Before the release of their next issue, DimeMag graced us with a behind the scenes look at their last cover shoot with Oklahoma City Thunder duo Kevin Durant and Russel Westbrook. Check it out.
Is this really what we are up in arms over? What about him said, “Thou shalt not have any permanent ink separate from Sharpie on the body”? I understand wholeheartedly that Kevin Durant does close to nothing to incorporate his tattoos into his personality. His clean-cut image comes fully equipped with the university backpack and on occasion the nerd glasses. No one expects someone well-behaved to have body ink. Well, maybe this is a step in the right direction. Maybe now people understand that you do not have to look like a bandit or have multiple piercings in every vital organ to have tattoos.
On the other hand, what Durant is doing may be no different than what professional businessmen and women do every day of their lives. Wanting to take a walk on the wide side, Tom, Dick, Harry or Jane may stop by your nearest body art shop and want some work done. It has nothing to do with how you should perceive them as a person it is just what they desire. But, then they realize that they are working in a business that either frowns upon the body art or they will be put in a degrading category. So, what to do? Put the tattoos somewhere they can be covered at all times in front of their employer and only shown at their discretion. Continue reading Kevin Durant is Tatted Who Would Have Thought? [Pics]
There was never a doubt in my mind that the players of the NBA would not take long to find something to do with all their free time since the lockout seems more and more like a lost cause every day. However, it does surprise me that one of the youngest men in the league is planning the most interesting event that I have seen thus far. Kevin Durant has a maturity level far above many of his peers, so maybe it should not come as a shocker that he is the mastermind behind a possible tournament between the Goodman League of DC and the Drew League on the West Coast.

I love fans and the crazy things they do. This Oklahoma City fan has given me a whole new outlook on the term “Thunder thighs”.
This crazed fan has the OKC Thunder logo tatted on the outside of her thighs and she records a video getting the phrases “Rise Together” and “Thunder up” between her thighs, the chants during the the 2011 Playoffs.
Somebody give this woman the job as a towel girl!
Kevin Durant is holding a Skills Academy with the best high school players in the country and talking to them about what it takes to reach the next level.

The NBA’s leading scorer and OKC’s talented star player Kevin Durant has been out and about in LA and was recently spotted hanging out with Dodgers’ player Matt Kemp, who might I say
was linked to my girlfriend in my mind Rihanna earlier this year. KD seems to be enjoying his summer in L.A. (who wouldn’t) as he was spotted eating at Katsuya and is rumored to be on the court this afternoon at the Drew League. Continue reading Kevin Durant Hangs Out In LA With Dodgers' Matt Kemp
Oklahoma City Thunder led the entire game last night in a game 4 attempt to tie the series at home. Up by 15 with less than 5 minutes remaining in the game, fans and spectators would have agreed that OKC had the game in the bag. But then again in basketball, anything is possible and with the vets on Dallas focused to keep the lead in the series, and Harden fouled out, the Mavs went on a 16-2 run to tie the game.
Tied at 101, Durant made the attempt to capture the win with a 3 pointer in which he was denied by the remarkable defense of Shawn Marion. Dallas went on to win the game in overtime, now leading the series 3-1.
Attacking Russell Westbrook is the easiest to do because he is the only player being criticized when you turn on the television. He deserves a bit of it. Westbrook lacks the true point guard skills that will take his position play to the next level. What people are not taking into account is that he never played the position before. Although there may be spurts of excellence, he is still becoming acclimated to his role next to Kevin Durant.
But, critics are wrong in saying that he should not shoot or penetrate much. Penetration is his strength. He is usually the most athletic man on the floor and when he sees a mismatch he takes continuous advantage of it. Poor shot selection comes with the NBA territory. There are times when even Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose and LeBron James choose their spots on the floor without putting much thought behind it. Continue reading Russell Westbrook Isn’t Oklahoma City’s Biggest Issue
If you were busy and missed the 1st and 10 show with Rapper Fabolous and Fab 5 Jalen Rose, I have the video. I died laughing when Mike Hill quoted one of Fabs raps and watch on as Fab goes on to call Skip Bayless a hater. Do you think Fabolous knows what he’s talking about? Watch the video after the break. Continue reading Video: Rapper Fabolous and Jalen Rose Join Skip Bayless to Debate on 1st And 10
