Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-11-01

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-11-01

Kevin Durant and the rest of the Thunder organization don't have any illusions of the expectations being placed on the former second pick of the draft.

He's the face of the franchise, which has set up shop in Oklahoma City.

"Everybody outside of the franchise sees me as that, but everybody I deal with every day, we don't look at it like that," Durant said. "We're all one group. I'm glad that's how it is here. I wouldn't want it any other way."

Internally, the plan is not to put too much pressure on his shoulders. Durant has a pair of lottery-pick teammates in Jeff Green and Russell Westbrook, and the roster is rounded out by serviceable vets.

"For us to be where we want to be as a franchise, it's going to take a lot more than Kevin," coach P.J. Carlesimo added. "We're delighted that we have Kevin and hopefully Kevin will stay as the face of the franchise for a long time, but he'll be the first to tell you that it's going to take a lot of people contributing for us to be good."

BUCKS 98, THUNDER 87: Milwaukee spoiled the NBA debut of the Thunder before a packed house Wednesday night in Oklahoma City that included commissioner David Stern.

Michael Redd, Richard Jefferson and Andrew Bogut each scored 20 for the Bucks, who never trailed and evened their record at 1-1 after losing the previous night at Chicago.

Oklahoma City was led by its bench. Chris Wilcox scored 15, rookie Russell Westbrook added 13 and Desmond Mason had 11. Starting shooting guard Kevin Durant managed just 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting.
