Sekou and Hayes both looked great. They are 19 and 20 years old. Writing them off now will look bad in a few years. Both have enormous potential.

I thought he actually looked really good on defense. Maybe I'm tripping.

His conditioning isnt there yet, so he got a few times but his hands were very active! Kid can wreak havoc with how quick his hands are.

4 steals, 2 blocks.... deceiving numbers? I can’t watch the games.

Maybe you can cool it with your snarky replies which you've done multiple times with me. That'll be a start.

Also, I didn't say anything about beating playoff teams. Again, I said that 9-16 in their final 25 wasn't unrealistic then you proceeded with the snarky replies to me for some odd reason.

Anyway, it was nice to see Hayes have a decent game. Something to build on.

We can agree on Killian.

No he was definitely active on that end! Could tell his conditioning was what lead to him getting beat a few times tonight. Was easily his best game all around! You can see the potential as a two way player..

But Hayes has looked bad against every team we've played. G league competition NBA backups and NBA starters. Ill give him credit, this is the best ive seen him play regardless of who he was playing against.

He needs time. He'll do best with players around him that attack and run. Attack and Run.

The top 6 minutes guys for the Thunder did not play yesterday.

#7 on the team is Svi, who has been there for a couple weeks? #8 played one game so far.

Man I wish the Pistons could play EVERY game against 9th men and below, plus 2 g-leaguers that were brought up right before that game - as mentioned.

Losing by 50 against the Knicks - who are an 8th seed :lol: :lol: :lol:. Homers are pounding their chests when the Pistons beat a SUPER tanking Thunder, which is what the Pistons should actually be doing.

Hey, maybe the Thunder's management are really stupid and don't know what they are doing? You think thats the case? :banghead:

He played 7 games right out of the gate, got hurt, and has now played one game since coming back. Not exactly a whopping sample size.

One thing i like about weaver is that he is targeting uber athletic guys. This team is at least playing hard, and dead weight is gone.

It may be a few years, but at least you can see what his plan is. Previous GMs had zero plan, and it was obvious.

Obviously, this wasn't great competition, but but it was nice to see Hayes out there making plays . That was night and day vs his early performances. The guy really needs to tighten up that handle in the offseason though. Some of those plays he's making in space are just going to be turnovers against a physical defense. He's clearly got court vision though, so hopefully he adapts quickly. The other young guys could really benefit from someone who could consistently get them open looks.

Dude the way some posters hate anything positive we do is just annoying bro. I swear I don't even want these people around when the youngsters are old enough to drink.

Cool and we start a rookie PG with a rookie backup. Two player nobody thinks highly of at the 2. A rookie SF, Grant and a rookie starting C. Oh wait don't forget about Sekou and Cook.

At least OKC still had SVI who the haters didn't want traded, future MVP Poku and the better frenchmen by some in Maledon.

They are soul suckers. They complain about the bad, complain about the good, make fun of people who are excited about the team/players. They are not fans of the game or team, they are fans of making real fans life miserable.

I don't understand it, but it is what it is.
