OKC Thunder: Kevin Durant thinks Denver's Ty Lawson should be an All-Star

Roberson, whose decision to leave CU a year early was criticized locally, was asked whether he felt he had proved the naysayers wrong.

“Not really,” Roberson said. “They just didn't really know what was going on in the whole process. They were just looking from the outside-in. They didn't really have the same information as me. So, it's understandable that some people were disappointed that I left, but I had to do what's best for me and my family.”

Jackson, who was recruited by CU but chose Boston College, said he was expecting “a couple dozen” family and friends in the stands on Tuesday night.


Nuggets coach Brian Shaw, reminiscing about his old college basketball showdowns with Thunder coach Scott Brooks: “He was at UC Irvine and I was at Santa Barbara. He was always a feisty competitor, could shoot the ball. Much like Nate Robinson, you look at him and say ‘He's a little guy, I'm going to have my way with him.' But he wasn't going to back down from you.”

Up next

The Thunder returns to OKC on Thursday, with a chance to extend its perfect 12-0 home mark against the Derrick Rose-less Bulls. Then it's right back on the road, with an intriguing Thunder-Spurs matchup set for Saturday night in San Antonio.
