Is OKC’s “Big Three” Narrow the Gap against the Defending Champion GSW?

NBA – The Western Conference has gotten bigger and better against their counterpart Eastern Conference for the last few years, The West is composed of very good team compare to the East where if Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets put into the East? The best team in the East Cleveland Cavaliers will fall to 5th or 6th places in the East Standings? That shows how great and more talented teams in the West.


The 2017 – 2018 NBA Season is about to start with less than a month to go and the teams in the West shows more interesting after some of them form their own super team all in one goal of dethroning the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors will remain the top team to beat this season, whether it’s from the West or East, the defending champion is still the favorite of winning the Larry O’Brien Trophy for the second straight season? But there are some legitimate teams that can arguably stop the Warriors?

The new and improve Oklahoma City Thunder is a legit contender for the Western Conference Championship against the Warriors, the late addition of Carmelo Anthony from a trade deal between the Thunder and the Knicks form a “Big Three” in OKC with Melo, Russell Westbrook and Paul George who is also acquired from a trade from the Pacers. The three NBA superstar will surely lift the Thunders chances of much better post season and if lucky enough, they will have a chance to dethrone the Warriors and have some revenge from the ex- Thunder Kevin Durant.

Reigning MVP Russell Westbrook will be the main guy of the OKC, Paul George will be the 2nd options and perhaps Carmelo Anthony as the 3rd options? Will the Thunder’s Big Three stun the defending champion? Or will the Warriors get past the West easily and returns back to the NBA Finals for the 4th straight season? Let’s wait and see…
