Russell Westbrook is back!
Russell Westbrook apparently is one heck of a fast healer. The Oklahoma City Thunder will play tonight against the Phoenix Suns at home despite being ahead of schedule by nearly a month. Russell will be a welcomed addition for the Thunder who now has their second banana back.

After undergoing a second surgery on his right knee, Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook was predicted to miss the first 4-6 weeks of the regular season, however, he made his return weeks early Sunday night against the Phoenix Suns.
Westbrook seemed to show no fear in his return, as he played with the same tenacity and aggressiveness, and speed he’s known for.
On his first possession...
It’s been over five months since Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook has played since his knee injury against the Houston Rockets in last year’s playoffs.

Kevin Martin seemingly took a cheap shot on twitter to former teammates Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
Kevin Martin on playing with the Wolves: “This is such a fun team to play on. Nobody is trying to lead the league in scoring here.”

Sounds like Martin didn’t enjoy his time much playing with the Thunder and thinks Westbrook...
Two games into the season and there are real issues. Seriously.
Not to panic or anything, but this kind of start is pretty close to worst-case scenario for the Thunder. Kevin Durant shooting a lot and not getting much other help.If it was Kobe Bryant, people might say he's not getting his teammates involved enough. However, Durant doesn't have a lot of the negativity thrown...
After playing for only one season with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kevin Martin signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves and appears to be enjoying playing with his new mates.
Earlier today, Martin was asked about his current team and he gave a rather candid answer about how much fun it was to play for Minnesota instead of OKC:
Kevin Martin on playing with the Wolves: "This is...
Good to see these two back in action. With a healthy Westbrook, the Thunder should be right in the mix to get out of the Western Conference this year. Thanks to Blacksportsonline for the footage.
Surprise! Surprise! Russell Westbrook is back. The Oklahoma Thunder are listing thats Russell is active today and will start against the Suns with no minute restrictions. This is obviously phenomenal news for Westbrook owners, who need to get him in their starting lineups immediately. As for Reggie Jackson owners, he can safely be dropped in shallow leagues and possibly in deeper...

Home. Sweet. Home, The Thunder come back to Oklahoma City tonight for its home opener, and what a home opener it will be. For every sports writer covering NBA basketball, or Thunder basketball in general,...
Kevin Martin, the best player the Oklahoma City Thunder received in exchange for sending James Harden to the Rockets last year, is now in Minnesota, where he’s running alongside a fully healthy Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love. Friday night, the Timberwolves demolished Martin’s former team 100-81, which, trust me, isn’t indicative of how much of a blowout it really was. Over the...
Kevin Martin is happy playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves after spending a season on the Oklahoma City Thunder, as he says it’s more fun to play on a team that doesn’t have anybody “trying to lead the league in scoring.”
According to the Star Tribune:
This is such a fun team to play on. Nobody is trying to lead the league in scoring here. Everybody has the big picture...
MINNEAPOLIS -- Vast potential, packed into a 6.9-second window.
Desperately seeking to provide Oklahoma City some semblance of momentum, Kevin Durant misfired on a contested 3-pointer. Kevin Love tore down the rebound, led Ricky Rubio with an arching outlet pass, then watched his ace point guard bounce a perfect helper to a loping Nikola Pekovic.
The big man lay home two of his...
Fresh start: Martin obviously feels the Timberwolves are more of a team than the one he played on last season.
Timberwolves newcomer KEVIN MARTIN says he is much happier in Minnesota after spending last season in Oklahoma City with the Thunder. Yet when Martin gave his reasoning why things are much peachier now as opposed to last year, he appeared to direct his comments at one player...
