Kevin Durant wears Seattle Supersonics hat to Thunder practice

A couple of days ago, Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant posted an image of himself wearing a Seattle Supersonics hat to his Twitter account via Instagram. Durant played his rookie season in Seattle before the team moved to Oklahoma City to become the Thunder and since then, Kevin has spoken positively of the Emerald City. Earlier today, Durant was seen by Oklahoman sports writer...

Grizzlies - Thunder Game Five: Kevin Durant's Waterloo

Needs a new mouthpiece The simple and stupid way to look at this is that Kevin Durant didn't shoot well, so he must not be that good as we thought. But what we really learned by the end of this series was that having the second-best player in the world doesn't really matter when the rest of your teammates are losing their matchups. Just like in the last series, Memphis started...

Kevin Durant Says He Can Do More To Help Thunder Win

Kevin Durant has done everything to help the Oklahoma City Thunder stay afloat since Russell Westbrook went down with a torn meniscus. Durant most nights during these playoffs will lead the Thunder in scoring, assist, rebounds, steals, and anything else relevant. The Thunder are down 2-1 to the Grizzlies and their backs are against the wall, but as Durant told ESPN, “he still...

Kevin Durant Recognizes Defensive Job Done By Tony Allen to Contain Thunder Star

Lionel Hollins has gotten the Memphis Grizzlies within a win of reaching the Western Conference Finals, a place the franchise has never been. His team has thoroughly outplayed a Thunder team that includes Kevin Durant, who is performing at a higher level than he ever has before. Yet that success should not insulate Hollins from criticism for some very curious decisions. Channeling...

Thunder left wondering 'What if?' this season

Every game has been close. Every game has been decided in the last five minutes. By all accounts, the Thunder and the Grizzlies are comparable and evenly matched. It's a 3-1 Memphis and it could be the other way around. Which is fitting, because for the Thunder, it's a "What-If" kind of finish to a season that fairly recently didn't require a question at all...

Kevin Durant Says Serge Ibaka’s Shooting Problems Are ‘All In His Mind’

Serge Ibaka wouldn’t normally be the focal point of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s offensive outlook, but with Russell Westbrook out for the remainder of the playoffs, Ibaka has become a focal point. Add to the equation that in essence, the Thunder chose Ibaka over James Harden last summer, and his lack of offensive punch becomes an even bigger issue. Ibaka is struggling mightily...

Grizzlies-Thunder Preview

The Memphis Grizzlies are showing a knack for closing out tight games against the Oklahoma City Thunder. All that's left to prove is whether they can finish off a playoff series that's been nip and tuck throughout and move on to the Western Conference finals for the first time in franchise history. In each of the first three games of the series, the go-ahead bucket was...

Thunder - Grizzlies Game Four: Hit Me With Your Not Good Enough Shot

Woo, I Say, Woo The first half was about as good as the Thunder can play in the post-Russell Westbrook Era. Kevin Martin was hitting shots, Serge Ibaka had shaken off his gremlins, Kevin Durant was being the most efficient scorer on the planet, and Nick Collison was making his Veteran Poise plays. They turned Mike Conley into a shooter rather than a passer, fought the Grizzly bigs...
