GIF: Kevin Durant Calls For Ball Before Russell Westbrook Airmails Jumper

Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

We’re only two games into the seventh season of the partnership between Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Frankly, we’re surprised it took just this long for the ill-fated tandem to endure more time-honored disharmony. As the reigning MVP calls for the ball at the top of the key, watch the Thunder’s guard – note the lack of “point” – lose control of the ball before airmailing a contested jumper. Read More »

Except, for a stretch of four games, Andre Iguodala was just 3-for-18 with the Dubs 2-2 in those games.

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