Thunder View Their Age as an Advantage

Are you too young to win a title? Does experience matter?
Here’s a funny thing about the Thunder: In three years, they’re still going to be young and “inexperienced.” In three years, instead of being 23 and 24 years old, they’ll be 26 and 27 years old. Not exactly savvy old veterans.
The Thunder don’t care about that stuff. Yeah, they’re one of the youngest teams ever to advance to the NBA Finals, but age is just a number to them.
“It really doesn’t matter,” said Russell Westbrook. “I think the youth thing is kind of out of the window for us. I think we’ve got enough experience in the playoff atmosphere and playoff games to be able to have an opportunity to win games. We’re going to come out like any other team and play our game.”
Said Kevin Durant: “We’ve played a lot of big games. Of course, everybody is going to say it’s not our time, we’re too young, it’s going to happen eventually, but that’s not the approach we ever want to take with anything. I learned that when I was a kid.”
