Russell Westbrook’s Latest Knee Surgery Won’t Affect Oklahoma City Thunder’s Title Chances
The Oklahoma City Thunder received bad news on Tuesday when Russell Westbrook suffered a setback in his recovery from knee surgery. The speedy point guard had to have arthroscopic surgery on the same knee again to fix a loose stitch that was causing swelling, so now he’ll likely be out for the first month of the season. Now OKC will miss Westbrook, but let’s not go taking them out of title contention just yet.
Does this team need Westbrook to win a championship? Yes. Will losing him for another month help that cause? Absolutely not. But does that mean the Thunder can’t win the title this year? Heck no.
Westbrook needed more time to recover anyway because it would be better for him to come back later at 100 percent than to come back early and risk further injury. Folks around the NBA must be forgetting about a guy named Kevin Durant who plays in Oklahoma City, but just a quick reminder: he can get the Thunder to the playoffs by himself.
By the time the NBA playoffs roll around, everyone will have forgotten that Westbrook missed any time at all in 2013. The Thunder will be a top-four seed once again and have just as good of a shot at winning the Western Conference title as any other team. Everyone just chill about Westbrook, be patient for his return and watch Durant do his thing in the meantime.
