Crook speaks. . .
One of the most under-performing teams last year, was the Oklahoma City Thunder – who lost in a shocking 1st round series to the Utah Jazz. Since getting rid of Carmelo Anthony, the team has bulked up role players in the likes of Dennis Schroder (most underrated signing) and Nerlens Noel; as well as the return of Andre Roberson, who missed a large portion of their season.
After inking Paul George to a max-contract and the two getting adjusted to each other’s styles, Russell Westbrook believes the team will win an NBA Championship. This looks to be his only mission heading forward, which we’re assuming the triple-double chase has officially ended. So, with hof stats under his belt, the soon-to-be 30-year-old has matured and wants to get to the big stage.
Let us know in the comments below what you think of OKC’s chances in the crowded west.
