Championship or Bust for Oklahoma City Thunder

Durant and WestbrookMany people, myself included, believe the Oklahoma City Thunder would have represented the Western Conference in the NBA Finals last season if Russell Westbrook wouldn’t have suffered a torn meniscus. As it was, the Thunder failed to get past the Dallas Mavericks in the second round of the playoffs.

Entering the 2013-14 season, Westbrook is believed to be healthy and the Thunder once again have championship aspirations.

Don’t get me wrong:  OKC is still a very young team. Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka are all under 25-years-old. However, all three of them should now have enough postseason experience to win a championship for Oklahoma City.

The Western Conference won’t be as easy for the Thunder to win as it was last season; Doc Rivers is now in charge of the Los Angeles Clippers and Dwight Howard will likely make the Houston Rockets a hard team for anyone to beat.  With that said, Durant and Westbrook still form the best duo in the NBA.
