Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are two of the top five players in the NBA, multiple time All-Stars and superstars. They’ve been to an NBA Finals and a Western Conference Finals together during their eight year run together.
This is all dandy and they deserve recognition for it all. They’ve also turned into guys who can rub you the wrong way and make it hard for casual fans to like them. I could care less about what KD and Russy said in regards to Mark Cuban or Charlie Villanueva after defeating the Dallas Mavericks to close out their first round series.
But, there’s always a but. If they don’t win soon, the fans and media not in Oklahoma City are going to come down hard on them, very hard. I just hope they get a ring soon – because boy would I hate to be those guys when the shit hits the fan.
