Ford Drives Pacers Past Blunder

TJ Ford had 24 points and 10 assists to lead the Pacers past the Blunder in Indianapolis on Monday night, 107-99. Future ex-Blunder Kevin Durant netted 37 points on 13-27 shooting in 40 minutes, another long night for the pride of Texas. The former Longhorn led offensively-challenged OKC for the 7th time this season, carrying the entire burden alone. How much longer can he carry this work load? PJ will burn out his only star if he doesn't dial down Durant's minutes and the pressure to carry the load every night on his young shoulders.

Desmond Mason led the Blunder low-lights going 0-5 for two points in 29 minutes and contributed a technical foul in the third quarter as the Blunder watched a ten point lead turn into yet another OKCBlunder. It has to be painful for these players, but don't blame them, blame Bennett. He decimated the team to help enable his coveted move. He got his wish, but this is the price. These are merely pieces left over from what once was a basketball team. It's going to be a long season in OKC for these players. It'll be an even longer one for the fans that will be expected to watch and financially support Bennett's blunder, on display night after losing night. According to attendance figures, the Blunder are not selling out the Ford Center...and we're only seven games into the season. Ouch.

No word on if the Indy crowd enjoyed the Blunder's New York Knick tribute uniforms.

Next loss: Wednesday vs. Orlando.

I don't think the attendees of the Indiana game could comment on the Okies Uni's... since there weren't any in attendance!

I hear the Blunder are going to start letting the fans play in order to get attendance up. It's not like it's going to hurt their playoff chances.

The real shame is that Bennett has created such a bad situation for both the team and the hungry fans in OKC. This as the US settles into a recession and disposable income for non-priority items like NBA basketball will be lesser - especially for the worst team in the league. A team HE created. BLUNDER!

Durant is a dork.

Unimaginative, unfunny joke... Blunder!

For one of the worst sports owners of all time, Bennett is getting exactly what he deserves. The Blunder will never be winners under his ownership. Players don't want to play for him as his team is nothing but a joke right now. Oh well, that's what he gets for relocating the team by any means necessary. It did more harm for him than good, but you won't find anyone here in Seattle feeling sympathetic to his plights, both financially and reputation-wise.

Bennett is a fool. How long until the OKC fan base is tired of this recreational league team? Look for the grumbling to begin around the all star break with the team already out of the playoff picture and Durant tired from carrying the team. Maybe the others will step up their game and relieve the burden, but I think PJ rides his one strong horse...right into the ground.
