KEVIN DURANT: “I AM TAKING MY TALENTS TO THE BAY”

Kevin Durant has joined the one team in the Western conference that blocked him and OKC Thunder from playing the Cavs in this year’s NBA finals. Remember OKC was up 3-to-1 games before Steph Curry and the Warriors rallied back to defeat them. I guess if you can’t beat them, join them…? read story

Super Bowl 50

Each Super Bowl has it own epic story line or narrative. And this Super Bowl’s narrative does not disappoint.
