    Klay tore his ACL last night. He was in full Klay Game 6 mode, too. Without him and KD the Warriors still took it to the wire. Amazing how stacked that team really is. If you took two of the best 3 players from any other team, they would get wrecked by full strength TOR.

    Congrats to the Raptors. With what looks like the end of the GSW dynasty for at least one upcoming season, the West is looking like a shootout. Hopefully we have some summer moves and get Dre back to get OKC in the hunt.

    Unfortunate series & night for the Warriors. Close out Oracle Arena with 3 straight losses; can't recall this ever happening to an NBA team in the finals. They did put up a fight.

    Injuries happen; it happened to Harden & Paul (w Houston) when GSW won one of their rings. Never saw the injury bug attack a team like it attacked the 2019 GSW.

    Raptors didn't have a player on roster drafted higher than 15th. Pretty amazing.

    the Warriors have played almost another season of games the last few years with all the deep playoff runs. All those games finally came back to haunt them and the injury bug finally came.

    Age: 20, Position: Forward, Height 6-8, Weight 228, Wingspan: 7’2.25” College: Kentucky
    Stat line: 15.2 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 blocks, Home Town: Dallas, Texas

    P.J. Washington could be a draft day steal for the OKC Thunder

    Kentucky forward, P.J. Washington is getting high praise around the NBA. TI analyzes if P.J. Washington would be a good fit for the OKC Thunder.

    It’s no secret that the OKC Thunder are in win-now mode with two established stars in Paul George and Russell Westbrook. The big issue? Their lack of shooters. Rumors have spread that OKC is aggressively looking to trade their 21st overall pick in order to get a veteran shooter, but until all is set in stone, anything is possible.

    Assuming the Thunder keep their 21st overall pick, they will most likely be going after a shooter. If they are somehow able to draft P.J. Washington, that will be a major steal. In many mock drafts, Washington has gone in the lottery, so for him to fall to OKC’s pick would be huge.

    With the NBA playoffs coming to a close, these days leading up to the draft will be nothing short of exciting.

    Utah traded for Mike Conley. They're a legit title contender now. Man, the West is brutal. Everyone is gearing up with a wounded Golden State.

    There are some great articles about David Stern on The Athletic. Very interesting guy. Apparently had quite a reputation for cussing people out, but always ended the conversation or phone call cordially. Unique talent!

    The Thunder were purchased for around $350 million. And now worth $1.5 billion. That's incredible. And we're clocking in at number 20, again, incredible. I believe we're either the smallest or second smallest market in the NBA. Pretty damn impressive.

    Thunder: Lack of hotels keeping Oklahoma City from hosting NBA All-Star game.

    Question response: I'd like to see the NBA All-Star game in Oklahoma City some day, replied Trae Young.

    "I think the fan base is amazing," Gilgeous-Alexander said. "Best fans I've been around in a long time. They're loyal and they love basketball." --replied Shai.

    "NBA requires 6,000 rooms near the arena and wants them to be four-star. Even with (the) Omni we're just not anywhere near that." --"I get this question from time to time," Holt tweeted.

    Not to be a downer as I love the strides OKC has made, but all star weekend here would be a disaster. Aside from hotel rooms, the entertainment options around the city are not up to par with those in major cities. We’re getting there, but we’re nowhere close yet.

    The next few NBA All Star Games locatoins have been set...

    2021- Indianapolis - 24th NBA Market Size
    2022 - Cleveland - 20th NBA Market Size
    2023- Salt Lake City - 25th NBA Market Size

    OKC is 28th in Market Size.

    I understand the Indy and SLC choices, as those cities have hosted major sporting events before, but if Cleveland can host an all-star game, OKC really shouldn't be too far off.

    Default Re: National Basketball Association

    OKC can host, they just need to build about 3-4 Omni like hotels downtown. Don't forget OKC hosted the NBA Finals back in 2012, which is next biggest NBA event after the All-Star Game. The probably is, downtown is overbuilt with 2-3 star 4 story cheap hotels.

    Omni has pretty much eliminated that sort of competition with their agreement with the city.
