2018 Thunder Season Preview
Everyone felt a bit sorry for Russell Westbrook last year. His partner in crime bolts town, and for the rival at that. Westbrook is left in OKC with a decent supporting cast, but nothing at the level of Golden State, Houston, San Antonio or Utah. Everyone wrote the Thunder off and Westbrook in turn – went off. His individual performance did not get Oklahoma to the Finals, but now that Paul George and Carmelo Anthony is in town, that might change. Russell is clearly a Top 20 player, and so is George. Few teams can boast two on the same roster. Andre Roberson and Steven Adams will pull down lots of rebounds for Oklahoma City, and Patrick Patterson should help on the 3-point side of things. Coach Billy Donovan will need to ride Westbrook once again, but not as hard as last year. Expect the Thunder to finish 1st in the Northwest division and between 3 and 5 in the Western Conference. Any shot at finishing 2nd will be contingent on George having an MVP season. Not out of the question.
