Im just curious on what do ya guess,
do you think they got a shot this year at the playoffs.
Ino they are still young, but Kevin Durant is a Beast and he have so much talent around them. I say they make the 7-8th seed, their going to be a surprising team this year....My homer pick

7.Okc Thunder
8.Warriors??, Jazz??

not yet young one, the thunder will rise, just not yet

^agree... not yet

they have the potential, now they have to reach it... but it takes a lot of time

I agree that they have a chance to make the playoffs...
suns and rockets are out...
one more team is in...
The teams that they are competing against are....
Clippers, Wolves, Warriors, Grizz, and Kings

I personally think they are the best of that group...

but if not this year...next year for sure

I can see Durant making the All-Star team, but besides him, the rest of the team needs a year to make the playoffs.

Jazz are better... it will come down to Phoenix, Oklahoma City, and LA Clippers. WHichever one plays up to their potential will make the 8th seed...

I have it:
1. Lakers
2. Spurs
3. NUggets
4. Mavs
5. Blazers
6. Jazz
7. Hornets
8. Suns/Thunder/Clippers

when they get a center that can rebound well? i love nenad but he isn't the type to get 10+ every night. i look for them to be one of the worst in the league again since they're in the northwest. got denver, minny, portland and utah to contend against. that's pretty hard. anyway i see where they were going by picking harden this year. they have 1-4 set. next year seems relatively deep with big men just as this year had a bunch of pgs. they'll find their franchise big man there as long as they dont draft another saer sene.

Yeah i already counted the Jazz in the playoffs...
Warriors could contend for the 8th spot as well...
If they can stay healthy...

Remember that they were near .500 for the second half of last season. Everyone except Harden, who is pretty polish for a rook, will be a year wiser. I think they have a shot at the playoffs.

08-03-2009, 02:54 PM
they got to finish with a 500. record first so I don't think it'll be this year, maybe next. But honestly that 8th spot is up for grabs this year so who knows

08-03-2009, 02:57 PM
I expect them to improve a lot this year in the win column, but I dont think they will make the playoffs til next year.

I agree with your list mostly...but gotta switch Denver and Portland...Portland is too over rated.

8.???? up in the air.

Thunder arent quite there yet...they had some solid stretches of play last year, but also at times they looked like the worst team in the NBA.
