This week on the Phil Naessens Show, we discuss the struggles that the Thunder have had since the All-Star break. Are the wins over the Trail Blazers and Celtics a sign of a turning point? Or will OKC regress again as we have seen so many times? On a different topic, we focus on Enes Kanter, the man that the Blazers signed to an offer sheet last off-season, precipitating OKC going all in on the Thunder big man to the tune of a max contract. The contract aside, should Kanter be considered for 6th Man of the Year?
