OKLAHOMA CITY (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) After losing Kevin Durant to the Golden State Warriors in free agency, the Oklahoma City Thunder say they’ll forfeit their games to Golden State Warriors during the upcoming season, and stay home. “Why travel halfway across the country to get blown out by 50 points?” said a despondent Russell Westbrook, Thunder guard and former Durant teammate. “They’re gonna win 82 games folks. 82-0. Mark my words. They won 73-9 without KD. I played with the dude, forget it man. Playing them is pointless. And I’ll tell you something, we won’t be the only team who refuses to play them.” (more…)

When the Warriors clinched the title and the celebration began, a thrilled Holiday was told he’d be allowed to partake in a portion of the festivities.
“I think he had a sip of champagne and touched the trophy for a second which was proportionate to his contribution,” said All-Star guard and league MVP, Steph Curry. “I suppose we’ll see him back in Oakland, that is if he can find a Greyhound near the Econo Lodge he’s staying at.” (more…)
OAKLAND (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) The Golden State Warriors defeaed the Houston Rockets 104-90 to advance to the NBA Finals. After having the game of his life on Monday night with 45 points, Houston Rockets star, James Harden had a night to forget Wednesday at the Oracle Arena. Thirteen turnovers, air balls, a crowd mockingly chanting his name, and 48 excruciating minutes or pure basketball torture later, Harden slowly meandered back to the sanctuary of his hotel room to begin the slow process of emotional healing. That’s when he was hit with the nail in the coffin — a room decked out in full Warriors blue and gold courtesy of Warriors star, and league MVP, Steph Curry. (more…)
