Participate in our Power Lunch chats Monday-Friday at 11 a.m. at NewsOK.com/sports On Russell Westbrook making the 2011 NBA All-Star team: Yes. He's become just as much a part of opposing coaches' game plans as Kevin Durant. And although Westbrook won't get voted in as a starter by the fans, the Western Conference coaches who select the West's reserves know how good he's been this year. On the national media's perception of Oklahoma City and the Thunder: Every media member that I run into loves this team. And I mean everything about this team. It's rare that I hear a negative word about the roster, coaching or front office. The national guys know that this team is not a finished product and that there are weaknesses that need to be addressed. But I think they view it as more of a long term project and are more impressed with how it's coming together as opposed to the same old quick fix type of agendas that many organizations look to have. On Thunder GM Sam Presti making a personnel move during before the trade deadline: The nine-man rotation will not be touched this season in my opinion. The plan is to let this core grow together, and no matter how close outsiders might feel this team is to becoming a championship caliber team insiders view that day as a long way off. The organization is still being extremely patient with its building so nothing is likely to happen with the core players. I can't say that I disagree with that approach. On Thunder forward Jeff Green being a member of the team next season: I'm not ready to write it off just yet. The organization loves Green's attitude, his professionalism and the skill set he brings to the table. It's going to depend on a lot of things. But the Thunder values Green, and Green values winning. I wouldn't be shocked to see Green take less money and perhaps a lesser role to remain in town long term.
