Oklahoma City Thunder play in the NBA and are playing really well. The Thunder have two all star players Paul George and Russel Westbrook. They have a lot of help on their team. For example they have Steven Adams who is around 7 feet tall and plays the center position. This allows him to get easy points and blocks and rebounds. Russel Westbrook averages 21.1 points and 10.1 assist. He leads the NBA in most assist averaging. Paul George averages 26.8 points and 2.2 steals. Paul George leads the whole NBA in steals. So, you can say that the Thunder are a really good defensive team which is really important. That is really important because if you have good defense then the opponent wot be able to score easily. Steven Adams averages 15.2 points and 10.2 rebounds and he is one of the top rebound leaders.

The Thunder are 3rd place in the western conference with 25 wins and 14 losses. The Thunder are trailing to the Warriors by one win and they are trailing to the number one seed in the NBA and the western conference the Nuggets with 26 wins and 12 losses. This s crazy because the Nuggets went from being the one of the worst teams in the NBA to now an outstanding team. Russel Westbrook won the NBA MVP or most valuable player award in 2016-17 NBA season. He won that ward because he broke the record for averaging a triple double every single game. Basically a triple double is when you get two digit stats for 3 different stats. Russel Westbrook also averaged a triple double in the next season but got beat for the MVP award by James Harden.

The Thunder use to have an amazing team with Russel Westbrook, Kevin Durant, and James Harden. At this time James Harden was not that great. But however, he won the six man of the year award. The six man of the year ward means that they were the best player to come off of the bench. Then James Harden left to join the Houston Rockets to start his own legacy and that is exactly what he did and now he just one the MVP award and is now the top candidate for the MVP award and there is a chance he will get it back to back times.

Kevin Durant decided to stick with the team. The team got new teammates and it was time for them to face the Golden State Warriors in the second round of the playoffs. The Thunder were winning in a series to 7. The Thunder were winning 3-1 which means they need one more game to win and advance to the finals. But the Warriors came out winning with a huge comeback.

The next year Kevin Durant joined the Warriors because he wanted a championship really badly. A lot of NBA fans hated this decision because it would make the Warriors unstoppable. The Thunder fans were even more so now the NBA call him a “snake” for what he did. Then the warriors became unstoppable.
