CAMPUS CORNER — I was hoping someone would snap a pic of Cali Trio member Kenny Stills wearing a Thunder jersey today. Stills, being the good sport that he is, took it upon himself.
Stills lost a bet that his Lakers would beat the Thunder on Thursday night. As a result, Stills is wearing this Durant jersey on campus. The junior receiver’s caption with the photo: “Lost a bet … Sticking to my word.”
What a game last night. Thunder took off after that flurry to finish the first half. James Harden, already part owner of this city’s heart, took another chunk with his defense of – and fireside chatting with – Kobe Bryant. I loved it.
And what a first half of the season – 27-7. I’m fully swept up in it, already. Went to my first three games last week. I was already hooked – and then I saw the ultimate, Sunday night’s overtime win against Denver. One of the best regular-season games of any kind that I’ve seen. (Bonus: I wasn’t working.) Looking forward to the second half, though I’ll miss the week that includes the Clips, Wolves and Heat.
Maybe the Heat will be back in June?
