Kevin Durant is following in the foot steps of many celebrities before him, and entering the restaurant business. The Oklahoma City All-Star forward will be building a new restaurant, KD's, in OKC's Lower Bricktown entertainment district. The restaurant is scheduled to open in early fall 2013. The menu -- which has been termed as 'upscale Southern cuisine' will feature chicken satay, popcorn lobster, and honey-dipped fried chicken, among other Durant favorites. "I am very excited to be opening my first restaurant in Lower Bricktown," Durant said. "I look forward to spending a lot of time there with my fans and friends, and enjoying great food and live music. I want customers not only to enjoy incredible food at my restaurant, but to always gather for a great experience." Interestingly enough, the 10,000 square foot restaurant will be placed right beside another celebrity restaurant -- Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill. The restaurant is set to be built right along the Bricktown Canal, offering outdoor patio access for guests, and live musicians from local and national musicians will be featured on select nights. "This new restaurant will undoubtedly be a hotspot for the Oklahoma City community, Thunder fans and tourists alike," said Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett. "We are lucky to have a professional athlete like Kevin Durant who is helping make Oklahoma City a great place to live, work and have fun." KD's is being developed by Hal Smith Restaurant Group in partnership with K. Durant Restaurant Group, LLC. (via Durant Restaurant Group)

Does one guy make the difference for OKC?

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...

Ibaka Be Blocka…But What Else?

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...
