There are a number of people

There are a number of people around the NBA who will tell you that the Oklahoma City Thunder have not done enough this offseason to keep up with their competition for the 2012-13 NBA crown. The Miami HEAT added new depth with veterans like Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis, the Boston Celtics beefed up their backcourt with Courtney Lee and Jason Terry and the Los Angeles Lakers, of course, added two All-Stars in Steve Nash and Dwight Howard.

It doesn’t help that McGrady

It doesn’t help that McGrady has failed to become the strong veteran voice in the locker room even as his body has failed him. He led a player revolt against Detroit Pistons head coach John Kuester in 2010-11 and then was far from a positive influence in Atlanta last season.fsafesr2323

It wasn’t so long ago that

It wasn’t so long ago that O.J. Mayo was one of the hottest names in the rumor mill. The Indiana Pacers tried to get him several times, the Minnesota Timberwolves were among the other interested teams, and yet Mayo found himself looking for a home in free agency this summer. 221321211221

Houston’s then-coach Rick

Houston’s then-coach Rick Adelman saw nothing in Thabeet that made him want to play him, so he appeared in just two games for the rest of the season and didn’t score a basket. Rockets management hoped that incoming head coach Kevin McHale could reach Thabeet the following season, but even he could only coax 1.2 points and 1.4 rebounds out of the Tanzania product. 88568565

He appeared in just five

He appeared in just five games for Houston last season before the Rockets sent him to Portland, where the Blazers gave him more minutes and a real shot to be a rotation player, but were so disappointed in what they saw that they didn’t so much as make him an offer during free agency.2131221

Lastly, as a journalist, one

Lastly, as a journalist, one of the principal rules of the business is that we are not supposed to root for the teams or individuals we cover. The time-tested cliché informs us: “A respected scribe never cheers from the press box.” Well, unfortunately, I’m going to break that rule on occasion this season. So, do me a favor and let me slide if you see smile during a Rockets game at some point this winter.

“It is a process for a

“It is a process for a rookie,” Casey said. “He is not that far behind because the one thing he can do that makes up for a multitude of sins is he can shoot the ball at the end of the day and that’s part of the process too. The other part is you just can’t make a three and give up a three at the other end every possession. He is learning, believe me. This doesn’t mean Terrence Ross is not going to play for us or not a part of it. He is going to be big for us. He is our future, but right now he is just a typical rookie and you could stop every play for him [to teach]. He is learning.”
