Report: Durant disliked spotlight, notoriety in OKC

Kevin Durant has long been regarded as a humble, approachable superstar who was content to avoid the bright lights in bigger cities and be the king of a middling market in Oklahoma City. It turns out that it may have been a negative, and Durant never wanted to be a king in the first place. ESPN’s Royce Young, in a story on the Russell Westbrook extension, noted that the public...

Hunter Pence shows off black eye from foul ball

It is safe to say Hunter Pence is a gamer. If you need further evidence of that, his response to taking a foul ball off the face should convince you. In Saturday’s game against the Washington Nationals, the Giants outfielder fouled off a pitch that bounced up and hit him just below the right eye. In fact, he got drilled so hard you could immediately see the seams of the baseball...

Steve Kerr rips critics of Kevin Durant, Warriors

The 2016-2017 Golden State Warriors are already one of the most hated teams in sports history, and the season hasn’t even begun. That’s what happens when you’re the best, and everyone assumes the Dubs will be the best after they signed Kevin Durant. But having an absurd amount of star power shouldn’t make the Warriors the “villain,” at least according to their head coach. “To think...
