WTLC Daily Loud Links: February 6, 2014

Here are your Thursday links!

Mornings after a Thunder win are just a lot better. You wake up energized and ready for the next game. Now, lets keep the excitement rolling as you read some of these links around the league.Especially WTLC's recap of last night's game.

We all know that Kevin Durant is a machine on the basketball court, but even machines have feelings. Durant had a special message sharpie'd on his shoe and it appears that it probably was related to a family friend of his who passed away. Our condolences!

It is now February and January players of the month were announced and guess what? Kevin Durant was named the Western Conference player of the month. What a surprise. Carmelo Anthony was the winner in the East thanks to his ridiculous 62-point performance.

Do you guys wanna know how bad the Cavaliers are? The Lakers ran out of healthy/eligible players and they were still able to beat Cleveland by 11 points. It was the weirdest situation I've ever seen.

Here's an entire recap of the situation by Yahoo! Ball Don't Lie. It's amazing.

LaMarcus Aldridge hit a decisive shot last night to take down the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, but right after he made the shot he mean mugged Spike Lee. Spike is the ultimate fan, but he trash talks opposing players more than the actual guys wearing the Knicks uniform. I wonder how many wins he's cost the Knicks throughout the years.

New commissioner Adam Silver made his first trip to an NBA Arena and it was to Sacramento. I guess we all know who the favorite to win the lottery is now, am I right?

Silver visited with Kings owner Vivek Ranadive on his first trip since taking over for David Stern on Saturday. He received a standing ovation from the sellout crowd for Sacramento's game against Toronto on Wednesday night.
