Also, the OKC organization has been building through the draft not going after FA's. I don't think they are even interested in going head hunting for big name FA's. Also what FA wouldn't want to play with a young cast like that.

It's a sad day in the NBA when Joe Johnson is making more than Kevin Durant.

7-9 years experience max contracts are 30% of the cap. so bosh, wade, james are eligible for more money.

Figured that.

Love how business like Kevin Durant is. Seriously, no circus or anything. He gets offered an extension and responds quickly with praise to the Thunder.

Quickly becoming a huge favorite for me. Good job by the Thunder to lock him up for 5 more years.

that's the impressive thing. this is the fastest-built playoff team/would-be contender that i've ever seen. other teams may land a star player and be in contention immediately (heat with shaq, lakers with gasol), but as far as building internally, it's just been phenomenal.

and while the front office deserves credit for putting the right mix of players together, you gotta hand it to those players for keeping a level head and developing a veteran mindset while they still have plenty of youth and energy left.

Yeah they have done fantastic in the draft. I remember people thought Westbrook was a horrible pick and a lot of people had doubts about Jeff Green and we all know how that turned out. The front office deserves a ton of credit and praise.

I love KD. He'll be 26 when this extension is up. Think about that. We have yet to see the best this kid will be. The NBA is in good hands for the next 10years. Lots of great young players to take the reins when Kobe hangs up the Adidas.
