Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant

Kobe Bryant’s contract expires at the end of the 2015-2016 season. And while there’s been no indication that the 36 year-old will play beyond his current deal, there has yet to be confirmation that he’ll hang up his Nikes for good then, either. You know what might make Mamba more inclined to play further into his late thirties? If the Los Angeles Lakers had the chance to compete for a championship. Read More »

Steve Kerr Quips About Durant: “We Did A good Job On Him In The Second Half”

Steve Kerr

By now everyone knows that Kevin Durant went off last night to the tune of 30 points in 18 minutes, which hasn’t been done since the American Basketball Association was being folded into the NBA. But an ankle injury right before the half saved the Warriors the uneviable task of stopping him in the next half, which coach Steve Kerr joked about after the game when it became clear KD was all right.

Before the Oklahoma City Thunder battled the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night, reigning MVP Kevin Durant sat down with USA Today to praise former Team USA teammate Kobe Bryant’s work ethic and dedication to his craft after Mamba passed Michael Jordan for third on the all-time scoring list.

Kevin Durant On Players Not Wanting To Play With Kobe: “That’s [Expletive]”

Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant

After Kobe Bryant passed Michael Jordan on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, Kevin Durant sent him a congratulatory text. The 2014 NBA MVP recently spoke with USA Today‘s Sam Amick and extolled the Lakers great for his work ethic and commitment to the game. When asked if the ideas in Henry Abbott’s infamous ESPN feature — that reported players didn’t want to play in LA because of Kobe — were true, Durant couldn’t hold back about the “BS.” Read More »

Russell Westbrook

If we had to make a list of the most entertaining NBA players to watch right now, Russell Westbrook would be at, or near, the top. The Thunder point guard is also playing out of his mind since returning from a hand injury that kept him out of 15 games earlier this season. Against Sacramento last night, Russ continued to abuse OKC opponents, and even brought back a celebration that was at its peak way back in the 1990s. Read More »

Kevin Durant Says It “Would’ve Been Cool” To Go Against LeBron

Kevin Durant, Kevin Love

The public didn’t get to see a LeBron JamesKevin Durant head-to-head battle last night, which we’re guessing TNT was planning when they put the Cavs-Thunder game on their schedule. Instead, with James resting his knee, it became a Kyrie Irving and Russell Westbrook show before KD took over down the stretch. But James did get a chance to visit with his friend and offseason workout partner after the game, he just had to wait before getting clearance. Read More »
