OKC Thunder: Scott Brooks more prepared for the All-Star game this time around

The Oklahoma City coach will allow himself to enjoy the weekend, instead of stressing about the small stuff.

And in seeing the best players in the world try to contain the Thunder's superstar, D'Antoni is convinced Durant can't be stopped.

“Nobody. I don't think anyone can,” D'Antoni said. “Because he plays within the game, he doesn't force anything. And the ball will eventually get to him. And at 6-11, leans back when he shoots. If he plays bad and has a bad game, it's because he played bad and had a bad game. It's not, ‘Oh, this guy shut him down.'”


Another day, another quote from LeBron James on Durant.

This time, in an interview with Bleacher Report, James said he doesn't believe the pressure for Durant to win a title will hit “until I retire.”

“But I don't know when he's gonna start hearing it,” James told the website. “I hope he doesn't. I don't think he should have to go through that. What he's been able to do for that city of Oklahoma City, what he's been able to do for his teammates is amazing. And we'll just see what happens with it.”

Durant is 25. James won his first title at 28.


Russell Westbrook is the newest pitchman for Subway.

The Thunder's injured All-Star guard spent part of his Thursday in Los Angeles, at a local Subway, making sandwiches to kick-start the partnership.

“Excited 2 be a part of the @Subway Famous Fan Family,” Westbrook tweeted.


The Thunder will begin the second half of the season next Thursday at home against Miami, an intriguing start to a six-game homestand that also includes the red-hot Clippers.
