NWSB Insider and Portland Trailblazers blogger Blair Thomas weighs in with a very sensitive subject. The Sonics fans vs. Oklahoma City Thunder beef. Blair likens this to a bad breakup between a boyfriend and girlfriend, where the Thunder are the hot gf who goes on to make it big in life, and the Sonics fans are the bf who can’t seem to let go or get on with his life.

Death threats for OKC Thunder shirts are alright in my book

It's just sickening, isn't it

NWSB Insider and Seattle Supersonics blogger Clinton Bell tells us why the death threats for the Oklahoma City Thunder t-shirts are alright in his book. With the theft of the Sonics by Clay Bennett and company, the fans of Seattle should be outraged at this kind of mockery to their brand. Not only do they steal our team, but then they use our logo to snidely rip us after our former team is on the verge of a possible NBA Championship.

NWSB managing editor Q brings us his Love Em & Hate Em recap from Wednesday night’s game between the Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Portland Trail Blazers. J.J. Hickson was a great pickup by the Blazers and he is showing his value. Jamal Crawford has been disappointing of late. This is a guy who has carried teams in the past with scoring ability, but he is in a major slump.

Blazers vs Thunder

NWSB managing editor Q brings us his Love Em & Hate Em recap from Sunday night’s game between the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Oklahoma City. It’s hard to understand why, but the Blazers can’t seem to get out on three-point shooters this season. Like most of the guards on this team, Wesley Matthews has struggled most of the year. LaMarcus Aldridge struggled through this game.

Portland Trailblazers fan and NWSB Managing Editor “Q” weighs in with his Love’Em & Hate’Em column for the Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Trail Blazers game on Monday night. It’s tough to win a game when you get outrebounded 59 to 39. It’s even harder to win when the refs are horrible. LaMarcus Aldridge had 39 points. What more can you say about how brilliant he has been?
