It’s Oklahoma City’s turn in ESPN.com’s series analyzing each team in the 5-on-5 format. Covered in it was if KD will be basketball’s best player at some point, if the Thunder have the 4 and 5 spots settled, if they’re the Western favorites, if Harden should start and naturally, if the Thunder should look at trading you-know-who.
Correct answers if you’re scoring at home: No you don’t trade Westbrook, LeBron’s still the best, yes the 4 and 5 are settled (as much as they can be for now), no the Thunder aren’t quite the Western favorites yet and finally yes, you start Harden. Would you look at that — I got all five right!
Have a look and make sure everyone points out at once that yes, in fact you CAN win a title with Perk as your center because, you know, it’s already been done.
