“I think it’s sad. I don’t see anyone mentioning any of our guys,” he said. “We get a couple more wins this week, and we could have one of the better records in the West. We don’t get much mention.”

Before Wednesday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Nuggets coach George Karl said, “We could have a very good record” at the all-star break, “but I haven’t heard one name mentioned (for all-star consideration). Anywhere.”
“Kenneth has probably been the most consistent of our starters,” Karl said, “but he’s an energy guy, so he’s not going to get much love.”

“Probably simple and solid,” Karl said, when asked what he tells McGee most. “I think he tries to be spectacular. Basketball is a game of possession after possession of doing things the right way, doing your job and letting the spectacular come. I think JaVale tries to find the spectacular and forces the spectacular when if you just let Andre Miller and Ty [Lawson], let us...
Most NBA coaches want more out of their players on the court. Denver Nuggets coach George Karl wants JaVale McGee to play like Tim Duncan, arguably the greatest NBA power forward of all-time. How does Karl expect McGee to play like Duncan? The answer may surprise you:
“I think he tries to be spectacular,” Karl said of McGee. “Basketball is a game of possession after possession...
Russell Westbrook a Ke$ha fan? I think so. The Thunder guard was caught lip-syncing to Ke$ha’s “Die Young” prior to OKC’s game against the Mavericks on ESPN:
OKLAHOMA CITY With the Thunder running away from the Denver Nuggets Wednesday night, the Oklahoma City bench got some major minutes.
The Thunder led by as many as 28 points and all five starters got to sit and watch the entire fourth quarter.
That meant another opportunity for DeAndre Liggins and Reggie Jackson. It meant another night on the bench for Eric Maynor. Thunder coach...
Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant is never too old to be scolded, at least by his grandmother. After the Thunder’s 102-90 win Monday against the Suns he received a text message from his grandma that was half cute and witty and half reprimanding.

Singer Keri Hilson and Thunder shot-blocker extraordinaire Serge Ibaka are dating. Hilson was recently asked about her boo while promoting Gillette’s “Kiss & Tell Experiment” at the Santa Monica pier on Wednesday. When asked by Hip-Hollywood about her status with Ibaka, Hilson blushed and stated that “he’s a gorgeous great guy.”
Check out Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook as he uses his free time on the bench to work on his vocals. Seems he really likes Ke$ha’s latest “Die Young”. It’s a shame that he wasn’t mic’d up.
Serge Ibaka's streak of missed games ended at two Wednesday. Ibaka played 27 minutes and blocked five shots, but his offense was lacking. Ibaka scored just five points (2-5 FG and 1-1 FT) to go along with six rebounds and an assist.
It's good to see him back in action, and he should be in all lineups going forward.
Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma Thunder took on the Dallas Mavericks in a Friday night western conference match-up and Russ was definitely excited. The cameras caught Russ singing along to a “Die Young,” a Ke$ha song, and it sure looked like he knew every last word.
