The Oklahoma City Thunder have struggled so far this season despite the fact that they traded for superstars Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in order to provide some help for All-Star point guard Russell Wwestbrook.
They started the season with a 13-14 record, which is not good at all for all of the star power they have. And of course there's been plenty of talk around the NBA as to why the Thunder are struggling.
The good news for the Thunder is that they were able to go on the road and defeat a good Indiana Pacers team on Wednesday night. Hopefully they can build off of this win and get their act together. But we'll see.
After the game, Thunder center Steven Adams was hunched over while being interviewed on the court and Westbrook had some fun by pretending to RKO him. Check it out below.

Adams' reaction was pretty funny. He didn't seem surprised at all given the fact that it was Westbrook. I'm sure they have a fun-loving relationship inside the locker room.
It's nice to see the Thunder having fun, but they still have a lot to prove in a very difficult Western Conference. They have some tough games coming up against solid teams like the Philadelphia 76ers, New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets. Then they'll be facing off against the red hot Houston Rockets on Christmas Day.
Despite a rough start, the Thunder are currently in 9th place in the west, only one game out of the 8th and final playoff spot. They still have time to get their act together, so there's no reason to panic just yet.
When it comes to the RKO, I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that Westbrook is a WWE fan as well as a fan of Randy Orton.
There have been quite a few links between NBA teams and wrestling, Just recently the Phoenix Suns showed some love for the Bullet Club by posting a tweet with a similar logo while writing that Devin Booker's shot is "too sweet."
Comment below and tell us whether you think Westbrook could pull off an RKO in a real wrestling match.
