    We’ve told you that Kevin Durant is going to be a movie star. Clooney-like. He’s going to the big screen in a major motion picture. And they will not be filming much of that in Oklahoma City now. Thanks a lot lockout. The Oklahoman spells it out. This is an economic hit to OKC —…

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Seven

    Kevin Durant is not the kind of athlete who ends up on TMZ as he is hopping from club-to-club or trying to line up his next reality show. That’s just not who Durant is. He’s more the “wear a backpack to a press conference” kind of guy. Yet he still got in trouble via TMZ…

    Lest you think the people of Seattle have forgotten, they have not. Oh, they have learned to live with the Sonics leaving for Oklahoma City, with owners who betrayed them. But don’t think they are over it. For example, the former Sonics mascot “Squatch” walked around Portland’s Rose Garden — with a “homeless” sign —…

    Dear reader, I apologize for this in advance, but forces beyond my control compel me to do this. I wish I could show you something less frightening, like the spiderwalk scene in the Exorcist. Or Betty White naked. But I cannot. The Lakers are staying in the legendary haunted hotel in Oklahoma City. But there…
