Let’s just say I enjoyed Game One of the Finals A LOT and leave it at that. Ok?
NBA Finals: Kevin Durant Scores 36 to Power Thunder Past LeBron James’ Heat (from The Oklahoman)
There isn’t a ton to recap here, but just a really well-written game story. Love the lede. This might just be some journalist freak out, but I think it sets the tone for what Durant was up to last night.
Russell Westbrook: 11 Different Kinds of Smoke (from Hardwood Paroxysm)
Aka: Russell Westbrook: An Appreciation. Love this post because through game video from last night, it shows the things I love about Russell Westbrook. I will also add that I felt like he wasn’t even at his best last night. Especially early in the game, I felt like he was doing some weird stuff, but that’s Westbrook – you take the good with the bad. OKC wouldn’t have been able to pull off that game without him.

When I read this, I LOLed. Can’t get any higher praise than that. Big ups to Trey Kerby for the “swaggy adult” reference. I’ve been using it at home and it’s one of my favorite things ever.
