The OKC Thunder—Yeah, The Thunder—Now Have The Most Expensive Roster In NBA History The OKC Thunder—Yeah, The Thunder—Now Have The Most Expensive Roster In NBA History

In an NBA offseason already filled with earth-shaking moves from the likes of LeBron James and DeMarcus Cousins, it was 34-year-old journeyman point guard Raymond Felton who truly pushed his team into uncharted territory when he resigned with the Thunder for one year and $2.4 million. On the heels of Paul George’s …

Paul George Farts On Potential Lakers Superteam, Returns To Oklahoma City Thunder Paul George Farts On Potential Lakers Superteam, Returns To Oklahoma City Thunder

Paul George took exactly zero meetings and wasted no time whatsoever before agreeing to a four-year max contract worth $137 million to stay with the Oklahoma City Thunder Sunday morning. This went down in a fun way: Russell Westbrook left a family vacation in Hawaii to fly back to Oklahoma City and host a party for…

Defiant, Moldering Melo, On Moving To The Bench: "That's Out Of The Question" Defiant, Moldering Melo, On Moving To The Bench: "That's Out Of The Question"

NBA exit interviews can be a hoot. Players are mostly fresh off a loss, and are feeling wistful or pissed off or utterly spent, and some use the occasion for a kind of honesty that might generally be inadvisable for public people. For example, John Wall used his to trash his team’s useless centers and shitty bench.…

The Thunder Were The Ugliest Version Of Themselves In Game 6 The Thunder Were The Ugliest Version Of Themselves In Game 6

The Utah Jazz dispatched the Oklahoma City Thunder Friday night, closing out the first round series with a narrow and vaguely controversial victory on Utah’s home floor behind more stout defense and just enough shot-making from their various role-players. Donovan Mitchell was fantastic, dropping in 38 points on 26…

Russell Westbrook Played Basketball And Stayed Alive Russell Westbrook Played Basketball And Stayed Alive

Once the Thunder were down 3-1, the Russell Westbrook obituaries had already begun to roll in; down 25, the eulogizers had probably started dipping their quills back in purple. What we’d already heard many times over was going to be repeated once again, at blaring, self-satisfied volume: You can’t win with Russell…

Russell Westbrook Brought The Thunder Back Russell Westbrook Brought The Thunder Back

The Thunder weren’t supposed to get this one. Down 3-1 in their first-round series against the Jazz, and down by as many as 25 points as late as the middle of the third quarter tonight, this elimination game felt pretty damn close to a foregone conclusion. Until it felt like something else—a ridiculous comeback,…

The Thunder Hit Rock Bottom, Where They Found A Gloating Mitt Romney The Thunder Hit Rock Bottom, Where They Found A Gloating Mitt Romney

If you want a tangible explanation for why the Oklahoma City Thunder are down 3-1 in their playoff series against the Jazz and seem destined for a first-round exit, take your pick: Rudy Gobert has effectively canceled out Russell Westbrook’s ability to drive to the hoop; Russell Westbrook has no jumper; it’s been six…

Grim And Gritty Ricky Rubio Has The Thunder On The Ropes Grim And Gritty Ricky Rubio Has The Thunder On The Ropes

It can be a little disorienting to remind yourself that grim and gritty Ricky Rubio, the veteran point guard of the Utah Jazz, has played exactly the same number of playoff games over the course of his NBA career as Donovan Mitchell has. Rubio, whose transformation from doe-eyed, baby-faced sidekick to leathery,…

The Thunder Are Being Shady About Steven Adams's Possibly Injured Arm The Thunder Are Being Shady About Steven Adams's Possibly Injured Arm

To refresh your memory, Steven Adams rammed in an alley-oop in Game 1 of the Thunder’s playoff series against the Jazz that made a satisfying thunk, but also rendered his right arm unusable. It just sort of hung there for awhile.

The Time Has Come For Carmelo Anthony To Hit Some Damn Shots The Time Has Come For Carmelo Anthony To Hit Some Damn Shots

For all the handwringing over Russell Westbrook’s stat-chasing and shot selection, and over Paul George’s occasional listlessness, an even bigger problem has spent the season lurking in Oklahoma City. A Melo problem.

Donovan Mitchell Isn't Wasting Any Time Donovan Mitchell Isn't Wasting Any Time

The Thunder won the first game in their series against the Jazz on Sunday, thanks in large part to the dominance of Paul George. But if you’re looking for someone in Utah with the ability to rise to George and Russell Westbrook’s level and keep this series competitive, look no further than rookie guard Donovan…

Steven Adams's Arm Seems To Have Survived This Dunk

Please turn up the volume on your computing device, and listen to the goddamn sound this Steven Adams alley-oop made.

Russell Westbrook Gets Another Triple-Double Season With An Appropriately Nuts Statline Russell Westbrook Gets Another Triple-Double Season With An Appropriately Nuts Statline

Russell Westbrook completed one of the greatest regular season achievements in NBA history tonight, becoming the first player ever to average a triple-double in two straight years. He didn’t make it very suspenseful either. Safe in points and assists but needing 16 boards, Westbrook went all out for rebounds against…

Russell Westbrook Says Shut Up About Stat-Padding Russell Westbrook Says Shut Up About Stat-Padding

Russell Westbrook needs 16 rebounds tonight against the Grizzlies in order to average a triple-double for the second straight season, which would be an unimpeachably impressive achievement.

Here's Everything At Stake On The Last Night Of The NBA Regular Season Here's Everything At Stake On The Last Night Of The NBA Regular Season

Tonight, anyone watching the NBA will get to see the closest possible regular-season equivalent of a play-in game when the Denver Nuggets travel to Minnesota to play the T-Wolves for the last playoff spot. Both clubs are 46-35, and Minnesota leads the season series 2-1, though a 100-96 win last week kept the Nuggets’…

The Universe Must Deliver A Rockets-Thunder Playoff Series The Universe Must Deliver A Rockets-Thunder Playoff Series

The Oklahoma City Thunder handed the Houston Rockets just their 7th home loss of the season Saturday night, by the relatively low score of 108-102. The Rockets were without Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson, but that’s not supposed to matter much—the Rockets had all of Chris Paul, James Harden, and Clint Capela in the…
