Thunder Film Room: Novak takes Westbrook to next level

Novak spent 9 minutes on the floor with KD and Westbrook. We take a look. In the Thunder's first pre-season game against the Timberwolves, coach Billy Donovan played Steve Novak for 11 minutes. About 9 of those 11 minutes were spent on the floor with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. This is very interesting, as any lineup with Durant and Westbrook on the floor would be expected to get regular minutes. Novak came to Oklahoma City last year in the Kanter-Perkins deal, but hardly saw any minutes for the Thunder. Indeed, the last time Novak could truly call himself a regular contributor to...

Westbrook outpaces Durant in Thunder victory over Timberwolves, 122-99

11 assists in 12 minutes is nothing new for Russ. Box Score | Play by Play | Shot Chart In Kevin Durant's return to the floor, the Thunder managed to rout the Minnesota Timberwolves, 122-99. The Timberwolves were down by as many as 18 in the first half, and never got closer than 9 in the second half. The reason for that was the Thunder's scorching offense. OKC shot an amazing 11 of 15 from the floor in the first quarter. That kind of solid field goal percentage comes from great ball movement. Indeed, the Thunder had 34 team assists to just 17 team turnovers. Westbrook near triple-double,...

Kevin Durant opens first KDCF basketball court in Oklahoma City

#BuildItAndTheyWillBall While the crazy Stephen A. Smith tiff churned through the internet this week, Kevin Durant was keeping his commitments to the people of Oklahoma City and taking care of what really matters.

Stephen A. Smith tells Kevin Durant and/or the world that "you do not want to make an enemy out of me."

I'm sorry that I'm even sharing this with you and giving Stephen A. Smith even one more iota of screen time with other human beings. But I think it's important to document what freaking weirdo this guy is. If you missed it, Smith pronounced to the world that Kevin Durant would consider going to Lakers if he didn't re-sign with OKC. That was weird enough because KD emphatically said afterward that he doesn't talk to Stephen A. Smith ... ever. But what's weirder is that Smith then retorts with a statement that says he doesn't have to talk to someone to know what they are considering in their...

Kevin Durant's low NBA 2K16 rating explained

Injuries + Height = Lower ratings, implies 2K NBA 2K16 was officially released this Monday, and is easily the best selling basketball simulation on the market today. Thus, many Thunder fans may have been peeved to find out that Kevin Durant is only the fifth best player in the entire game. Durant was ranked behind LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, and James Harden. In a recent Grantland article, Mike Stauffer, an NBA 2K producer, was asked about why KD was ranked so low: "He shot very well last year, so his ratings are still on par with what they were the year before. This past...

KD2LA? Durant says Steven A. Smith is 'making up stories' about him

Kevin Durant aggressively shot down Steven A. Smith's report that he is prioritizing the Los Angeles Lakers among potential free agent destinations next summer.

Kevin Durant destroys that Lakers free agency rumor

Kevin Durant calls Stephen A. Smith a liar. There's been a rumor floating around that Kevin Durant is leaning toward joining the Los Angeles Lakers once he hits free agency in the summer of 2016.  The rumor was lit aflame by Stephen A. Smith, who tossed out a lob that Durant is looking at a relocation to Los Angeles. That pass went into the crowd, hit a fan, and KD wasn't nice about it: Kevin Durant on the Lakers rumors: "I don't talk to Stephen A Smith at all. No one in my family, my friends do. So he's lying." — Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) October 2, 2015 Smith isn't the...

Throwback Thursday: Russell Westbrook dunking on Kevin Durant

They've been on the same team since Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook joined the NBA, but for one brief glimpse we got to see them go head-to-head at the 2009 NBA All-Star Weekend Rookie Challenge. KD was on the sophomore team and Russ on the rookie team. Looks like Russ might have had something to prove! Durant did as well, however, and would end up taking over the game for the sophomores and named MVP. Photo credit: Ronald Martinez/
