Kevin Durant title : Oklahoma City Thunder Kevin Durant Eye LaMarcus Aldridge, Kobe Bryant Defeat; Russell Westbrook, Dion Waiters Excited For NBA Season
summary : The Oklahoma City Thunder are entering the upcoming NBA season with incredibly strong confidence that the Kevin Durant squad could finally clinch the Western Conference title this.
