By Tashan Reed: Staff Writer @ Hoopstuff… PG: Russell Westbrook - Russell Westbrook’s style of play is more of a two guard’s game; however, he’s fully capable of playing the point.

Steven Adams: 'If I'm like a d---,' people will think all Kiwis are

Oklahoma City Thunder big man Steven Adams annoyed opponents with his physicality in his rookie year, but he was a pleasant surprise in a disappointing overall crop from the 2013 draft. While he managed to get into minor altercations with a fairly long list of NBA players, the tough Kiwi never really reacted to other people roughing him up.

Thunder wanting to upgrade its offense is the right way to go

Roll call on the Thunder summer. Drafted Mitch McGary. Tried to sign Pau Gasol. Did sign Anthony Morrow. Re-signed Grant Jerrett. Let’s see. A rookie with all kinds of offensive talent but probably not ready for NBA defensive assignments. A former superstar who isn’t the player he used to be but still has a great set of ball skills.
