It was sad story when the Seattle Supersonics left Seattle and went to Oklahoma City. The Supersonics left behind 40 years of history. They also left behind a successful franchise and a bunch of passionate fans. Just think right now the Seattle Supersonics would be one of the best teams in the NBA as the Oklahoma City Thunder are now. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook would be dominating in Seattle not Oklahoma City. So how is Seattle going to get a team? I don’t see the NBA expanding just because so many franchises are struggling to make money. Plus that would make 31 teams in the NBA and then the NBA would have to find another franchise to make an even 32 teams. So the most likely way Seattle will get a team is by a franchise relocating to Seattle. That team is the Sacramento Kings. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports Seattle is closer to getting at team. The Maloof family is finalizing an agreement to sell the Sacramento Kings to a group that hopes to move the franch...

Some New Fashion Ideas For Russell Westbrook

Clearly, Russell Westbrook likes to be on the cutting edge of fashion both on and off the court.  Just yesterday he arrived at LA’s Staples Center wearing what appears to be a leather t-shirt, then took the floor in a pair of Thunder-themed Air Jordan III player exclusives that sent Twitter into a frenzy (personally, I think it’s an ugly colorway).  In another recent on-court...

Kevin Durant steals pass and goes coast-to-coast for slam (Video)

If you happen to be an NBA player, I think it's a pretty good idea to know where Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant is on the floor. The Minnesota Timberwolves lost track of Kevin in the second quarter of tonight's game and they paid the price with this steal and fastbreak slam by KD:

Thunder avoid another letdown, pound Wolves

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Kevin Durant scored 26 points, Russell Westbrook added 23 and the Oklahoma City Thunder overpowered the outmanned Minnesota Timberwolves 106-84 on Wednesday night.

Timberwolves-Thunder Preview

Kevin Durant thinks the Oklahoma City Thunder didn't take their last opponent seriously enough, resulting in a loss to the worst team in the NBA. Their latest meeting with the Minnesota Timberwolves also ended in defeat. Durant and the Thunder hope a brief stop home can help them regain their momentum and re-establish their dominance of the shorthanded Timberwolves on Wednesday...

Durant's 42 helps send Lakers to 6th straight loss

Kevin Durant hit a 3-pointer in the final second of the first half and did a full reverse somersault to celebrate a 16-point lead. The Thunder were running the Lakers out of their own building, and not even Kobe Bryant could stop them. Oklahoma City is again clearly among the best teams in the Western Conference, and the struggling Lakers may not have enough time left in the season...

Thunder remain grounded after battering Lakers

LOS ANGELES -- There was a time when a 15-point win over the Los Angeles Lakers on their home floor was a cause for celebration. At least a smile or two. Not in the Oklahoma City Thunder locker room, though. Not with the Lakers just a shell of their former selves. Not with bigger fish to fry. These Thunder have their eyes on a grander prize. Oklahoma City built a 20-point...

Thunder starts slowly, then overwhelms Timberwolves

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City knows it can score almost at will. The NBA's second-highest scoring team is never worried about going in prolonged slump. So when the Thunder had only 16 points in the first quarter Wednesday when facing a beleaguered Minnesota squad, Kevin Durant said his team wasn't worried. He knew the offense would come around at some point. Until then...

Thunder 116, Lakers 101

LOS ANGELES -- Oklahoma City built a 20-point lead early in the third quarter and the younger, faster Thunder sprinted away from the lackadaisical Los Angeles Lakers in a 116-101 win on Friday night at Staples Center. Kevin Durant had 42 points, including 25 on 10-of-15 shooting in the first half, and added eight rebounds and five assists to lead Oklahoma City. Durant had 16 of...

Preview: Thunder vs. Lakers

All season long, the Lakers (15-20) have been searching for an answer to their struggles as a team, any spark that they can use as motivation to turn things around. That may have come in the final 6 minutes of their 108-105 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.
