08:09 AM ET 10.17 | Among the rules emphasized by the NBA this season, one will certainly impact the Thunder. When pregame introductions have concluded, teams will have 90 seconds to return to the court for the opening tip. The previous two seasons, OKC players routinely kept officials and opponents waiting before the start of every game, sometimes a full minute or more. ... [On Tuesday, Kevin Durant] was in the middle of his on-court greetings with teammates when the ball was put in play. "I personally don't like it," Durant said of the 90-second rule. "Every player in this league has routines they do with their teammates, rituals they do before the game and before they walk on the floor. The fans like it. The fans enjoy it."
