It seems as if this time every season Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks is in the hot seat with many questioning his in game decision making and rotations.  After being eliminated from the playoffs last evening at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs, the two franchise players Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook spoke out in defense of their coach.

"That's our guy," Durant said. "I'm riding with him. I'm riding with him. It's easy for everybody on the outside to criticize, but once you're in the fire, once you're in that arena, those are the guys that matter. The guys that share the blood, sweat and tears, and sleepless nights, those are the guys that count, those are the guys that matter in our book. Everybody on the outside really doesn't."
Said Westbrook: "Ever since I've been here and Scotty became the coach, he's done a great job in having confidence in me personally. There's times where things have gone south and he's the only that always, always had my back, regardless of what happened. People saying I was doing this or doing that, being selfish, being that, he was always the first person to step up and have my back and support me regardless of what's going on. I think he does a great job of always staying positive and trusting in our guys and trusting in our team."
