- Report: Rajon Rondo to the OKC Thunder Is Possible September 12, 2014Rajon Rondo to the Oklahoma City Thunder seems like a pipe dream, but according to The Sporting News’ Sean Deveney, there’s a slight chance of the Boston Celtic heading west. Deveney discussed the scenario in on SB Nation’s CelticsBlog, via NESN: “The Thunder could be one to watch,” Deveney told Jeff Clark. “They have pieces to shed in a sign-and-trade, and a Russell Westbrook-Rondo backcourt would be fascinating. Might not work financially, but it’s a possibility.” Rondo leading the break with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook on the break. We can dream, can’t we?

- Report: Rajon Rondo, Russell Westbrook Backcourt ‘Fascinating’ Possibility September 12, 2014Where Rajon Rondo will end up is anyone’s guess. Sporting News’ Sean Deveney shared some insight on the subject, though, when he sat down this week with SB Nation’s CelticsBlog. Deveney touched on a number of Rondo topics during the interview, but one of his most interesting points was that prognosticators should not rule out teams that already have established point guards as potential suitors for the Boston Celtics star. “The Thunder could be one to watch,” Deveney said. “They have pieces to shed in a sign-and-trade, and a Russell Westbrook-Rondo backcourt would be fascinating. Might not work financially, but it’s a possibility. Charlotte has young pieces to offer and they’ve been slowly building toward making that one big move that pushes them to the next level.

Dallas has pursued pretty much any big-time free agent it can, I would assume they’d at least express interest.” Deveney also names Houston as a potential landing spot for ...
- Oklahoma City Thunder: Is Kevin Durant’s homecoming inevitable? September 11, 2014LeBron James made one thing abundantly clear during this offseason. He was coming home. When he announced via a letter in Sports Illustrated that he planned on returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers team he had publicly spurned four years earlier to form a power trio with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, Cavs fans that had once burned his jersey rejoiced. It was a crazy turnaround from the entire fan base, from owner Dan Gilbert to the youngest fan. But they deserved it. LeBron did everything right this time around and also admitted to the mistakes that he had made during his first stint as a free agent. This time around, he expressed that the only thing he wanted to do still in the NBA was bring a championship to his hometown team, the team that he grew up rooting for and was drafted by. If he is able to bring a title to Cleveland, it will be somewhat poetic. The comparisons to the prodigal son story in the Bible have already been made, so I won’t dwell on those. But his decision does have a profound eff

- OKC Thunder tickets preview for 2014-15 September 10, 2014The Oklahoma City Thunder are so close to an NBA title, they can taste it. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook once again led the Thunder into the fire last season, as the Thunder nearly reached their second NBA Finals series in three years. OKC ended up falling just short as the Spurs topped them and moved on to be crowned the champs, but Durant and co. are painfully close to closing that still existing small gap. As they look to take another step forward, OKC Thunder tickets naturally get a little more pricey. Let’s take a look at the five games that will cost the most for OKC in the upcoming 2014-15 NBA season, according to ticket data provided by Totally Tickets: OKC Thunder @ Cleveland Cavaliers (1/25/15) | Average Ticket Price: $750.94 | Get-in Price: $202 The Thunder’s most expensive game of the year comes when Kevin Durant and LeBron James face off in Cleveland.
