Russ returns to OKC and I don’t care
Maybe it needs a better title
Russ returns to OKC and I don’t care, this game should be about the Thunder not even losing a step after trading away Russell Westbrook and Paul George.
Russell Westbrook will make his official return to the Oklahoma City Thunder with his brand new team the Houston Rockets. Cool Story Bro!! The Thunder are 21-16 and sitting in the 7th seed led by veteran Chris Paul and sophomore Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Rockets are only ahead of the Thunder by 4.5 games and the excitement of these 2 teams meeting in the playoffs would be amazing.
This the 2nd meeting between this 2 teams, the Rockets lead the series thanks to a 40 point game by James Harden. Still the big highlight is Russ making his return and I don’t care for it. Credit to Russ for his great career with the Thunder that included 3 consecutive seasons of averaging a triple double. And now both Russ and the Thunder have moved on to bigger and better things.
Russ is now is 2nd in charge (**Cough Cough when Eric Gordon is not around) in a Rockets team that he can win with. Russ is shooting 23.5% on 3 pointers but still averaging 24.1 Ppg, Russ is doing well, I think. After leaving the Thunder he was called a cancer and so far with the Rockets that hasn’t come up. At the end of the day, Russ ain’t thinking about the good old’ Thunder days, he is thinking about getting past the 2nd round of the playoffs.
In my opinion, the Thunder won the trade they got plenty of draft picks and a young player with no ceiling in SGA. Seriously, SGA has no ceiling and Chris Paul role as a veteran deserves more credit that he is been given.
At the end of the day, people will come to the game to watch Russ make his return. But the people will stay to see SGA give the Rockets a challenge.
Well I really want the Thunder to win. They could do it, they’ll let Russ jack all the 3s that he wants and have Chris Paul unleashed some anger basketball at James Harden.
