NBATV's Oklahoma City Thunder Preview, Featuring Chris Webber


In this video, Chris Webber basically gives a short preview of the Thunder for your average NBA fan. He discusses "taking the next step", building around Westbrook and Durant, and how a point guard like Westbrook has to operate. The most surprising thing Webber says has to do with Kendrick Perkins, whom is supposedly not a good fit for the Thunder because he can't do one-on-one defense. He goes on to say the Thunder need a shotblocker so they can get out in transition.

I agree that Perk can't do one-on-one defense very well, but he's got the perfect help defense in Serge Ibaka, who is *ahem* THE NBA'S BEST SHOTBLOCKER. Despite what I think is silly analysis, Perkins hasn't shown he can fit in offensively yet, as he was much more of a factor in the Boston offense and doesn't have a really solid assist man on the Thunder. Still, Webber's analysis overall is solid, though he speaks in vast generalities.
