  • Oklahoma City Thunder: Lance Thomas' surprising perimeter skills a boost for Thunder defense

    By Anthony Slater | Published: Tue, Nov 25, 2014

    Lance Thomas entered Thunder training camp as an unknown and undersized big man. He worked with Steven Adams, Serge Ibaka and the other centers and power forwards during practice. He was listed as a power forward. He played most of his preseason minutes in the post area. Flash-forward a month later and Thomas — once a longshot to even make the team — is the Thunder’s starting small forward, working primarily as a perimeter player and wing stopper. It’s been a shocking transition, made possible by both a string of unfortunate injuries and Thomas’ surprising versatility and lateral quickness. “He can guard 1s, 2s, 3s and 4s,” coach Scott Brooks said. “And I’m shocked that I’m able to say that.

  • Oklahoma football: Junior-college receiver commits to Sooners

    BY JASON KERSEY AND RYAN ABER | Yesterday

    Oklahoma picked up its second commitment in the last three days when Blinn Community College (Brenham, Texas) wide receiver Dede Westbrook gave his verbal pledge to the Sooners on Tuesday. Westbrook, a four-star prospect, visited OU for its 44-7 rout of Kansas last weekend and announced his commitment on Twitter three days later. He’s the second OU wide receiver commit in the 2015 recruiting class, joining John Humphrey of League City, Texas. In Westbrook, Oklahoma will hope to bolster a receiver group that hasn’t been great this season.

  • If successful, Oklahoma tax cut challenge has major potential consequences

    The Oklahoman Editorial | Published: Tue, Nov 25, 2014

    A case before the Oklahoma Supreme Court will determine if a constitutional provision designed to hinder passage of tax increases also hinders passage of tax cuts. The wrong outcome could result in widespread tax increases. Lawmakers should be prepared to deal with an adverse court decision. State Question 640, approved by Oklahoma voters in 1992, amended the Oklahoma Constitution to require that revenue measures must either be sent to a vote of the people or get three-fourths approval in both houses of the Legislature. It also banned approval of such measures during the final five days of a legislative session. A lawsuit now argues that a revenue bill includes tax increases and tax cuts. That flies in the face of common
