Despite the departure of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook will stay a Thunder
Yesterday morning (July 4), Kevin Durant made one of the biggest decisions he’s ever made in his career, let alone life. His decision to leave the city of Oklahoma behind, held much more deeper meaning than presumed. It was time for Durant’s personal growth and legacy as a person to keep benefits in life. However, his decision leaves behind his teammate, Russell Westbrook.
Shortly after Durant made his decision, GM Sam Presti communicated with Westbrook via text messages. It was decided, Westbrook would continue to hold down the rebuild of the OKC program.
“He’s a true leader that takes it on… And I think he’ll take this on as well,” Presti said.
Westbrook put up incredible numbers all season long last year, and that’s likely not to cease as he moves into next season.
23.5 per-game, 7.8 rebounds per-game, 10.4 assists per-game, are some pretty awesome numbers that Westbrook put up last year. Westbrook is in the last year of his contract. What the season after the forthcoming one looks like for OKC, that’s not of a concern at the moment.
“We’ve always shown we’re not going to be deterred. We’re going to continue to advance.”
