Bestbrook tries to prove a point: Golden State Warriors vs. Oklahoma City Thunder
by Matt Cianfrone (@Matt_Cianfrone)- Hardwood Paroxysm
There is a good chance that Stephen Curry is the NBA’s MVP this season, especially if the Warriors finish with the best record in the NBA. Curry has lit just about everything on fire this season with his shooting and passing and the Warriors have been a juggernaut because of it.
Russell Westbrook meanwhile has been in and out of the lineup due to injuries, but when he has been on the floor he has been as good as any player in the league.
So if Westbrook helps the Thunder sneak into the playoffs this season and gets to go up against the potential MVP and the top seeded Warriors things may break. It would be amazing to watch Westbrook try to lead the Thunder to an upset victory and prove something to the rest of the league.
Combine that with Kevin Durant trying to free himself from the clutches of Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green and the fight that will surely ensue between Andrew Bogut and Steven Adams and we have the potential for an all-time great 1 vs. 8 matchup.
So let’s do this before Russell Westbrook hurts someone or something.
