Kevin Durant for MVP?

When talking about this season's potential MVP, the names that get the most mentions are probably Stephen Curry and LeBron James. And a dark horse that's been on the rise is Kawhi Leonard. All these three names deserve to be on the list, because they are the key players of the three best teams in the NBA: Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers, and San Antonio Spurs.

But personally, I think Kevin Durant deserves a look for the MVP spot.

KD has been a solid player throughout his entire career and although OKC may not be the best team in the Western Conference, Durant has carried his team to third place in a very competitive conference. Oh, and one more thing.
Kevin Durant has scored 20+ points in his last 42 of 43 games. In the last 30 seasons, only two other players have achieved this incredible feat. That's right.

LeBron James and Michael Jordan.


Basketball fans, what do you think Kevin Durant has a good chance of winning his second MVP this season?

I think if he wins the scoring title he would be impossible to ignore
@KyleBerke Yeah sucks OKC is in the Western Conference. If he played in the Eastern Conference, I feel like his name would be mentioned more.

I'm Ashamed of My Hometown
San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
LA Lakers VS. Oklahoma City Thunder Pregame Analysis/Prediction
The LA Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder face off once again after their bout on December 7, 2012. The teams are headed in two different directions, with the Lakers on their 5 game losing streak and the Thunder maintaining their supremacy in the West. Individual Leaders LAL OKC Points Bryant 30.5 Durant 28.2 Rebounds Howard 12.4 Ibaka 8.5 Assists Nash 8.8 Westbrook 8.6 Team Stats LAL OKC Scoring 103.2 105.4 Rebounding 45.4 43.1 Assists 21.6 21.7 Analysis: - In their last matchup in Oklahoma City, the Thunder and the Lakers were neck-and-neck in points, thanks to each team's superstars Westbrook and Howard. However, the Lakers just could not contain Westbrook's explosiveness into the lane and his shots from downtown, as seen from the last game's highlights. From the video, the Lakers definitely keep up with the Thunder's face-paced tempo, but they look exhausted by the second half, at which point the Thunder pull away for a large lead. Expect similar trends in the upcoming game, especially with the Lakers' aging superstars and injuries to several key players. Prediction: With both Gasol and Howard still out with injuries (not to mention their other big man, Jordan Hill), their defense will be utterly helpless. Kevin Durant should be able to dominate the game with his arsenal of offensive skills, draining jump shots and driving through lanes depleted of D12. Even if Earl Clark brings back his solid performance from his previous game, Serge Ibaka should dominate the paint with his defensive presence. The old Lakers squad cannot keep up with the fast-paced transition offense of the Thunder, and the quick, athletic Westbrook should be able to control the fast tempo of the game. Without their full squad, the Lakers stand no chance against the best of the West. LAL 95 - OKC 110. Check out other predictions for other key match-ups!

The 5 Strangest Superstition in Sports!
Hello sports fans! It's Friday the 13th! Here are some of the strangest superstitions in sports! Michael Jordan Michael always wore his UNC shorts under his NBA shorts. Thus, he wore longer shorts than his fellow players at that time. In the end however, his fellow players followed suit after the legend. Serena Williams Serena Williams is known for not changing socks once during a tournament. It sucks to wear a pair of socks for more than a day...imagine how it would feel to wear the same socks for an entire tournament! I guess Serena doesn't mind it considering the number of tournaments she has won. Brian Ulracher Brian Ulracher ate two chocolate chip cookies before every game. Maybe that was the secret to his muscular body. I think it'd be fair to call him the "Cookie Monster". Caron Butler Caron Butler was known to be an avid fan of Mountain Dew. He loved the drink so much that he drank before and during every game. During his UNC days, he asked his wife to pick him a 2-L bottle of the green stuff, and drank half of it before the game, and the rest during half-time. In 2007, the Wizards and NBA banned him from drinking it during games so he eventually quit the whole thing in 2009. Moises Alou This one has to be the most f*cked up one out of all of them. Moises Alou used to pee on his own hands to harden them! Should we see that as commitment to the game of baseball or just some pretty weird ass shit? Oh and by the way, don't try to harden your hands by peeing on them ladies and gentlemen, because doctors have confirmed that peeing on your hand doesn't harden them. It actually softens them. @jeff4122 @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @InPlainSight @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @salahabdalla @Moose892 @BrookieyElba @SamuelRodriguez @ValerieAlissaPa @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Jovi @Shippudenguy21 @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @Link4TW @ChriSingularis @sanazsanaz @WilliamBrown @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @TravisBeck @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @gatorchick96 @MatthewBoughton @MarcusJiles @BrandonMcNeil @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @manbungo2000 @DerekGumtow @havic @Straightshooter @PhilAnthony @Kirooken @yaakattackk @RodneyYoung @DreJones @JonathanKerns @bnzattoni @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @smothgreen @afxs @johnnolastname @ChristopherKenn @ChasePage @coreywriley91@MikeWolf @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @BrunoDutch @SherzTYC @krishntejanand @addri @ChrisStephens What was your favorite one from the list?
