no, there is no such thing as a complete team in the league. always room for improvement. Also, I dont think aldrich will be as serviceable as the media members anticipate. Frankly, I doubt hes better than Collison or Etan (do they still have him?).

They'll be complete if Aldrich is ready to start.
CT: Aldrich/ Krstic/ Collison/ Mullens/ Pleiss
PF: Ibaka/ White/ Reid
SF: Durant/ Green/ Williams
SG: Sefolosha/ Harden/ Cook/ Weaver
PG: Westbrook/ Maynor/ Shakur
Bolded players probably won't be on the roster next year. (Pleiss-NBDL, Reid-NBDL, Shakur-???)

Green should not be starting at PF. He was heavily exposed against the Lakers. He should be playing Odom's role.

The guy has a lot of potential, I hope his talent won't be wasted on the bench. And don't forget: You can't teach size. But you're right, he's gotta get physically stronger, and he knows that.

Default Re: Is OKC a Complete team after this Draft ??

the Thunder were the 8th seed. Chris Paul is back, Blake Griffon is healthy, Portland might not have injury problems? , hell even Memphis and Houston had pretty good drafts. The West is tough. I wouldn't be surprised if the Thunder don't make the playoffs, especially if the Spurs don't get dismantled.

To answer the question - they are not a complete team. Any team with Kevin Durant as the leader is not a complete team, sorry. I just wouldn't feel comfortable with that guy leading me. I play with more passion when I play pickup games.

The Thunder were able to play freely in the Playoffs because of many different factors. They had no pressure on them, and were able to just play like kids at a park. They won't be able to play that way again, because if they lose in the playoffs people won't say "wow they won 2 games against so and so" People only say that once, then they expect more.

don't agree with you about durant at all. but i do agree that they better come to play next year. the west is really weak at the top (only 1 great team)....but there are a ton of good to pretty good teams capable of winning 50 games. if the blazers are healthy and the suns/spurs don't blow up....the thunder will really struggle to finish in the top 6.

Yeah honestly the top 6 are basically locks barring injuries. Bottom 2 will be a fight between Hornets , Spurs, Thunder, Rockets, Grizzlies.

The Thunder will be top 5 barring injuries. The Thunder is still a young team and they will improve next season. Westbrook is still getting better.

Actually, you can. It happens all of the time. One example is PF Taj Gibson of the Chicago Bulls.

Will they start Ibaka and have Green coming off the bench to back up the 3 and 4? Will Cole Aldrich start? Help me out here OKC fans.

Westbrook/Maynor/Weaver
Sefolosha/Harden/Cook
Durant/Green/Peterson
Ibaka/Collison/White
Aldrich/Krstic/Mullens

It will be interesting to see how the Thunder go backing up there great seaon. I still think a healthy Blazers are more complete and have a better roster. There is so many good teams in the West though...
