What they're saying: OKC players on Scott Brooks

Oklahoman Published: April 15, 2009
"His philosophies really fit this team. I think his philosophies are on par with teams that have won championships over time. It’s just a building process and it takes time to jell and get that cohesiveness.”

Desmond Mason.

"I think if he has a full training camp with us and a preseason he could do some good things. Hopefully we give him a chance and he’s the coach here for the future.”

Kevin Durant.

"Coaching’s like anything else, you get better at it over time, so I think he’ll do nothing but get better with experience. But I think he’s done a really good job and if they bring him back, I’ll see that as a positive for our team.”

Nick Collison.

"He should have already been announced the head coach.”

Robert Swift.

"He’s been pushing us hard to get better and we’ve been getting better. You see a lot of growth in a lot of players.”

Jeff Green.

"I think he deserves it. He came in and did an exceptional job of getting the most that he can get out of our younger guys and they’ve responded well since he’s taken over the job.”

Damien Wilkins.

"I don’t know what he did before I was here. But I can say that he’s preaching a lot of things that I heard all throughout my career — caring about your teammates, being defensive-minded, competing and having fire. All those things I heard when I was in San Antonio he’s preaching to the guys here.”

Malik Rose.
