Some Fun Facts About Members of This Year’s OKC Thunder

by November 05, 2015

The Thunder have gotten off to a 3-1 start, with Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant are averaging 30.3 and 29.8 points, respectively. They’ve both had games of 40+ points. Quite an opening week. Maybe the Thunder are doing well because Nick Collison’s guilty pleasure song is pumping them up … or, more likely, Steven Adams’ guitar playing is helping them get their minds right.
