We have a 2012-13 schedule, which means it’s about time I go through it and wildly speculate and guessculate on how it’s all going to go for the Thunder. Two years ago, I had Oklahoma City with 52 wins (they finished with 55) and last season I had the Thunder with 57. And I was wayyyy off. Not my fault though! If not for that whole lockout thing, I totally would’ve been right. (With a 71.2 percent win percentage, the Thunder were on track to win about 58 games in an 82-game season.)
With The Finals still fresh on the brain though, the regular season kind of feels pointless. Once October rolls around, we’ll go back to caring way, way too much about a random Tuesday night loss to the Kings. But 82 games will stand between the Thunder and another shot at glory, and it’s 82 chances to get better prepared than last time.
So how’s it going to go? Let’s take it in pieces.
