Wasn't dwight howard kinda skinny when he first entered the league? Now he's huge. I wonder how good the tandem of Kevin Durant and Jeff Green will be in 3-5 years. It's amazing on how much potential the Sonics have. Oklahoma is gunna have a pretty f*ckin good team in the future. They are most likely not gunna be that good this season because the team is so young and inexperienced and they are also weak inside outside of Chris Wilcox, so they are probably gunna get a top 5-7 pick in the draft. They should use the draft pick on Roy Hibbert, DeAndre Jordan, Hasheem Thabeet, or Kosta Koufos. Out of those centers, I think Thabeet or Jordan would would suit the Sonics best because they are athletic and with Durant, Wilcox, Green, and West, the Sonics basically have the making of a run-n-gun team.
The Sonics would have tremendous depth at the PF and C positions, which will help them a lot in the west. They would have Wilcox and Jordan/Thabeet starting, a long with Petro, Thomas, and Collison, coming off the bench.
Possible 08-09 roster
C- Thabeet/Jordan - Johan Petro
F- Chris Wilcox - Kurt Thomas - Nick Collison
F- Jeff Green - Damien Wilkins
G- Kevin Durant - Wally Szczerbiak
G- Delonte West - Luke Ridnour - Earl Watson
If Durant exceeds expectations, that team that I just listed will be a FORCE. In 5 years, I can almost guarantee you all that the Sonics will be championship contenders.
I think Durant is going to be one of the greats of his time. He has all the skills, just needs to get stronger and develop his passing game. The type of scorer and player he could be very soon is scary to think about, I just hope he fills his potential.
