Maynor was unsung hero of Westbrook controversy

Let's focus on the positive, shall we?


Sports

Clark Matthews
Winning Game 2 of the Western Conference finals May 19 on the road should have been a feel good story for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Instead, most of the discussion afterward was focused on a single negative aspect.

Thunder will learn from playing deep into playoffs

The difference between winning and losing was finishing

Sometimes, it just doesn’t even seem fair. Or meant to be. Or both.

Watch Arcade Fire's Win Butler crossover dribble

Thunder forward Nick Collison, Butler, others play charity ball in Canada.

So what did we learn from watching this video of Arcade Fire ringleader Win Butler participating in a Toronto charity basketball tournament with a handful of actual (white) NBA players, musicians and others?

1. He's better at shooting threes than Matt Bonner.

2. While kinda lanky and awkward, he's got better-than-average ball-handling skills and left-hand finish ability, so long as Matt Bonner is not patiently waiting in the paint to swat the eff out of it.

3. Dude hustles.

4. Dude passes OK from the low post.

5. Dude talks decent white-boy smack, at best.

Also, OKC Thunder workhorse Nick Collison deserves a shoutout for his awesome deadpan humor here (which comes at no surprise to anyone who follows him on Twitter). When asked why he should be the top overall draft pick in the charity tournament, he dropped some real talk: "I'm one of the only professional athletes here." Watch below.

Grievous in seattle

Talk about beating a dead horse. It’s been four years since the NBA’s SuperSonics left Seattle and became the Oklahoma City Thunder, but a vocal segment of that team’s faithful continues to bellyache.

Thunder has transformed city’s image


Commentary

Mick Cornett
I was watching ESPN the other night and saw Skip Bayless, Tim Legler and Stephen A. Smith spend 20 minutes talking about the Oklahoma City Thunder. A few days earlier, I’d seen the ESPN First Take team analyzing Russell Westbrook’s game.

With basketball returning to the Chesapeake Energy Arena tomorrow, remember that there have been some changes since the last time the Oklahoma City Thunder played took the court at home.

Still a sportscaster


Letters to the Editor

Jim Henry
Mick Cornett’s commentary of May 16 (“Thunder has transformed city’s image,” Oklahoma Gazette) proved that I was right when Oklahoma City chose Mick Cornett over Jim Tolbert: If you elect a sportscaster as mayor, you get a sportscaster as mayor.

As a Chicago Cubs fan living in Oklahoma, Brent Lightsey sought information on the team from whatever sources he could, including a podcast assembled by fellow fans of Major League Baseball’s lovable losers.
