Thunder don't need to make major moves to win title

OKLAHOMA CITY The Thunder have Kevin Durant and hopefully a well rested Russell Westbrook. There's Serge Ibaka and Thabo Sefolosha and Reggie Jackson. Hey, it's a longshot, but Kevin Martin might even return if he doesn't find a free agent deal more suitable than what OKC might offer. Essentially, the pieces of last year's 60-22 team are all in place, so what...

Report: Bynum refusing to work out

Andrew Bynum is more than willing to listen to teams trying to woo him for his services. But he won't work out with any team before signing, according to a report by Yahoo! Sports.

Kevin Durant keeps it trill by eating at Popeye’s

We all know NBA superstars have the financial means to eat whatever they want. There isn’t a meal in the world that Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant could not afford, but that doesn’t mean he likes to spend more of his $20 million paycheck than he has to. “Popeye’s, f all that sushi, and [...]

Andrew Bynum, big supporter of self-sabotage

With any lucky, Andrew Bynum will be out of Philadelphia shortly, so I figured I should take advantage of what little time I have left and write yet another piece about Bynum while he is still topical to the 76ers.This piece ran originally on and kicked up a lot of comments; people didn't have a lot of kind words for the big guy. But seriously, refusing to work out...

Signing with Jay-Z won't change Durant's game in OKC

Kevin Durant announced a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal on Twitter. He checks on old ladies during basketball games and signs a carpal tunnel's amount worth of autographs. With a smile to go along with it. Last May, when the Thunder lost in the Western Conference semifinals, he answered all the questions, then thanked reporters for being there. Hey, no problem, KD. ...

Kevin Martin Heads To TWolves

Free agent forward Kevin Martin is signing with the Timberwolves, sources say. The deal will be for 4 years and around $30 million, and leaves the Thunder with even less on their squad from the “Here’s James Harden for nothing!” decision. Que sera.

You can stick a fork in the Oklahoma City Thunder.  Their days as a title contender are just about done.  I wrote this about them two years ago, after they made it the Western Conference Finals and put up a game effort against the eventual champion Dallas Mavericks: As soon as the old lions fade away, the world will be theirs.  But if you check the history, this rarely comes to...
