THUNDER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Westbrook mishaps lead to Thunder loss against Pelicans

If there are Russell Westbrook haters still out there among us, this game was for you. By now, such a person likely doesn't exist, but even the Westbrook supporters, and there are plenty of those around would admit Sunday wasn't much of a resume-builder for Westbrook.

VIDEO: Ed Davis records 18 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks vs. Thunder

With 11:24 left in the...

Audition Time for OKC’s New Generation

​ The Oklahoma City Thunder have been a playoff institution for so many years that their slow 3–9 start just might feel like the sky is falling for all of their fans.
