Some karaoke would be good after the Thunder performance in Game 5. I mean…if Sam Presti and Clay Bennett are cool with what Billy Donovan gave them on the bench in Game 6 why should it matter to me.
I’m just a little blogger having some fun. So if they don’t care then why should I.
My glass half full take is the season was fun considering the Thunder was supposed to be tanking. We were all playing with house money and amazingly Golden State finished as the 15th seed in the West.
For me…not being able to watch Klay play this season was devastating.
I wouldn’t even look at film or have practice today. In hindsight Vegas had the Rockets as a five point favorite in a neutral bubble on Saturday with Westbrook coming back. That should have told us something.
I wonder if Dennis is a little nervous as Game 6 approaches. Of all the guys in the NBA… I wouldn’t want to fight and piss off PJ Tucker would be at the top of the list. Good thing for Dennis this isn’t hockey.
Does coaching matter? It appears so because Barry Trotz has the New York Islanders one game away from making the Eastern Conference Finals. I know Barry Trotz is a hockey coach, but if I were Clay Bennett I’d hire Barry Trotz and not in any way allow Sam Presti to select another Thunder coach.
Can you imagine a hockey coach putting at the point Lu Dort on the power play and sitting SGA and Danillo Gallanari? What sober sane person amongst us would do that?
The only thing I can figure is Billy Donovan reads the Daily Thunder and doesn’t know any better.
Anyway…I’m going to enjoy the game tonight. I’m thinking some chicken parm and some Italian beer. Maybe talk to the girls back in Italy who are following the Thunder on the blog.
