Thunder notebook: Positive opener

BY MIKE BALDWIN, Staff Writer, Published: October 9, 2009

All rookies learn tough lessons. It's even more of a challenge for rookie shooting guards such as James Harden. On any given night, you could be facing Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade or LeBron James.

“The best guys in the NBA are mostly shooting guards,” Harden said. “I have to be prepared every single night. I don't think you can prepare for them. You just go in, try to contain them and rely on your help defense. I just need to learn and compete as hard as possible.”


Forward Nick Collison, sidelined by a severely sprained ankle suffered before camp began, participated in light drills. He is doubtful for Saturday's game in New Orleans. ... Thabo Sefolosha (neck and back) didn't practice again Thursday and is listed day-to-day. ... Veteran backup point guard Kevin Ollie (quad) returned to practice.
