OKC’s Kevin Durant decided to disrespect the crap out of Washington’s Marcin Gortat with a dunk so vicious, Gortat’s home country of Poland might even stand up and applaud KD.
Why you got to do him like that KD? Why?

Paul Pierce took a few friendly jabs at Russell Westbrook this weekend, mocking his “we executed” interview from Friday night.
