Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

Kevin Garnett does not hear you calling him old (VIDEO)


If these new noise cancelling Beats by Dre headphones really can help you tune out Skip Bayless I may shell out for a pair.

This new ad for the headphones features Kevin Garnett tuning out his critics (be careful, a little NSFW language in there).

You need to suspend your belief in reality for this commercial to really work — the criticism of KG leaving for Brooklyn, even the current criticism of the Nets, is  not nearly that intense. Nobody is throwing eggs at him on a team bus coming into games. Also, when players get off a team bus at the arena they do not have to pass a gauntlet of angry fans yelling slurs at them. The NBA is not some European soccer match.

Still, nice headphones.

Hat tip to Rob Mahoney of The Point Forward at SI, who would throw eggs at KG if he got the chance.

Kevin Durant with huge dunk on visiting Fenerbahce Ulker

Welcome to America, Fenerbahce Ulker.

The Turkish powerhouse was in America playing some exhibition games this preseason, and they got a first-hand reminder that Kevin Durant is back. KD had 13 points in the Thunder’s easy 111-81 win.

Not to be outdone, Russell Westbrook got in on the act.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
