Kevin Durant A Go For Game 5 No Real Shock!

Kevin Durant has been out of action for a month, but he is a go for Game 5 in Toronto. Did anyone really think he would not show up sometime in the series? Durant is a player that can make a huge difference when healthy. The real question is what can Durant give the Warriors at this point down 3-1.

Many people think he won't make much of a difference, but I'm not of that thinking at all. I think Kevin Durant will play alot better then people think. Is he enough to make a difference tonight? I say yes as the Warriors need one more scorer and we all know Durant can fill it up.

Playing in Toronto is perfect for Durant as he loves being the villain and hearing the boos. All that does is fuel his desire. Toss in Drake and this has to be a much-watched game tonight. No matter what happens the ratings should be sky high for Durant's return.

Kevin Durant Decides To Take Easy Route And Play For Golden State Warriors

Well I must admit I never thought Kevin Durant would leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and take the easy way out. In the years with the Thunder he would say how he loved playing for the fans and he loved the small town atmosphere in Oklahoma City. I guess that was really just talk, as he bolted for the Golden State Warriors. Was this  good move or one that kills his legacy as a player?

Many people keep saying it won't make a difference, but I have to disagree with that analogy. Going to Golden State is the easy way out and it will hurt his legacy. Lebron James legacy was not cemented until he came back to Cleveland and led  the team to the NBA Championship. Durant is going to a team that has already won a championship. His contribution will not be valued as much because Golden State was already the early favorite to win anyways.

Durant has disappointed a lot of people by his decision, but it will be one he must live with down the road. I think staying in Oklahoma would have been the best move, but only time will tell on that one. Russell Westbrook now becomes the man in OKC and they are still going to be a good team. Durant will be hated forever in OKC, but it was his choice and in my opinion not a wise one.

Kevin Durant Or Lebron James Who Is Frontrunner For NBA MVP

The NBA MVP race in my opinion is a dead heat. Many people have Kevin Durant ahead of Lebron James, but just as many have King James in the lead. Both players are having great seasons, but I think it could come down to how they both perform down the stretch. Most voters always look at how you finish not how you start. Another thing that must be considered is Kevin Durant has not one MVP yet either. Many times voters give a guy who has not won one the benefit of the doubt.

No matter who wins this battle the real winner our the fans. They get to watch to of the best basketball players on the planet. In the end I see Lebron James winning again. If Russell Westbrook did not come back Durant probably would will as he would need to do more for his team. No matter who wins this is a race that should be good.

Can Team USA Win Gold In London?

Team USA basketball are prepping for the Olympics and anything but Gold for them will be a bitter disappointment to them. It will be a nice challenge this Olympics for Team USA this year. Some of the players they were counting on could not come because of injuries. This does not mean that Team USA is not without talent as they have some of the best in the world. The interesting part is one of the most hated players in recent times Lebron James will hear cheers with every made basket.

In fact, I look for Lebron James to make this Olympics his own and carry Team USA. Over the last year James has learned a lot and matured after he left Cleveland. Now that he is a NBA Champion he seems poised to go to even greater heights. Kobe Bryant is another guy who could also make this Olympics special as it will be his last. He wants to go out on top and will not let Team USA fail in his last go around. This Olympics will be tough at times, but I see Team USA bringing home gold once again.

Can Lebron James Close The Deal In This NBA Finals?

Lebron James is one player whom has taken a lot of heat for his past failures. Some were warranted, but some were not. This year looks like he has a good chance to finally get that elusive NBA Championship that he has wanted. Can he close the deal this year in the NBA Finals? This could be the toughest test he has faced in his career in a long time. The Thunder have Kevin Durant and is a very deep team. The Heat have some talent as well, but no where the depth of the Thunder.

This NBA Finals will come down to James and how much can he can carry the Heat. Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh have their moments, but in the end it will come down to what James can do. Lebron James can control a game if he wants to and will needed to be called upon in this final few games. Without James playing his best I just do not see the Miami Heat winning it. The bad part for James if the Heat lose he will be the one who gets blame once again.

Dallas Mavericks Fall To 0-3 As Kevin Durant Beats Them At The Buzzer

The Dallas Mavericks finally played a decent game against a tough opponent, but it did not equal a win. After Vince Carter hit a three pointer with 1.4 seconds left to give the Mavs the lead Kevin Durant did his magic. Durant hit a three pointer as the buzzer went off to give the Thunder a 104-102 over the reeling Dallas Mavericks. It was a tough loss for the Mavericks to take, but one they will learn from that;s for sure.

Even though the Dallas Mavericks are 0-3 there should be no panic in Big D. People need to remember that the Dallas Mavericks are a different team, and do not have the same players when they won the NBA Championship. It is going to take some time to gel and find rotations that work for them. They will be fine as they have a lot of talent on the roster. They are also poised to grab some free agents in the future as they have cap space. Look for Dallas to get that win real soon and start improving game by game.

Kyrie Irving One Of A Kind Guy

  Kyrie Irving is one guy I cannot really figure out. He is very talented, but it seems he always has issues. When he was paired with Lebron...
