The report that Kevin Durant told Russell Westbrook he’d re-sign with the Thunder before choosing the Warriors? Never mind. Royce Young of ESPN: I misspoke in saying that Durant specifically told Westbrook he was coming back.
When Amar’e Stoudemire retired, I said history will treat him better than present-day analysis — maybe even to the point he gets legitimate Hall of Fame consideration. Get past Stoudemire’s injury-caused decline with the Knicks and his wayward years with the Mavericks and Heat, and Stoudemire was a heck of a player with the Suns (and in his first year in New York). Thanks to the NBA, the process of remembering Stoudemire for his peak can begin immediately. I was blown away by the first few highlights before realizing they were just the introduction for the top 10.
