Reggie Jackson Attempts Desperation Shot With Four Full Seconds Left

Reggie Jackson hit a big three-pointer to bring the Thunder within two points of the Grizzlies just inside one minute to play. He then hit a floating layup to the tie the game at 80-80 with 30 seconds left. The score would stay at 80-80 and Oklahoma City and Memphis went to their third consecutive overtime because… » 4/27/14 12:29am 4/27/14 12:29am

The West Is OKC's Until Kevin Durant Says Otherwise

In the four weeks since Russell Westbrook's arthroscopic surgery, the Oklahoma City Thunder has fallen from 23-5 (.821) to 33-10 (.767) — that is, the team has racked up half its losses during just 15 games.

Reggie Jackson Once Hit Three Home Runs In One Game, Does Not Want…

Sports Illustrated recently had a nice long piece on Reggie Jackson. We learn from Jackson that he is not cocky or attention seeking—in the same paragraph we learn that he told Phil Taylor to meet him at a "building he owns, where he keeps a fleet of vintage automobiles on the ground floor" and in the same article he… » 7/07/12 12:00pm 7/07/12 12:00pm
