    NBA Fans, let's talk basketball......to start with I am a huge OKC Thunder fan, but love to talk NBA!

    The questions as I see it for this season: (1) Who will step forward in the East now that Lebron has left Cleveland? (2) Can anyone beat the Warriors in the West? (3) What is wrong with the Rockets?[CP3 and Harden not getting along?]…...COME ON IN and let's talk!!! @BobaFettNY21

    Here are current standings as of Nov 11th

    I'm a fan of the most well-run, non-dysfunctional organisation in all the basketball land — the Minnesota Timberwolves.

    We just traded Jimmy "General Soreness" Butler to the Sixers, so our season has just begun now really.

    Hopefully the new guys, Saric and Covington, can find a way to build some chemistry with the rest of the team.

    The Warriors can count themselves lucky we gave them a 13-game head-start!

    @Fuzzball Yep that was a great move getting rid of Butler....never been a fan of his.

    I used to think the Thunder was also well-run until they brought in the basketball version of a collapsing star, Carmelo Anthony (the ball goes in to him and does NOT come out)…..anyway, interesting to note the recent news is that the Carmelo experiment in Houston may be ending soon.

    Seems as if the Thunder have a good thing going with the youngsters, now if Russell's ankle can heal fully we should be set up well.

    A lot of Wolves fans (myself included) are really annoyed with the way Butler and Thibs have handled it all. Butler should've been gone months ago, but Thibs stubbornly thought he could still make it work with him (to the detriment of the rest of the team). Neither of them are well-liked, and I wouldn't be surprised if Thibs gets fired soon.

    That experiment hasn't worked in the slightest. Melo is easily having his worst season as a pro. Will be interesting to see who picks him up if he hits free agency.

    The Thunder are always exciting to watch with Westbrook playing, but Steven Adams is my favourite player on your team.

    [PS: The Thunder are easily a more well-run club than the Wolves:D]

    My yearly input in the NBA...

    That's all the energy I will give to the league until that wrong is made right, except when the Thunder are eliminated from winning a Championship. Then we give a brief cheer and move on.

    Sorry you feel that way.....I wasn't around the OKC area when the franchise was moved here, so don't know much about it. All I know is I am a huge fan of the current Thunder team, 12 years removed from the Seattle move.

    Nice game by the Thunder tonight, shooting improving with a nice 47% FG, 48% 3 Pt and 95% FT game.....118-101 over the Suns.

    Wow!! The Western Conference is getting interesting - the Warriors just lost their 5th game of the season and 4 of the last 6. They are looking pedestrian right now with Curry out. And the dynamic between Durant and Green is not good right now.....if the Thunder can hold on against the Suns tonight they will be 1 game out of the best record in the west!!!! After an 0-4 start
