A few New Year's resolutions from the Thunder:

Coach Scott Brooks: “It's the same one I have every Monday — get in better shape. This Monday, I'm going to eat healthy and work out every day. The good thing is (I've) got an in-shape team.”

Forward Nick Collison: “No texting and driving. That's my biggest one. (Basketball-wise) do better with leads late in games. That would probably be the biggest one for us — to build leads or keep leads.”

Guard Daequan Cook: “To grow as a player, as a person. Mature each and every day. Be wiser, a better father, a better man than last year. You know, the basics.”

Center Cole Aldrich: “My thing is I don't ever do resolutions because what's the point of doing something at the beginning of the year when you can do it any other time? I could start doing whatever any other time of the year.”

Forward Kevin Durant: “I never really was on that. Maturing by the day, I guess. I've never really picked a resolution.”

Guard Russell Westbrook: Six hours before midnight, Westbrook admitted he did not have a resolution. “I've still got time,” Westbrook said, unconcerned.
