Top Ten Things I Think I've Learned About the Oklahoma City Thunder!

This was my first year rooting for the Oklahoma City Thunder from Day 1 and I certainly don't have buyer's remorse with this team.  Despite coming up short this season, they took yet another step towards the ultimate goal and they've now proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are a force to be reckoned with in the NBA for years to come.  Below is a partial list - in no particular order - of my thoughts about the franchise after a year of fandom.  I would like to thank the franchise for their performance both on and off the court, the fans for being so welcoming and this blog for providing such a sound link to both for me.  We'll get it next year!

1) Russell Westbrook is a spectacular two-guard, but he's still learning the point... and he'll get there
2) Kevin Durant can still be a MUCH better scorer; he just needs to round out his game and he will
3) Serge Ibaka has improved dramatically and he's not even close to his ceiling yet
4) Thabo Sefolosha and Kendrick Perkins should never be on the floor together
5) James Harden and Nick Collison should get starter minutes, even if one or both is still coming off the bench
‎6) They should let Harden run the offense and Westbrook work off the ball more often
7) Eric Maynor is an underrated back-up point who could well start elsewhere in the NBA
8) OKC definitely has the best crowd in professional basketball and perhaps the best in all of professional sports
9) I'm not quite sold on Scott Brooks yet, but he's earned another year from me
10) This team could have won the NBA championship this year and they WILL win it sooner rather than later

Go Thunder!
