Found June 15, 2012 on NBA 24/7 365:

It seems like Kevin Durant’s been dunking on everybody lately, you say?  Well, that’s because Kevin Durant has been dunking on everybody lately.  With this running one-hander over Shane Battier, Durant collects his 5th POTD of the 2012 playoffs, a postseason record.  He actually set a new standard with his 4th poster, too, as no one had ever achieved more than three in any single playoff (Durant just so happened to have three last year).  Although his latest poster isn’t one that’ll knock your socks off, the sheer volume we’re dealing with here is impressive to say the least.

Win, lose, or tie in the NBA Finals, I’d say The Kid KD’s got that playoff poster award in the bag for a second consecutive season.

Shane Battier and Russell Westbook pull off epic double flop (Video)

In the first quarter of tonight's game two of the NBA Finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat, two players decided to pull off an epic double flop. Check out Miami's Shane Battier and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook both flopping like bloated bass:

Battier may be difference-maker for Heat

OKLAHOMA CITY When Shane Battier announced he was taking his talents to South Beach, there was no sitdown with Jim Gray, no sideshows and no announcements about a parade route. But if the free-agent signing of Battier was not quite so audacious, it was a move that was much like Battier himself understated, smart and sensible. And it is those ingredients, along with some deadeye...

Battier, Chalmers striving to join elite group

MIAMI - Grant Hill won two NCAA championship rings at Duke to one for Shane Battier. But Battier has a chance to gain the upper hand on something else. If it happens, you better believe Battier will remind the Phoenix forward any opportunity he gets. As long as I can do something Grant Hill didnt do, Battier, a Miami forward, said with a laugh Saturday about the possibility of...

Kevin Durant dunks on Shane Battier

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant took it to Shane Battier in the fourth quarter of the NBA Finals but it wasn't enough as the Miami Heat took Game 2, 100-96. Game 3 is Sunday.

Bosh, Wade, and Battier help James in Game 2

LeBron James cannot do it all himself and in Game 2 of the NBA finals he got help from his teammates especially Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. The big three and Shane Battier carried the Heat to a 100-96 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Bosh and Wade both bounced back from weak games in game 1. Bosh started for this game for the first time after being injured. This was...

Three adjustments for the Miami Heat for Game Three

The Miami Heat played a wonderful first half and did just enough in the fourth quarter to hold of a momentous rally and send thousands of Oklahoma City fans home shaking their heads. Shane Battier might have been the MVP of that game if SF LeBron James did not steal the show and prove himself in the Durant vs. James argument with an identical point line and better numbers...
