    One GIF to Sum Up the Thunder-Spurs Series Thus Far

    We could sum up the NBA’s Western Conference Finals series between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs in two ways. The easy way would be to point out that the Spurs have outscored the Thunder 234-182, out-rebounded them 93-75, and OKC has turned the ball over nine more times while dishing out […]

    Kevin Durant Earns NBA MVP Award, Gives an Amazing Acceptance Speech (Video)

    Earlier today, Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant was honored with the NBA’s MVP award. And in case his statistics didn’t state his case on why he deserved the award, maybe his incredibly humble and moving acceptance speech will help sell you. Despite having led the league in scoring four times (and only being 25-years-old), this was […]

    ‘Oklahoman’ Newspaper Apologizes for Kevin Durant “Mr. Unreliable” Headline

    Kevin Durant disappointed many with his 40 percent shooting in the first five games of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s playoff series against the Memphis Grizzlies—including, apparently, hometown paper The Oklahoman, which dubbed Durant “Mr. Unreliable” in a big, bold headline earlier today.

    The Oklahoma City Thunder received a scare from the Los Angeles Lakers last night in their final game before the NBA All-Star Break.  But in the end, Kevin Durant was there to make sure that’s all it was: a scare. For the second time in his past three games and the seventh time in the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/9/2014 — Kevin Durant

    At this point in the NBA season, it may take a miracle for someone to steal MVP honors from Kevin Durant.

    Kevin Durant has always gone by the nickname “KD” throughout his NBA career, but with his recent reign of terror over opposing defenses (nine games in a row with at least 30 points), some started thinking that perhaps it’s time to give the Thunder forward a new nickname that he doesn’t have to share with […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/21/2014 — Kevin Durant

    With Russell Westbrook out of the line-up, Kevin Durant has been forced to pick up much of the slack on offense.  The result was seven straight games with at least 30 points heading into last night, and he would keep that streak going at the expense of the Portland Trail Blazers. Durant was feeling it […]
