Kevin Durant Is Playing Like An MVP, But Is It Enough For Oklahoma City Thunder?

Durant's unselfish is a rare trait for a player of his caliber. Think about Carmelo Anthony -- another prodigious scorer, but one who needs to be a volume shooter, at all costs. At 26 years old, Durant will have a chance to become the game's all-time leading scorer, but he shoots it at such a high rate, we are left wondering why he isn't more aggressive. Would a more selfish Durant benefit a team that has yet to fully maximize its potential with a world championship?

Rest easy, Oklahoma City Thunder fans: Everything is going to be OK. For those of you who haven't paid attention, the Thunder has dropped three consecutive games since point guard Russell Westbrook returned from knee surgery. To be fair, two of those losses came at the hands of the Heat and Clippers. But OKC reached a new low Wednesday night when the NBA's second-best home team fell to lowly Cleveland, its third consecutive home defeat. We've got two questions here: What exactly is going on, and how can these issues be fixed?

In a new segment with Tara Petrolino of CineSport, I break down how and why Scott Brooks has been out-coached by Erik Spoelstra and, if it's too late for the Thunder to make another run in the Finals.

OKC has failed to eclipse the 100-point mark for the first time in back-to-back games since Games 2 and 3 of its conference semifinal series with the Lakers. Miami, in that span, has turned them over 25 times, scoring 29 transition points off of turnovers. But why and how?

Because of its remarkable floor spacing and ability to run non-traditional, high-ball screens for Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, their offense quite literally leaves OKC with a cadre of defensive choices, none of which are particularly good.
