It was a very good week for basketball in the OKC. The Thunder were at home and won all three games. I’m sure there were some really good basketball-y type things that happened in those games but I was distracted during most of them.
I went to the Nuggets game on Monday with a friend and for most of the game we talked about how we were making the right adult decision by missing Justin Timberlake on Thursday and using the money on other things. Then on Thursday I was busy getting things ready for Royce to leave and also regretting my adult decision about missing JT. (There were tears.) And while I watched (most of) last night’s game it was a bit dull and okay I may have taken a nap during the third quarter. Regardless, here are this week’s Power Rankings.
1. Kevin Durant (last week: 2)
When you’re the reason Jay and Bey come to The Peake, you’re number one. Duh. Other than that, KD had a pretty great week. First of all, he posted a totes adorable pic of him and his mom (Know Yourself, y’all) on Instagram to start the week. He followed that up with a pic of himself (but not a selfie) standing in front of his restaurant that is not open yet and then a pic of a watch. He capped off the week with a pregame pic of himself in the bathroom. I sure hope that’s not his shower though considering it’s about 3 feet too low.
Oh, KD also remained good at basketball averaging 28 points and seven rebounds.
2. Russell Westbrook (last week: 3)
Even though Russ didn’t play in Sunday’s game against the Jazz, he posted this photo earlier in the week and immediately competed for the top spot. He was in the lead until Blue Ivy’s parents showed up and stole the show. Keep Reading…
