Now that the San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder are playing for a spot in the NBA Finals, it was the perfect time for one newspaper to have some fun with a headline.

Earlier this month, The Oklahoman dubbed Kevin Durant "Mr. Unreliable." 

The San Antonio Express-News put its own spin on that headline on Wednesday. Spurs big man Tim Duncan certainly got a lot more love from his hometown newspaper than KD got from his.

If Durant is able to lead the Thunder past San Antonio in this series, this headline battle could get even better.
