Kevin Durant: 'Oklahoma City Thunder can win a championship'

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant believes that the team can still be championship contenders.

Kevin Durant has said that the Oklahoma City Thunder can still challenge for an NBA championship.

The team reached the Finals in the 2011-12 season, but lost in the conference semi-finals last season.

The forward told The AP: "We're very confident that we can [win the championship].

"We're not going to come in and say, 'We can't win it all, we don't have enough'. We're a confident group of guys."

Since moving to Oklahoma City in 2008, the side have only failed to reach the playoffs once.
