Ernie Johnson Jokingly Asks Westbrook "How Was The Execution Tonight?"

On Friday night Russell Westbrook raged at the media, refusing to answer questions with anything other than "we executed," and telling one reporter that he flat out didn't like him. After tonight's Thunder win over the Heat, the NBA TV crew conducted an otherwise mundane interview with Westbrook—you can watch the… » 1/21/15 12:35am Wednesday 12:35am

Column About Russell Westbrook Disappears, Comes Back With New Ending

The Oklahoman's Berry Tramel received the brunt of Russell Westbrook's ire when the point guard got surly on Friday night—Tramel is the one who Westbrook was addressing when he said, "I don't like you"—and this morning he published a column about the whole kerfuffle. Apparent technical issues made the column… » 1/19/15 3:19pm Monday 3:19pm

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

Man, Did Anthony Davis Whomp The Shit Out Of The Thunder Or What

There's no one particularly SportsCenter-y highlight from Anthony Davis's 38-point, 12-rebound, three-block eruption against Oklahoma City last night. He didn't block all three shots in one leap; or tear the entire backboard off the stanchion with a dunk; or, like, spike a dead-on-arrival Kendrick Perkins jumphook… » 12/22/14 12:42pm 12/22/14 12:42pm

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

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

Russell Westbrook Out Four Weeks With Broken Hand

There goes the Thunder's plan for keeping the ship afloat while waiting out Kevin Durant's injury, as they will now be without Russell Westbrook for at least a month. Westbrook broke a bone in his right hand in the team's second game of the season against Thursday, and had surgery Saturday to repair the damage. » 11/01/14 1:53pm 11/01/14 1:53pm
