It’s a shame that this dunk didn’t count. The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Game 2 first round playoff bout with the Memphis Grizzlies had just gotten underway when Russell Westbrook exploded through the lane like he was shot out of a cannon. A moving screen was called and the bucket waived off.  It was still an incredible dunk, though. ...

I can appreciate James Harden’s honesty about the situation. The Houston Rockets shooting guard admitted he gets asked at least once a day why he’s no longer a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder. In an interview with Hannah Storm of ESPN, Harden opened up about the scenario that ended with him being traded to the Rockets. Harden said that Thunder general manager Sam...

Kevin Durant must be frustrated or something. KD and the Oklahoma City Thunder are wrapping up the regular season against a Detroit Pistons team already on vacation. Already wrapping up the scoring title and joining Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain as the only men to lead the league in total points for five straight seasons, Durant tried to obliterate the rim with...

Oklahoma City Thunder big man Serge Ibaka is no stranger to blocking shots. Ibaka is always at the top of the NBA when regarding shot blockers, as he is averaging 2.6 of them per game. Ibaka is going to put that skill to good use with UNICEF. Per the Oklahoman, Ibaka will be donating $500 to UNICEF for every shot he blocks in the upcoming 2014 NBA Playoffs. “The...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vvx3WUFHM5I Talk about away to open up the game. On the very first play in a game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night, Serge Ibaka posterized Greg Stiemsma on a one-handed dunk. I guess Ibaka was pissed for getting posterized by DeAndre Jordan the other night that he had to deliver a poster of his own. Ibaka...

The 2013-14 NBA regular season is coming to an end as the playoffs are underway. Of course, the awards will also be presented and the main one, of course, is the MVP. Basically, it has been a two-man race between Kevin Durant and LeBron James, but who comes out on top? James has made the case this season that he could win the MVP award for the third straight year, but...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=_nWb8VE5ws0 In case you missed it, 6-foot-11 DeAndre Jordan smashed a dunk all over the NBA’s second-leading shot-blocker, Serge Ibaka. Jordan may have gotten the poster dunk, but it was the Oklahoma City Thunder that got the win over the Los Angeles Clippers. ...

I guess Drake is an Oklahoma City Thunder fan now. After cheering on Kentucky during the 2014 NCAA Tournament, then UConn and then being exposed a bandwagon sports fan of several teams, the rapper has added yet another team to the growing list. Per Jovan Buha of ESPN Los Angeles, Drake was cheering on the Thunder during their game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday...

At one point this NBA season, LeBron James made a case that he could become the NBA MVP for the third year in a row. However, Kevin Durant has done far too much for allowing that to happen, and James—a career four-time MVP—has admitted that the Oklahoma City Thunder star is a frontrunner for the league’s most prestigious award. “I would say he’s the...

Kevin Durant recently surpassed Michael Jordan’s streak of 40 straight games with 25 points or more in a game. That would make some guys happy, but for Durant all he cares about are the Ws. Durant told Darnell Mayberry of the Oklahoman that he wishes the streak was over. “I don’t really care about it. I wish it was over,” he said. Seeing how the streak...
