to stop our offense.
Harden won't start for the same reason that O.J. Mayo doesn't start for Memphis. If you remove his offense from the second unit. Then we get little to no offense while our starters sit. I like Harden way more that Sef, but he is more valuable as a spark off the bench than he would be if he were taking shots from KD and Russ.
No he is our SG right now. He plays more minutes and plays at the end of games. Thats all that matters, who starts is irrelevant.
