Oklahoma City Thunder
By Jake Hagen
Do you like basketball? If so, what’s your favorite team? Mine is the Oklahoma City Thunder. I like them because they have my favorite player, Kevin Durant!
Everyone around the world has a favorite sports team. But the best is the Oklahoma City Thunder because they have Kevin Durant, Russel Westbrook, they did lose James Harden but still made it to the 2012 finals.
Kevin Durant plays small forward. He won scoring champion 2 years in a row. Kevin played on the Olympics USA basketball team helping them win the gold medal.
Russel Westbrook plays point guard for the Thunder. Playing point can be hard because there are a lot of good point guards and they’re the ones that call the plays. He also was on the USA team.
Losing James Harden
James Harden used to play shooting guard for the Thunder. Now plays shooting guard for the Rockets! The Thunder lost him in free agency. James was a big contribute to the Thunder. Because of this, the Thunder are not the best team in the west.
2012 NBA Finals
In 2012 the Thunder made it to the finals. One problem. So did the Miami Heat. The Heat won the finals 3 games to 1. The Thunder haven’t made it back to the finals yet.
The Thunder sure are a great team. Kevin Durant, Russel Westbrook, did lose James Harden but still made it to the 2012 NBA finals. Let’s hope they win the finals next year.
