Russell Westbrook’s season came to an end with a 105-99 loss to the Houston Rockets, giving the Rockets a 4-1 series victory. None of that will diminish Westbrook’s accomplishments this season.
With the departure of Kevin Durant, Westbrook was on a mission all season. While some will argue the one-man show in Oklahoma City won’t work — and certainly, their quick departure from the playoffs speaks to that — it won’t diminish one of the more memorable seasons in recent memory.
Take a look back and think what the Thunder might become with another offseason to find more supporting characters.
