Thunder need help for Game 6 without Westbrook

OKLAHOMA CITY Russell Westbrook popped up on the big scoreboard at Chesapeake Energy Arena Wednesday night and promptly got the biggest cheer of the night. The All-Star guard was watching the game from a suite, bum knee and all, but it looked like it was the rest of the guys on the court who were the ones hurting. Undoubtedly, the Thunder miss him. It's shown in the past two...

Derek Fisher and Kevin Martin Pull off the Very Rare Double Flop (Video)

Derek Fisher as a player is known for his ability to knock down big shots, maneuver out of contracts, and flopping. And it would appear that he has taken his Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Kevin Martin under his wing, because they pulled off a very rare and well synchronized double flop during Game 5 of their first round playoff match up against the Houston Rockets last night. Check...

Synchronized Flopping Makes Its NBA Debut

The only thing more shameful than Scott Brooks’ desperate Hack-Asik strategy during Houston’s 107-100 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday was this tandem flop by defensive black holes Derek Fisher and Kevin Martin. Wait, what’s that? You want the remix? Gladly: Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Thunder teammates join forces to execute the rarely seen double-flop (video)

Despite the NBA’s best efforts to put the kibosh on the troublesome scourge that flopping has become in its league, during the regular season as well as in the playoffs, practitioners of the dark art continue to come up with new and inventive ways to commit the heinous act. During Wednesday night’s Game 5 showdown between the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake...

Oklahoma City Thunder become first team to perfectly execute a double-flop

You have heard of syncronized diving and syncronized swimming, but have you ever heard of syncronized flopping? Well, if you were watching Game 5 of the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets, you saw Derek Fisher and Kevin Martin nail a perfectly timed double. If you missed it, enjoy: Now if they could only give more support to Kevin Durant. H/T The Basketball Jones

CBS Fires Blogger for Calling a Thunder Cheerleader Chunky

Seems like a silly thing to get fired over, but never underestimate the power of social media. Once it went viral the reporter didn’t stand a chance. Ironically. it was a female reporter who came under fire, I think a male reporter would have known the implications of saying such things and would have just avoided the topic. Also, I don’t think men are wired to write stories...

Kendrick Perkins says Thunder aren’t stressed, tweets picture of Celtics ring

The Oklahoma City Thunder are heading in the wrong direction since Russell Westbrook went down with a knee injury. After putting the Houston Rockets in a 3-0 hole, the Thunder now find themselves preparing for Game 6 on the road. Kendrick Perkins is not concerned. No team has ever come back to win an NBA playoff series after being down 0-3, but that hasn’t stopped the speculation...

Why has no NBA team ever come back from a 3-0 deficit? The Knicks and Thunder should not take that for granted.

The 2004 Yankees will tell you how easy it is for a playoff series to get away from you. I vividly remember the cover of the sports section of the NYTimes on the day of game 4 against the Red Sox and there were brooms all over it, as they approached a sweep. Just a few days later, the Yankees were eliminated by their long-time rival, and before they knew it, the curse of the Bambino...

Kevin Durant fires back at Royce White: ‘Who is that?’

Houston D-Leaguer Royce White trash talked Kevin Durant over Twitter, but it doesn't really work if the Thunder star doesn't even know who you are.

Westboro Baptist Church Plans on Picketing Outside Game 5 of Oklahoma City Thunder/Houston Rockets Series

If the idea sounds a little strange to you then you are not alone. When I first heard that the Westboro Baptist Church was going to hold a protest outside of Chesapeake Energy Arena Wednesday I thought, "Wow, what a horrible name for an arena" followed quickly with "What in the world do those people hate about basketball?" The answer was pretty easy--Jason...

Durant Responds To Royce White’s Twitter Trash Talk: “Who Is That?”

Kevin Durant has responded to Royce White’s Twitter taunts, and he did it with a dagger.  Royce watched the Rockets 107-100 win over OKC this past Wednesday night and then took to Twitter to take some unwarranted shots at Durant. #bbpBox_329816397309964288 a { text-decoration:none; color:#256E16; }#bbpBox_329816397309964288 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; }@KDTrey5...

Kevin Durant on Royce White: “Who is That?”

  Yesterday we reported that Houston Rockets first-round draftee Royce White, was trolling Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant via Twitter on Wednesday night following their loss to the team he has yet to play for this season. Well per the Houston Chronicle, when told of White’s cyber taunts towards him, Durant asked a legitimate question. “Who is that?” Durant said...

Hack and Lose

Fear The Beard I don't mean to overreact to this, because it's just one first round playoff game between two teams that won't likely advance past the second round, due to injuries and inexperience. There's a very real chance that no one will think very much about this later, and that I'm just dealing with the ugly visual of a Game Five loss at home, in a series...
