That’s how he plays. Hard charging. Hair on fire.
And until now, none of that has kept him from a game.
Westbrook has played every game that the Thunder has played. Since the franchise planted a stake in the ground in Oklahoma City, Westbrook hasn’t missed a game, 394 in the regular season and 45 in the playoffs.
Part of that has been due to his good genes and his resiliency. Part of that has been due to the team’s training and medical staff. But part of that has been due to luck. The difference between being fine and being injured is just that razor thin.
No two ways around that.
Great teams have to have some luck, and for the past few years, the Thunder have had it. No starter has suffered major injury. Heck, few reserves have.
But that good fortune ran out Friday.
Does that mean the Thunder is no longer a contender?
That remains to be seen, but we’ve come to find out it sure is easier to be one of the best teams in the league when luck is on your side.
