So when Russell Westbrook was announced out for the playoffs...

CBS Fires Blogger for Calling a Thunder Cheerleader Chunky

Seems like a silly thing to get fired over, but never underestimate the power of social media. Once it went viral the reporter didn’t stand a chance.

CBS Houston fires troll who attacked “fat” Thunder cheerleader

It looks like the controversy between OKC Thunder cheerleader Kelsey Williams and CBS Houston/blogger Anna-Megan Raley or “Claire Crawford” isn’t going to last in our media cycle.

Because like Thunder cheerleader...

Thunder vs. Rockets highlights: KD’s dunk and Serge Ibaka’s blown lay-up

The Houston Rockets managed to hold off Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder in an elimination game Monday night.
