Oklahoman Editor Apologizes For "Mr. Unreliable" Headline On Durant

OKLAHOMAN Sports Editor Mike Sherman today on the paper's website pens an apology for a headline from this morning's edition that referred to Thunder F Kevin Durant as "Mr Unreliable." Sherman writes the headline "missed the mark," adding the "words were overstated and unduly harsh" (, 5/1). Thunder GM Sam Presti, referring to Durant's work on behalf of tornado victims, said, "What I witnessed from Kevin Durant on the streets of Moore, Oklahoma, a year ago is the absolute definition of reliability" (, 5/1).

ESPN's Marc Stein wrote on his Twitter feed, "Orlando Sentinel, fairly or unfairly, gets blamed for hastening @SHAQ exit in '96 w/ anti-Shaq poll. Oklahoman bound to get similar heat now."'s David Aldridge tweeted, "There are 29 other teams who would love to have an 'unreliable' player like Kevin Durant. No problem w/strong opinions,"'s Royce Young: "It should be noted: @BerryTramel's ... column very fair & spot on. Just the headline that's, eh." MSP Sports Founder Tim McGhee: "Apparently, the Oklahoman is the NY Post's Triple A club."
