Oklahoma City Thunder: Report card on Andre Roberson

by Anthony Slater Published: June 20, 2014

Starting stint: C – For really the first time since relocating to Oklahoma City, the Thunder experienced a trying regular season riddled with injuries. But the benefit was extra opportunities for the youngsters. And Andre Roberson certainly benefited, going from inactive to the starting lineup for 16 games with Thabo Sefolosha out. The Thunder was 12-4 during that stint and, while he didn’t star, Roberson played a part. He always stuck the opposing team’s best perimeter player and allowed the rest of the OKC rotation to stay intact.

Rebounding: A – Probably his best skill. And it really just seems to come naturally. Because he moves so swiftly, jumps so fluidly, attacks so relentlessly and has a constant nose for the ball, Roberson seems to be around every rebound. His 11.3 boards per 48 minutes this season were fourth on the Thunder, behind only Steven Adams, Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka. And he’s a shooting guard.
