10:37 AM ET 06.10 | In a Q&A interview, Oklahoma City Thabo Sefolosha said: "I'm under contract with the Thunder for two more years after this. I have not looked beyond that, actually. I'm just happy to be where I'm at today with this great organization, but at the same time it's a business, you know. I'll try to enjoy it as much as I can while I'm here and make the best out of it - for me and for the team."

why is there a thread about a guy that doesn't play in crunchtime?

And a guy who gives a pure vanilla response to a question.

The bulk of their team is locked in for the next two years... Some for three.


Bad news for the Western Conference...

Actually, Harden and Ibaka are only signed through next year then they will be RFA's

On the upside the dude is a good defender and more than adequate role player. Yet it seems that he intends to play somewhere else? ...He better work on his stats if it's about making more bucks.

Dude you need to mind your business. He has taken care of business so far in the playoffs. Who are you to tell him what his future should be?

Yay, Sef!

Dude you just simply need to practice reading comprehension and notice that this was an answer he gave in an interview to a question posed to him. "No comment" isn't an acceptable answer when you've AGREED to be interviewed.

Harden will be a restricted free-agent in 2013. Thunder will be hard-pressed to match offers for him, because he'll get plenty of offers from other teams looking to make him a first-choice scoring option.

June 11, 2012  02:30 AM ET

Some of you dorks are being silly about this.

All Sefo is saying is that when he becomes a free-agent -- EVENTUALLY-- he will test the waters for the best offer just like ANY player in the NBA.

This is not news. It's common sense. This was a routine question (probably something like "where do you see yourself in 5 years in the league?") posed to him in an interview and his answer is typical of 9 in 10 NBA players... particularly role-players like Sefo that no one ever considers to be franchise players.

And did I ask you for your ignorant input, you could have ignored my comment but you didn't. Looking for something buddy? You're not worth my time so move on and zip it.....lol!

And who the hell are you to tell me to mind my business buddy? I commented and if you buddy didn't like or agree with it, you could've simply ignored it and moved on and not comment buddy. But no, a I'm looking to argue with somebody type dude you are, you're going to tell somebody to mind their business. Take you own advice and keep it moving with your ignorant and moronic comments.......buddy!....lol.

June 11, 2012  07:46 AM ET

My guess is that ninotores, 118 comments, and dmane, all of 16 comments, are either alters or guys who've been kicked off the site for doing just what you're doing now, which is looking to argue and insult. Anyone can tell a new person don't usually just come on the site looking to start something. Are we to believe that you two are the exceptions......no I don't think so, and I'm moving on, and so should you.........go find someone else alter! lol.

June 11, 2012  09:04 AM ET

I like when people bring out the "he only has so many posts he has to be a ****" argument. That's quality stuff. What ninotores said was absolutely correct. He was in an interview and so he had to answer. In my opinion, his answer was a good one. What I got out of the answer is his knowledge that the team has a lot of money locked up in other players and they may not be able to keep him with the team. "I'm just happy to be where I'm at today with this great organization," How can anyone be angry with him after having said that?
