    The OKC Thunder's chemistry is at an all time high even at the summer league camp as Durant and Westbrook are there instead of chillaxing to support their teammates. Good things to come.

    Royal Ivey is my favorite crayon color.

    I'm not a fan of the OKC Thunder. I'm also not a fan of Kevin Durant. But, I have to admit, the young man is the kind of player I would love to have on my team. He's got such a great attitude, as this article demonstrates:
    Durant Aims for Golden Moment at World Championships - by Marc J. Spears, Yahoo! Sports, July 21, 2010

    ....”Hopefully, everything works out,” Kevin Durant said, ”and I make the team.”

    Three years into his NBA career, Durant still doesn’t lack for humility. Since his arrival as the No. 2 pick of the 2008 draft, he has insisted on being treated as just one of the guys. He has never yearned to play in a bigger market, instead signing a five-year, $87 million extension with the Oklahoma City Thunder this summer. True to form, he quietly announced the new contract on his Twitter account. Even after winning the NBA’s scoring title this past season, Durant chose to practice with the Thunder’s summer league team....

    ”It’s not one guy going out there and representing the U.S.,” Durant said on the first day of Team USA’s minicamp. ”That’s what I really like. Not one guy on that last team [was the face of the team]. Kobe Bryant wasn’t. LeBron James wasn’t. Everybody was equal.

    Outside of the locker room, everyone says I’m the face, which is really untrue. But once we step in between these lines and in these team meetings, I think everyone is equal. That’s a great feeling to have and a lot of pressure off my back as well.”

    Durant believes that, but at just 21 years old, he’s also now one of the five best players in the NBA...

    ”I’m not a champion like Lamar Odom or Chauncey Billups,” Durant said. ”I’m not a Finals MVP like Chauncey Billups. I haven’t played as many playoff games as some of the guys here. Those guys have one up on me. I just had the most points in the NBA. That’s all. It’s one year. That’s about it. I just want to learn from those guys and get better.

    ”Any day this can be taken away from me. I won’t take it for granted.”

    Durant hasn’t forgotten that just two years ago, he was turned down for a spot on the Beijing roster.

    ”I always wanted to be on the Olympic team and I always wanted to be a part of something like this no matter what,” Durant said. ”If I was a free agent and I didn’t get my deal done or whatever, I’d still be here. I just want to play the game and wanted USA across my chest.

    ”It would have been cool to see a lot of veterans here just to help us out a little bit. But it’s a new team and we’re looking forward to moving on.” During the 2008 Olympics, Jason Kidd’s role was to help bring leadership to a team loaded with young talent. But with Bryant, James and Wade already USA Basketball veterans, Kidd never had to be extremely vocal. Kidd is attending this week’s minicamp as a consultant, and he thinks Durant will only benefit from this summer’s experience...
    Aren't those great quotes? I don't think that's just lip service, either. I think he really believes what he's saying. What a great guy. How can you not like him?
    "I really like the attitudes of eagles. They never give up. When they grab a fish or something else, they never let it go. It doesn't matter. In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas

    Much respect to Durrant. I'm liking this guy, seriously.

    This is how Durant is on track to become the best player in the NBA.

    His humility, continuous hard work, and professionalism are all major factors why this kid really deserves alot of respect for what he has been able to do so far in his young career.
    I mean choosing to practice with his teams' summer league team is something unheard for an NBA super star with such a caliber.
    And had I not read this article I wouldn't have even known that Durant signed a contract extension

    I admire Kevin Durant he's willing to play for Team USA and follow the footsteps of his predecessors. The OKC Thunder is the tightest unit on the NBA.

    I was actually wishing the Thunders win in the play offs.
    Yup, they look pretty solid and should get back to the playoffs this season provided they are all healthy. Props to Durant for wanting to play for the US Team.

    The OKC Thunder are reportedly considering 3 players to be cut as to narrow down the lineup to 15.

    Byron Mullens
    DJ White
    Kyle Weaver

    My take: DJ White

    Oklahoma City Guard Russell Westbrook and teammate Kevin Durant are among the 15 man roster for the FIBA World Championships in Turkey.

    Oklahoma City Thunder Scott Brooks confirmed that recently acquired guard Daequan Cook has a chance to crack the lineup of the final 12.

    I think Cook will help the Thunder on his 3-point shooting. Cook is a catch-shoot guard and is most effective there.

    that's why i named this thread thunder rocks because i expect that this team will be a force in the west..they have a triumvirate of durant/westbrook/green and all these three players make it to the 15 man line up of the usa national team..with the additiion of cook they now have a outside threat plus the emergence of james harden and they have the size to compete in the west with collison,krstic,green,ibaka and aldrich.. the only downside of okc is there lack of experience in the playoffs

    They had a good showing against the Lakers, where LA fans were expecting a sweep but pushed the Lakers to 6 games. The experience was something and looks like they have nowhere to go but up.

    Cole Aldrich will add rebounding and toughness upfront for the OKC Thunder.

    Mo Peterson and Daequan Cook will add 3pt shooting.

    So far so good.

    IMO, i see OKC advancing into the 2nd round but not to Western Finals.

    Kevin Durant vs Dwight Howard for the MVP this year
    Russel Westbrook might win the Most Improve Player
