TALKIN' PLAYOFFS?

There were mixed reactions at the Thunder's media day when asked if shooting for the playoffs is a realistic goal. Coach Scott Brooks and several players said the primary focus is to improve every day instead of focusing on the standings.

"I haven't used (playoffs) much in my vocabulary," said Jeff Green. "I'm thinking we still have to get better. That jump in the West Coast is going to be tough, where it's tough just to get the eight spot. We have one of the toughest opening schedules in the NBA this year. We've just got to take it a game at a time."

Shaun Livingston said: "(The playoffs) are a possibility. It starts with believing. The team I was with (the Clippers), none of us had been there before but we made the playoffs. It's all in your mindset. You have to believe we can go beat teams, win games and do it."

STAR STATUS

During a trip to Los Angeles to meet with Russell Westbrook, Brooks was waiting to be seated at Seven, an exclusive restaurant. Brooks was told there would be a 20-minute wait. As soon as Westbrook arrived they were seated immediately.

"The story gets better," Brooks said. "As we're sitting down I see Cindy Crawford there with her family. They made her wait 15 minutes for a table."

COMING HOME

Veteran forward Etan Thomas was at his mother's home in Tulsa for a barbecue when his agent informed him he had been traded to the Thunder . The Tulsa Washington product said it will be special to play in the state in which he grew up.

A poet, who writes on all subjects including politics, said he wrote a poem on former OU and NBA legend Wayman Tisdale after he died earlier this year.

"My family is really close with his family," Thomas said. "I grew up admiring him, watching how he expanded outside of Basketball, his Jazz. He was serious about it. He was a great Jazz musician. He was just a great guy, somebody always trying to do the right things.

"I still have a picture of him when he visited our middle school. I mean, it was Wayman Tisdale!"

RAZOR RESISTANCE

Rookie guard James Harden has been confused for forward D.J. White because they both have beards.

"When I'm going through a store I'll get, "Hey, D.J., good luck this season,' a few times," Harden said. "I told D.J. he has to cut his beard. I've had mine longer than his. He told me I'm a rookie so I have to cut mine. I told him, 'No, can't do it.' "

Green said: "I even (get confused). I made it clear one of them needs to lose the beard. You can't tell them apart. But neither wants to give it up. I guess I'll just keep mixing them up, making them mad."

PICNIC PARTY

Several players, their families and friends attended a party Sunday at a ranch in Arcadia. One of the highlights was riding dirt bikes.

"This is a perfect fit for me," Harden said. "We all enjoy the same things. We rode bikes for like four hours. (To avoid a major injury) they didn't let us ride the faster ones... It was a lot of fun. It's going to be great playing with these guys."

Green quipped: "I was not on a four-wheeler (Sunday). I was eating and drinking water... I actually started off on a fast one. Everybody just had fun. It was a great chance for us to bond."

CAMP LOGO

The Thunder is one of few NBA teams that have devised a training camp logo. The words training camp, in all capital letters, are centered below the team logo above 2009.

INJURY UPDATE

Livingston said he'll always feel he's 95 percent recovered from a major knee injury he suffered two years ago but is encouraged that he's closer to resembling his old self after a strenuous summer conditioning program... Kyle Weaver said working out this summer with a cast on his left thumb helped him improve his overall game because it forced him to concentrate more on simple things like catching the ball.
