(Thank you for your support of Daily Thunder. Just 95 days until the NBA season kicks off. I hope we make it.)
How cool is it that three Thunder players were in the room when Coach K welcomed players to the Team USA mini-camp? So far Kevin Durant has made quite an impression in Vegas, but not too much to be said about Jeff Green and Russell Westbrook. But hey, that’s the breaks when you’re on the floor with KD. Durant is a lock for 2010 at the World Championships in Turkey, but don’t rule out Uncle Jeff and Westbrook yet. They did get invited after all. And even if they don’t make the roster, they’ll have a leg up for 2012 when the Olympic roster is set. Who knows what kind of players these guys could be in another three years. I don’t know about you, but it’s pretty awesome to think about.
