The Thunder haven’t started a season with a 6-1 record since 2004 when they were the Seattle Supersonics, but the early success of the team raises more questions than answers.
Some of those questions:
- Seriously though, what is the ceiling for this team? Is there any chance the Thunder are a title contender this year or are they stuck for now with the brand as “one piece away”? Steven Adams did recently say he liked the Anime One Piece, but hopefully that’s not some awful ironic foreshadowing of this team.
- Are we gonna be able to pay Andre Roberson next season and for the Thunder specifically—is he worth the big contract he’s due for or will that stymie the team financially?
