Video of Kevin Durant signing autographs in MPLS

Superstar forward Kevin Durant is known as one of the nicest guys in the NBA. While in Minnesota, before boarding the Thunder team bus to the Target Center, here is original video of Durant signing autographs. This was taken outside of the Minneapolis Grand Hotel, on the same night Durant tied his career high with 47 points, in the Thunders' 118-117 OT victory over the Timberwolves.

Fans had been waiting outside in the cold and Durant didn't disappoint, as he signed for everyone.

Behind the scenes of the Heat & Cavs dual stay in LA

NBA fans owe a level of gratitude to the folks from Disney on Ice and the Ringling Brothers: Barnum & Bailey Circus. As a result of the respective scheduling efforts of these two organizations, LeBron James' former and current teams found themselves in Los Angeles via another unique scheduling quirk, this time involving LA's two local NBA franchises.

Manu Ginobili's interesting time outside LA hotel

While the previous story noted the speed at which Tony Parker and Gregg Popovich entered the Spurs team bus, prior to Wednesday's loss to the Clippers. The situation was completely opposite for shooting guard Manu Ginóbili on this night.  The Argentina native's route from the doors of the Shutters on the Beach Hotel in Santa Monica included a couple extended periods of stopping.

Wednesday, the San Antonio Spurs lost to the LA Clippers 90-85 at Staples Center.  When visiting Los Angeles, the team always stays in Santa Monica, this time lodging at the Shutters on the Beach Hotel.

Kobe Bryant High School Story & Photo

The following is a high school memory from Evan Monsky, a teammate of Kobe Bryant’s at Lower Merion from 1993-1995. While Kobe went on to stardom in the NBA, Evan was cut when he attempted to walk-on at the University of Maryland. Years later, Evan would redeem himself by leading the Milwaukee Bucks to the championship in NBA Live ’08 against former Terrapin Juan Dixon and the Portland Trailblazers. Evan currently writes a blog called TV My Wife Watches where he writes about just that.
