We all remember draft night and the vicious boos that Kristaps Porzingis heard from New York Knicks fans. Well, Porzingis has been nothing short of phenomenal thus far for New York, and is as polished as anyone could have hoped he would be at the young age of 20. Porzingis' epic put-back dunk against the Oklahoma City Thunder this evening proves how athletic and aware on the court he truly is.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been playing well this season, but why does that mean Kevin Durant should be traded sooner rather than later?
While I understand that Oklahoma City Thunder SF Kevin Durant is physically intimidating when driving the lane, the Charlotte Hornets should be ashamed of themselves for the defensive effort they put forth during this play. I mean, they didn't even try. The Hornets have made some solid strides this season, but boneheaded mental collapses like this will prevent them from continuing to build momentum.
Russell Westbrook has played at an MVP level this season, and makes 4-5 plays that are unbelievable on a nightly basis. His latest masterpiece will simply blow your mind.
The Kyle Singler contract was one of free agency's biggest question marks, and it looks more ridiculous now. The Thunder don't have a lot to complain about, but if they did it would be Singler.
Shabazz Muhammad doesn't make many highlight reels, but embarrassing Kevin Durant on this play undoubtedly gained the young Minnesota Timberwolves player some new fans this evening.
Many people believe Kevin Durant has taken a back seat to Russell Westbrook in terms of being a better player. This writer is not one of those people.
Kevin Durant was doing some sweet pregame handshakes, and then he saw the camera and couldn't contain himself.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been rolling in the first half of this season, and their performance grade acknowledges that.

Serge Ibaka apparently was convinced Kevin Durant had something to do with his missing water during a recent press conference, and was incredibly displeased about the situation.
