Point Guard blocks a 7-Footer

Roy Hibbert Wants to Surpass Dwight Howard as Best Center in NBA

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were tired of the smack talk from Kobe Bryant

According to Ric Bucher of CSN Bay Area, Oklahoma City Thunder players Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook wanted to prove Kobe Bryant wrong.  Apparently, during the 2012 Olympics in London, Kobe Bryant was constantly talking so much smack towards the two Thunder players.  Kobe was saying that Durant and Westbrook will not be able to get to the NBA Finals again after the Lakers...

Thunder looking good without The Beard

OKLAHOMA CITY There was a moment Sunday night in the Oklahoma City Thunder's 104-93 win over the Indiana Pacers that drilled right past the noise and clutter and hit at the very center of why this team has emerged as perhaps the best in the league.

Pacers disappoint against Nuggets

The Indiana Pacers appeared to have momentum heading into their showdown with the Denver Nuggets at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, so it's disappointing to see them crumple down the stretch and hand the Nuggets a 92-89 victory.
