Most of the web's NBA power rankers have played the waiting game with the Oklahoma City Thunder. However, the extremely dominant and focused play of the team is forcing them to stop with the waiting and just put the team at No. 1. The Thunder continue to trend upward in the power rankings, as they convince more and more people just how good they are with Kevin Martin and without James Harden.
