Russell Westbrook Gets Emotional After Thunder Lost By Double Digits To The Magic (VIDEO)
When the OKC Thunder traded for Paul George during the offseason, everybody was excited to see Russell Westbrook get some help after basically being a one man wrecking crew last season en route to winning the MVP.
The team then added Carmelo Anthony to give the squad even more fire power for opposing defenses to try and stop, and the Thunder were definitely trending in the right direction.
Twenty games into the season and the experiment is failing miserably as the squad sits at 8-12 after they lost yet again to the Orlando Magic last night. Westbrook put up 37 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists, but it wasn’t enough as the team still lost by double digits.
Following the game, Westbrook had to stop, sit on the bench, and collect his thoughts for a minute. You could see the early losses to teams they should be beating was weighing on him.

If this team doesn’t figure it out, it’s almost a foregone conclusion that Paul George will be leaving for the Lakers next summer.
