If you ask Oklahoma City Thunder fans, Kevin Durant ran from a challenge when he jumped ship and signed with the Golden State Warriors this summer. A new Jordan ad featuring Russell Westbrook appears to capitalize on that sentiment. Some run, some make runways. #AJXXXIhttps://t.co/tPpJ2HANsa — Jordan (@Jumpman23) August 26, 2016 It’s no secret that Westbrook is bitter about...
It’s become a trend in the NBA world when a superstar leaves his team for a new one, that fans have to have some type of outrageous or loud gesture to show how angry they are. For LeBron James, it was burning jerseys. Some claimed to do the same for Dwyane Wade and Kevin Durant, but for Durant, we have something a little bit different. A Change.org petition is urging for the...
“Always look on the bright side of life,” the Monty Python crew once sang. With Kevin Durant jumping ship this offseason, Thunder center Steven Adams is trying his best to follow that advice. In a press conference at the North Shore Events Centre in his native New Zealand on Wednesday, Adams saw the good that Durant’s departure might do for his game next season. “It isn’t...
The Oklahoma City Thunder lost a superstar this offseason, and their replacement plan is just coming together. Should they expect to fall hard, or can they strike a note of optimism for the future?

Enes Kanter has opened himself up for a great deal of criticism by sharing his views on politics in his native country of Turkey. That apparently is not limited to fans who know him as an NBA player, as Kanter’s family is also said to have disowned him. A story from Seyma Eraz and Yunus Paksoy of Daily Sabah explains how members of Kanter’s family turned their backs on the Oklahoma...
The Oklahoma City Thunder got the biggest win imaginable in the wake of Kevin Durant ditching the franchise, inking Russell Westbrook to an extension. Once thought impossible with Westbrook headed to free agency next summer and perhaps looking forward to leaving with the team gutted, August 4 goes down in team history (for now, at least) as a day the small-market dream stayed alive...
Russell Westbrook will be always nothing if not different. From his unmatchable, violent approach to the game, his fashion curation and detachment with the media, Westbrook is a perennial MVP candidate and commercially viable superstar that doesn't do anything like anyone else. Signing a three-year, $85 million extension with the Thunder exactly a month after Kevin Durant left the...
NBA analysts and fans expected the Oklahoma City Thunder to deal Russell Westbrook in the wake of Kevin Durant's departure - with the assumption being that Westbrook would eventually bolt in free agency - but the former UCLA star will be staying in Oklahoma for another year at least after news broke that he will sign a three-year contract renegotiation. Lakers fans had been hoping...

This upcoming 2016-2017 Oklahoma City Thunder team will look substantially different. Not only has the departure of Serge Ibaka, Randy Foye, Dion Waiters and Kevin Durant drastically altered the team, but the additions of rookie forward Domantas Sabonis, vet Ersan Ilyasova, and a star in Victor Oladipo will make the team appear foreign compared to the squad last season. But for...
Yes, I know what you’re thinking, there is absolutely no way that the Oklahoma City Thunder benefit from one of the top 5 players in the league hitting the road for the Warriors; but just here me out on this one. Now of course Durant’s skill set is unquestionable. He has one of the smoothest shots in the game, can score from anywhere on the floor, and his ability to move like...
