Aw Hell, Kevin Durant Is Done For The Season

The Thunder Hold A Tight Grip On Their Players' Media Availability

Russell Westbrook doesn't necessarily care for the media, and he doesn't try to hide that. He and Oklahoman reporter Berry Tramel had a tense exchange in January, with the Thunder point guard outright saying he didn't like Tramel. Grantland's Bryan Curtis looked into the media-team relationship in Oklahoma City and… » 3/20/15 4:15pm 3/20/15 4:15pm

Kevin Durant Out Indefinitely With Persistent Foot Soreness

Thunder GM Sam Presti held a press conference today to announce that his team is super boned.

Oh My God Oh My God I Think Russell Westbrook Could Beat Up My Dad

Last night, while we were all arguing about a black-and-blue dress, Russell Westbrook and a gaggle of tall men who were not Kevin Durant were a half-hour down the road from where the llamas were dodging the cops, playing the Phoenix Suns. If you missed it, or forgot, the Oklahoma City Thunder lost a heartbreaker in… » 2/27/15 2:55pm 2/27/15 2:55pm

Westbrook And Durant Don't Seem Too Sad About Losing Reggie Jackson

The Oklahoma City Thunder didn't really have choice when it came to trading backup point guard Reggie Jackson, a talented but flawed young player who made it very clear that he'd like to be a starter elsewhere. They got a pretty good haul, grabbing an array of solid players to fill out the bench in exchange for one… » 2/20/15 10:00am 2/20/15 10:00am

Kevin Durant Is Turning Into Drake Right Before Our Eyes

In case you haven't noticed, Kevin Durant is making a transition. Tired of the unselfish, humble, respectful, One Of The Good Ones role he was involuntarily cast in when the sports press needed someone to hold up in opposition to the post-Decision LeBron, Durant is apparently in the midst of a public awareness… » 2/18/15 5:26pm 2/18/15 5:26pm

Kevin Durant To Media: "You Guys Really Don't Know Shit."

Kevin Durant's in New York for tonight's NBA All-Star game, and yesterday he had to spend some time speaking to media. One reporter asked about Scotty Brooks's job status, since Durant's Oklahoma City Thunder are 28-25 and currently a half-game out of the Western Conference playoffs. In response, the reigning league… » 2/15/15 2:15pm 2/15/15 2:15pm

Only Kevin Durant Can Make Dropping 40 Look This Easy

Before we get to the highlights of the hyper-efficient 19-shot, 40-point eruption Kevin Durant put on the Nuggets last night in Denver, let's make a deal. I'll grant that, yeah, it came against a terrible team whose own coach has accused it of tanking, if the sorts of readers who'd be inclined to dismiss a… » 2/10/15 10:50am 2/10/15 10:50am

Kevin Durant To Chris Paul After Jumper: "You're Down 20 Now, Homie"

The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the hell out of a shorthanded Clippers team today. The game was never really close, making it the kind of contest that's perfectly suited for some inspired trash talk. » 2/08/15 5:24pm 2/08/15 5:24pm

Kevin Durant Calls A Basketball Writer A Dumbass

The Oklahoma City Thunder gave forward Nick Collison a two-year extension today, and NBA reporter Chris Palmer criticized the contract and the team. So, Kevin Durant called him a dumbass. » 2/03/15 2:50pm 2/03/15 2:50pm

What Is This Batshit Anti-Nike, Anti-Kevin Durant Website?

This is just one of the many completely insane image macros that can currently be found at From what I can gather, this site is run by a crazy person who believes two things very strongly: Nike is an evil, Godless corporation, and Kevin Durant is the devil. » 1/29/15 4:04pm 1/29/15 4:04pm

Long-Limbed Kevin Durant Obliterates Marcin Gortat With Dunk

It is a good thing that Marcin Gortat is a goofy-ass guy with funny hair, who chills watching porn on Saturday night, and has a humvee and pig to play with, because this is the kind of dunk that could ruin a man without a balanced perspective on life. » 1/21/15 11:00pm 1/21/15 11:00pm

What's Going On With Russell Westbrook And The Media?

Last night Russell Westbrook submitted a line of 17 points, 17 assists, and 15 rebounds—becoming just the fourth player to ever do so—as the Thunder handily beat the best team in the league. He should've been happy—hell, maybe he was—but it didn't stop him from going off on reporters in the postgame media session. » 1/17/15 2:10pm 1/17/15 2:10pm

Okay, Which One Of You Tweeted Something Mean At Kevin Durant?

Kevin Durant Suffers Sprained Ankle

Kevin Durant left Thursday night's matchup against the Warriors with an ankle injury, and he will not return.

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.

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
