Of course Kevin Durant‘s grandmother likes watching the Thunder forward play, and she even sends him congratulatory texts after the game. But she wishes her grandson would stop swearing on the court. Durant’s grandma sent him a text after Monday night’s Oklahoma City win over the Phoenix Suns that ended with “Kev kev stop cussing so much they be showing u when u do.” Durant posted a screen shot of the text on Instagram with the caption “Sorry grandma lol.” Durant finished the game with 41 points, five rebounds, two blocks and two assists. The 40-point effort was his second in three games. Durant got ejected for the first time in his career on Jan. 2 for cursing at NBA official Dan Crawford. He’s been acting out more in general this season, as he drew three technical fouls in three games that week. Durant’s penalties, nor the scolding from his grandmother have affected his game. The Oklahoma City forward third in the NBA with 28.9 points per game. He’s also averaging 7.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists on the season. The Thunder are first in the Western Conference with a 30-8 record. Check out a screenshot of Durant’s grandmother’s text in the photo below. Photo via Instagram/sniperjones35 Photo of the Day Hockey is back!

You go somewhere else. It’s kind of like Happy Gilmore, you just try to go to a happy place.” – At least Matt Bryant didn’t try to channel The Waterboy on his season-saving kick against the Seahawks on Sunday Tweet of the Day Quote of the decade from Packers OLB coach Kevin Greene on whether Dom Capers should return: "Does a fat baby fart?"—   (@ProFootballTalk) January 16, 2013 Apparently that means yes? Video of the Day We’re not so sure this lip reading is accurate, but it’s hilarious.
