    Miami Heat Victory Parade And Rally

    Kevin Durant and James Harden tried to play down what the Lakers did during their appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. “Good for them,” was Harden’s comment. But don’t think the rest of the league didn’t take notice of what happened in Los Angeles. Chris Bosh, who tends to be a pretty frank interview,…

  2. Video: John Wall kills it at the Drew League

    goodman John Wall

    Last summer, John Wall was the king of the Summer League pro-am games. Well, him and Kevin Durant. But Durant went on to nearly be king of the NBA regular season, as he had a monster year that cemented his status as the best pure scorer in the game today. Wall… he went on to…

  3. Kevin Durant says Olympic experience made him better

    US forward Kevin Durant celebrates after

    It’s been fun watching the spin on the Olympics and having star NBA players in them. Team owners go in saying “we don’t want our players to risk injury or wear themselves down.” Then somebody looks up the numbers and the other side spins that after the Olympics players often have better years, which is…

  4. The Inbounds: The unfathomable jump Jeff Green needs

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Jeff Green

    I’ve pretty much always been on the side that thinks Jeff Green can develop into a capable NBA player. In Oklahoma City, he was “the other guy” drafted with Durant, part of the central core. His role was nebulous, falling into that generic “forward” category. It took a while for the debate to start over…

  5. Kevin Durant says it’s now time to rest, focus on Thunder

    Kevin Durant

    First there was the NBA finals. Then there was a trip to London to pick up some gold with a few friends. Then there has been a week of red carpets and movie promotion. It’s been a busy summer for Kevin Durant. With the release of his movie “Thuderstruck” this weekend Durant has been making…

    The Goodman League is they place to play Pro-Am summer games in Washington D.C. It’s where Kevin Durant plays and works out in the summer when he’s not hanging out in London.

  7. Anthony Davis says Olympics made him more confident

    Aug 21, 2012, 1:51 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    Anthony Davis pretty much fell backwards on to the London Olympic team. Jerry Colangelo and Mike Krzyzewski like him as a prospect, but it took injuries to Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin (his in training camp) for Team USA to get desperate enough to grab the No. 1 overall pick of the Hornets.…

  8. Kevin Durant is very happy for Serge Ibaka

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Serge Ibaka

    Serge Ibaka is making Al Horford money. He is making Joakim Noah money. Ibaka’s new four year, $48 million contract puts him up there with those All-Stars, he is making basically what they are. And Kevin Durant couldn’t be happier for him, he told the Oklahoman. “I’m happy for him. He deserves every penny. He…

  9. The real question: How much tax is Oklahoma City willing to pay?

    Aug 20, 2012, 5:43 PM EDT

    Olympics - Opening Day

    Clay Bennett and the Oklahoma City ownership has said before they are willing to pay some luxury tax to keep the core of their team together. Next year that will be put to the test. They have Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook on max deals, and they just signed Serge Ibaka to a four-year, $48…

  10. Kevin Durant is going to spend this week talking acting

    It’s “Thunderstruck” week!! This coming weekend Kevin Durant’s movie “Thunderstruck” hits the theaters nationwide. So rather than spending this week recovering from his gold medal trip to London and getting in a little run with teammates, he is going to be walking the red carpet and doing the movie promotion thing. The movie’s premise isn’t…

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    Right after capturing gold in London, LeBron James suggested this could be it for him and the Olympics. He didn’t know if he would keep going. But after thinking about it for a week, he sounds like he’s in. LeBron was back in Akron doing charity events last weekend and spoke with the Associated Press:…

  13. FIBA head says no to under-23 Olympics basketball

    Aug 17, 2012, 8:33 PM EDT

    (From L) US centre Anthony Davis, US gua

    David Stern and the NBA owners are going to have a much tougher hill to climb to sell the idea of an under-23 Olympics tournament than they thought. They can’t just lock everyone out until they get their way this time. The players hate the idea and spoke out unanimously against it. Fans hate it…

  14. Bruce Bowen not sold Lakers will be better than Thunder

    Aug 17, 2012, 1:45 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Kevin Durant

    Finally, we have reached that time in August when we can definitively speculate on what teams will be playing like next May and June. Because we all nailed that Mavericks championship two years ago and got that Heat vs. Bulls Eastern Conference Finals we expected last year. On paper it does seem to be a…

  15. Kevin Durant is on Stephen Jackson’s rap album, so that’s a wrap on life as we know it

    Stephen Jackson loves to rap. He spent a lot of the lockout working on an album, and has a new one he expects to drop this month.But his guest star is what is likely to make some waves. It’s Kevin Durant. From XXL Magazine’s interview with Captain Jackson, via HoopsHype: You mentioned that KD is…

  17. Video: Durant, Harden on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

    Aug 14, 2012, 12:54 PM EDT

    James Harden and Kevin Durant of the USA

    Isn’t hipster James Harden hanging on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and the Roots the most James Harden thing he could do after the Olympics? He and Kevin Durant swung by the show Monday and didn’t look too hungover. Make sure to watch the second video, it has great stuff. Like Jimmy Fallon bringing up…

  18. Orlando admits what became obvious: It’s about the draft

    Aug 13, 2012, 1:41 PM EDT

    Rob Hennigan

    There are a lot of ways to question the ultimate decision that Orlando made in trading Dwight Howard. That has to start with, why didn’t you just do this at the trade deadline? I know you wanted to keep your superstar but everyone could see where this was headed, you needed to get out quick…

  19. Eleven guys who came out of London Olympics big winners

    Aug 13, 2012, 1:06 PM EDT

    US gold medalists LeBron James (R) and C

    The USA is the big winner in London — in our “winner take all” society they won the gold medal, they get the spoils. And no doubt they were the best team in the games. But a number of players came out of London as winners in the reputation game. Eric Freeman nailed a great…

  20. The Inbounds: Time for non-contenders to readjust their timelines

    Aug 13, 2012, 11:59 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. One thing that frustrates me about the NBA more than anything else is how small the list of title contenders…

  21. Kobe says he is done, but Carmelo might be up for Rio 2016

    Aug 13, 2012, 11:11 AM EDT

    US forward Carmelo Anthony celebrates af

    Kobe Bryant is telling anyone who asks, anyone who will listen really, that he is done with all things Olympics. There is no hesitation in comments to anyone. He’s got a second gold, he’s done. Which makes sense, he’ll be 37 come the Rio games and may not be playing in the NBA any more.…

  22. Chris Paul and subtle art of taking over a game

    Aug 13, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    Chris Paul is athletic, but not Derrick Rose or Russell Westbrook athletic where he can make a move that has your jaw drop like you’re in a Tex Avery cartoon. Chris Paul can shoot and score, but he’s not unstoppably pure like Kevin Durant or Ray Allen. Chris Paul did not put up a monster…

  23. Spain pushes USA, but too much LeBron, CP3, Durant makes USA golden

    Aug 12, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    US forward Kevin Durant and US forward L

    Spain had what they needed — spark plug Juan Carlos-Navarro couldn’t miss early and would not let the USA run away with the game. Pau Gasol took it right to the USA’s weakness in the second half and had 15 points in the third quarter to put his team ahead at one point. But the…

  24. LeBron James and a golden transformation

    Aug 12, 2012, 12:45 PM EDT

    Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Tyson Chandler

    A year ago, LeBron James didn’t exist. After mourning in his house over the loss of the NBA Finals for several weeks, dealing with the way his entire world had been turned upside down, how the public had revolted against him, James was simply absent. He rarely made appearances if ever at the NBA-NBPA meetings…

  25. USA vs. Spain for the gold: We know how this is going to end

    Aug 11, 2012, 2:21 PM EDT

    US forward Carmelo Anthony (R) celebrate

    USA vs. Spain for the gold: We know how this is going to end. USA gold. Spain has some real talent — Pau Gasol and Marc Gasol team up to make what would be the best front line in the NBA (well, maybe not anymore) and they surround the brothers with smart, playmaking guards who…
