POTD 5/29/12: Tim Duncan on Serge Ibaka

Two games into the Western Conference Finals, the Oklahoma City Thunder find themselves in a bit of a predicament.  Down 0-2, they face the daunting task of beating a team that’s won 20 in a row four times in five games.  To make matters worse, they’ve yet to find an effective defensive lineup.  Kendrick Perkins is too slow, and Serge Ibaka… well, Tim Duncan tends to make...

Post game style – Russell Westbrook & Kevin Durant

I fear that the days of showcasing what Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant are wearing in postgame are slowly waning. The Thunder was dropped by the Spurs in game two of the Western Conference finals on Tuesday night. Postgame for the two – who along with James Harden combined to score 88 points and still [...]

The Myth of Sam Presti

On June 7, 2007, Sam Presti took over basketball operations in Seattle. The team was dreadful, their two best players wanted out, and Seattle was about to lose the team. Fast forward five years, and the Thunder is playing in its second straight Western Conference Finals. To say that Sam Presti has done a poor job would be laughable. However, for some reason, he seems to be “untouchable”...

Spurs matchup creates big trouble for Thunder

Thanks to the Oklahoma City Thunder, we're now tragically aware of a Nerd Chic movement digging its frightening tentacles into the NBA.

Flaming Lips: Thunder Up:Racing For The Prize!!

VIDEO: Manu Ginobili and James Harden Double Flop

Flopping in the NBA seems to have become even more prominent this year. From the Miami Heat to Blake Griffin to Manu Ginobili (the biggest flopper in the league) the NBA is looking more like soccer everyday. Sunday night during Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals between the Spurs and Thunder, we witnessed something that has rarely been seen. The double flop. Manu Ginobili and...

Thunder can't finish near-upset in Game 1

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- The Oklahoma City Thunder almost did it: Almost stopped one of the longest winning streaks in NBA history, started the Western Conference finals with an upset and finally shed their underdog label.

Derek Fisher Haunts Spurs Again, Eight Years After Game-Winning Shot With 0.4 Seconds Left

Most of the basketball-watching world wonders when the heck Derek Fisher is going to retire, mostly because he is 37 years old and has five NBA championship rings. He has nothing left to prove on the court. The San Antonio Spurs probably wonder the same, but for a very different reason.
