By Connor MacKenzie @grandepadre94 written on March 19th The Oklahoma City Thunder are in a funk, there is no doubt about it. They are 5-9 since the all star break with 11 games remaining. Their defense has regressed, but has shown great flashes in limiting prolific scoring teams such as holding Utah 89 points, and the likes of Indiana to 108.

NBA insider Adrian “Woj” Wojnarowski reported, earlier today, that Kevin Durant plans to be in Chesapeake Arena for the retirement of Nick Collison’s jersey. Durant should stay far away from Oklahoma City, especially on Collison’s special night. Collison incomparably served the Thunder, (and the Seattle SuperSonics) for his whole career.

It hurts my soul in the good way that makes me want to watch him play more and more. I feel like Leonard and Gregg Popovich don’t actually speak to each other. They probably communicate through a … Continue reading Should We Make A Trade?
