SantosSerge Ibaka has earned the nickname around town of I-block-a, and showed off why late in the first quarter of tonight’s Game 2 of the NBA Finals. With just seconds left in the first quarter, LeBron James was coming furiously toward the rim looking to throw down a thunderous one-handed dunk. Ibaka had other plans, and he showed LeBron why he led the league in blocks this season...

A taxing year is coming to a familiar finish for Oklahoma City Thunder guard Derek Fisher.
It all started with him being front and center during the NBA lockout as the president of the players' union, then grew more complicated when the Los Angeles Lakers traded him away after he'd won five championships with the franchise.
Fisher signed on with Oklahoma City, and he'...
The Oklahoma City Thunder showed off their resiliency once again in coming back from behind after being down by double figures in the first half. Everything that could lead to a Thunder loss was happening early on.

The NBA's advertising campaign this season was built around one word: BIG. Oversized heads on the league's star players filled some of the commercials. Other promotional ads had giant words superimposed on highlights of game action.
But this year's NBA Finals could be decided by who's better at plying small.
The Oklahoma City Thunder countered the Miami Heat'...

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Not many know much about the guy who dominated Game 1 of the NBA Finals other than he's pretty good.
Kevin Durant is a mystery even to some of the players trying to beat him.
"It's one of those things where I respect his game, but I don't know him, either. I know probably just as much as you guys know," Miami's Dwyane Wade said Wednesday...

Late thursday night, after the Thunder lost 100- 96 to the Miami Heat in game two of the NBA Finals, star forward Kevin Durant was a little stubborn at the podium. As the press conference started, Durant...

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant took it to Shane Battier in the fourth quarter of the NBA Finals but it wasn't enough as the Miami Heat took Game 2, 100-96.

For the folks who use Yelp, it's not surprising that some reviews aren't exactly glowing of certain establishments. However, this review about a fan trying to get a haircut cuts right to the core of Seattle's love-hate (mostly hate) relationship with that team in Oklahoma currently in the NBA Finals.Let's read the harrowing tale of a man named Rich who attempted to...

Well, the Thunder brought there A-game as the destroyed the Spurs 102 to 82. The highlight of the night came when Thunder superstar Kevin Durant threw down a monster dunk.
Late in the 1st quarter Russell Westbrook...
Man, this series is off to a great start.
Even when the Heat went up 16-2, you knew at some point, the Thunder would make it into a game. Oklahoma City waited almost the whole game, but they didn’t disappoint.
The biggest difference I saw in last night’s game compared to Game 1 was the help LeBron James got from his All-Star teammates. James has done what should be expected...
