Jeremy Lamb, SO CLUTCH. The Thunder were down 12 late in the fourth and stormed back to win something to something on a pretty Lamb step-back jumper with 6.3 seconds left. What a game! What a moment!
Here are five thoughts: Keep Reading…
Darnell Mayberry on Jeremy Lamb: “But it’ll be hard to contain excitement or disappointment for Jeremy Lamb. Most will be watching the second-year shooting guard with a keen eye. He was one of the five assets the Thunder received in the trade that sent James Harden to Houston. And with Kevin Martin set to sign with Minnesota, Lamb is expected to now be a larger part of the team’s plans this season. Is he ready? Summer league will provide our first indication. It will be Lamb’s first summer with the Thunder. He competed with the Rockets’ summer league team last year.”
Kevin Durant is signing a new long-term contract.
Wright, 25, plays for the Minnesota Lynx in the WNBA.
And in fact, she confirmed it herself Sunday evening:
Post-game Monica Wright confirmed reports that she and Kevin Durant are engaged. So there's that.

The couple hasn’t really been public with their relationship with Durant recently playing coy during an interview at a Lynx game about why he was there.
Just like Durant, Wright was selected No. 2 overall by the Lynx in 2010. And her name is the same as the main female character in “Love & Basketball.” Match. Made. In. Heaven.
The 2034 NBA draft just got really interesting.
When it comes to Summer League, always remember three simple rules and you’re set:
1) It doesn’t matter
2) Don’t get carried away with anything, either good or bad
3) Just enjoy watching some basketball, despite it often being horrific and unwatchable
Perry Jones not playing.
The Thunder take a pretty intriguing team to Orlando for a week, though. Perry Jones was a late scratch (replaced by Ryan Reid), but with Jeremy Lamb, Reggie Jackson, DeAndre Liggins and rookies Steven Adams and Andre Roberson, there’s definitely some curiosity to see what these guys are about right now.
So here are 10 things to watch for the Thunder’s Summer League: Keep Reading…
Happy Saturday. Thank you for your support of Daily Thunder. Yoooooo.
The best duo in the NBA. Still.
Perk on the new picks: “I love them. I think they got great potential. You can just see the upside in them. We gonna develop ‘em, and they’re going to come to our program, and they know it’s one way how we do it, and that’s just work hard, put our hard hats on, and sooner or later, they gone get the picture and learn. We just see everybody improving, you know, I was watching a play yesterday from Jeremy Lamb. He’s improved a ton. I mean he’s shooting the 3-ball like no other, so I’m planning on trying to go on down to Summer League for a day or two to watch them play. But I’m excited. The youth that we got in, you know, even the young guys that we got now better, so I’m waiting to just lead them and go forward.”
Kevin Pelton of ESPN.com in a 5-on-5 on Kevin Martin’s deal in Minnesota: “Bad deal. Martin will be effective offensively playing in Rick Adelman’s system, but the money is too big for a player on the wrong side of 30. In 2016-17, Martin will be making $7 million, and it’s hard to see him being able to defend anyone.” Keep Reading…
It’s Master Lock aka Mamba’s Nightmare aka Swiss Army Strife, Thabo Sefolosha. Would like to take this time to welcome you to ThaBro’s Fourth of July Country Jubilee & Gathering of Dopeness. It’s July 4th and, even though I hail from Switzerland, your boy knows a bit about how to celebrate the 4th. More specifically, I know about the country jams you need in your ears to maximize the funtivities experienced throughout Independence Day.
Essentially, the TFJCJGD is a forum for me to discuss my favorite country music tracks currently on the charts that you should have in heavy rotation at all your July 4th get-togethers. This ain’t GAC. This ain’t CMT. This is that realness, that trueness, and that piping hot rawness. Only the crispiest of jams make this list. I’ll bring to you a handful of my favorite joints. Five tunes that speak to me. Songs that exude heart, truth, heat, and some good ole fashioned redwhiteblueness. Keep Reading…
