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 »

GIF: Russell Westbrook Destroys Rim On Tomahawk Jam, Then…Raises The Roof?

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 To Jeremy Lamb: “Give Me The F******* Ball!”

Kevin Durant

Matthew Dellavedova is a dogged defender, but he’s no match for Kevin Durant. Apparently Jeremy Lamb thinks otherwise.

Brooks: Russell Westbrook “Plays At Another Level Than Any Other PG”

Russell Westbrook

We voted for Stephen Curry, Kyle Lowry, and John Wall on the rough draft of our All-Star ballot. It speaks to the incredible wealth of point guard talent overall and this season especially that we chose three for just four available backcourt spots, but what does even louder is that we were forced to leave off so many quality floor generals.

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 »

Kevin Durant, Kevin Love

Through three quarters during Thursday night’s Cavs-Thunder matchup on TNT, Kevin Durant was a quiet 3-of-9 from the field for 11 points. His minutes are restricted after coming back from a Jones fracture that kept him out of OKC’s first 17 games, and its affected his rhythm. But when the Cavs came storming back to cut the Thunder’s lead to four with two minutes remaining, the 2014 MVP scored eight points in the final two minutes, including a pair of impressive buckets.
