2014-15 Thunder Player Grades: Kevin Durant Gets an "F" For Foot

A lingering foot injury wrecked the season for Durant and the Thunder. Full Name: Kevin Wayne Durant Nickname: "KD." "Slim Reaper." "Velvet Hoop." Some people call him "Durantula," and one person (him) calls him "The Servant." Contract Status: Nothing major, just the biggest contract story in all the league. Since LeBron James went back to Cleveland, the focus has turned to Kevin Durant, who is playing out the last year of his deal with Oklahoma City before becoming the most sought after free agent in the summer of 2016, with every single franchise calling his name, none bigger than his...

Coming to terms with Stephen Curry as the MVP

Is this a dream? I remember last year when Kevin Durant won the MVP. It was such a huge revelation (to me) that someone other than Lebron James could claim the trophy. James had been so dominant for so long that Durant's breakthrough felt almost surreal. And yet, when it happened, it made sense.

When something happens halfway across the world, there is a certain sense of unreality to that event. It has happened to someone else....

Mark Jackson still taking shots at his old team

While working ABC’s broadcast of Game 1 in the Western Conference semifinal series between the Warriors and Grizzlies on Sunday, Mark Jackson popped off a series of covert zingers.

Oklahoma City small forward Kevin Durant will become a free agent in the summer of 2016, the same time that David Lee’s contract comes off the Warriors’ books and when the salary cap is expected to jump because of the new TV...

What Kevin Durant's new Sonic commercial says about his chances of joining the Wizards

Last November, Kevin Durant announced a new partnership with Sonic Drive-In. At the time, it seemed like great news for Thunder fans, since Sonic is an Oklahoma City-based company. But as we said at the time, Wizards fans still have plenty of reasons to believe Kevin Durant is coming home when he hits free agency in 2016. Since the announcement, there hasn't been much news on the Sonic/Durant front until this week, when Sonic announced they would be coming out with a Kevin Durant Signature Slush. Here's what the slushes will include, according to their press release: The addition of two...
