This upcoming season is likely to be a frustrating one for Russell Westbrook. It actually seems that the most important aspect of the team’s future success hinges on whether Westbrook can make it appear that he is fun to play with. I predict a lot of losing and getting frustrated with his teammates. This makes it seem unlikely that the Thunder will be successful in luring free agents.
I think it will be especially tough to get this team to be good as they have very poor perimeter shooting and are especially susceptible to an old school pack the paint defense.
