Here are your daily links!

After a shaky week, the Thunder hit the court again on Tuesday against the Grizzlies, but before then, here are your daily links!

This is a fantastic piece by Anthony Slater on Steven Adams and why his toughness reflects his background.

"Have you seen my sister?" Adams said, when asked about his ability to take a beating. "Look her up, bro."

At 6-foot-4, 260 pounds - weighing more than Carter, Sanders, Serge Ibaka and 90 percent of all other NBA players - Valerie is a supreme athlete. She won Olympic gold for the shot put in 2008 and 2012. And, with a streak that dates back to 2007, she became the first woman in history to win four consecutive individual titles at the world track and field championships, regardless of event.

Marc Stein released his weekly Power Rankings on ESPN. Where do the Thunder stand?

Kevin Durant's numbers in these past nine games since Russell Westbrook's latest knee surgery are only getting more insane: 34.2 PPG, 8.6 RPG and 5.4 APG. But the Thunder are a mortal 5-4 in that stretch and certainly don't want to keep asking KD to do that much night after night. Do they?

Mark Cuban has never been a shy guy, to say the least, and that continued when they asked him about his feelings toward the Miami Heat. I just wanna say: I feel you, Mark. I feel you.

"Hate's a strong word, but it's probably not strong enough," Cuban said of how he feels about the Heat.

I really love the internet, but especially when they do things like this. The "LeBroning" videos have taken over and they're perfect. Check out the best ones.

I live in Miami, and no, I wasn't invited to Dwyane Wade's birthday party but it was sort of amazing. Here are some of the pictures he uploaded into instagram. Happy Birthday, Dwyane.
