    The Oklahoma City Thunder had Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden on the same team under the age of 24. They made a run to the 2012 NBA Finals before losing to LeBron James and the Miami Heat. From there, it was all downhill for OKC.

Not giving Harden a chance to prove himself then giving him away is the biggest mistake Presti made

Don't even call the Warriors team the greatest team of all time. There are at least 8 better teams off the top of my head that can rip them to shreds

As a Thunder fan, of course this video is painful to watch. But I have faith in Sam Presti’s ability to draft, and the Thunder have an embarrassment of draft picks now mostly because of the Paul George trade. We also got Shai Gilgeous-Alexander in that trade, and I think that he’s a future star. Adams is a dependable center. The point is, the Thunder have plenty to build around, and will have their pick of college standouts for years to come. So the statement by some that Lillard’s shot ended the Thunder’s franchise is absolutely ridiculous. Do the Thunder have some rebuilding to do? Of course. But we have a loyal fan base, a proven coach in Billy Donovan, and an organization that has a history of drafting well. We’ll be back.

Just come up with the plan that all the "stars" make near max evenly to keep the core together. Assuming they wanted to.

This will forever be insane. If they would've just taken the risk and paid Harden no doubt we would've gotten a Thunder Heat rematch. And with more experience under their belt it at least goes to 7 games who knows what happens then. But this is the problem with a lot of small market teams they usually don't know when or even how to pull the trigger. That's why the Spurs and Raptors front offices are forever respected.

How can the Warriors be the first team to blow a 3-1 lead to the Cavs when they just came back from being down 3-1 themselves?

@Flying V no, I meant they were down 3 to 1 before and came back to with. So they can't be the first team to blow a 3 to 1 lead since the team they played before blew a 3 to 1 lead to them.

D00MTR33 makes no sense. Refs? Getting too cocky thinking they could win? That’s what killed them I think.

If Durant went to join the rockets, which we all know he wouldn't because 1. He said that in the Ibaka show, saying "I'm cool with that~ Let's Move on." if i recalled. 2. He signed 4-year contract along with Kyrie so GG. but let's just say if !!! That happens. I believe all Thunder Fans with root for Rockets if the Rockets won the title of the trio combination. This is just a sad story timeline in the end.
