Usually when we post about Kevin Durant it’s a SportsCenter Top 10 play. This time, however, it’s more of a Not Top 10. Team USA took on Great Britain in Manchester, Thursday, as part of a series of exhibition games before the London Olympics. In the first quarter of the game, Kevin Durant drove the lane, as he so often does, and went up for what looked like an easy two point slam, but the ball just didn’t want to go in. Great Britain got the rebound and turned for the fast break when Kobe Bryant stole the ball and threw it back down court to Kevin for what seemed like another easy two points, but once again Kevin couldn’t finish and he ran down court laughing in disbelief.

Think your TV is badass? Sharp wants you to think again. The Japanese electronics company today introduced what it's calling the largest LED TV in the world: the 90-inch Aquas LED TV. Just how big is a 90-inch television? Huge: Four feet tall, eight feet wide, and six feet diagonally. And the 1080p set has a price tag to match. If you want one, you'll have to fork over $11,000. Though, if you have space in your crib for a TV that's wider than Kevin Durant is tall, you probably have the dough to cop one.

You know how they say that great athletes make difficult tasks "look easy"? Well, here's a perfect example of that. Driving to the hoop and slamming home a dunk in the fourth quarter of an NBA Finals game should never look this easy. And yet, Kevin Durant made it look like he was all alone in an empty gym when he drove to the hole against the Miami Heat last night and threw one down over Shane Battier.The Thunder lost 100-96. But, this was definitely a huge win for KD. Enjoy.
