Blueprint for Toppling Warriors in NBA Playoffs Not Easy but Is Possible

Kevin Durant's Extended Absence Leaves Russell Westbrook in Charge...for Good

bleacherreport.com — There's no way to know if Kevin Durant will be the same Kevin Durant the next time he graces an NBA court; at least some medical experts seem confident he will be, and since they know more about foot fractures and bone grafts than I do, I'll roll with their optimism.

bleacherreport.com — Getty Images/Melissa Majchrzak Once upon a time there was a talented young big man who made his way to Northern California. He came from a big-time college program and arrived, arguably, with a bigger presence than anyone or anything attached to the NBA team he was joining.
