The Thunder officially launched its campaign today for Russell Westbrook in the race for Rookie of the Year.
But unlike several teams past and present, Oklahoma City officials didn’t put on the full-court press and woo voters through gifts or gimmicks.
There are no gadgets. No clever or even cheesy promotion that portrays Westbrook’s accomplishments. And no DVD filled with his highlight-reel plays.
The Thunder just sent out this, a flyer on Westbrook that lists his stats and achievements. Not very convincing, really.
But the New Jersey Nets were just as bland, only they included a cool video link in their electronic flyer.
