FROM THE MIND OF NAZR MOHAMMED
Newly acquired Thunder center Nazr Mohammed says he's assimilating well in Oklahoma City. He's observed the Thunder Way in action, done some apartment shopping and suited up for his first game, though he's yet to play.
Now if someone could just help Mohammed, a 13-year pro out of Kentucky, catch up on his shows. Problems with his Slingbox TV streaming device created a backlog of his favorite shows, which according to Twitter posts to @nazrmohammed include The Event, Cape, Desperate Housewives, CSI Miami, CSI NY, Royal Pains and Smallville.
"I watch a lot of TV," Mohammed confessed Monday night, via Twitter.
A sampling of Mohammed's Twitter posts since arriving in OKC:
After Saturday's practice: "Great first day n OKC. 1st person I see working out this morning was @kdthunderup (Kevin Durant). That's a great sign!!! Looking forward to the experience."
On the eve of his first game in a Thunder uniform: "Funny feeling 2nite... feels like I'm on the road playing another team who's on the road. Almost like a neutral site. #GottaGetComfortable."
His put-me-in-coach post: "Tough loss vs Lakers. It was a fun physical game, we almost pulled it out. We had 2 great looks 2 tie it but missed. #CantWait2Play #Thunder."
First sign of boredom Monday night: "Damn I miss my DVR. I was so behind on my TV shows already. Don't know what I'm going to do to catch up."
Getting desperate? "Maybe I can get the #GeekSquad to go to my house in Charlotte and hook up my #SlingBox. I'm miserable without my shows. #TvWithdrawal."
OK, now he's officially desperate: "This hotel's Internet connection is so slow that my #SlingBox probably wouldn't work anyway. #TvWithdrawal."
Um, cancel that Geek Squad visit: "My followers are the best... The sites u (sic) gave me to watch my shows are great (even with my slow hotel internet connection lol)."
