It ain’t Pretty in Oklahoma City for the Thunder!

Worst loss of the season. The Oklahoma City Thunder should have won that game.
Damien Lillard was the hero with this three point game time shot to send the game into overtime.

Video Here:

You can see Serge Ibaka clearly frustrated by his late defense.
It shouldn’t of happened but it did and by the next play Serge and DaMarcus Aldridge get into an altercation and both get ejected.

final score 115-111 Blazers win

The most disappointing thing was seeing fans getting into a fight in the stands. Full on fistfight.

We knew the day would come when some fans would get batshit crazy and take things too seriously.
It’s a damn game, get a grip people. You have a lot to be thankful to be at an NBA game and seeing some of the best players in the world. Calm down and show some class.
The reality is the Thunder are not ALWAYS going to be good. They will have rough seasons. You can’t control it. You have no control. Let that sink in.
When Kevin Durant won his MVP even he admitted basketball is merely a platform and it’s not the most important thing. Fans yell at opposing teams. Then, after the game you see Kevin Durant or Russell Westbrook cutting up with them – giving them a hug Etc.
It would be nice if fans enjoyed what we have here. It’s pretty freaking amazing!
I’m fortunate to get to go with one of my friends who invites me to the games. I appreciate every single minute I get to see.

I hope the love affair that the NBA media has for the Oklahoma City thunder fans doesn’t turn against us.
With fans exiting early. Screaming obnoxious obscenities and acting like idiots.
Most fans are amazing it’s just the few that make it bad for everyone.
Thunder fans Lisa and Davis are in San Antonio for Oklahoma City thunder vs. San Antonio game tomorrow. They will be there like many other games cheering on the thunder.
I’ll be here watching with my son Who is a San Antonio Spurs fan!
Thunder up and keep it classy OKC!!

C’mon Russell!! Russell Westbrook and the armchair point guards.

What is wrong with people?

How many of the media and NBA fans have ever played on the NBA team as a starting point guard on one of the best teams in the league?

How many of those fans or media have The athletic ability of Westbrook?
What about the heart that gets left out on the floor every single game.

I’m pretty sure that’s nobody.

So explain to me why there are so many Russell Westbrook experts?
Experts that easily explain how they would do things differently. image

On every bad play or decision Russell Westbrook makes. Easily forgetting the MVP caliber game he had two nights ago.

Russell Westbrook plays angry, committed focused. He’s frustrating because maybe he’s frustrated.
He gets the team involved like a simple layup to Serge Ibaka that Serge was late for and blew the play. Russell takes matters into his own hands to get the job done sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t.
Unfortunately we have players like Jeremy Lamb Perry Jones Reggie Jackson Who are not consistent.

The definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result. Fans and media need to stop trying to put a square peg in around hole. Russell has been here for six years and he’s the same guy.
Stop trying to make Russell Westbrook Magic Johnson Steph Curry or Rajon Rondo. He is different and he will always be different and we will have to take the bad with the good. But luckily there is a whole lot of good.

•He is the most athletic point guard we have ever seen.
•if teammates are missing shots or not stepping up he’s going to take it upon himself.
•He is the alpha leader of the Oklahoma City Thunder
•He will go up for three rebounds in a row.
•He will be one of the only players consistently diving on the ground to get a ball.

And yeah
•He’s going to play hero ball sometimes
•He will take too many 3s. Occasionally.
•made bad shots.

One of my favorite Oklahoma City thunder fans stands up before “the first” Russell Westbrook free-throw
And screams his name you can hear it on TV and in the Arena.

She started doing it A few years ago because of all the bad talk and press Russell Westbrook it gets.
She stood up and showed her support when a lot of people questioned if he was the right guy for OKC.

Here she is last night.

From one fan, Russell keep being you and doing what you do.
You continue to improve and get better every year. You give more of yourself.
Keep on keepin on.

 

 

C’mon Russell!!!!!

“Bring the mashed potatoes” recipe

Every year on the holidays I get asked to bring my red garlic mashed potatoes.

Several years ago I came up with this recipe by taste to mimic mashed potatoes I had at a restaurant here in Oklahoma City.

Family and friends love this recipe. It’s one of the only things my grandma would eat before she passed away,

and recently my sons girlfriend wanted them after her knee surgery and the medicines made her stomach queasy.

Comfort food at its finest!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does.

•One large bag of washed red potatoes.
•Two garlic cloves
•One 8 ounce package of cream cheese
•One stick of butter or equivalent. My fav is “I can’t believe it’s not butter”
•Mccormicks original steak seasoning
•Sea salt
•1/2 cup -1 cup of half and half or milk.
•green onion **optional**

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/fc7/72825152/files/2014/12/img_7166.jpg
*my favorite butter, and seasonings.*

•Boil the potatoes and garlic until they are tender. (can easily poke through with a fork).
• drain
• add the potatoes and garlic to a large mixing bowl.
•add Cream cheese and butter and mix with electric mixer until melted. Add seasonings and half-and-half and mix again until smooth and fluffy.

*If you are adding chopped green onions tops add now.

Taste and add seasoning as needed.

Easy easy
Happy Holidays from Thunderstuff!

OKC Thunder roll over Lebron’s Cleveland Cavaliers

This was the first game of the season that the Oklahoma City Thunder looked like the Oklahoma City Thunder!
The Thunder needed the win but it was disappointing to not see LeBron James play in the Chesapeake arena. It was the only chance for the 2014 2015 season unless both teams reach the finals.
Notes:
•The infamous Joey Crawford was the head referee for the night.

Off-court:
•LeBron James was out due to a sore knee.
•LeBron James was not on the bench he was in the back locker room.
•LeBron James asked to meet with Kevin Durrant in the locker room after the game. Approved by Kendrick Perkins.

I am sure all the sports networks we’re having a hard time deciding what highlights to choose because there were so many amazing plays.
Oklahoma City thunder fans were up and down all night cheering on the team.

Russell Westbrook scored 26 points and Kevin Durant added 19, as the Oklahoma City Thunder held on late to earn a 103-94 victory over the LeBron-less Cavaliers.

Next stop the Minnesota Timberwolves
Thunder up!
