    The last two games were fun. This one should be interesting, if only to see how much damage Russell Westbrook and Co. can do to the psyche of our young Kings.

    The mascot of OKC is Rumble the Bison, whose name derives from the sound thunder makes.

    Aside from Slamson, Rumble is one of my favorite mascots. His interaction with the fans is a lot like our favorite lion, which is possibly why Rumble won the NBA Mascot of the Year award in 2009. Incidentally, I think Slamson is long overdue for recognition by the NBA for everything he does.

    Once again, it'll be about heart and hustle, energy and enthusiasm. It'll be about assessing the potential of the kids, and maybe taking a last look or two at the veterans who most likely won't be coming back. For some, it will be about protecting those potential draft picks. I'll be honest...we're on the road so I really won't care if we lose, provided we lose because we're simply not as good as the Thunder and not because we don't want to win.

    I'd like to see Malachi back sooner rather than later. Give the future players of the Kings a chance to start to gel, to learn as much as they can about either other without too much stress.

    I hate early games BTW. Traditionally, I just don't recall us ever doing well in matinees on the road.

    I think it is hilarious that I am within striking distance of the game freaking master, Telemachus. I am proud to say that I knew him when he was a young twerp.

    Curious to see how Skal does against Taj Gibson who has been a solid defender at PF for years now. Will be a good test.

    I've never been to Oklahoma but Buddy has spent the better part of 4 years there. Hope they treat him royally. If nothing else exciting was going on in the game I can see his teammates trying to feed him. Have fun guys and Kayte.

    Is Lieberman still an assistant on this team? I see her listed on the website but don't see her at the games?

    Part of the reason Skal might not be able to start is because Willie still needs to transition to being a full time 5 without Koufos in there.

    Joerger just said the Thunder getting Taj/Doug was the wisest move at the deadline? He says some things. The other day he said something about hating the fact that Chris's is doing well in the Bee, sarcasm doesn't come across in print

    Steven Adams looks like Russell Brand

    Taj Gibson is balder than Kosta #expertanalysis

    Cauley-stein watched that drive, rebounding not quite acceptable, though boxing out improving slowly

    It's probably time to stick PapaG in just because size.

    Lieberman is on extended personal leave taking care of her mother.

    Nice call. I'd like to see him smack the crap out of Adams. :p

    Or at least tug on his pony tail then point to someone else and say "he did it". :)

    Who is the guy on the Thunder who looks like Wolfman?

    Papa starting to look (at least to me) like he just might belong out there. Good to see. :)

    3 fouls may have had something to do with it.

    Papa G looked good...if only because he BOXES OUT!

    Little impatient on the hook shot.

    OKC has A LOT of good players.

    Maybe a Kevin Durant away from being a favorite...

    Does he normally make those, Grant?

    I hate KKs quarter hook

    PapaG needs extended minutes today. WCS and Skal are getting beat down. At least Papa has the size to be... less beat down.

    Seems like a douchey place to sit(presti). Not sure why...

    A lineup of Collison/Hield/Temple/Tolliver/Kosta certainly isn't ideal for my viewing pleasure.
