Lil B Confirms Kevin Durant's Injury Caused By The Based God's Curse

Lil B was at MIT last night, giving what The FADER called "a groundbreaking lecture" at the school's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The lecture sounds like it was quite the event, "presenting nuanced observations on workplace efficiency, human empathy, and GMOs," as well as a "riveting… » 11/22/14 11:40am 11/22/14 11:40am

Kevin Durant To Dwight Howard: "You're A Pussy"

I don't think you can really call what happened between the Thunder and Rockets last night a "basketball game," what with both teams shooting under 30 percent and the Rockets winning 69-65 (even the mid-90s Knicks would blanch at that score). An ugly game like that tends to breed contempt—both sides let loose some… » 11/17/14 9:58am 11/17/14 9:58am

Michael Beasley Reduced To Status As Kevin Durant Flunky

At one point early on in The Offseason: Kevin Durant, that HBO reality show aimed at getting its star better endorsement deals, walking brand Kevin Durant flies some of his buddies out to Los Angeles, where they intend to stay for the summer. We're introduced to Childhood Friend Cliff Dixon, Manager & Childhood Friend… » 11/06/14 3:20pm 11/06/14 3:20pm

Perry Jones Gets Injured, Further Proves Thunder Are Cursed

Injuries are normal in basketball, and every year there's at least one team that draws the short end of the stick and gets hit with a wave. But what the Thunder are going through right now is something else, their playoff chances in the ultra competitive West diminishing every single day. Already facing a month… » 11/04/14 9:43pm 11/04/14 9:43pm

NBA Players Are Coming To Get Their Money Back In 2017

The NBA's bonkers new TV deal means there is going to be more money flowing into the league than ever before, and everyone is already thinking about 2017, when the players or owners can opt out of the current CBA and re-negotiate how all that revenue is going to be divided up. Based on comments from a few high-profile… » 10/07/14 3:29pm 10/07/14 3:29pm

Darren Rovell Can't Tell A Two From A Five

Darren Rovell is a petty dickhead. Because people make so many jokes about how he is a money-grubbing, soulless, post-human shill for rich old men and corporations, his sheer petty dickheadedness can go underappreciated, but it's really what defines him, which is why the very best Rovell stories involve him not only… » 9/18/14 6:00pm 9/18/14 6:00pm

The Thunder Are The Thunder Again, And This Is A Brand New Series

I suppose we can go ahead and forget about the first two games of the Western Conference finals, which saw the Serge Ibaka-less Thunder getting swallowed whole by the Spurs while Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant did their best to fight off the inevitable. We can forget those two games because Serge Ibaka is back,… » 5/28/14 10:19am 5/28/14 10:19am

Russell Westbrook To Kevin Durant: "Wake Up"

What we have here (via CJ Fogler) is an excellent opportunity for projection. A fairly innocuous exhortation from one frustrated player to another after a defensive lapse, but in the context of the Spurs' blowout, their 2-0 series lead, and Kevin Durant's and Russell Westbrook's shitty shooting night, feel free to… » 5/22/14 8:54am 5/22/14 8:54am
