Thunder coach Carlesimo loves OKC's 'geography'

By Darnell Mayberry Published: October 2, 2008
Thunder coach P.J. Carlesimo called Oklahoma City "infinitely better” than Seattle — from a geographical standpoint that is.

"Geography is infinitely better for us because the travel is infinitely better,” Carlesimo said. "We’re just so much better situated geographically.

"The worst travel in the league was Seattle and Portland and is Miami and Orlando just because of where they are. So to be here compared to Seattle, the geography’s infinitely better even if we’re (in) the Northwest Division.”

In addition to the Thunder, Portland, Denver, Minnesota and Utah make up the Northwest Division.
