Russell Westbrook has something to prove, and will: Northwest Division preview

College Contributor Network

The third episode of our NBA preview podcast covers the Northwest division with the Thunder, Blazers and a few less noteworthy lottery teams with the Timberwolves, Nuggets and Jazz.

Will Russell Westbrook take the league by storm with Kevin Durant out for at least a month? The former MVP suffered a broken foot, and with the many questions regarding Westbrook's abilities, Khari and Theo discuss what we should expect.

The Blazers have one goal this season, re-sign LaMarcus Aldridge. In order to ensure he doesn't jump ship for a larger market, Portland needs to ensure the 29-year-old power forward the Blazers can contend before his prime exhausts.

These topics and many more, including the "bounce brothers" of Minnesota, are discussed in this episode of "The Give & Go with Khari and Theo."
