Report: Durant to Be Named NBA MVP

Report: Durant to Be Named NBA MVP | Kevin Durant HQ | Scoop.it
For the first time in three seasons, the King will be abdicating his MVP throne. As expected, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant will be named the 2013-14 NBA Most Valuable Player next week, ending LeBron James' two-year reign...
Evan Riggs's insight:

Kevin Durant absolutely deserves to be MVP this year. Without Durant playing out of his mind while Westbrook was out, the Thunder may be a 5 or 6 seed in the west. Instead, they are a 2 seed.

On the morning of a must-win Game 6 and days before he's expected to win the 2013-14 NBA MVP award, Kevin Durant is the subject of a front-page column in the Oklahoman headlined "Mr. Unreliable." W...
Evan Riggs's insight:

The "Mr. Unreliable" headline is the stupidest headline I have ever seen. Where would OKC be without KD? Thats not even a question. The lottery. KD carried the team to the number 2 seed in the best conference in NBA history! Also, does OKC realize that KD can leave in 2016? Use some common sense.

Kevin Durant isn'€™t playing like the league MVP in the worst playoff series of his career.

This article is a bit premature. The Thunder still have a great shot to advance in the playoffs. This bothers me, because right now this article comes across as just trying to get views.

Kevin Durant Says Tony Allen Not Locking Him Down - SLAMonline | Kevin Durant HQ | Scoop.it

I Kevin Durant Says Tony Allen Not Locking Him Down

Evan Riggs's insight:

Durant sounds annoyed with the idea that Tony Allen is shutting him down. After all, he is still averaging 34 points per game on 47 percent shooting. I think it will be interesting to see how this matchup plays out tomorrow night, because Durant does not usually get publicly frustrated about anything.

VIDEO: Kevin Durant draws up a play for Jeremy Lamb, admits he'd love to coach some day

VIDEO: Kevin Durant draws up a play for Jeremy Lamb, admits he'd love to coach some day | Kevin Durant HQ | Scoop.it
During a timeout with less than 90 seconds left on Friday night — a 116-94 Thunder blowout win over the Pelicans that was all but decided an hour earlier — Kevin Durant snatched the white board and drew up an offensive play.
Evan Riggs's insight:

I thought this was ironic, because Scott Brook's is known for not being a very good X's and O's guy. The article acknowledges that, saying "maybe Durant can draw up a play for himself in the playoffs."

Joey Crawford ices Kevin Durant at the free throw line

Joey Crawford ices Kevin Durant at the free throw line | Kevin Durant HQ | Scoop.it

Absolutely The groan-inducing NBA referee stopped the Oklahoma City Thunder forward between free throws to yell at the scorer's table, effectively icing Kevin Durant.

Evan Riggs's insight:

Absolutely ridiculous and completely unnecessary by Joey Crawford. The game should have gone into a second overtime.

I really liked this article. Basically, it says LeBron did not lose the MVP, Durant won it. Also, it goes on to say the increase in Durant's playmaking is because there is no more James Harden, and Russell Westbrook has missed almost half of the season.
