Training camp roster set

This has been the lead story on pretty much every news channel here in the state and on every sports talk radio station all day. The Thunder has set its training camp roster. I don’t know why this is such big news, because it’s not like we didn’t know who was going to be on it. Oh well, when a state’s as bananas as Oklahoma is about the Thunder, the


could put out a story about P.J. Carlesimo shaving that dirty beard and we’d eat it up.

Here’s who made it:

  • Nick Collison (Forward, Kansas)
  • Kevin Durant (Forward, Texas)
  • Jeff Green (Forward, Georgetown)
  • Johan Petro (Center,France)
  • Desmond Mason (Forward, Oklahoma State)
  • Mohamed Sene (Center, Senegal)
  • Joe Smith (Forward. Maryland)
  • Robert Swift (Center, Bakersfield (Calif.) HS)
  • Earl Watson (Guard, UCLA)
  • Kyle Weaver (Guard, Washington State)
  • Russell Westbrook (Guard, UCLA)
  • D.J. White (Forward, Indiana)
  • Chris Wilcox (Forward, Maryland)
  • Damien Wilkins (Guard, Georgia)

The only surprise that would come out of training camp is if Joe Smith makes it out with both knees intact. Practice kicks off at SNU next Monday and supposedly the Thunder’s new threads will be unveiled then as well.
