Darnell Mayberry talks about the future and the off season
Heat fan applauds the OKC faithful. “Last night I walked out of my seat and towards the exit with about 45 seconds left in the game. I didn’t want to see the Mavericks celebrate on our court, didn’t want to remember the season that way. But when I woke up this morning I started thinking about the way that the Oklahoma City Thunder fans gave their young team a standing applause when they lost to the Lakers two years ago. Incredibly, this year, even with the increased expectations and dreams of their first Finals appearance, the Thunder fans did it again after they lost a disappointing series to the Mavericks. I started thinking about that, and felt ashamed that I had left early. I owe you my thanks and applause. This city does too.”
Kendrick Perkins was on the “Jim Rome is Burning” show.
Las Vegas Blog has put out odds for the 2011-2012 season.
New York website predicts next season’s Western Conference. What to like: Kevin Durant, if he convinces Russell Westbrook to get him the ball in crunch time.
What to hate: Inside presence. Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins proved too brittle against Dallas’ massive front line.
The Post Up thinks the Thunder may be gambling with Westbrook. However the greatest challenge for Westbrook will be improving his passing game as it requires more mental training than physical. He can’t just go to a gym somewhere and improve his passing ability the same way that Derrick Rose did last summer when he went to Santa Monica and spent the whole summer improving his jump shot.
ESPN Insider says Tibor Pleiss not ready for OKC yet. Oklahoma City acquired the rights to Tibor Pleiss, the No. 31 pick in the 2010 NBA draft, and while the Thunder like him, they won’t try to bring him over until the 2012-13 season, at the earliest.
“Tibor, we like,” general manager Sam Presti said. “We’re in constant communication with him and following him. He’s progressing well. We cannot speed up his development. We’re excited for where he is. But we’ve got to let him be him. We’ll continue to watch him this summer.”
