Thunder Caught In NBA's Transition From Big To Small

The first half of the Golden State Warriors game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday played out exactly like the Warriors recent games with the San Antonio Spurs and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The defending NBA champions took the best shot from one of their main rivals and it bounced off them like it hadn't even happened. The Thunder raced out to an early 9-0 lead before...

Billy Donovan didn't rule out having Kevin Durant play center as well. "I don’t know about that necessarily. I think we’ll have to see the way the game goes,” Donovan said. “Kevin is one of those guys, I...

Oklahoma City Thunder in need of a more dominant inside presence

With Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combining for a league leading 51.1 ppg this season, the Oklahoma City Thunder have high hopes for a deep playoff run. However, the lack of production from the power forward and center position is holding the Thunder back and may very well be what has delayed them from taking the next step.

Oklahoma City Thunder: Serge Ibaka and the All-Star Game

After the recent announcement of the Western Conference All-Star starters, I began to wonder about Oklahoma City Thunder power forward Serge Ibaka. More specifically, the selections got me wondering whether or not Ibaka should be an All-Star. Let’s start off with a few things. I realize that the All-star Game is a mess. Fan voting is so out of control that every year underserving...

WATCH: Russell Westbrook throws great alley-oop to Serge Ibaka

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook can do it all. He can drive the lane, make a great pass, pull up for a jumper or throw down a sick dunk. If the threat of Westbrook scoring the ball is too much for opposing teams, and they focus on taking either him or Kevin Durant away, he’ll just hook up his teammates. That’s what happened in Friday’s game against the Bulls...

It's Time To Give Serge Ibaka The Credit He Deserves

Believe it or not, the Oklahoma City Thunder have a star player on their roster that is not named Kevin Durant or Russell Westbrook. That player is none other than defensive standout Serge Ibaka. It didn't take the 24th pick in the 2008 NBA Draft very long to earn a reputation of being an elite shot blocker in the league. Ibaka, who played in Europe during the 2008-09 season...

Can the Thunder make the playoffs without Serge Ibaka?

Oklahoma City’s season has been complicated by injuries from the beginning.
