This article is bullsh*t. The Thunder def. can’t win a championship without Durant. Warriors are jacked. Not a fair fight. Steph, Klay, Draymond and Durant?  R u kidding me? Game is rigged. (38 min ago)

DradleCock, it is rigged!  Just like life! What’s the point of being born if you’re going to die and lose everything you care about? (22 min ago)

 

DradleCock

Wishtong, I’m sorry for your situation. But I’m talking about you can’t have four All-Stars on one team and expect a fair fight. (21 min ago)

 

WishTong

Dradlecock, I saw a sign once that said, “Jesus is coming, look busy” and instead of making me chuckle it plunged me into despair. Why can’t I see the humor in this charade (or parade?) we call life?(19 min ago)

DradleCock, you and WishTong need to get a room together.  (18 min ago)

WishTong I’ve been through the dark night of the soul whatever (college, yawn), and it just wasn’t that big a deal. We’re all born, we die, I get it. If I’ve got thirty years left or thirty minutes, f*ck it, I’m gonna root for my team. Go Thunder! (17 min ago)

 

LennyF*ck89

Dradlecock, you da man. Go Thunder! (16 min ago)

 

WishTong

LennyF*ck89, I like your ‘tude!. I put my cat down recently, and it was was like I was the God and she was the human. I took her life just as God takes mine. Why does it all have to be so cruel? (15 min)

 

LennyF*ck89

Wishtong, Jesus f*cking Christmas! You need to get laid.  But yeah, It all adds up to nothin’, we f*ckin stare at the f*ckin TV, or fly planes or be movie stars, who the f*ck cares? You think Jesus cares if you’re Reese Motherf*ckin Witherspoon? (13 min ago)

 

WishTong

LennyF*ck89, I’m curious that you mention Jesus (and Reese Witherspoon). Are you a follower (of Jesus, I mean, not Reese Witherspoon ha ha)? I find Jesus to be very edgy in the Gospels, not neurotic-edgy, but more like a determined a*s-kicker. Like a guy who was never gonna be stopped, until he was done doing his thing. Then on the cross he said “It is accomplished” (“Tetelestai” in the Greek) and that was it. But he never got sidetracked is the thing. Go Thunder! (10 min ago)

 

DradleCock

He never got sidetracked with injuries, the way Durant’s gonna for the Warriors. I’m tellin’ ya, his ankles are like toothpicks, and Curry’s aren’t much better..I’m not conceding yet. (10 min ago)

 

LennyF*ck89

Damn straight. Get Delly to take out Durant in one quarter and Curry in the next and we’re on our way. Wishtong, you think you’re smart but cmon, grow a pair, we’re all in the same boat!! (8 min ago)

 

WishTong

LennyF*ck89, ha ha!. I appreciate that, despite your best efforts to be flip, you’re trying to guide me towards an acceptance of “the whole catastrophe” as Zorba the Greek put it. (7 min ago)

 

LennyF*ck89

Love ya bro but really just killing time because I can’t f*cking sleep. (6 min ago)

 

DradleCock

Thought this forum was about the Thunder, ladies? (5 min ago)

 

WishTong

Dradlecock, maybe Life is like being a Thunder fan. We wake up each day knowing victory will never be ours. We know the game is rigged. Our Saviour is forever inaccessible (Durant/Christ). We know we’ll either lose in the first round (Youth/Mavs) or the Conference Finals (old age/Dubs) but either way death is guaranteed. But we persevere! Why? The answer is the the sound of one hand clapping! (A Zen koan!)  (4 min ago)

 

DradleCock

WishTong, there’s gotta be other websites you can do this on.  (3 min ago)

 

LennyF*ck89

Good news is I’m starting to feel sleepy. (3 min ago)

 

WishTong

DradleCock and LennyF*ck89, thank you. I think I feel something shifting in me. Perhaps a turning towards life (and the Thunder) without fear or expecting answers (or championship rings). I stand on my own casket (bleacher seat) and say “Go Westbrook, go circle of life, go Steven Adams, go mortality, go Serge Ibaka, go Thunder! (2 min ago)

 

DradleCock

Dude, they traded Ibaka, too. (1 min ago)

 

WishTong

What? Oh, no, Dradlecock. We can’t win without Ibaka. There’s no way. Oh, God. Oh, KD. Why hast thou forsaken me? (“Eli, lama sabachthani?” in the Greek) (1 min ago)
