MEMPHIS, Tenn. – With the Thunder season on the line tonight, Kevin Durant isn’t fielding questions about how OKC can get a game 6 win.
He’s answering questions about a headline in The Oklahoman that simply reads “Mr. Unreliable.”
Durant’s mom, Wanda Pratt, took to twitter in his defense.
Typical Oklahoman on Kevin. UNBELIEVABLE!!
KEVIN is RELIABLE!!!—

Russell Westbrook simply said, “That’s B.S.”
Hear what Durant and Thunder Head Coach Scott Brooks had to say about the firestorm caused by the headline in this video.
Fans took to social media to show their support for Durant.
The Daily Oklahoman lost many readers today. I am so disappointed that they would give one of OUR boys the title of "Mr. Unreliable".—

Mr. Unreliable? Does anyone at the Oklahoman watch the games? You know he's gonna be MVP this year, right? We're talking about the same KD?—

Taking their support past social media, these signs from Lamar Advertising in Oklahoma City are starting to pop up.
