The Oklahoman's Darnell Mayberry raises an interesting question that probably already has a real answer, but I think it is still worth considering:
I agree with Mayberry that it does not fit into the OKC Thunder ethos of making a big deal out of something that is merely a stepping stone toward the real goal, which is a championship. However, it IS a big deal, and one worth notice because of how quickly the organization has righted itself and doing it in a way which the rest of the league has admired.
One thing I would be utterly shocked to see however is any sort of recognition made before tonight's game against the Nuggets. There's no need to stoke that fire.
UPDATE: Here is a great take on the diminished usefulness of divisions within the East and West conferences.
It should be the easiest thing in the world to simply take the best eight teams from each conference and make a playoff. All divisions do is make it more complicated than it need be.
