Thorton would be starting for them.

Dude, the Sonics won't win 20 games this year. In fact they may make a run at the worst record ever. This is their roster for this season...


NUM PLAYER POS HT WT DOB FROM YRS

4 Nick Collison C-F 6-10 255 10/26/1980 Kansas 3

35 Kevin Durant F 6-9 215 09/29/1988 Texas R

15 Mickael Gelabale F 6-7 215 05/22/1983 France 1

22 Jeff Green F 6-9 235 08/28/1986 Georgetown R

5 Jermaine Jackson G 6-5 205 06/07/1976 Detroit 5

27 Johan Petro C 7-0 247 01/27/1986 France 2

8 Luke Ridnour G 6-2 175 02/13/1981 Oregon 4

18 Mouhamed Sene C 6-11 230 05/12/1986 Senegal 1

31 Robert Swift C 7-1 245 12/03/1985 Bakersfield HS (CA) 2

3 Wally Szczerbiak F 6-7 245 03/05/1977 Miami (Ohio) 8

44 Kurt Thomas F-C 6-9 235 10/04/1972 Texas Christian 12

25 Earl Watson G 6-1 185 06/12/1979 UCLA 6

2 Delonte West G 6-3 180 01/26/1983 Saint Joseph's 3

54 Chris Wilcox F 6-10 235 09/03/1982 Maryland 5

21 Damien Wilkins G-F 6-6 225 01/11/1980 Georgia 3


This has got to be one of the worst line-ups to start a season in the history of NBA basketball.

the only proven scorer is a retread SF that can't guard anyone, and where's the inside presence coming from?

38 wins?

Challenge for the playoffs? In the West?

C'mon, be serious here. Stop the infatuation with Durant and start to see things clearly and rationally.

I think Durant will get it. He is already the go-to guy, the guy who gets the plays drawn up for him. He has a deadly offensive game. If he leads the rookies in points (which he will), then he will get it. Al Thornton is a great great player though and could well push him, especially if he contributes to a Clippers playoff run.

15 Mickael Gelabale Some unknown.

22 Jeff Green Another rookie who should be solid.

5 Jermaine Jackson Some unknown.

27 Johan Petro A young big that is a decent backup.

8 Luke Ridnour A young gaurd with good vision and skills.

18 Mouhamed Sene C Another backup big.

31 Robert Swift C Ditto.

3 Wally Szczerbiak F Guy can easily get you 20 points on 50%. His D still blows but when was the last time the Sonics had good defense?

44 Kurt Thomas One of the better post defenders in the league and his midrange is money. The amount of playing time should still be substantial if they're not playing Durant at the 4.

25 Earl Watson Another decent gaurd, I'm not sure why he's not gone yet though.

2 Delonte West Another decent gaurd.

54 Chris Wilcox Another double double machine.

21 Damien Wilkins Servicable gaurd that will only get backup minutes at best.


So if they had a starting lineup that looked something like

Ridnour
Durant
Szerbiak
Thomas
Collison

That is still a decent lineup with enough scoring power and good defense and rebounding in the middle. Sure they may not hit the playoffs but they should be able to get at least 25 wins easily.

funny thing with the sonics is thast they have a bench which would beat most second units in the league:

watson
west
wally
collison
thomas


if you consider

ridnour
durant
green
wilcox
swift


the first unit.
