Assessing The Enemy: Oklahoma City Thunder
Over the course of the past few seasons, no team in the NBA has made such a systematic and stratospheric rise as the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Three short seasons ago, the Thunder opened the basketball world’s eyes to their exciting brand of basketball, as they took the then-reigning (and soon to be again) NBA champion Lakers to six.
The following year, they survived a tough series against us, (which I believe we would have won had Rudy been on the court, but that’s a story for days passed), only to fall to the eventual champion Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals.
Then last year, Oklahoma City finally conquered the west, only to find themselves over-matched and out-gunned by Lebron James and the Miami Heat, in the NBA Finals.
The Thunder’s elevation has been remarkable, and while it’s no consolation, losing in the playoffs only to the champion-to-be three years in a row is nothing to scoff at.
To claim the championship throne, there is now only one more step that OKC needs to take… but the last step is always more of a leap than a stride.
I know that this sounds crazy talking about a team of 20-something-year-olds, especially one that has made such prominent advances with each subsequent year, but one is left to wonder if the current incarnation of the team will plateau.
Unless they do something drastic with the supporting cast, I’m not sure how much better Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Kevin Durant can make this team.
