Mo Speights On Scoring 28 Points VS Thunder: “Shout Out To [Kendrick] Perkins”

Marreese Speights

Reserve big man Marreese Speights played his best game of an excellent season in the Golden State Warriors’ 88-84 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder last night, scoring a team-high 28 points (11-18 FGs) in only 25 minutes of play. After the contest, Speights credited Oklahoma City’s mean-mugging, trash-talking backup Kendrick Perkins as inspiration for his ultra-aggressive, even contentious performance: “Shout out to Perkins for helping me get this game.” Read More »

Video: Reggie Jackson’s Thunderous And-1 Jam

Andre Iguodala, Stephen Curry

Coming into Sunday’s matchup between the short-handed Oklahoma City Thunder and the visiting Golden State Warriors, most thought the game would be a cakewalk for the Warriors. However, a back-and-forth battled ensued at Chesapeake Energy Arena on Sunday, as the Warriors shot a season-low 35.5 percent from the field and OKC, led by Reggie Jackson, gave the offensive-juggernaut a fight for all 48 minutes.

Watch Trey Burke Put Reggie Jackson On Skates

Trey Burke, Reggie Jackson

The Jazz have been really fun to watch, and the Thunder really need Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook back — though yesterday’s extemporaneous pre-game workout is a good sign on that front. Meanwhile, the Jazz’s second-year point guard, Trey Burke, made sometime six man Reggie Jackson do the splits on this sick crossover last night. Read More »

Watch Kevin Durant & Russell Westbrook Working Out In Utah

After a Jones fracture knocked out Kevin Durant for 6-8 weeks, everybody expected Russell Westbrook to take over the offense — more so than usual — in the season’s first month. Except, Russ suffered a small fracture in his right hand and has also been out since the Thunder dropped their second game of the season to the Clippers on Halloween night. But now both are up and shooting around. Read More »

James Harden Says Reggie Jackson “Has To Get The Money That He’s Earned”

Reggie Jackson

If there’s any player that knows how stringent the Oklahoma City Thunder can be in contract negotiations, it’s definitely James Harden. The Houston Rockets superstar and reigning All-NBA First Team honoree was low-balled by the Thunder after winning Sixth Man of the Year in 2011-2012, and subsequently dealt to Houston after it became apparent that the sides would be unable to reach an extension by the deadline that would have made him a restricted free agent the following summer. Just two years later, Oklahoma City finds itself in a somewhat similar situation with super-sub Reggie Jackson. And though GM Sam Presti elected against trading the talented guard even though no extension was reached, that hardly ensures Jackson’s long-term place with the Thunder. Read More »

Russell Westbrook Denies Recruiting Efforts Of Lakers Fan: “Go Back To LA”

Russell Westbrook

If only a Washington Wizards follower would test Kevin Durant the same way. During his team’s home game against the Houston Rockets last night, injured Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Russell Westbrook staunchly denied the recruiting efforts of a Los Angeles Lakers fan sitting a few rows from the court.

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 »

Watch the mean-mugging big man take rare flight against the Milwaukee Bucks for a powerful, pretty common dunk that got his team’s bench comically excited. Read More »

Serge Ibaka & Kendrick Perkins Freeze Out Reggie Jackson After Selfish Play

Deron Williams, Reggie Jackson

Like Kawhi Leonard with the Spurs and Greg Monroe with the Pistons, Oklahoma City Thunder backup point guard and sometime off-guard Reggie Jackson didn’t agree to an extension before the Oct. 31 deadline, making him a restricted free agent July 1, 2015. Recent comments from Jackson combined with his self-serving play, though, led Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka to perform some in-house team policing during Monday night’s loss 31-point loss to the Nets.
