The Oklahoma City Thunder enter the season with a top-five player in the NBA, an MVP candidate and a potential scoring champion, but no I am not talking about Kevin Durant. Russell Westbrook is totally ready to take the reins and will most probably have his best season yet in 2016. The triple-double machine and point guard will have Victor Oladipo as his sidekick, an explosively athletic guard who the Thunder got from Orlando for Serge Ibaka. Oladipo is a high-flying shooting guard who should be a very interesting compliment to Westbrook’s similar style. Along with Oladipo, the Thunder also received Turkish big man Ersan Ilyasova and 2016 first round pick Domantas Sabonis. Ilyasova is a lights out shooter and will provide floor spacing around Victor Oladipo and Russell Westbrook’s forays to the rim. The affectionately dubbed “Stache Brothers” Steven Adams and Enes Kanter are also returning. Adams and Kanter ran roughshod over the rest of the Western Conference in the playoffs manhandling opposing big men around the rim and on the offensive glass. New Zealander Steven Adams also showcased his development into one of the brightest young stars in the NBA. He was a monstrous presence around the rim on defense and a willing finisher on the offensive end.
Along with their established veterans, there are a couple young players the Thunder are really hoping develop into good players, Domantas Sabonis, Andre Roberson and Cameron Payne. The Gonzaga product, Sabonis, is also the son of NBA legend Arvydas Sabonis and like his father is a highly skilled and ambidextrous big man. Roberson is a defensive menace whose long arms and quickness make him impossible to get rid of. Payne, on the other hand, is a small crafty point guard who has an excellent sense of when to throw a lob pass or pop out for a three pointer. If the youngsters develop and Russell Westbrook has the humongous season many envision for him then this Thunder team should be one of the top contenders in the Western Conference.
