Apparently, Melo, KD, Russ, Kobe, Bosh, & Wade@are partying now. #nbaplayoffs #repost from @jinnorufino instagram.com/p/1-E7afEACu/

Marc Stein

Jeff McDonald

Let's make a list of players who could plausibly guard LBJ and KD, and also could score 32 in a kind of huge playoff game. OK, I'm done.

Royce Young

Otto Porter has been pretty good this series. Wizards probably don't need Kevin Durant anymore.

Austin Burton

Prediction based on nothing solid: Kevin Durant signs with the Spurs in 2016.

Zach Lowe

Curry's shot was like a mix of KD's crazy 4-point play last season (w/o the obvious foul call) and the Ray Allen shot (Speights as Bosh).

Mike Wise

Guy You Want To Take Last Shot This Millennium: Kobe, Reggie, Billups, Horry, Ray Allen, DWade, DFish, Dirk, KD, 'Bron, Pierce and now Curry

Jorge Sierra

Greek Freak in poor man's KD mode.

Rob Peterson

Just tweeting out loud here: D'Antoni coaching KD and Russ. Yes? No?

Michael Scotto

Kevin Durant made a statement about the firing of his coach Scott Brooks from the Oklahoma City Thunder on Instagram. http://t.co/hD9ftzsBZK

Sean Highkin

Shout out to the fans arguing about whether NBA players use HGH in the comments of Kevin Durant's IG post about Brooks.

Royce Young

Kevin Durant comments on the Thunder firing Scott Brooks, saying he supports the decision "100 percent": instagram.com/p/1y1SyzTSuL/

Anthony Slater

Key part of the Kevin Durant statement: "I support our team's decision 100 percent"

Anthony Slater

Steve Kyler

338-207 (.620) and has Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook on speed dial? twitter.com/ReeseWallace/s…

Mike Tokito

So the coach of a team that was in NIT and another coach whose team couldn't even make NIT are top candidates to coach Kevin Durant?

Oklahoma City Fires Brooks, Puts a LeBron James Favorite at Top of List to Keep Kevin Durant in Town @Forbes onforb.es/1GjUPlI

Scott Brooks takes the fall as OKC sets its sights on keeping Kevin Durant. nydn.us/1G88dnB http://t.co/51qCNQJj1o

Thunder GM Sam Presti fires Scott Brooks, accepts full burden of Kevin Durant's 2016 decision on.si.com/1OfntsE http://t.co/mFjFNGzGR0

Kevin Pelton

The Thunder are operating with urgency ahead of Kevin Durant's free agency, and that cost Scott Brooks his job: es.pn/1DOA3Hi (In)

Mark Heisler

#Thunder fires Brooks hoping to keep #KevinDurant. Of course, it would have helped if they had kept #JamesHarden. onforb.es/1Gj5AC9

Mitch Lawrence

With Russell Westbrook's multiple knee surgeries and Kevin Durant's on-going foot problems, OKC Thunder needed a new MD, not a new coach.

Frank Isola

Berman of the Post is reporting that Charley Rosen said "Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka will thrive in Phil's triangle."

Adam Zagoria

"In what order would Kevin Durant rank the Kanye albums?" - Billy Donovan research

Frank Isola

I wonder if Kevin Durant will apologize for lashing out at the media during All Star Weekend for asking him about Scott Brooks' future.

Jeff Goodman

Always remember Kevin Durant gushing to me about Kevin Ollie when hired at UConn. Biggest key for Presti: keeping KD and Westbrook in OKC.

Sam Amick

Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook et al have trusted Presti before, and they'll have to here. Change was necessary to evolve, as OKC saw it.

Adam Zagoria

Kevin Durant on Kevin Ollie: “Kevin Ollie, he was a game-changer for us" zagsblog.com/articles/unoca…

David Aldridge

The NBA world now monitors @Kevin Durant for a response.

Vincent Goodwill

OKC is such an interesting situation right now. Do you consult KD on the hire? Or just flat out ask what his plans are next summer?

Brian Windhorst

Doesn't mean he's made a decision but recently Billy Donovan has done background research on Kevin Durant according to sources

Adam Zagoria

Obviously, with Kevin Durant poised to be a free agent in 2016, there is a lot riding on who OKC's next coach is. He clearly likes Ollie.

Trey Kerby

OKC job pros: KD/Russ/Ibaka, playing for titles immediately. OKC job cons: all of them could be gone in 2 years, have to win immediately.

Ohm Youngmisuk

How will Kevin Durant feel about this next summer? twitter.com/rachel__nichol…

Frank Isola

James Harden traded, Russell Westbrook three knee surgeries, Kevin Durant three foot surgeries....and the answer is firing Scott Brooks? Ok.

Jason Jones

So who wants to take the OKC job knowing they could lose Kevin Durant to free agency?

Jeff Caplan

After 2012 Finals loss to Miami, OKC lost Westbrook in '13 1st round, Ibaka in '14 West finals (1st 2 gms, wasn't same after) & KD this yr.

Tim Chisholm

A guy with Brooks' winning % will get hired again quickly, then he gets to show how much of what he did was b/c of KD and Russ.

Jeff Goodman

It's no secret that Sam Presti is a huge fan of Billy Donovan. Question is if Donovan would take it -- uncertain future of KD and Westbrook.

Jason Jones

Wonder what Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are thinking right now ...

Jorge Sierra

Worth noting: Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka (on HoopsHype) had all endorsed Scott Brooks as coach. shar.es/1p2lmU

Jeff Caplan

Brooks still managed to get OKC to 45 wins w KD playing 27, a whole mess of injuries and a virtual roster overhaul.

Mike Mazzeo

New coach gets Russ, KD post injury, Kanter, Ibaka, lotto pick and a lot of pressure to win right away twitter.com/royceyoung/sta…
