The Oklahoma City Thunder are off to an impressive start winning their first four games of the season. They are one of two undefeated teams left in the league. In light of that, Westbrook has a message for all those that have doubted the Thunder heading into this campaign.
Westbrook was asked about the expectation OKC would fall off some.
“Who said that?”
A lot of people.
“That’s where they went wrong.”

Westbrook has been the driving force for Oklahoma City through this strong start averaging a triple-double with a league-leading 37.8 points, 10.0 assists, and 10.5 rebounds per game. He has scored at least 32 points in each contest while registering a pair of triple-doubles. Westbrook has been playing at an elite level that is unmatched at this point in time.
His production will drop in due time, but the Thunder may be a better team than anticipated. Yes, they may have taken care of business against young and unproven teams such as Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns, and Los Angeles Lakers. It has set the table for what could be an MVP-caliber campaign for Westbrook and a far better playoff seeding.
