With trade winds blowing, Thunder have some options

Which players should the Thunder storm?


Sports

Clark Matthews
Between now and Feb. 24, most discussion about the NBA will revolve around trade rumors. As that date gets closer, followers of the league will pontificate about which players are on the market. Some teams will throw in the towel for the season and shed high salaried players while other teams will seek to add one final piece that can help them.

Carb crush

Forget Wonder Bread. Break open fresh, warm artisan bread at these metro bakeries.


Food and Drink Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Seven days a week, Prairie Thunder Baking Company is working on bread. Never mind that the bakery and cafe is only open six; it takes time to create and bake the artisan breads for which Prairie Thunder, 1114 Classen Drive, is known.

Thoughts on ‘boombastic’ Thunder trades

A step or two in the right direction.


Sports

Patrick
Well, the NBA trade deadline has come and gone. And in case you were unaware, it was as crazy and unpredictable as a Sally Kern manifesto on homosexuals and terrorism.

Tips to avoid the anxiety of getting bumped

Because the nosebleeds are way up there.


Sports

Royce Young
It’s the sports fan’s mirage, the oasis in the desert: You’re upper level, looking down on the action and wondering, “What would this game look like from down there?”

Lockout could be apocalyptic event for Thunder

Impending work stoppage dangerous for fledgling OKC team


Sports

Clark Matthews
Things could not be going much better for the Thunder organization. It has two of the brightest stars in the league, just acquired the big man it has coveted for years, and is lauded as a potential dynasty. Most importantly, the market is absolutely in love with the franchise.

Is the ‘rip move’ a rip-off or a smart tactic?

Either way, Kevin Durant loves it


Sports

Royce Young
If you’re not familiar, which I can’t believe how you wouldn’t be, it’s the move where KD baits the defender to stick his hand close and then swings his arms up drawing a shooting foul.

MVM2, can you?

Ninjas, car wrecks and tattoos

The second edition of Music Video Monday is upon us!



Archie Powell & The Exports deliver a clip of ninjas, kidnapping and rock ’n’ roll amid a track equal parts The Hold Steady and Fountains of Wayne.



Manchester Orchestra’s entire life flashes before its eyes in this shiver-inducing clip. Consider me officially on the bandwagon for their new album.

Smith Westerns, whose “Dye It Blonde” I raved over here, gets a 10-minute mini-doc/music video called “Die with Your Chin Up.” The color palette particularly matches the band, which enhances the experience.



In honor of the Thunder’s victory over Birdman and the Forces of Garish Tattooage yesterday, here’s a clip sent over by Delo Creative (Flaming Lips, Broncho) that documents Thunder fandom way more intense than yours. And mine. It’s not music-related, but whoa. Just … whoa.

While you’re here, grab these free MP3s:
1.    “Cassette 2012” — Delay Trees. Finnish band keeps “Transatlanticism”-era Death Cab sound alive. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2.    “The Echoes” — Cassettes Won’t Listen. Bass-heavy club tomfoolery with indie aesthetics? Yr rave just got fey.
3.    “Creature of Nature” — Witches. Nineties-friendly guitar rock with maudlin overtones and great bass work.

Thunder shouldn’t take the Memphis Grizzlies lightly

With the series tied 1-1, OKC could be looking ahead too soon

They were gone. They were history. They were no longer part of the equation.

Thunder’s success ahead of schedule

The Thunder don’t seem to operate on the same clock of all the prognosticators


Sports

Royce Young
I can’t remember the exact game, but it was definitely December of 2008 and the Thunder were definitely something like 2-25. And I was definitely a little bummed out.
