People love the Oklahoma City Thunder, so when the news broke of Russell Westbrook's season-ending injury (and subsequent surgery), people took to social media to share their thoughts. Here are 20 of them.

19. Too true
You could make an all-star team from the players out right now: Rose, Rondo, Westbrook, Kobe, Danilo, David Lee.

15. Say it isn’t so
Russell Westbrook is out with a torn meniscus. Congrats Miami Heat, 2012* and 2013** Champs. * shortened season **all hurt competition

14. The hopeful unite
Metta World Peace (returned after 12 days) is certainly a unique dude. But so is Russell Westbrook. I wouldn’t rule out playoff return.

13. There’s a first time for everything
Russell Westbrook’s consecutive game streak: 439 counting playoffs, but he never missed a game at UCLA or Leuzinger High School either.

8. Personal foul!
Kevin Durant the happiest man on earth right now….he finally gonna get the ball with Westbrook hurt.

7. Someone had to say it
Westbrook is done now!? Wow, there u go Miami!? Free championship? SHOULD’VE KEPT HARDEN. Harden/ Durant>>>Westbrook/Durant!
— Trevon Stanton (@TriggaTreSwag93) April 26, 2013
6. That’s the stuff
The Thunder will be just fine. They have the players that can and will fill Westbrook’s void. One player doesn’t make a team.

5. Writing them off already
I might volunteer to go into work tomorrow so I dont have to watch the Thunder play w/o Russ.

4. Keeping it real
I may not be much a Russell Westbrook fan, but you don’t want to see talented players go down in the playoffs.

3. Someone call the whambulance
I’m conflicted about how to feel about the news regarding Russell Westbrook. The guy has such great style… but he plays for OKC. #GoSonics

2. This guy!
Still don’t think Beverley lunging for ball as Westbrook tried to call time was dirty. Russ stuck out his knee to impede Beverley. It gave.
