Indiana Pacers star forward Paul George has been traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to multiple reports. The Thunder gave up Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.
Russell Westbrook moved past Oscar Robertson and kept right on going to the top of the NBA.
With his sixth assist against the Phoenix Suns on Friday night, Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook became the first player since Oscar Robertson in 1961-62 to average a triple-double over an entire season.
Russell Westbrook re-upped with the Oklahoma City Thunder yesterday, redoing next year’s deal, guaranteeing 2017-18 and adding a third option year. He could still leave in the summer of ‘18 but, at least for now, he’s Oklahoma City’s favorite son. The mayor even declared it Russell Westbrook Day. The Lakers and Celtics will need to look elsewhere this summer for their respective saviors, and the Thunder won’t have to agonize over whether they could endure a second straight offseason of losing a superstar for nothing. Honestly? They never had anything to worry about.
It’s been almost a month now since Kevin Durant decided to leave the Thunder to sign with the Warriors, and Russell Westbrook is still yet to do an interview to talk about how he feels about KD leaving. It’s safe to say that he’s probably not real happy about it, but you would think the OKC star would have said something by now. He played with KD for almost a decade, so he must be feeling some type of way at the moment.
Kevin Durant, undoubtedly this offseason’s most sought after NBA free agent, has made his “decision” official. He posted a letter on The Players’ Tribune on Monday morning and announced he is leaving the Thunder and signing with the Warriors.
In a 336-minute, seven-game series, the Golden State Warriors needed less than 170 seconds in the third quarter to dismantle, dishearten and dispose of the Oklahoma City Thunder, doing what they do best and knocking down five treys in three minutes to earn their second consecutive berth in the NBA Finals with a 96-88 victory Monday night.
