You Got Dunked On:
BEST OF MAXIM
In the preseason, people were asking me if they should take Serge Ibaka in the third round or the fourth round, as if those were the only two options. Sure, he’s great with the blockin’ and all, but I do not consider him a well rounded Center. Last night’s game is about what I expected, although with more rebounds and less blocks: 4 points, 9 rebounds, 2 blocks. His value...
OKLAHOMA CITY James Harden went off again.
Somehow, I get the feeling people around these parts are going to be talking about Harden this season.
Forget the first-guessing, that's too difficult. It's all second-guessing now. It's a full-blown case of, "Should they or shouldn't they have traded Harden," and it's infected everyone...
Filling the shoes of James Harden in Oklahoma City is no easy task. However, through two games, Kevin Martin has proved that he’s up to the challenge.
The biggest concern for the Thunder coming into the first week of the season was how long it would take Martin to mesh with his new team and his [...]
The Oklahoma City Thunder got its first taste Thursday night of life without James Harden, part of a buzzer-beating 86-84 loss that should drive home the obvious and its consequences: A new era in Thunder basketball has begun, and that's one of several reasons the Western Conference is now up for grabs.
We're just a few games into the season, yes, but Oklahoma City's...
As Thunder GM Sam Presti was watching his former sixth man run circles around the Pistons, I suspect he had a moment of recoil. At least he should have.
First road challenge
The Portland Trail Blazers started their season off on the right foot with a 116-106 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers, but now it’s time to take their act on the road against the defending Western Conference champions, the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Matchup: Portland (1-0) @ Oklahoma City (0-1)
Venue: Chesapeake Energy Arena
Time: 5:00 PM PT
Since there was only one game on the NBA schedule yesterday, the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs featured our dunk of the night.
Watch as San Antonio forward Tim Duncan lowers the boom on Thunder forward Serge Ibaka:
While the most recent addition to the Oklahoma City Thunder likely won't hinder the team's chemistry, it might take some time for the Atlanta Hawks and their new faces to come together.
The Thunder look to build on their first win when they host the Hawks on Sunday night.
Russell Westbrook scored 32, Kevin Durant had 23 points with 17 rebounds and veteran newcomer Kevin...
In addition to Tony Parker hitting that buzzer beater on Thursday night to lift the Spurs over the Thunder, Tim Duncan reminded you why he is still one of the best power forwards in basketball. Duncan may be a 15-year NBA vet but he can still get up. Check out his dunk on Serge [...]
