Darnell Mayberry is covering the Thunder in Houston, so be sure to follow his daily notes. Some of the best comments from Day 1:
- Pretty significant statement from Russell Westbrook in his media session today. “I think it’s very important to be able to stay with one team and stay with a great organization like we have and be able to do things like this. It’s a blessing.”
- Apparently, Westbrook used to play tennis. Seriously. That’s what he said today.
- Durant didn’t put himself in the top three for the regular season MVP race. “It’s LeBron and (Chris Paul) and Tony Parker for me. That’s how I look at it,” Durant said. “Those guys have the best records and they’ve done so much for their teams.”
