“The Thunder turnover number may be a little deceiving because they play fast, they take more shots and they have a couple of drivers/slashers. By wanting to push it that way, you're going to have more turnovers than a team that puts it in one guy's hand and they don't really advance the ball, using up 24 seconds on the clock.”
Some people have Kevin Durant ahead of LeBron James in the MVP race at the halfway point. How do you rate it?
“Those two guys have been simply sensational. You can't take anything away from LeBron and what he has done for Miami this year. Oklahoma City has a couple of more wins than Miami does right now, but you're probably going to have to go down to the end of the season and see, God forbid, if anybody is going to get injured, and at the end, you're probably going to wind up saying, ‘It's this guy vs. that guy.' But how can you pick them today? They've both played spectacular basketball.”
