Kevin Durant likes his drive to games at Oracle, especially after he makes his way down the hill. Across MacArthur Boulevard. Past the McDonald’s in the Eastmont Town Center. All the way down 73rd Avenue. That’s when the drive feels like home. The fast food chains. The flea market. The grime. The kids running around in the street. Most people see this as the rough part of town they want to speed through. Durant soaks it in. “It reminds me so much of Chocolate City, man,” Durant said, using a nickname for his hometown of Washington, D.C. “I be missing home a lot. So when I ride down through East Oakland to go to the game, I get my fix. I definitely feel like I’m riding around in my own neighborhood.”

So there are potential trade partners for Kanter. However, you add in the political developments, and franchises will give pause. Do they want to take on the potential problem of a player who doesn’t even have a passport? Do they want to add a player who is the arch-enemy of a major international nation? What does that even mean? No one knows. Which hurts his trade value. You absolutely know what you’re getting with Enes Kanter the basketball player. Heck, you know what you’re getting with Enes Kanter the person. A friendly guy – friendliest player in Thunder history, I’d say – and a loyal teammate.
Current Bucks assistant general manager Justin Zanik will interview for the GM post and be given strong consideration to succeed Hammond, sources said. Zanik has been erroneously described in some corners as the Bucks GM-in-waiting, but sources insist he was never promised the position by the Bucks upon joining them from the Utah Jazz and will have to convince team officials he is the best choice to lead the franchise into the future.
The Bucks, sources said, want to take this opportunity to ensure the leadership they select can help the franchise take the next step after a promising season that saw Milwaukee — led by Antetokounmpo and his rise to All-Star status – reach the playoffs despite losing Jabari Parker to a season-ending knee injury.
