NBA playoffs: Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook geek chic winners

Two guys who look like a couple of study-hall escapees led the Oklahoma City Thunder to a Game 7 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday.

Apart from the 39 points from Kevin Durant and the triple-double by Russell Westbrook and wondering if the Thunder just might be on the verge of something, even against big, bad Dallas, all you could think during the postgame presser was “geek chic is back.” (Or, as PTIShow puts it, you can’t spell Thunder without N-E-R-D.)

Just what is in KD’s omnipresent backpack? Lots of phone chargers. A guy can’t have enough of those.
