Re: The 2011-12 OKC Thunder team is one of the more stacked teams of all time.
They are and certainly were stacked though.
They only didn't win the chip, because they didn't have a post presence. Teams without a guy that can legitimately provide post play allows teams to really play small, and the small lineup is what allowed the Heat to matchup so well vs OKC.
Ibaka couldn't punish Lebron or Battier downlow. KD doesn't have a really effective post game, unless he has a much smaller player defending him. Perkins was obviously made irrelevant basically.
Because of that little fact, I don't think they could've or are a dynasty type team. I don't think that they or the Heat are clear favorites to win anything this year.
