Thunder notebook: Kevin Durant not looking to win MVP

Bobcats coach Larry Brown showered praise on the Thunder franchise before the start of Wednesday's game, complimenting the organization for accumulating high-character players.

"I look at (Durant) and some of our young guys in the NBA and I think our league's in pretty good shape," Brown said. "And this team (the Thunder) probably is a testimony to that. Look at their young kids. They're not only terrific talents, they're better kids. They've done the greatest job of bringing in good kids that represent the league well. When they're talking about respect for the game, that team's a poster child for that. So the West better watch out."


When asked if the Bobcats received free copies of the recently released video game NBA 2K11, which has owner Michael Jordan on the cover, Charlotte guard Sherron Collins said the players haven't gotten a copy yet. But Collins said he is hopeful.

"We haven't been back (home) yet," Collins said. "But I ain't go lie to you. I'm hoping I got a free copy in that locker room. They're probably sold out throughout the country."


Thabo Sefolosha did not make the trip to North Carolina after becoming ill Tuesday in Oklahoma City. James Harden started at shooting guard Wednesday night. Sefolosha could join the team today in Kansas City....Former Thunder guard Shaun Livingston (knee) was in uniform but did not play for the Bobcats on Wednesday. Former OU forward Eduardo Najera (hernia) was inactive and also did not play....As part of a premeditated plan by coach Scott Brooks, Durant did not play in the second half.
