KD & Chris Bosh with an exchange of words | NewsOk

Early into yesterday afternoon's game a hard foul on Harden led to a brief interchange between Kevin Durant and Chris Bosh, and a double-technical was assessed.  Bosh's explanation of the incident reads hilariously to me, mainly because I can't stop hearing it in my head as Dave Chappelle as Chuck Taylor -

"He was telling Harden to dunk on me," Bosh said. "He said dunk the next one. I expressed that, no, he’s not going to dunk that. And he expressed, yes he is. We just kind of went back and forth."

Durant also made some comments post-game, my favorite of which was-

"But it’s a lot of fake tough guys in this league and he’s one of them." 

Although, you could also make the case the Chris Bosh doesn't try that hard to act tough especially after his seemingly super-awkward Maxim Magazine photo-shoot (Highlights include: Will He Or Won't He Eat That Apple? and, of course, him splashing in the pool around the 3:13 mark).

Notes from the Heat/Thunder game | SLAM Online

SLAM's Todd Spehr with his thoughts throughout Sunday's game.

The fact that Oklahoma City are, it could very well be argued, one of the four marquee teams in the league from an interest and marketability standpoint is nothing short of amazing, just three years removed from relocation, and with an excitement generated mostly by things they are expected to do.
