Found May 30, 2012 on NBA 24/7 365:

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 him his b!tch.

To Ibaka’s credit, he was the league’s leading shot blocker… so we’ll give Timmy D a 7.5.

Lil’ Wayne says Thunder wouldn’t allow him to attend playoff game

Rapper Lil’ Wayne frequently attends NBA games, but he says he was denied by the team when he tried going to Game 3 of the Western Conference finals between the Thunder and Spurs in Oklahoma City on Thursday: Was going to go to the Thunder game tonight but was denied by the team to be in their arena. Wow. Smh. Go Spurs! — Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) May 31, 2012 ...

Bibi Jones & Jesse Jane Are Oklahoma City Thunder Pornstar Superfans

Something very weird is happening with this Oklahoma City Thunder team that destroyed the defending champion Dallas Mavericks and moved on to the NBA Western Conference Semifinals. Out of nowhere, this team located in out-of-the-way Oklahoma has become the darling franchise for pornstars such as Bibi Jones & Jesse Jane. Why this convergence of porn & four-year-old franchise...

Durant must be Thunder's top dog

Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant had just kicked the butts of what until about midway through the third quarter was being hailed as the most perfect NBA team. Include yours truly among those planting such sloppy, wet verbal kisses on San Antonio's posteriors. The Oklahoma City duo had us all looking, if not foolish, then at least slightly premature with Thursday's 102...


TIME magazine recently took a look at the “Nerd-fashion wave” that has spread across the NBA, with Oklahoma City Thunder forward, Kevin Durant, referenced as the “front man for the geek-chic craze.” The post-game fashions during this year’s NBA playoffs have put the trend on full display, with colorful trousers and Steve Urkel-inspired specs spotted on players across the...

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”...

Durant, Westbrook can't rescue Thunder in Game 2

The Oklahoma City Thunder finally found a way to slow down the San Antonio Spurs. It still wasn't enough to beat them. Tony Parker had 34 points and eight assists, Manu Ginobili added 20 points and the Spurs stayed perfect in the playoffs with a 120-111 victory in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals Tuesday night. Kevin Durant scored 31 points, Russell Westbrook had 27...

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. (Our advised response for commissioner David Stern: Go Dress Code Red.) The Thunder also provided evidence that the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers could stand to hire a few more quick employees. And they've reminded us how astute...

Flaming Lips record song for Thunder playoff run

I was a big Flaming Lips fan in high school. In my opinion, their music is probably the best example of  modern psychedelic rock. Everyone probably knows the band’s hit “She Don’t Use Jelly”, which captures a lot of those elements. Turns out the Oklahoma based band are big Thunder fans, and as such wrote [...]

Thunder’s Harden on what cost them Game 1

It really looked like the Oklahoma City Thunder might steal Game 1 in San Antonio. The Spurs were turning the ball over like crazy and OKC had a 9-point lead going into the 4th quarter. Then the Thunder only scored three points through the first half of the fourth, letting the Spurs back in and even giving them a three point lead with six minutes to go in the game. At that...

Thunder respond with confidence in must-win

OKLAHOMA CITY Now everyone can just exhale a bit. Probably should at this point. Just sit back. Take it easy. Don't forget, this is the same Oklahoma City team that swept past Dallas in the first round of the playoffs and then knocked out the Lakers right after. They just hadn't shown it yet. Thursday, the Thunder did, shaking free from a two-game funk where they lost...

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...

The Sport Sofa Quick Thoughts – Spurs vs. Thunder

                Another dominating performance by the Spurs Tuesday puts them up 2-0 in their Western Conference Finals series against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Five quick thoughts from the game: Scott Brooks is becoming an issue. Is he slightly overrated? Is the talent on the team helping him? For the 2nd straight game, there were questionable decisions made throughout...

Swagger Jacking Russell Westbrook

OKC Thunder All-star guard Russell Westbrook continues to make a name for himself in the fashion world for his vibrant collection of shirts,trousers and nerd frames, their calling it Geek chic. Russell has been setting trends and creating a buzz with his bold choice of attire during the 2012 NBA playoffs. The question is where is Russell getting his gear, well Aglamslam assembled...
