OKC Loud Links: Are the Champs Staggering?

The question on everyone's minds now is this - what does Dallas have left in the tank? I am always hesitant to presume anything, but the facts are apparent: no team has ever recovered from a 3-0 deficit, and the Thunder have not lost 4 games in a row since they were a bad team in the 2008-09 season.

SB Nation Encounters Kate Upton | SB Nation

In the wake of the awesome Skullcandy commercial featuring Durant, Harden, and Kate Upton, we have footage of SB Nation's very own Matt Ufford losing his grip on reality as he encounters the Sports Illustrated cover girl.
