Watch: Russell Westbrook Discusses Thunder Big 3 Era With Kevin Durant, James Harden
Thunder guard Russell Westbrook took some time to reminisce on Friday while discussing Oklahoma City's Big 3 era with comedian and actor Kevin Hart. Westbrook detailed the potential success had Kevin Durant and James Harden stayed in Oklahoma City before sharing his opinions on the NBA's super-team era.
"We made it to the Finals. I definitely know if we could have stayed together, we would have been a problem for sure," Westbrook told Hart. "We talked about it for a couple of years but not much. Everybody else is talking about it ever since."
The 2016-17 MVP said developing super teams akin to the Warriors is, "not my style."
"I like to compete, I like to go against the best," Westbrook said. "That's just why I've always stayed in Oklahoma City."
Westbrook may not be part of a super team, but the Thunder have been impressive heading into the All-Star break. Oklahoma City is 37–20, third in the West. Westbrook has notched a triple-double in 11-straight games, while teammate Paul George has recently entered the MVP conversation.
