Zzzzz-uhwha? Preview?


Another week, another half-assed preview. I can only apologize once again - I am switching jobs, and there's a lot of last-minute arrangements I have to deal with. Things should get back to normal in a week or so. In the meantime... it's time for one of PTR's trademarked Hack Previews (tm).


Not-so-much-of-anything, after the jump:

Breakdown

  • Point Guard - Westbrook could turn into a good player in a few seasons, but right now, Tony's about two white dots better than him. Two whole dots. There, I said it.
  • Off Guard - I always liked Thabo when he played for the Bulls. He's inconsistent, but I bet he'll flourish in the young Thunders' offense. We'll see. In the meantime, Roger should take nothing but long 2s off the P&R.
  • Center - Duncan looked better the other day. I'm happy. Krstic needs more vowels in his surname.
  • Power Forward - I like Jeff Green. Sorry, Matt.
  • Small Forward - Is OKC better without Durant? ...No, you idiots. This guy's good, really good. Even though he's a boring H-O-R-S-E player. We can only hope that Finley continues playing at a high level to offset some of the inevitable scoring from Kevin.
  • Bench - Malik Rose played 6 minutes in last Saturday's loss to the lowly Suns. He's the 4th player off the bench.
  • Coach - Scott Brooks? Right.
  • Intangibles - Manu and Yawn will be cheering for them.
  • Mojo - Did I mention I found a new job? With a much better salary?
  • Winners - Just count the dots.

Keys To The Game

  • Keys - Are for people with time to spare.
  • Hack - Reviews always work.
  • Record - We play the Thunder two more times before the end of the season. Yay.
