Iguodala on Durant: ‘It must be fun playing with a guy like that’

It’s a not-so-well-kept secret that the Golden State Warriors would be interested in potentially adding Kevin Durant via free agency this offseason.

Kevin Durant sees ‘bright’ future for Thunder – Is he staying put?

Kevin Durant was understandably disappointed after his team officially blew its 3-1 Western Conference Finals lead over the Golden State Warriors and lost Game 7, but some of the things he said should give Oklahoma City Thunder fans hope that he might not leave.

What was, what is, and what could have been for the 2015-16 Oklahoma City Thunder

In five days, the Thunder went from being on the verge of the NBA Finals to having to stress about the future. There's still plenty worth celebrating, though. 3-1, 3-2, 3-3, 4-3. It happened so fast. Just five days to be exact. I think that's what makes this so tough. The 2015-16 Oklahoma City Thunder were a roller coaster ride from the beginning. They were never a perfect product...

Stephen Curry daggered the Thunder with this shot

The Golden State Warriors did what champions do at home in Game 7 on Monday night, coming back from a 13-point deficit to win 96-88 and punch their ticket back to the NBA Finals. League MVP Stephen Curry was a big reason the team emerged victorious, as he dropped 36 points on a 13-of-24 shooting performance. He came up big when it mattered most, too. When Kevin Durant got hot in...

Game 7 at is hardly a lock: An NBA cautionary tale

I have been saying for a week that being down 3-1 in a seven-game series, while not a position to be desired, is not fatal to a very good basketball team. If that team is the defending NBA champion, there’s even less cause for panic. To support that position, I merely had to recount my own experience covering the 1995 Phoenix Suns, who had the defending champion Rockets in a 3...

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors gave us a Western Conference Finals Game 6 Saturday night that lived up to the hype, and then some. The Thunder had a chance to close out a series that nearly nobody had them winning at home, and after a 108-101 Warriors victory, it’ll be going back to Oracle Arena for Game 7 on Monday.

Thunder blow golden opportunity

The sleeping giant has awakened. The Oklahoma City Thunder were poised to pull of an epic upset as they sat on a 3-1 lead on the 73-win Golden State Warriors. That now seems like a long time ago. The Thunder had an incredible opportunity to close out the series last night as they nursed a lead in the fourth quarter, but Klay Thompson went wild with 11 three-pointers, which seemed...

WATCH: Steven Adams makes a monster dunk on Draymond Green

Steven Adams and Draymond Green have had their fates linked throughout the Western Conference Finals, mainly because of Green’s multiple shots to Adams’ nether regions.  But Adams got what might be the ultimate revenge during Saturday night’s Game 6 – putting Green on a poster. Watch this insane dunk from Adams during the second quarter of Game 6 where he used every inch...

Warriors, Thunder taking turns beating each other in the opposite style

The Oklahoma City Thunder were never going to win Game 5. At least, that's what it felt like for most of the night - not against that team in that situation in that arena. Though for one long moment, as a Kevin Durant 3-pointer hung in the air with 35 seconds remaining, nobody managed a breath. For a moment, the impossible seemed suddenly plausible. But the ball caromed off the...

The Warriors need emotional and tactical solutions

The Golden State Warriors have a challenge in their Game 5 showdown with the Oklahoma City Thunder that is unique in scope.

For those who have either forgotten their Greek mythology or never bothered...

Suspension or not, Draymond Green’s kick may cost Warriors

Who would have thought that the outcome of the Western Conference Finals may hinge on a kick? In a series in which Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and Steph Curry are on the floor giving fans a nightly show, the deciding factor in the series may not fall on their world-class talents. Of all things possible, a kick has the probability of being the most important moment of the series...
