Found May 12, 2013 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
It’s mother’s day so of course some of your favorite jocks took to Instagram to shout out their favorite girls. Dodgers’ star Matt Kemp, Thunder all-stars’ Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, Celtics Jeff Green, Knicks Iman Shumpert, Tulsa Shock’s Skylar Diggins and Giants WR Victor Cruz are just a few of the names who shouted out mama for the Gram. Check the photos and make sure you’re calling your mom’s not just texting or shouting them out on Twitter!

Video: Kevin Durant dunks in loss to Memphis

The Memphis Grizzlies won Game 3 by trading physical blows with the Oklahoma City Thunder. The 87-81 victory gave Memphis a 2-1 lead in a series that the Thunder may be doomed to lose. Memphis came out of the locker room ready to scrap in the third period besting the Thunder 22-15. Thunder leader Kevin Durant doubled-doubled with 25 points and 11 rebounds. After the game, Durant...

Kevin Durant wears Seattle Supersonics hat to Thunder practice

A couple of days ago, Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant posted an image of himself wearing a Seattle Supersonics hat to his Twitter account via Instagram. Durant played his rookie season in Seattle before the team moved to Oklahoma City to become the Thunder and since then, Kevin has spoken positively of the Emerald City. Earlier today, Durant was seen by Oklahoman sports writer...

Kevin Durant Says He Can Do More To Help Thunder Win

Kevin Durant has done everything to help the Oklahoma City Thunder stay afloat since Russell Westbrook went down with a torn meniscus. Durant most nights during these playoffs will lead the Thunder in scoring, assist, rebounds, steals, and anything else relevant. The Thunder are down 2-1 to the Grizzlies and their backs are against the wall, but as Durant told ESPN, “he still...

Knicks' Shumpert misses shootaround with bad knee

The New York Knicks might be without Iman Shumpert for Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal with the Pacers. The guard has a sore left knee. He did not participate in Tuesday morning's shootaround after missing practice Sunday and Monday. Coach Mike Woodson says a team doctor is flying to Indianapolis before the game to examine Shumpert. He was hurt during an awkward...

Knicks’ Iman Shumpert Experiencing Discomfort in His Surgically Repaired Knee Again

The Knicks’ Iman Shumpert admitted to me that he was “uncomfortable” when he came back from his ACL injury when I had the chance to chat with him several weeks ago. Translation: he probably came back too early, and has […]

After Matt Kemp, Hyun Jin Ryu latest Dodger to do cool thing for fan

Hyun Jin Ryu was captured by dodgerfilms on YouTube playing catch with a boy, only known to me as “Deuce”, in the stands during batting practice. After Matt Kemp made headlines everywhere for being a great guy, something he’s done before as well, Ryu once again brings positive headlines to the Dodgers for off-the-field reasons. In what has been a horrible 2013 thus far for...

Thunder left wondering 'What if?' this season

Every game has been close. Every game has been decided in the last five minutes. By all accounts, the Thunder and the Grizzlies are comparable and evenly matched. It's a 3-1 Memphis and it could be the other way around. Which is fitting, because for the Thunder, it's a "What-If" kind of finish to a season that fairly recently didn't require a question at all...

Kevin Durant Says Serge Ibaka’s Shooting Problems Are ‘All In His Mind’

Serge Ibaka wouldn’t normally be the focal point of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s offensive outlook, but with Russell Westbrook out for the remainder of the playoffs, Ibaka has become a focal point. Add to the equation that in essence, the Thunder chose Ibaka over James Harden last summer, and his lack of offensive punch becomes an even bigger issue. Ibaka is struggling mightily...

Dodgers on a long losing streak…but is help on the way?

Well, keeping up with the blog has proved difficult the last couple of weeks.  By all appearances, the Dodgers offense appears to be having similar success. It’s time for direct intervention.  The last time the Dodgers won was a week ago on Hanley Ramirez Bobblehead Night at Chavez Ravine when this writer was in attendance.  After last night’s 9-2 beat-down to the Arizona...

Thunder - Grizzlies Game Four: Hit Me With Your Not Good Enough Shot

Woo, I Say, Woo The first half was about as good as the Thunder can play in the post-Russell Westbrook Era. Kevin Martin was hitting shots, Serge Ibaka had shaken off his gremlins, Kevin Durant was being the most efficient scorer on the planet, and Nick Collison was making his Veteran Poise plays. They turned Mike Conley into a shooter rather than a passer, fought the Grizzly bigs...
