      A whole year and this thread finally made it to 100 replies.

      That’s some bandwagon shit if I’ve ever seen it.

      looking forward to all the draft talk, and how Chet Holmgren is gonna be the face of the franchise for years to come!!!!

                        Not an NBA fan at all, but I marginally keep up with the suckage that has been achieved by the thunder lately. Is fan support any good and will it drop significantly if they don't find a way to start winning next season? I could be wrong, but it seems like with inflation killing people's budgets (and no end in sight), people's willingness to buy tickets for a perennial loser is going to come to a screeching halt.

                          How could the clips picks be worth anything? They were gonna win title after title. Heh

                          Fan support at arena was pretty meh last season. Often was a bad product to watch. Had its fun moments. Overall was a boring season at the games imho.

                          Think this lottery is going to go a long way towards next seasons goals. Giddey, during exit interviews, said their goal was a playoff spot next season. Shai was asked if Sam and Mark communicate with him short and long term goals, and he said yes regularly, that it made it easier to understand. Couple good lottery bounces and I hope we are turning the corner asap.

                            I'm hoping this offseason Kwahi and PG both bail on the clips. (they won't, but I can hope). Then the Clips fall back to absolute shit through at least 2026.

                              LAC pick to OKC = 12
                              OKC pick = 2

                              Will it be Smith or Holmgren? Wonder who Orlando takes. Don't know their roster/organization well enough.

                                Magic are looking at Smith so the Thunder getting Holmgren most likely. Thunder's center position is probably set.

                                  Also getting a little higher pick at 12 is pretty good. You should get at least a decent role player there.

                                    Better be more than a role player. Maybe not an all star, but it better be a starter.

                                      Most of the Thunder starters are set. Maybe if there's a PF left at 12 he could start but if it is Chet at center the Thunder will already have Dort, SGA and Giddy start. Likely the 2 pick will start. Bazley will still likely start the other spot no matter what.

                                        The thunder starters are not a playoff team. You take the best player possible at 12 and if he’s better than what we have, you trade the other asset for value.

                                          You think any guard we would draft at 12 would start over SGA? Any Small Forward over Giddy? Most of the issue with Giddy and SGA was that they didn't play them because they tried to tank to get this type of pick. Next year shouldn't be a tank unless there are injuries.

                                            I contend they'd have made the playoffs this year if they wanted to.

                                              I will be happy with Holmgren or Smith. With 12 take a great 3 point shooter.

                                                Looks like it'll be a forward most likely. Right now I'm seeing them take a project player out of France in a couple drafts. But it's hard to predict this early.

                                                      Only way it would be more certain is if Holmgren was Australian or Spanish.

                                                      Banchero is a good player and if they’re smart they pick him. Good kid and good athlete.

                                                        Bamchero is in their mold more. Can't shoot or score a lot but can defend and pass and rebound well.

                                                            I think the Holmgren kid has a better head on his shoulders.

                                                                      Haven't been able to watch games because Hulu dropped the Bally Sports OK channel and it wasn't worth it to change carriers or chase streams for a tanking team. So I haven't had any takes.

                                                                      But it looks like an actual Bally Sports stream is on the way and I think (hope) the tanking is over.

                                                                      Getting a good pick this year and getting fucked last year still burns because there is no Mobley in this draft.

                                                                      At any rate the 2 is pretty good. I like Jabari a lot. Please please please Orlando take somebody else instead.

                                                                      Banchero looks pretty good, can dribble, create own shot and is a really good passer. The problem with him is defensively, watching video clips dude just has no instincts. Do we really want Kanter 2.0?

                                                                      Chet Holmgren. No. Hell no. That skinny fuck is going to get mauled in the NBA. And besides don't we already kinda have a guy like that in Poku?

                                                                      If Orlando is going to take Jabari, would it be stupid to give them 12 to swap picks? Would Orlando even do it?

                                                                      Comment

Outplayed Holmgren last year in a game. He is a couple of years younger than Holmgren I believe.

                                                                        Comment

But will be ecstatic with any of those three. I think the bigger issue is who to draft at 12. If we get Smith, go for a rim protector like Duran or Williams? Or go for a 3 and D player to stretch the floor? Lots of options here.

                                                                          Comment

                                                                            And if they do want to tank to try for a chance at that Wembanaya guy just go ahead and trade SGA. The Thunder cannot piss any more years of SGA away.

                                                                            Comment

                                                                                    Holmgren probably will be at 1 or 2. No way he falls below 3. I still want Holmgren due to his massive upside. If Orlando takes Holmgren with 1 I am happy with Smith at 2. We are going to get one of the big 3.

                                                                                    To me, the biggest question is who we get at 12. Hopefully a 3 and D floor spacer.

                                                                                                    If his contract wouldn't fuck up the books I'm sure Sam would take him, especially if getting a pick to boot.

May still be in the lotto next year but you have a team that will turn around in a year or two.
