Thunder notes: Rusty practice

Oklahoman Published: October 17, 2008

m style="b">Earl Watson, Damien Wilkins, Kevin Durant and John Lucas III all missed before Desmond Mason drained two free throws to prevent the team from running a fifth set of wind sprints.

"It probably would have been better today if we made the (first two) free throws and didn’t run that much,” Carlesimo said. "It became a little more than we wanted.”

Wilkins said: "I didn’t mind running them. We need them after not practicing. They felt good, but I can’t speak for everybody.”

Boys & Girls club visit
Thunder players Wilkins, Lucas and Weaver, and TV broadcasters Brian Davis and Grant Long, Thursday afternoon visited the Boys & Girls Club in Memorial Park. The Boys & Girls club has been a part of Wilkins’ foundation in Atlanta and his hometown in North Carolina.

"Growing up, I was the first member of my Boys and Girls when it first opened,” Wilkins said. "It’s always been something very important to me. In the summer time I always go back to give something back.”
