James Harden logged 35 minutes on the court in Thursday's game, more than any Oklahoma City player besides Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Thabo Sefolosha. He played 17 minutes, 13 seconds in the first half, a mere 28 seconds fewer than Westbrook and 29 fewer than Durant, who just about everyone agrees are pretty important to the Thunder's championship hopes. The manufactured controversy of whether Harden should start for the rest of the NBA Finals is therefore a waste of hot air. Thunder coach Scotty Brooks is not likely to move the Sixth Man of the Year into the starting...

If one Thunder player completely underwhelmed in Game One of the NBA Finals, it was sixth man extraordinaire James Harden.
Harden represents one of the biggest advantages the Thunder have in this series as the Heat are not exactly the deepest team and do not exactly have athleticism off the bench. Harden has the kind of game-changing offensive ability to pull Oklahoma City through...
In the past weeks, more rumors have been swirling that the Charlotte Bobcats are wanting to deal the #2 pick mainly because they realize they need more than a talented rookie to help their roster thrive. Eye On Basketball is reporting that Oklahoma City Thunder’s James Harden has been mentioned, which is rational given the [...]
Another day, another off-kilter way in which a person has expressed his or her admiration to the mega-bearded Oklahoma City Thunder’s budding superstar. To recap, and in no uncertain terms is this an exhaustive list: James Harden Head Cake James Harden Beard Forecast comic strip James Harden Building You know, if you pair the Pineapple [...]
MIAMI -- Bill Stricker has an idea for Father's Day.
"A win would be a great present," Stricker said of Scott Brooks coaching Oklahoma City against Miami in Sunday's Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
No, Stricker isn't actually Brooks' father. But Brooks looks at him that way.
When Brooks was less than 2 years old and growing up in Lathrop, Calif., his father...
There wasn't much to fear about the beard in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
NBA sixth man of the year James Harden scored only five points - 12 1/2 below his playoff average - in his finals debut but was hardly lamenting it Wednesday with his Oklahoma City Thunder up 1-0 in the series against the Miami Heat.
Harden had scored in double digits in all 15 playoff games this season...
The Charlotte Bobcats failed this off-season when they were unable to land the No. 1 overall pick (or, as we all know, Anthony Davis now) for this year’s NBA Draft during the lottery. With the second pick in their hands, they have many options to choose from: trade the pick, draft Thomas Robinson or draft Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
Although guys like MKG and Robinson are pretty good...
After playing 10 seasons in the NBA, Scott Brooks decided to go into the coaching field. After being the Oklahoma City Thunder’s coach for the past few years, he’s already found himself in a good place. He’s won Coach of the Year and he now has a chance to win an NBA title for his team, led by young stars in Kevin Durant, James Harden and Russell Westbrook.
Brooks is in the...
Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks is widely considered to be one of the NBA's top head men, and with his team just three wins from the franchise's first NBA championship since 1979 and a Coach of the Year trophy already under his belt, he's got the accomplishments to prove it.
But much of Brooks' success on the Thunder bench stems from the opportunity he received...
Los Angeles Lakers forward and social media sports star Metta World Peace made it clear during the NBA playoffs that he doesn’t like players all up in his grill after dunks (Oklahoma City Thunder’s James Harden walked into an elbow from Artest in the playoffs following a dunk); and he apparently likes his MTV Video...Read the Rest...
With Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook already signed to significant contracts, it’s obvious that it will be difficult for the Oklahoma City Thunder to also sign both James Harden and Serge Ibaka to significant contracts. Someone will most likely be the odd man out. And according to Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports, that odd man out may end up being James Harden.
Goodman reports that...
OKLAHOMA CITY—For at least one game, the Miami Heat seemed to figure out how to beat the Thunder and that is to get out in front and stay out in front.

With game three of the NBA finals taking place on Sunday in Miami, I’d like to know who you have winning the style war so far. Lost? Not up on your NBA postgame fashion? Let’s take a quick look at what HE wore for the Heat’s victory over the Thunder – their first home loss [...]
Looking forward to watching Game 3 tomorrow night between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat. The combined experience of the Heat gives them the big advantage in my opinion, but my goodness, the Thunder are so tenacious, and they simply never give up. It is going to be a fantastic finish if the first 2 games are any indication.In my opinion, one of the most important decisions...

So recently the Charlotte Bobcats have been looking at trading their second overall pick for some decent to good players considering their terrible record last year. I believe that they would be better off...
