  • How the Thunder Are Winning the West – James Harden and Stopping the Pick n Roll

    Kevin Durant may have led the scoring for the Oklahoma City Thunder with 27 points; Manu Ginobili scored a game best 34 points. But it was James Harden who deserved the night’s MVP, leading the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 108-103 win over the San Antonio Spurs.

  • James Harden as a Cake

    James Harden isn’t just the best sixth man in the league and possibly the Thunder’s x-factor in their playoff series with the San Antonio Spurs, holding the key to the team’s title run in 2012. He’s somewhat of a fashion icon – the beard, the glasses, and now – James Harden, the cake. Harden gets […]

  • San Antonio Spurs, The Better Team in the Western Conference Finals

    Team Basketball beat individual ability; Old Guard beating New Guard. The San Antonio Spurs simply played better as a team, with Manu Ginobili stepping up to carry them when it got rough, while the Oklahoma City Thunder simply lost the game because they played like a group of guys with nothing in common but the jersey.

  • Manu Ginobili Produces Fourth Quarter Magic (Thunder vs Spurs)

    Manu Ginobili rested for two series, not needing to show off his brilliance too much during two sweeps. Down by 9, with Tony Parker struggling and Tim Duncan needing someone to create for him, Popovich turned to Ginobili, who came through with his best game in the 2012 NBA postseason, leading the Spurs to a 101-98 win over the Thunder in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

  • Thunder That Good; Lakers This Bad?

    No one was surprised that the Oklahoma City Thunder won Game 1, at home against the Los Angeles Lakers. But by 29 points? Without anything too special from Durant, Westbrook, Harden or anyone else? Is that really the gulf between the two teams.

  • James Harden Can Be the Hero for the Thunder Sometimes

    James Harden isn’t an All-Star like his two more prolific teammates, Westbrook and Durant, but his ability to score coming off the bench is just as important to the Thunder’s success. It was his scoring (29 points) that put his team back in the game, en route to a 103-97 win and a dominant sweep over the 2011 NBA Champions, the Dallas Mavericks.

  • Kevin Durant & James Harden Featuring Kate Upton in Skullcandy’s Take a Supermodel to Work

    Kevin Durant and James Harden should have been pleased to get a day to spend with Kate Upton, but as Skullcandy’s ‘Take a Supermodel to work’ video shows, even the hottest of models can make a few hours of training and practice quite annoying.

  • How Long Should Metta World Peace Be Suspended By the NBA?

    Metta World Peace, the player formerly known as Ron Artest, is in a place he knows all too well. With everyone wanting to see him suspended for a very long time for his hit on James Harden during the Lakers’ win over the Thunder on Sunday night.

  • Metta World Peace Elbows James Harden; Ejection Now, Suspension Later

    Metta World Peace or the player formerly known as Ron Artest actually went back to his Artest days, branding a great game of basketball between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder with a disgusting and impossible to understand elbow to the head of James Harden, which took Harden out of the game and got MWP ejected to an ignorant stadngin ovation.

  • Who Has the Better Big Three – The Oklahoma City Thunder or The Miami Heat

    The Thunder beating the Miami Heat sent the Heat into another bad loss against the Indiana Pacers, and the questions regarding their ability to win the NBA title is put into question once again. Having LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh put the Heat immediatly in contender territory for the second straight year. Having Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden? Took some time, but they’re finally there.
