After being named the top franchise in sports last year by ESPN the Magazine in their annual Ultimate Standings, the Thunder have slipped to No. 4 in the 2013 edition.
It’s not No. 1, but No. 4 in all of American sports — 122 franchises total — is pretty darn good. The reason for the drop is pretty obvious: Russell Westbrook got hurt and the team didn’t experience the same postseason success as the season before.
