Penn State is in the NIT finals. Never thought they'd be the basketball team to give me more enjoyment this season, they've really grown as a team over the season.

Katz is leaving the Thunder beat to cover the Celtics.

I might be sadder about this than I was about KD leaving.

We lose all the good ones.

Not that I don't like the rest of our beat guys, but Fred had a knack for the details that I'm really going to miss.

How much of this kind of stuff is a result of the thunder not giving any access or more opportunities of a bigger market?

I think access is a lot of it. It could also be that he knows the team is about to become completely irrelevant nationally and had a chance to go to a relevant team.

He's from NY. I think it's pretty obvious why he'd take the Boston gig, it's a better job in literally every way.

He came here when we had Durant. He is a NYC guy. This gets him closer to home, home more often also covering a team up in Boston that will be good for the next 10 years.

In the beginning of the season, his mom was pissed that the Thunder and Nets played in Mexico city rather than in the BK.

He is a very good reporter. He will be missed. Wonder if the Dream Team stays together...

Went to see Spoon last night at the Jones Assembly. Incredible show. If you get the chance to see them in person, DO IT.

I'm exhausted from moving, slept almost 12 hours last night, and will try to do it again tonight. But man what a difference it feels like living in a place that's really nice.

nothing brings people together better than food and sex. we should get some food chat going. what do you all eat for lunch? last six months i've been trying to eat lighter lunches and not pig out so much. there's a noodle bar near my work that has really good cold ramen. i'm told oklahoma has been getting a lot of great asian food lately.

Depends on the day. Couple of decent to excellent taquerias nearby, so I usually go for that.

OKC does actually have some pretty good Asian food, particularly Vietnamese. If you go to 23rd Street and throw a stone in any direction you're liable to hit a place where you can get some killer pho and banh mi.

There's a Persian place I'm going to be trying soon. We'll see how it goes.

persian food is almost like eating something from another planet, i love it. fensenjan stew is the best.

it's funny. there's no shortage of taquerias around here as you could imagine but i rarely eat at them...

I hate you all, the nicest and most exotic food place within 30 miles of me is a Mexican restaurant...
