Just a few seasons ago, the Oklahoma City roster boasted three MVP candidates in Kevin Durant, James Harden and Russell Westbrook, who claimed the NBA’s highest individual award last season. With Durant chasing titles in Oakland and Harden causing mayhem in Houston, the Thunder constructed a new big three in the offseason, landing Carmelo Anthony and Paul George via trade. OKC’s latest triumvirate may not be as talented as their original, but they are arguably more intriguing. Along with Westbrook, Anthony remains one of the more mercurial talents in the game and, aside from injury, George has yet to refine his NBA narrative. Spurs versus Thunder has been a must-see matchup since 2012’s Western Conference Finals, and this latest iteration should not disappoint.
