It was a clinic of Dirk Nowitzki step-back jumpers — usually off one foot from the mid-range on Tuesday night in Dallas. The Mavs needed vintage Dirk if they were going to have any chance of surviving Kevin Durant‘s 43 points. But Rick Carlisle‘s team won it down the stretch and Nowitzki hit the dagger from deep with a minute left in OT to seal a 128-119 win. Read More »

Kevin Durant Abuses Darrell Arthur With Yo-Yo Crossover

The Thunder took down the Nuggets last night, 117-96, despite 2014 MVP (we’re giving it to him early, sorry), Kevin Durant, shooting just 1-for-7 from beyond the arc. Regardless of his struggles form deep, he was 9-of-14 everywhere else for 27 points, eight dimes and two steals. But it was his annihilation of Darrell Arthur that made our jaw drop as he crossed him up twice before driving for the and-1 bucket off the glass. Read More »

It happened midway through the third quarter, and while Oklahoma City’s collective breathe was being held after Russell Westbrook grabbed his surgically repaired right knee, Kevin Durant was in the midst of annihilating the Raptors in a double-OT epic. But after the adrenalin wore off, the Thunder still want to know what’s up with their star PG. Read More »

This is March Madness, NBA-style. The Raptors and Thunder played a doozy of a double-overtime thriller on Friday night, and the apogee of action crescendoed at the end in what should do even more to cement Kevin Durant‘s status as the 2014 MVP. After beating the Cavs with 35 last night, Durant was even better in Toronto, hanging 51 on a tough Raptors team including the game-winner in the second overtime session. Read More »

The Thunder beat the Cavs on Thursday night while most of the country was watching the bevy of NCAA Tournament games on opening night. They were without Russell Westbrook, and while the MAvs killed them sans Russ earlier in the week, the Thunder were able to withstand the Cavs thanks largely to this season’s ostensible leader in the MVP race, Kevin Durant. Watch his crazy alley-oop and a three from way, way back. Read More »

Russell Westbrook On His “Rust” & Derrick Rose’s Recovery

Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook is averaging 27 PPG over his last four outings, and his Thunder beat up on a tough Bulls team last night in Chicago for a 97-85 win. Russ, still not playing the back end of back-to-backs, came close to a triple-double with 17 points, nine assists and nine rebounds in 28 minutes. Before the game, however, a reporter had the temerity to ask Russ about rust. But Westbrook settled down enough to extol Derrick Rose in his second consecutive year of rehab. Read More »

Simulated One-On-One Battle Between Lil B & Kevin Durant In NBA 2K14

For the uninitiated, Lil B is (an Internet) rapper, no — not an emcee, who has been beefing with Kevin Durant since the latter questioned his relevancy in a tweet. For a world scratching their head at the #BasedGod’s popularity, it was a relief. But Lil B has continued to play up his beef with Durantula.* Now the people at Pitchfork have created a Lil B character on NBA 2K14 and had him square off in a simulated version of what Lil B has been itching to participate in for months now: a one-on-one battle with KD.

Durant Says Kobe Bryant & Michael Jordan Are “Neck And Neck As Far As Skill”

Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant (Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports)

The back-and-forth bar discussions about the greatest basketball player of all-time usually stop and start with Michael Jordan. Most rational basketball fans agree he’s the GOAT, but in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Daily News as part of their profile, Kevin Durant claimed that Kobe Bryant was the greatest ever and Mamba and MJ were “neck and neck as far as skill.” Read More »
