My theory is he has a certain amount of unconscious contempt for this community. He goes out of his way to get white kids that have faces he thinks the fanbase will be more apt to warm up to (Steven, Domas, Poku, Giddey, Mitch, Cole) because he thinks we're a bunch of racist hicks.slick_watts wrote:spearsy23 wrote:I feel like every guy we draft is always excited to be here.

not sure if you're joking but it does seem like he might be selecting for traits which could insulate these players from temptations. giddey, maledon, dort, pokesevski... none of them are going to leave okc to play for their home team. even sga to some extent, he's not from the u.s. terrance ferguson had ties to oklahoma, so does josh giddey. darius bazley didn't attend college so no real player relationships developed for him prior to him joining okc.
maybe i'm wrong and this is nothing but even qualitatively, it appears he's selecting for a certain personality as well.
