Westbrook and Durant played eight seasons together as one of the Association's top tandems from 2008 through 2016 before the latter bolted to the Golden State Warriors.

The two guided Oklahoma City to the playoffs six times, advancing to the NBA Finals in 2011-12 before falling to the Miami Heat in five games.

Westbrook has made 125 more appearances in a Thunder uniform than Durant in the regular season, and he's played 2,101 more minutes.
