The Improbable Rise of Shai and the Thunder

Reading Time: 2 minutes(P/C: Sue Ogroki – AP)   After a fairly disappointing season where Paul George and Russell Westbrook were expected to lead the Thunder deep in the playoffs; a 49-33 season with a first-round exit by means of Damian Lillard (you know what I’m talking about) struck the citizens of Oklahoma quite hard.
