This week on the Phil Naessens Show, we of course have to dig into the Thunder's situation where Kevin Durant is expected to miss the first 2 months of the season. Will this obstacle be too difficult for OKC to overcome? Could they really be headed for the lottery if Durant misses more than 50% of the season? We cover all this and more, including how the Thunder will make up ground on the backs of the new class at Thunder U, including Steven Adams, Jeremy Lamb, and Perry Jones.

Also, check out the link above, as Naessens has a few additional things to say about the Thunder. He is doubtful:

I know what you’re thinking; the Thunder still have Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka and you would be correct. Two top 20 players on the floor every night can’t be a bad thing but where oh where is the Thunder going to replace a player who averaged per game totals of 42 minutes, 29.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 30.1 estimated wins added?

I'm joined by Zorgon, who is back to talk Warriors basketball, and Dave Ramil, who talks Miami Heat. Listen in!
