With a healthy Russell Westbrook, the Oklahoma City Thunder can win the NBA Finals


Despite dressing like a terrible clowns pocket, Russell Westbrook is an standout performer on the hardwood.

Kevin Durant expects fellow Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Russell Westbrook to be healthy when the season starts against the Jazz in Utah on October 30.

Suffering a slight tear in his right meniscus, the 24-year-old Westbrook underwent the knife on April 27 to repair the damaged knee.

After losing the dynamic three-time All-NBA Second Team selection, the powerful Thunder (60-22) fell to the Memphis Grizzlies in five games in the conference semifinals.

Averaging 19.9 points, 6.9 assists and 4.8 rebounds since being taken fourth overall out of UCLA, Westbrook is an elite athlete and spectacular playmaker.

Winning the Northwest Division title on three consecutive occasions, the Thunder is a team poised to soon capture the Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy.

Alongside Durant, rugged center Serge Ibaka and an overall solid supporting cast, a sturdy Westbrook is vital to Oklahoma City’s success.

Backed by the rowdiest home crowd in the association, a complete Thunder squad can dominate like the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs.

With an entirely healed Russell Westbrook, the Oklahoma City Thunder should again represent the Western Conference in the finals next June.
