Before “The Beard” was one of the best players in the NBA, he was easily the greatest bench player in the NBA during his time with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He played in OKC for 3 seasons, improving quite a lot each season, and his third and final season proved to be his best with the team. He averaged 16.8 PPG, 4.1 RPG and 3.7 APG earning him the Sixth Man of the Year award and proving to everyone he had the star power and talent to lead a team by himself. He has proven just that as he was traded to the Rockets the very next season and has become a perennial MVP contender.
