Call it schadenfreude because we’ve also been stuck on the receiving end of tired refrains from athletes in a post-game press conference, or when we deign to enter the fray of a locker room media scrum, but Russell Westbrook refused to talk about what got him tossed right before the half in last night’s 137-134 OT Thunder win over the Suns. He repeated the same answer regardless of the question — similar to Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and his own pithy comments that failed to answer any questions. Read More »
Andre Roberson hasn’t lived up to offseason talk that he’s a much-improved three-point shooter in the season’s early going. But why chuck treys when you can dunk like this? Watch the Oklahoma City Thunder wing put Anderson Varejao on a poster with a sick swerving jam in tonight’s game versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. Read More »
Thunder superstar Kevin Durant is putting his home in the northwest Oklahoma City suburbs up for sale. Before you freak out Thunder fans, he’s purchased a pair of adjoining brownstone buildings in Deep Deuce right near Chesapeake Energy Arena. So Durant’s relocating in order to be closer to the court. This is a good thing. Read More »
Kevin Durant is the best. We could list all of the reasons here, but then we’d have to add a million more today.
Check out what the Red Cross just tweeted: Read More »

The Lakers only worry about being the best as measured by NBA titles, a metric that’s about as black and white as they get. More points on the scoreboard more nights than any other earns the title of champion, something that can be envied but never disagreed upon. (Unless you believe in Tim Donaghy conspiracy theories, I think we all can agree the regular season and playoffs are a pretty good test of who’s best, yes?) What I’m saying is you might not want to, but the Lakers have been called champions many times before. But is the NBA world ready to call the Lakers the league’s smartest team? Read More »

The start of the 2012-12 NBA season may feel like a long way off, but it’ll get here sooner than you think. Now that the NBA schedule has been released, we can start analyzing it like opening night is only two weeks away.
There are still moves to make, and a few key free agents don’t yet have homes. But for the most part, we know who will be good (Miami, OKC, San Antonio, etc.), we know who will be bad (Charlotte, above all else) and we know who/what will be entertainingly hilarious to watch (Metta World Peace, the first time Kobe yells at Steve Nash, Minnesota’s attempt to play nothing but white players instead of nothing but point guards all year). Besides those things, here are the top 10 games you should be looking forward to the most. Read More »
No one knows what to expect on the court tonight. OKC could come out and throttle Miami like the did in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Lakers, or the Heat could ride their Game 7 momentum directly into a Game 1 shocker. LeBron and Durant will probably spend parts of the night matched up against each other, and I’m sure D-Wade and Westbrook will also be taking turns going mano-e-mano. However, KD gave us a big clue yesterday on one thing: what sneakers he’ll be wearing. Read More »
It’s an unscientific formula, but here goes: Give Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook an open lane and space for a dribble and a couple of hops and someone’s likely getting slammed on. Read More »

Is there a better national team frontcourt than Spain? The Gasol brothers and Serge Ibaka: completely different and yet they complement each other perfectly. They have defense, length, athleticism, touch, shooting and toughness. Ibaka actually is saying he can be an All-Star either next year or the year after. We believe him. Everyone is riding the James Harden train right now and deservedly so. The Beard was balling in the playoffs and looks like he could be the second coming of a Paul Pierce-type player. But Ibaka is OKC’s third-most important player. Read More »
It’s hard to describe the feeling.
You know that girl you’ve secretly liked for the past six months but haven’t told anyone about. The one you comb your hair for, even though the class you have with her is at eight in the morning. The one you change your traditional walk-back-from-class route for, just so you can see her and say “hi.”
Yea, well imagine your best friend just started dating her.
It’s kinda like that. Read More »
