Comments from the Other Side - OKC/Kings 1/25

It was so refreshing to go though the boards and not see anyone complaining that the refs were handing the game to OKC.  Kings fans seem like a decent bunch.  I'm sorry they may lose their team.   I've highlighted my favorites in bold.  What are yours? 

Westbrook is going to have his way with Isaiah. This is gonna be a blowout. OKC is way too good

Could this game be labeled as: Past Sonics Vs. Future Sonics?

I wonder if Oden really would have been better than Durant. Seems unlikely, huh? I suspect Oden went first because of his build as compared to Duranr. I mean really, how could such a skinny guy like Durant be very good on offense.

Lol I just choked laughing. The Thunder announcers said Keith Smart's strong point is that he has a plan and follows it. Oh god if only they knew..


I'm gonna have to get drunker than nocioni And higher than brad miller for this one

Comments from the Other Side - OKC/Clippers 1/22

I love all the complaints about KD getting super star treatment.  KD shot 3 free throws.  Griffin shot 10.  Do they watch the games or just make comments on what they think might happen?   Some fun comments tonight.  As always, I've highlighted my favorites in bold.  What are yours? 

Clippers will blow them out by 20 !!!

Beating the Thunder will more than make up for losing to GSW yesterday, as that catapults us back to #1.

I say rest cp3, he needs to take his time and get healthy. Bledsoe is more than capable of holding his own against westbrook, especially with the game being at home, bledsoe thrives off the home crowd

If the refs don't bail them out with 42 ft's for westbrook and durant, we win easy. Simple as that

The Thunder simply cannot match the Clippers' bench unless they maximize the 7'2" Hasheem Thabeet who's looked good this season in 11 mpg.

Vinny better tell the team not to breathe on or look at Durant... After all, that isn’t allowed. How many freebies will Durant get tonight: 30? 40?

Comments from the Other Side - OKC/Nuggets 1/20

My goodness!  I don't think I've ever heard people hate anyone as much as these Denver fans hate Russell Westbrook.   And when they weren't hating on Russ, or KD or their own players, they were hating on the refs.    I know it's a loss, but these comments are must read but pretty brutal.   Any favorites?    (as much as you can have favorite hate comments)

I want this game pretty badly

There's pretty much no way in hell they win this game Let alone make this a competitive…they can’t beat the Wizards how do they expect to beat the best team in the NBA?

Dude, when we win tonight, you'll be eating so much crow you'll need Pepto Crowsmol

Time to trade for D-Ho and Josh Smith Don’t want Smith, but if you get both it’s highly likely you can keep both in the off season as they are bff’s and no one can afford to sign both as FAs

I don't want to see another Iggy jumper again

Just trade the guy At this point it almost feels like hes here just to sabotage us

The lack of calls at home continue.

I'm shocked Especially with the likes of Westbrick and Durant out there

Comments from the Other Side - OKC/Mavs 1/18

Mavs fans complain a lot about the officials.  They also complain a lot about their own players.   In fact, I think they complained more about their own players than they did about the Thunder's players.   I'm always amazed when fans wish death or injury on someone.   That's just wrong.  I've highlighted a few of my favorites in bold.  What are yours? 

Refs decide to call collison for all actual fouls on dirk, collison fouls out in 6 defensive possessions.

I wonder, would the Thunder have been better if they kept Harden and let go of Westbrook?

Not even close. There's a legitimate argument that Westbrook is the 4th best player in the nba.(one I agree with btw)

Too bad we didn't catch them during Ibakas injury.

Given how good of a performance the Mavs showed against OKC last outing, I can see a win but I wouldn't put any money on it.

I don't think dirk is gonna have a good game. He moves his feet well, but its gonna be harder for him to take shots over Perkins or ibaka.

Comments from the Other Side - OKC/Nuggets 1/17

Once again, the Thunder were handed the the game by the refs even though the Nuggets shot 11 more free throws than the Thunder.   Were these fans even watching the game?  I've highlighted my favorite comments in bold.  What are yours?  Enjoy today's CFTOS. 

We're getting owned so hard tonight. This is probably the least winnable game left on our schedule :(

OKC is just a really good team and they Nugs just came off a potentially energy-zapping victory. We’ll see what happens.

Easy win

I hope they keep it close at least, if they win this game I don't know what Ill do, probably get drunk.

Perhaps the Nugs should just leave Gallo, Ty, Iggy and Dre at home then ...and risk getting sued by the Thunder fans.

Comments from the Other Side - OKC/Suns 1/14

It was refreshing to read through the boards and not see them blaming the refs for their loss.  This may be the first one all season.    It's always sad to see a fan base cheering for losses and lottery balls even before the All Star break.   Love how they started out trashing Russ's game and then complain about how he was killing them.  I've highlighted my favorites in bold.  What are yours? 

Back to the losing streak

Well...ya just never know...bet there aren't any of us that thought the Suns would beat the Bulls either.

Ibaka out. Dudley out.Both teams missing a starter – must make it even right?

Don't know why but I really do not like KD.

OKC is tired they got in at 5AM. We should have 20 wins with the amount of opponents we get on b2b's.

Westbrook takes some bad shots A 22 footer in Dragic’s face with 20 second son the clock? YOUCH!


And that’s while ignoring an open guy on the break.

Comments from the Other Side - OKC/Blazers 1/13

It was really funny that after admitting that the refs gave the Blazers all kinds of breaks in the first half,. they still complained about the calls the Thunder got.  I suppose the Thunder have to go the whole game without a free throw for some fans to be happy.   I've highlighted my favorites in bold.  What are yours? 

Normally I would expect a loss, but the Blazers seem to have some kind of magic in the Rose Garden right now. I guess they have to lose a home game eventually though.

Durant seems to not try too hard against Portland it seeems but expect westbrook to go off tonight against lillard


Sefolosha and Ibaka both out tonight. Interesting.

without ibaka, durant and westbrook will almost literally have to score 50 a piece to reach 100 today. no worries…we got this

There's actually a distinct possibility that they both do.

Comments from the Other Side - Lakers 1/11

It's getting pretty bad in Lakerland and I have to say I'm enjoying it. I don't care how much you don't like a team, it's classless to wish serious injury on their players. It was good to see a couple of Lakers fans calling them out on it. So much Westbrook hate - I guess that just means he's good  And of course, there are the ever present ref complaints.    I know you enjoyed the game, I hope you enjoy today's comments.

The turn around game.

People who got tickets to this game should get refunds.

Seeing Durant and Westbrook is worth it

Hopefully KD goes down with a knee injury at the beginning of the game and we steal the W.

Wishing injuries on other players is bad karma and more importantly, inhumane.

Does any Thunder fan feel pity for our injured players? Is Kevin Durant a Laker? Win at all costs.

I doubt any OKC fans would wish injury on any of our players

Well,mention them MWP and we'll see

Comments from the Other Side - OKC/Wolves 1/9

Wolves fans always seem like a decent bunch.  You have to feel for them with all the injuries they have had on their team this season.  I've highlighted my favorite comments in bold.  What are yours? 

This gonna be ugly tonight

This is a trap game for the Thunder. They're about to get Shved on

The Thunder coming off a loss to Washington, and they want revenge for us knocking them off. I smell a monster blowout.

If a team that has Jen Vesely playing 15 minutes a game for them can beat the Thunder. The Wolves can tonight.

Guard rotation of three players (!!!!!!) Means we cannot afford to be even remotely physical on Westbrook. Which means… well, best not to speculate.

Glad they're going with the black jerseys tonight

Mourning the death of this team's playoff chances?

Hey! Who said Luke doesn't play D? %

Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once and a while

But usually they just get eaten by a fox or hawk

Comments from the Other Side - Raptors 1/6

I have to say that in spite of their team being so bad for so long, Raptors fans are passionate about their team.   They had 5 different game threads that were all at least 40 pages long.  The Hawks, in spite of their team's success had barely one.  Of course many of their comments were complaining about their own team, but hey, at least they are there talking about them.  As always, I've highlighted my favorites in bold.  What are yours?  

The losing streak begins. Back to your place in the NBA Raps

Durant is going to be laughing on the court And if the Thunder watched any of last night's game Ibaka and Perkins are going to have a field day as well And this is all without even mentioning Westbrook

Comments from the Other Side - OKC/Sixers 1/4

The Sixers weren't a particularly chatty group. They spent most of the game threads complaining about their own team. They definitely liked the Thunder more than their own players. It's always a bit sad to see fans talking about their lottery pick before the All Star break. And for once, the complaints about the officiating were minimal.  I've highlighted my favorites in bold.  What are yours? 

The Sixers more than likely end up on the wrong side of the fence again... Just too many weapons... But it could be a turning point with a win...


LMAO... Now if we can only get a Perkins, KG, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce just maybe it would all be possible...

Shoot, if we can just get Perkins I'd do a back flip!!

I don't suppose the refs will like us very much in this game...

This will be a game that we come out hot and get up 13-15 points and lead wire to wire and then lose it in the last 5 minutes because we suck

Let’s foul out their whole team!

Kevin Durant's Top 10 Plays of 2012

As with Russell, it wasn't hard to pick a top 10 plays of the year for KD. He has at least one in every game. Just grab any 10 and you'd be safe.

Russell Westbrook's Top 10 Plays of 2012

Russell Westbrook - where amazing happens. He is so athletic. I actually like play #2 better than play #1. That one is incredible.

Comments from the Other Side - OKC/Nets 1/2

For a fan base that started out so sure they were getting blown out, they sure got cocky at the end.   They fail to see the irony of complaining that the Nets get no calls and then talking about being in the bonus early in the fourth.   I really dislike the Nets and their fans.  The Nets play thug ball and get away with way more from the refs than the Thunder ever did.   The refs letting the Nets get away with being very physical has led to 2 brawls in their games with the Celtics, and Rondo being ejected in one.    And their fans are fairly obnoxious when they are winning but many of them are bandwagon fans.  In spite of the loss, I hope you enjoy today's comments. 

Get ready for the pain and agony...

Wallace against Ibaka? #ThunderUp I guess

14 point loss. Westbrook will show no mercy against weak willed Deron.

Do we score more than 5 points in any quarter tonight?

The question is do we hold them to under 30 in any quarter.

Yes The 4th when they pull the starters

I wish Barclays was as crowded and loud as this arena

I just wish our team was as good. F the crowd

Comments from the Other Side - OKC/Suns 12/31

Suns fans seem like a nicer bunch than most.   Kind of feel sorry for them as their front office hasn't been the best at evaluating talent.  I wonder if they often think about the fact that they drafted Rajon Rondo and then gave him to Boston for "cash considerations."     I've highlighted my favorites in bold.  What are yours?  I want to wish all my Thunder friends a very Happy New Year.

Wow, home jerseys on the road look really weired. I have the feeling that this game could end really ugly.

Thunder are wearing their crappy blue Unis w/ the team name stripe down the side of the front. Really weird looking. Do not like.

I like them.

The Thunder's court and uniforms hurt my brain.

Kendrick Perkins scowling already. Oh, how I dislike him.

Why does everyone shoot threes so well against us??? Ibaka?!?! Cmon....

Tucker brings good energy in the court. I like it.. Brown is just catch and shoot guy

No brown is a catch and dribble out the shot clock then put up a terrible shot guy.
