Kevin Durant's travel agent claims she secretly booked flights and hotel arrangements for "numerous women" on behalf of the "KD entourage" for years ... and all she got in return was a lawsuit. TMZ Sports has obtained a lawsuit Durant filed against Lynn Swanson back in September -- claiming she overcharged him by at least $500,000 for work she did from 2007 to 2012. But Swanson fired back in docs of her own, filed in March, claiming she earned every penny from KD -- by taking all of Kev's high-maintenance requests ... including late-night calls, last minute requests and confidential arrangements for special ladies.

Adidas went all in on Derrick Rose, giving him one of the more lucrative deals in the shoe business, but due to two seasons of injuries, they have failed to really capitalize on their investment. The D. Rose line has done OK in terms of sales, but given that Rose hasn’t played, adidas hasn’t exactly dominated the market as they hoped they would with Rose. Fortunately for adidas the Rose line has sold well both domestically and internationally, but it hasn’t been the runaway hits that the LeBron or Kevin Durant shoes have been. Basketball Insiders

Turns out that, since November, Durant has been working with Adam Harrington as his personal trainer beyond his daily duties with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Which is the same Adam Harrington who briefly played alongside Nowitzki with the Dallas Mavericks more than a decade ago and has been studying the unorthodox coaching techniques hatched by Nowitzki's longtime mentor and shot doctor from back home, Holger Geschwindner, ever since. "It's a lot more than just trying to copy the one-legger," Durant said, explaining that he's not merely focused on trying to mimic Nowitzki's signature shot. "Dirk's got a lot of moves I'm trying to steal." ESPN.com

Dirk, you see, is Durant's favorite active player. "It's probably a tie between him and Kobe," Durant said after giving it some extra thought. Yet there's no disputing who's the more natural role model for KD. It's that 35-year-old, that 7-footer, who plays three hours away down Interstate 35 ... and who just shot his way into the top 10 on the league's all-time scoring charts in his 16th season. You figure Durant will get there even faster at his current pace, given the insane levels of efficiency he's hitting -- sporting a PER of 30.2 for the season -- and blessed with that extra dose of athleticism Dirk has always dreamed of.

KD was asked about LeBron’s comments saying he’s pretty much the MVP: “As a player you love to have that respect from your peers, him being one of the greatest players to play. Very honored for guys to speak about me like that. Coach Rivers, Doc Rivers, I heard what he said about me last game and now LeBron. Just to have that respect from the guys you play against is more important than having respect from y’all right here.” DailyThunder.com

Durant's streak surpassed Jordan's 40 in a row of 25 or more and is the longest since Oscar Robertson did it for 46 straight games in 1963-64. Wilt Chamberlain did it in all 80 regular-season games in the 1961-62 season. And Durant is totally unimpressed by his streak. "I don't really care about it," he said. "I can't wait until it's over."
