The Thunder Are More Fun To Watch With A Clear Cut Leader
To say OKC is a better team without Russell Westbrook is like saying Family Guy’s a better show without it’s talking dog, Brian. They knew what time it was and they brought his ass back. Westbrook is a top-10 talent in the league, but there are times when we can’t tell if he’s going in for kill or running the team. Without him, the team can only look to Durant in big moments. There’s no question of who to give the ball to down the stretch. No one else to worry about getting hot and no one else to dominate the ball.
Again, the Thunder have a better chance at winning with Westbrook paired on the floor with KD. However, Durant has no one to share the limelight with while he’s out. How much we enjoy that is our guilty pleasure.
