Dime Q&A: Steven Adams On Guarding Big Al & Z-Bo, Life Without KD & Russ, And More

Steven Adams

When the Thunder traded James Harden to the Rockets, it seemed like the team got absolutely nothing in return. Kevin Martin wasn’t able to replace Harden’s production and Jeremy Lamb never developed into the dangerous offensive weapon the Thunder had hoped he would.

But the Thunder also received the No. 12 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft as part of the deal, which they used to select Pittsburgh’s Steven Adams. It’s a pick that makes Oklahoma City feel as if they’ve salvaged a valuable piece for their team after the infamous trade with Houston. Read More »

Kevin Durant Repeatedly Tells Dwight Howard, “You’re A Pu**y”

Dwight Howard, Kevin Durant

Last night’s Thunder-Rockets game was ugly. Houston scored 24 points in the first quarter, and it was the only time either time exceeded 20 points in a quarter; Houston then scored only nine in the third session. The Rockets did, however, get the win when James Harden hit a huge step-back three-pointer with 1:19 remaining to give them a 68-65 advantage they never relinquished. The ugliness of the game mirrored the junk Kevin Durant was slinging towards Dwight Howard from the sidelines. Read More »
