07:21 AM ET 09.02 | This is different. [DeAndre Liggins] isn't the first player in Thunder history to be arrested. But his booking certainly is the most disturbing. And now it will serve as a case study. Put the Thunder to the test. For an organization that has always prided itself on being a pillar in the community and having a roster full of upstanding citizens, the team must now decide what to do. ... Later this month, he was expected to enter training camp fighting for the 15th and final roster spot. Already shaping up to be stiff following the draft night additions of Andre Roberson and Steven Adams, the competition for that final spot now includes free agent signee Ryan Gomes and the expected signing of combo guard Diante Garrett. Liggins, on this team, is practically expendable.

For playing 50 or so games in his career, this kid's getting a lot of T&R headlines.

We need more Odom, Howard and Favre threads...

Don't Let The Door Hit You On The Way Out, Bro.

Note to Liggins: When opportunity knocks, you can't be in the shower.

Things are adding up and the new car smell is leaving the Thunder. In about 5 more years we will see if the Thunder fans are for real or not. Up until recently it was easy to support their team. Now after losing Harden and Martin plus these other things. Reality is setting in.

Reality is a state of mind bro.

Give me a break. They have great fans. And if Westbrook didn't go down, it would have been them, not the Spurs, battling Miami for the title. There are a lot of teams that would like to trade problems with the Thunder.

Thunder couldn't even get passed the Grizzlies who got skunked by the Spurs in the WCF.

Westbrook is a fabulous player but would not have put the Thunder into the finals last season!

I am a Thunder fan and was when they had the worst record in the league...most of us were and still are and still will be. OKC Thunder fans are just as real as Miami, San Antonio or Magic fans are. Sorry for ranting but that ticked me off. I hope your Tuesday is a great one.
