Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder are in the San Francisco area this week as they set to take on the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night. On Wednesday, Durant decided to drop by and hang out with Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants.
So what’s the big takeaway from this photo? If you thought Lincecum looked like a little kid now that he is sporting a new haircut and ditched his long locks, you must love seeing him with his boys regular haircut next to KD. I know I do.

Kevin Durant‘s wallet will be a little lighter after the NBA took offense at one of the Thunder star’s post-dunk celebrations Thursday night. The league fined Durant $25,000 for making a “menacing gesture” at the Golden State bench after throwing down a fast-break dunk in a 116-97 win over the Warriors. The “gesture” didn’t seem to be anything too scandalous, but the...

The play that led to Durant's costly celebration occurred with about 1:45 left in the second quarter of Oklahoma City's 116-97 win at Golden...
Not too long ago, Tim Lincecum was one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball. His long hair and his unique delivery were on the top of baseball. He won back-to-back NL Cy Young awards, won 2 World Series starts, and was the face of the franchise. He was only 27, right when a pitcher is entering the prime of their careers. Then, last year happened. His regular season was terrible...

Last night the Oklahoma City Thunder rolled all over the Golden State Warriors. In that game the Thunder had a great sequence of plays by their two stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
Late in the 2nd quarter, Westbrook had a great block on Stephen Curry. Durant got the rebound and went coast to coast and threw down a nasty one handed dunk. Check it out below.
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Russell Westbrook scored 25 points, Kevin Durant added 21 and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Utah Jazz 90-80 on Tuesday night.

While Kevin Durant couldn't help but joke a bit about Thunder teammate Russell Westbrook's outburst in the third quarter against the Portland Trail Blazers, putting away games is all part of Oklahoma City's groundwork for the playoffs.
Westbrook scored 33 points, including 17 in the third quarter, and the Thunder beat short-handed Portland 106-90 on Friday night.
The Jazz were not the ones expecting to be overpowered and outplayed by a struggling Thunder team. While there are still plenty of question marks for Oklahoma City, there was no doubt whether who won and who lost Tuesday night.
Here's our report card of last night's contest:

The Giants are playing good baseball against some decent teams.
The Dodgers, Cardinals and Rockies all have had good starts to the season and the Giants have hung in there. I’m not quite sure how.
Starting pitching has been weird – for the most part. Jonathan Sanch- I mean, Tim Lincecum wins his first start despite walking seven guys and Matt Cain allows nine runs...

Tim Lincecum struggled mightily last season. Hopefully Matt Cain wont follow in his steps after getting tagged with nine earned runs right after receiving their World Series rings.

This team has it all: A great lineup led by the Upton brothers paired with a solid pitching staff that has...
