Kevin Durant looked pretty reliable on Thursday night. The Oklahoma City Thunder star scored 36 points while facing elimination elimination game against the Memphis Grizzlies on the road. As a result, The Oklahoman decided to print a much more friendly headline in its Friday morning paper.
As you probably heard, The Oklahoman took a ton of heat on Thursday after they labeled Durant “Mr. Unreliable” in bold letters following the Thunder’s Game 5 loss. The sports editor of the paper later called the headline a failure and said it was misinterpreted.
If the insulting ink motivated Durant, Thunder fans should be grateful. He was just 0-for-6 from 3-point range and is still missing a lot of shots, but a win is a win. We know better than to count a player like Durant out no matter how cold he gets.
