    Kevin Durant Pushes Evan Turner, Argues With Kenny Rogers Look-A-Like (Video)

    It appears as though no one can stop Kevin Durant these days.  Not the Eastern Conference All-Stars.  Not the Philadelphia 76ers’ Evan Turner.  And certainly not that Kenny Rogers look-a-like that was seated courtside at the Wells Fargo Center during yesterday’s game between the Thunder and the 76ers. Durant would receive a technical foul as […]

    Kevin Love Suspended Two Games For Stomping On Luis Scola’s Head (Video)

    Being a hard-nosed player has always been a characteristic of Kevin Love’s game.  Being a dirty player hasn’t. That may all change following an incident during Saturday night’s game against the Houston Rockets, as the Timberwolves’ power forward, who usually does his damage above the rim, was inflicting some damage on the Rockets’ Luis Scola […]
