Tweet Last summer, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant could be found on a court somewhere giving average hoopers buckets, because “basketball never stops”. The recent Roc Nation Sports signee is back at it this summer, as these videos of Durant mixing cats in the Goodman League prove: Further evidence why Durant is one of [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
NOT PASSED OVER
For those of you who may have forgotten, Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant was not selected number one overall in the 2007 NBA Draft, that ended up being Greg Oden. So, the fine folks over at Nike decided to do a rather hilarious commercial where KD gets selected number one during the “Shirts vs. Skins” draft: *** Kevin Durant gets drafted first in “Shirts vs. Skins” [For The Win]
Always nice to see NBA players against regular hoopers because you see just how good you have to be to play at the NBA level. Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant has been known to spend time during the off-season playing pickup basketball and courtesy of Bleacher Report we see that hasn’t changed this year.
Tweet The 2013 NBA Draft is underway and there has been no shortage of surprises, both with selections and trades. Among those chosen in the first round was Steven Adams, a 7’0″ center from Pittsburgh, who went to the Oklahoma City Thunder with the 12th pick. OKC’s front office felt Adams was the right [...]
What became very clear during the postseason for the Oklahoma City Thunder was not so much the loss Russell Westbrook, but what life was like without James Harden. We believe that had Harden still been on the roster, the team could have overcome the loss of Westbrook, and at least advanced to the Western Conference Finals for a rematch from the previous year with the Spurs.

Oklahoma City isn't likely to be the epicenter of the NBA offseason this summer, not after last year's blockbuster trade of James Harden to Houston.
The Thunder are expected to follow last year's roster shake-up with a series of additions in Thursday night's draft - with hopes of returning to the top of the Western Conference.
Oklahoma City's season came to...
The Oklahoma City Thunder are pursuing a trade for a Top-5 pick and are primarily targeting Alex Len.
The Thunder are looking to package their first round picks and Kendrick Perkins to move up.
The market for Perkins is expected to be soft considering his contract.
No GM gets more blind devotion than Sam Presti. Why, you ask? Just look at his list of first round picks since 2007:
’07 No. 2: Kevin Durant
’08 No. 4: Russell Westbrook
’08 No. 24: Serge Ibaka
’09 No. 3: James Harden
’09 No. 25: Rodrigue Beaubois
’10 No. 18: Eric Bledsoe
’10 No. 21: Craig Brackins
’10 No. 26: Qunicy Pondexter
’11 No. 24: Reggie Jackson...
The Oklahoma City Thunder are trying to move up to the No. 2 pick from the Orlando Magic.
The Thunder would select Victor Oladipo.
Oklahoma City owns the No. 12 overall pick, acquired from the Toronto Raptors.
Trading James Harden appears to have been a rare mistake for Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti especially with how the season ended since Russell Westbrook’s injury really cost them any chance of a return trip to the NBA Finals. Suddenly, OKC finds themselves needing to add some bench pieces to have a chance to remain among the best out West.
