Sometimes, things just aren't fair. It isn't fair to the Oklahoma City Thunder and their fans that Russell Westbrook had a freak accident on the court that wasn't his fault. It isn't fair that Westbrook was forced to miss this entire series against the Memphis Grizzlies. It isn't fair that Kevin Durant was forced to put a team on his back without any consistent help from his teammates against the second best defense in the NBA. None of that was fair to the Thunder and losing in five games seems like a horrible way to end what looked to be such a promising season.
