Thunder’s Doug McDermott Working On Elevating His Game

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Doug McDermott is working to improve his game and to add something else to his repertoire.

McDermott doesn’t want to stay the same player and is hard at work to bring his game to the next level.

“I try to add something each summer because I don’t want to stay the same player,” McDermott said, according to Nick Gallo of NBA.com.

McDermott has a lot of room to improve after making a minimal impact during the start of his NBA career. The forward averaged just 6.6 points and 2.2 rebounds in 19.5 minutes over 22 games last season.

“I feel like I can still get a lot better… I’m just more than a spot-up shooter. I know I can move without the ball, and I think that just puts more pressure on them, and it can open up more things for everyone out there,” McDermott said.

Thunder’s Paul George Talks About Russell Westbrook

Published

on

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George had an interesting take on his MVP teammate, point guard Russell Westbrook, saying that the point guard is a bit of an “a**hole” but saying that it is fine to be one.

“You’ve got guys in the league that have that — I would say ‘a–hole’ in them that people think Russ has,” George said, according to Royce Young of ESPN. “And that’s fine. That’s fine to be an a–hole. You should be an a–hole at some point.”

In case you think that by George labeling Westbrook in such a derogatory way is a slight, George explained that it was a good thing.

“The difference is, you’ve got guys that are a–holes that don’t care to be your teammate. Russ is going to be there, regardless if he’s getting on you, if he’s chewing you out,” George explained. “If it’s something he feels he needs to address with you, he’s going to do it. But he’s going to be your teammate at the end of the day. He’s going to have your back, he’s going to stand his ground and he’s going to go to war with you. After, he’s going to laugh, he’s going to joke — that’s Russ. He’s a different type of teammate.”
