What if OKC had of drafted Brook Lopez instead of Westbrook in the 08 draft.. not knocking Westbrook game i love it but imagine how good they could be? i know they wouldn't have a bench but still that's an exciting lineup.. what line up would you prefer?
James Harden (yes i know he does not start)
They are good they way they are because Westbrook does so much so even though a big would help OKC they needed the pieces as if and right now all they need is a defensive minded center. They also have cap space so maybe they can trade for Dalembert and save 6ers money.
I think Loopez was going to be a better pick,bur still a gr8 pick
tyreke couldnt play wiht durant..... he wants to be a 1st option.... westbrook is the best fit cause he can play good game even if he scores 10 points.... he is versatile and excellent defender
C - Brook Lopez
PF - Jeff Green
SF - Kevin Durant
SG - Thabo Sefolosha
PG - Ricky Rubio (I picked him because he's a pass first point guard, but you can substitute any point guard from the 2009 NBA Draft class that you think will fit here)
I think they'd be a MUCH better team. Lopez in the inside and Durant on the outside would be tough to stop. Then you have your do it all power forward in Green and a defensive minded athletic wing in Sefolosha. Add in one of the very good point guards from the 2009 NBA Draft and plenty of cap room, and they'd be a championship contender within one or two seasons.
