Flint’s Morris Peterson talks about his leadership role with the young Oklahoma City Thunder

When Flint native Morris Peterson was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the offseason, it was assumed that as a NBA veteran, he’d bring steady leadership to the young team.

But although Peterson does thing his NBA experience can help the young guys, he also doesn’t think the team needs much help:

“I do understand that I have a little bit more experience, but those guys did a great job last year and I’m just trying to add to that.”

The Thunder made the playoffs in the competitive Western Conference last season and stretched the world champion Lakers to six games in the first round despite having one of the youngest rosters in the league. Here’s the full clip of Peterson’s media day interview with the Oklahoma City media.

    It’s hard not to like Mo Pete. I remember having to interview him in the gym at NW during one of his camps. It must have been 100+ degrees in there and he couldn’t have been any nicer.

  2. Definitely. Mo Pete, Bell and Cleaves are all great guys to interview.
