The Oklahoma City Thunder lost again Friday night. It was another winnable game, against a team (Brooklyn Nets) that, if the season ended today, wouldn’t even be in the EASTERN Conference playoffs.

Will The OKC Thunder Make The Playoffs?

(Russell Westbrook & Kevin Durant by Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports)   This just hit me today when I was going through last night’s NBA boxscores – the Oklahoma City Thunder might not make the playoffs this year.  Which is crazy talk, considering they were one of the title favourites heading into the season.  The wheels fell off, of course, when Kevin Durant got injured...

Audition Time for OKC’s New Generation

​ The Oklahoma City Thunder have been a playoff institution for so many years that their slow 3–9 start just might feel like the sky is falling for all of their fans. While medium-term injuries for both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are a surefire way for any team to take a little tumble down the standings, I think the Thunder are so far below .500 because of the massive...

Do the Rockets have a defense?

While Kevin Durant was yelling obscenities at Dwight Howard, the Thunder and the Rockets were engaged in an intriguing and ugly game of basketball. A 69-65 win for the Rockets does not quite fit the Rockets’ storyline. This is a team with tons of offensive potential and little in the way of defense. The story on Houston is that James Harden cares only about offense and Dwight...

Report: Kevin Durant repeatedly called Dwight Howard a 'p---y'

The Houston Rockets’ 69-65 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday was obviously an ugly affair, as the final score abundantly illustrates. Given that both teams were apparently incapable of putting the ball in the hoop, for whatever reason, it nonetheless wasn’t the prettiest display of basketball. But the ugliness, according to one account,...Read More The post Report...

Prices for Thunder tickets are tanking, even if the team isn’t

The Oklahoma City Thunder are not where they expected to be at this point in the season. Oklahoma City is treading water until they can get Kevin Durant (fractured right foot) and Russell Westbrook (broken right hand) back in the lineup.

Should the Oklahoma City Thunder Tank This Season?

Success in the NBA is no different than experiencing success anywhere else. In order to sustain the high of winning, it is required to trudge through the depths of defeat. Deep, huh?
