POTD 3/3/12: Josh Smith on Serge Ibaka

When he left the floor, I thought Josh was gonna dunk it with two hands.  When Ibaka came over and made contact, I didn’t think he’d be able to dunk it at all.  Then he did… with his left hand… and I lost my mind.  A dunk of the year candidate?  With what LeBron James and Blake Griffin did to John Lucas and Kendrick Perkins, no.  The next best thing?  Absolutely. ...

Sam Presti and Tony Parker

The Oklahoma City Thunder currently have the best record in the NBA at 29-7, but they’ve come a long way to get here. During the 2008-09 season, their first year in Oklahoma City after moving from Seattle, the Thunder went 23-59. Can you believe that was only three years ago? The man behind the scenes of the Thunder’s success is a man named Sam Presti, the team’s General...
