Default 3rd Pick...

Damn when the Kings and Wizards were out of the way I thought we were top 2 for sure. This is, in my opinion, the toughest place to pick in the draft. Griffin and Rubio are sure 1 & 2 but there is a lot of different ways to go with this pick. I wouldn't be opposed to trading down. Right now I like Harden if we keep the pick.

Thabeet might work, assuming he's mobile enough to run up the floor with Durant, Green, and Westbrook. Harden seems like a nice complementary player, though, who would mesh well with Durant and Westbrook, and his jump shot would be deadly if Westbrook can master the drive and dish.

We have the assets to trade up to #2, but not #1.

Thats what I really hope can happen. Westbrook penetrates dishes to either Durant, Harden, or Green outside. If we had gone through with the Tyson Chandler trade this pick would be so much damn easier and our team would be set to be ready to contend.

yeah.. i think thabeet isnt what the thunder needs... since kristic is playing quite well... if the chandler trade went fine.. harden would be an easy choice.

Set to contend? Really?? Please explain how having Chandler and the number three pick make the thunder a contender. A team that won what 22 games? If by contender you mean a shot at the lottery. Then I could maybe agree with that. But not a championship contender.

We have been bad so long I meant contend for the 8th playoff seed.

But yeah with chandler and the #3 pick they might be able to get there.
