Oklahoma City Thunder Basketball
The NBA Draft is a little more than a month away, quietly creeping up on us while the league’s attention remains on the final four remaining teams. Who do the major sites have penciled in as the Thunder's three selections? Get the first look here.
For the fourth straight season, Thunder forward Kevin Durant was selected to the All-NBA first team, while point guard teammate Russell Westbrook was selected to the second team for the third straight year. Here's the details.
Durant did anything and everything he could to bring a smile to as many faces as possible. He shook hands and gave hugs. He posed for pictures and signed autographs.
Thunder Coach Scott Brooks, General Manager Sam Presti and players Russell Westbrook, Daniel Orton, Hasheem Thabeet and Thabo Sefolosha visited with tornado victims and first responders Wednesday morning in Moore and southwest Oklahoma City.
The Thunder got stuck with the No. 12 pick in the draft. There was every reason to believe this would be a much-higher pick, especially when Toronto got off to such a terrible start. But in the name of silver linings, here are a few things to digest:
Kevin Durant has donated $1 million to the American Red Cross for disaster relief, according to Red Cross Oklahoma. Durant on Monday encouraged his Twitter followers to text “REDCROSS” to 90999 for $10 donations to help tornado victims.
