    If Russ were going to move the 2, which he's not, why wouldn't Reggie just play PG? Tony Parker isn't a traditional PG. Is everyone complaining about him? Russ is actually a pretty solid passer and his assist numbers back it up. And, Thabo is definitely a 2. Just not a very good one.

    I could see us running a system where Reggie and Russ have somewhat interchangeable roles to take advantage of what the defense gives. Our offensive system needs improvement, but Russ doesn't need to move positions in my opinion. He has probably been the second best player in the playoffs behind LeBron all while playing PG.

    I like Greivis Vasquez. He was a high school teammate of Durant's. Then try for Aaron Affalo, college teammate of Westbrook's. If you get those two the second team becomes better and they can mix in with the first team as needed. I don't know who we'd trade to Orlando for Affalo unless they'd want Pleiss and PJ and a draft pick.

    Afflalo wouldn't fit in our trade exception so we'd have to trade back some contracts... Who else besides Perk? I just don't see how that deal happens. I'd love to have Afflalo though. He'd really help space the floor.

    Congrats to the Spurs. You earned it. Hope the damage from the riots don't cause too much damage.

    For the 4th time in 5 years, the team that eliminated the Thunder won the title.

    After watching the Spurs destroy the Heat in the finals I think it would be fair to say that the Thunder were the second best team this year.

    Yep!

    And they are getting older, while we are maturing.

    It also demonstrated how much better the teams in the west were vs. those in the east.

    Bodes well for next season and beyond.

    Spurs will still be a beast next playoffs season. Regular season doesn't apply when it comes to them.

    As long as Greg Popovich is coaching the Spurs, They will be contenders.

    The Spurs deserve it! As for the rioting in San Antonio, that's something we Texans don't resort to unless it's needed.

    2014 NBA Champions!

    Give it up to the San Antonio Spurs!

    Coach Greg Popovich guarded their minutes; inserted the best match-ups as Erik Spoelstra & Miami blew a gasket trying to counter the Spurs' moves. The Ray Allen move killed the Heat's bench.

    Coach Popovich mastered his teams' strengths. He did not have three franchise players (James, Wade & Bosh) to bring home a well-deserved championship.

    Thunder fans, our day will come sooner than you think...

    There are lot of great teams (see the early-2000 Kings, mid-2000 Suns as recent examples) that never got a title when it seemed likely. Nothing is inevitable, but the Thunder are still in a great position to compete. And that's all you can ask for sometimes.

    2014 NBA Draft

    June 26, 6:30 p.m. Barclays Center, Brooklyn - ESPN

    We have the 21st & 29th picks in the NBA draft. Are there some possible 'diamonds-in-the-rough' in this upcoming draft? We will have to replace Fisher. Sefolosha & Butler are to be determined...

    What are our needs(?):

    1. Consistency and depth at the center position 5.
    Steven Adams was a great find. We need back up; another big man like Adams, who attacks and shoots with confidence. Ibaka can be used as a 4 or 5.

    2. Good back up guards, 1-2 (Fisher's gone).
    Will Reggie Jackson be resigned? We need an insurance backup to Westbrook & Jackson.

    3. Two-three additional bench players, 2-3-4 who aren't afraid to attack the paint and shoot.
    Development of Perry Jones? PJIII needs increased playing time to gain confidence and develop his skills; his potential hasn't been challenged.

    Build through the draft, pick up a few veterans...

    NBA Orlando Summer League, July 5-11 NBA-TV

    Ten Participants: Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, Orlando Magic and Philadelphia 76ers.
