Hey all you Kiwis (Thunder content)
« on: May 10, 2016, 09:42:15 PM »
 Our boys in OKC are looking good for the Western conference finals . Not there yet , but close . Stephen is beginning to play like a true NBA big man , ferocious on defense and on the glass , scoring when it is appropriate , and leading the team in badassery and jokes . Dang , what a funny guy  :bow: No porkie pies  :laugh:

 Did I say that  :embarrassed: Our boys are at full strength for the first time in a couple of years . Durant is healthy , Westbrook is healthy , Kanter and Ibaka are in a groove , and Stephen has become the enforcer in the paint . He believes every rebound is his , and the little guys have no business coming into the sacred painted area . Even the bench players are getting it done   :thumb:

 Now where is Injundave and Johnr ? Come on fellas , this could be the year , although the Warriors won't be easy .

 He is going feral , kinda scares the opponents , they seem to believe his Maori  brothers might pay them a visit  :laugh: Another NBA player made the mistake of attempting a Haka , let's just say it didn't end well  :shocked: Personally I think it really cool that a member of NZ's indigenous  culture is thriving in the NBA  :bow:

 Alright fellas , it is real serious now . 60-47 Warriors at halftime , considering how poorly our boys are shooting this isn't so bad .

 Now the boys are rolling 95 - 91 OKC about 4 minutes into the 4th quarter .

 last edit 108-102 Thunder . What a great comeback victory .

That stopped the Warriors winning streak! Another three more victories Dusty and the Glenmorangie comes out. :thumb:

Small interview with Steven Adams on our news tonight; a man of few words but so dead pan it was hilarious.

 This is shaping up to be a great series . Of course there is still the problem of Lebron and his guys .

But I can't understand a dang thing Steven says.

Sounded fine to me. :rolleyes:

I see on our internet news that he apologised for calling the smaller guys "quick little monkeys" in an after match interview. He blamed it on his idiom and different meanings in different parts of the world. I would have to agree with him there; our lingo and interpretations are a wee bit different at times.

 Durant said something like , "well yeah , they are"  :laugh: Steven meant no offense , and seems none was taken .

The game seems to be getting more coverage these days. This is probably due to it's increasing popularity here, but I suspect it is partly due to Steven Himself.

 It's always a thrill for us to see someone from here doing well out in the big world. Gives us a buzz.

I must admit Dusty, when you first mentioned him on this board, I had no idea who he was!

Then there is a young NZ girl of Asian heritage who seems to be able to swing a golf club to effect making the news here from time to time.
http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=11550042

There is also a young boxer who seems to be making a name for himself, Joseph Parker. I have to admit though, I don't fancy his chances against this Takum fella.

 Steven might not have even been famous in NZ before coming to the US . The NBA is truly international because basketball has become so . Of course Steven has that thing one can't coach .

Hey if you have the time for a 48 minute doco on Steven (made by the Thunder), I rather liked what I saw in this one.

 117 - 80 Thunder up end of 3rd quarter . So much for the game two Warriors blowout . Durant and Westbrook being their normal spectacular selves , Adams and Ibaka stalking the paint , Roberson playing well , as is Kanter  :bow: The OKC crowd is deafening , not sure the Warriors know what to think of that  :laugh:

Totally deliberate assault!  I would describe doing that to a 7' Maori as ... "unwise".

Were there any official  (or otherwise for that matter ) repercussions for the blue team number 23?
