I understand losing in 2012 because they were a young team then losing in 2013 because of injuries, but in 2014 and 2016 they should've made it to the finals again. They were the better team clearly.

Westbrook,Harden are ball hogs who play hero ball.OKC were never going to win a championship.Durant is the only one who is a team player

What would have happened if the Thunder simply just chose Harden over Ibaka...
You Know What's Cooking? BOOM!
The thunder line up should be like this
PG lillard, SG harden, SF durant , PF ibaka , C adams
they should not deal harden that time, instead the one they should trade is westbrook not harden.
When lillard enter nba draft i think thats the year they should trade westbrook. & when they think that time whos the one they sholud be traded their choosing harden or ibaka. And then they choose harden, i think thats the start of the collapsed of thunder.
They traded the wrong person

Great analysis. Just one thing to add (that most people forget): When George was with the Thunder the second year, he almost brought them an MVP award. He was pretty close

They didn't draft a dynasty, Seattle did, they stole it. They didn't deserve it.

Scottie Brooks......no more overrated coach in the History of the NBA. He has done so little with so much, I don't know why he still has a job anywhere in basketball. Cautionary story to GM's and directors in athletics.

Sam Presti is really a hell of a GM. They left out how in 2020, The Thunder, with CP3 and then draft picks are higher seeded than the Rockets with both Westbrook and Harden. OKC missed the playoffs in just one of those seasons (still a winning 45 games).

They all had fat egos. All three of them. Durant’s was just chilled out. You can’t win with all that selfishness.

That's what you get when you pander to a moron like Westboob and his fans. 0 BBIQ "superstar" allowed to inflate and stat-pad. Imagine picking Westboob over Harden and Durant in the pecking order, effectively ruining your franchise.

It's crazy to think if the Thunder just gave Harden his money they could have been championships

The coaches were the problem. They needed an elite coach to match the elite players. The plays they were running were horrendous. It worked in the regular season but everyone can see it wasn't good enough for the playoffs. The system was never gonna be good enough to beat Miami and Golden State.
Emile Pelletier
Emile Pelletier - 19 days ago
Gareth Keenan Yeah that’s true. With an elite coach they would’ve reached at least the Finals, even without Harden

Might be the best 3 year draft stretch in history. Only if they weren't dumb enough to trade Harden before Westbrook.

Westbrook haters need to watch this. “OkC nEvEr WoN a ChIp CaUsE oF rUsS.” There were so many factors as to why OKC never won a chip, not just Russ

if KD, Westbrook, Harden, Ibaka , stays in OkC they may be still a Champion contender in my opinion...

When you've got great players on the team, but cannot compliment each other then there must be something wrong with the coach.

They choked because they inherited the seattle sports curse when they stole the team.

The mistake was in letting Harden go. OKC did not appreciate the guy enough, and it cost them everything on the long run.

The only reason for thunders failure to deliver was Westbrook!
From the moment i saw him i was totally unimpressed and loved what harden was doing on the floor.
Westbrook should do triathlon or something and stay away from a team sports!!!
