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.
Otto Porter has been pretty good this series. Wizards probably don't need Kevin Durant anymore.
Prediction based on nothing solid: Kevin Durant signs with the Spurs in 2016.
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).
Guy You Want To Take Last Shot This Millennium: Kobe, Reggie, Billups, Horry, Ray Allen, DWade, DFish, Dirk, KD, 'Bron, Pierce and now Curry
Greek Freak in poor man's KD mode.
Just tweeting out loud here: D'Antoni coaching KD and Russ. Yes? No?
Kevin Durant responds to Scott Brooks firing on Instagram --- http://t.co/9csEGUROQm
Kevin Durant made a statement about the firing of his coach Scott Brooks from the Oklahoma City Thunder on Instagram. http://t.co/hD9ftzsBZK
Shout out to the fans arguing about whether NBA players use HGH in the comments of Kevin Durant's IG post about Brooks.
Kevin Durant says he "100 percent" supports OKC's decision to fire Brooks and looks forward to the future in OKC - http://t.co/h2NZKncDh8
Key part of the Kevin Durant statement: "I support our team's decision 100 percent"
Kevin Durant issues a 'Thank you Scotty' statement on Instagram http://t.co/5t9cpzmDhL
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?

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.
Berman of the Post is reporting that Charley Rosen said "Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka will thrive in Phil's triangle."
"In what order would Kevin Durant rank the Kanye albums?" - Billy Donovan research
I wonder if Kevin Durant will apologize for lashing out at the media during All Star Weekend for asking him about Scott Brooks' future.
Always remember Kevin Durant gushing to me about Kevin Ollie when hired at UConn. Biggest key for Presti: keeping KD and Westbrook in OKC.
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.
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?
Doesn't mean he's made a decision but recently Billy Donovan has done background research on Kevin Durant according to sources
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.
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.
James Harden traded, Russell Westbrook three knee surgeries, Kevin Durant three foot surgeries....and the answer is firing Scott Brooks? Ok.
So who wants to take the OKC job knowing they could lose Kevin Durant to free agency?
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.
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.
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.
Wonder what Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are thinking right now ...
Brooks still managed to get OKC to 45 wins w KD playing 27, a whole mess of injuries and a virtual roster overhaul.
