The Oklahoma City Thunder are simply filled with awesome players led by their trio of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden who are representing the United States in the Olympics in London this summer.
Team USA just finished off their exhibition tour beating Argentina and Spain in two games played in Spain.
Today after the win yesterday, Durant and Harden decided to go on a Segway tour of Barcelona, Spain.
The key here is that they are all about safety first and are wearing their helmets. Nothing would be worse than an Instagram photo popping up of Durant suffering a severe Segway accident. So Thunder fans needn’t worry there.
It’s great to see Durant and Harden making the most of their Olympic experience so far. It’s a great way for them to get over the crushing NBA Finals defeat from last month.
Durant was second on Team USA in scoring in their five exhibition games averaging 17.6 points per game. He also made 16-of-29 threes in the five games.
Harden played in just four of the games averaging 9.5 minutes per game and scoring 6.0 points per game. Harden was 4-of-11 from three and that’s where he could find some playing time in the Olympics if Team USA is facing a tough zone and needs more shooting on the floor.
Westbrook played 17.6 minutes per game and was fourth on the team averaging 9.4 points per game. Westbrook shot just 41 percent from the field though, second-worst on the team only to Kobe Bryant. Westbrook was a terror pressuring the international guards though and will be a very important part of this team potentially winning gold.
The Olympics are officially underway with some sports but the opening ceremony isn’t until Friday, July 27. Team USA will play its first game Sunday, July 29 vs. France.
