NTTB Rumblings – 09 May 2018

Dr. Rajal Brar (The Injury Insight) gives an in-depth look at Andre Roberson’s injury and recovery: “Think about it like this:  You’re about to do an explosive dumbbell curl with a light weight (lets say 5 pounds) and as you’re about to intensely curl the arm up, an additional 50 pounds is added.  You’re making a forceful contraction against a weight that you weren’t ready for or expecting – that’s a recipe for overloading the muscle and tearing fibers.  That’s what happened to Roberson – in his case a complete rupture.”

Kyle Newport (Bleacher Report) on the idea around the league that the Thunder should trade Russell Westbrook: “There’s an increasing number of people around the league who think the Thunder should look at trading [Russell] Westbrook. To be clear, not a report. Not Thunder sources think they should do this. Just in spitballing ideas with teams around the league, there’s a number of people who have heard, just like, ‘It’s time for something to change here.'”Cody Taylor (Thunder Wire) with some of the players who have already worked out for the Thunder ahead of the draft: “Some teams do not publicly share information regarding pre-draft workouts, while other teams do share that information. The Thunder have been among the teams in the past that typically don’t share that sort of information so we may not know each prospect the team hosts for a workout.”

Dwight Howard on what he thinks went wrong with OKC’s Big 3:

Erik Horne and Brett Dawson (NewsOK) look at the different outcomes from any Paul George decision: “We’ll be prepared for everything,” Presti said last week. “At the end of the day, we’ll be prepared for all the different directions that could potentially go.” Presti isn’t talking about those options, but we can. Here’s some of what the Thunder might be weighing this summer based on George’s big decision.”

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Colin Cowherd (and guests) talking negatively about Westbrook.

Dakota Crawford (Indy Star) breaks down an interview Pacers’ GM Kevin Pritchard had with Dan Dakich, in which some Paul George free agency questions were asked (insert Nick Young bewilderment gif): “I would want to know first that he would fit us. We’re different now, Dan. One of the things we’re about, we don’t care about big names, we don’t care about big personalities we don’t care about big brands. What we care about is being humble …”
