It turns out Kevin Durant is unreliable at being unreliable. After being called out by The Oklahoman, KD hung 36 points and 10 rebounds in the win over the Memphis Grizzlies. If you want to pick nits, he was 0-for-6 from deep – but we’ll save that for some contrarian looking to make the next headline. This piece is all about the people.
Durant came out of the gates like somebody pumped a shot of adrenaline into his heart, and for the rest of the night “Mr. Unreliable” trended on Twitter. Here are some of the top takes following KD’s unreliably reliable evening.

SOURCES: Writer who labeled Kevin Durant “Mr. Unreliable” also called Tony Romo “Mr. Clutch” & Cleveland Browns “Super Bowl contenders”.

Calling one of the greatest players in the game “Mr. Unreliable” is just stupid! Without Durant, the Thunder is @NBA‘s “Mr. Inconsequential”

Now, if Durant truly is “Mr. Unreliable,” does that make Russell Westbrook “Mr. Habitually Inefficient?” – @BleacherReport

I’m not going to be able to stay awake through this #LACvsGSW game. Am I Mr. Unreliable, or are the game times not clutch?
