Josh Huestis will spend his rookie season in the D-League

Mike Stobe/Getty Images   One of the most surprising picks of the 2014 NBA draft was the Oklahoma City Thunder taking Stanford small forward Josh Huestis at the end of the first round.

Kevin Durant the latest sports star to lose credibility by hanging with Justin Bieber (pic)

Sigh. That’s about all the emotional output that can be elicited in reaction to the photo that surfaced of Justin Bieber and Oklahoma Thunder superstar Kevin Durant hanging out, apparently during a brunch outing over the weekend.

Thunder expectations haven't changed

LAS VEGAS -- Oklahoma City general manager Sam Presti knows the last two years haven't gone as planned.

Thunder center Steven Adams wishes himself a happy birthday after everyone forgets

Happy Birthday, Steven Adams! The Oklahoma City Thunder center turned 21 on Sunday. To bad nobody remembered. At least, that's what Adams thought.

Westbrook has Jordan Brand collaboration with Barney's

Russell Westbrook is well-known for his, erhm, fearlessness when it comes to fashion. The Thunder point guard never fails to deliver when it comes to his wardrobe. So, it makes sense that Russell would be interested in creating his own clothing line and thanks to the fine folks at Jordan Brand and Barney’s, Westbrook can now say that he has his very own apparel.
