The pro-government Turkish newspaper The Daily Sabah has reported that prosecutors have issued an arrest warrant for Oklahoma City Thunder center Enes Kanter, accusing him of “being a member of a terrorist organization.”
During a press conference this morning and an appearance on Outside The Lines, Thunder center Enes Kanter provided more details about his brief detainment in Romania yesterday.
Oklahoma City Thunder center Enes Kanter has been detained in Romania, claiming that he has been held by police for hours and that his passport has been seized on orders from the Turkish embassy.
Below you’ll find a room list found before Game 1 at the Four Seasons in Houston (right across from the arena), where the Thunder were staying for their first-round series against the Rockets. We didn’t run it then because we didn’t want Rockets fans pulling the fire alarm or making late-night calls to the rooms. But …
I wouldn’t blame anyone for wanting to swear off basketball forever after watching the fourth quarter of Game 5 between the Rockets and Thunder, which was defined by ill-advised foul calls and ill-advised shots, most of them coming from the Thunder’s star player, Russell Westbrook.
The Houston Rockets won Game 5 over the Thunder tonight, shooting their way out of a handful of Russell Westbrook-induced holes and taking a close one, 105-99. Much like the entire series, the game was excruciating to watch and the Thunder’s brief flickers of life did little to stave off the feeling that they were…
Rarely does an offensive rebound off an intentionally flubbed free throw work, but Oklahoma City Thunder teammates Steven Adams and Russell Westbrook pulled it off and made the most of it.
Look at this shit. This shit sucks.
Professional athletes do and say a lot of mean things to each other over the course of a game, but I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen anything as disrespectful as the Rockets’ bench treating Andre Roberson’s bricked free throw into a live comedy special.
Russell Westbrook and Steven Adams shared a postgame podium after yesterday’s loss to the Rockets. The first question came from Westbrook’s old rival, Berry Tramel, and even though it was addressed to Adams, it was Westbrook’s time to shine.
The NBA is looking into an incident between Rockets guard Patrick Beverley and a fan that occurred after Friday’s Game 3 in Oklahoma City.
Russ’ll give it to you straight.
For the first time I can remember, Russell Westbrook looked tired tonight.
In what was a thoroughly embarrassing 31-point Game 1 defeat at the hands of the Houston Rockets, perhaps no Thunder player was exposed more than backup center Enes Kanter.
The NBA regular season is over and done with, and as the dust settles before the playoffs start this weekend, it’s time to take stock of what looks like the closest MVP race since Steve Nash won his second consecutive award after the 2005-06 season. Russell Westbrook, Kawhi Leonard, James Harden, and LeBron James are…
If you’re still somehow unconvinced that Russell Westbrook is the NBA MVP, take a look at his box score from last night’s game against the Nuggets: [The smoldering remains of the city formerly known as Denver].
Oh yeah, no way this guy is the MVP.
Russell Westbrook’s season-long one-man show of frenzied triple-double glory will finish with a stat line it deserves. With eight assists last night, Westbrook sealed his fate as the first player since Oscar Robertson to average a triple-double over the course of a season.
