2008 Draft for Thunder...

If you were the GM for the OKC Thunder, would you have taken Westbrook, Lopez, Love, or anyone else?

Do you think Lopez could put the numbers he is now up on a loaded team?

Would the Thunder be as good had they taken someone else instead of Westbrook? Your thoughts?

Westbrook is probably the best player from the 2008 draft, why would they want somebody else?

yea

I used to wonder about that question all of the time. But from his play earlier today, I'm pleased with Russ.

I thought it was a bad pick when they made it...but he has been arguable the best player in that draft class. The only player who would've made sense other than Westbrook is Lopez, which would be interesting because they would've probably drafted Steph Curry this year...that would be a scary looking lineup...but I dont think they are complaining with the Westrbook pick at all

Russ is a stud, but it's

Russ is a stud, but it's going to suck if they can never make the jump to the next level because of a lack of a really good C. If i could go back and change a pick it would probably be taking Noah intead of Green in the '07 draft though. Even though I love Green =(.

Bleh plenty of teams lack

Bleh plenty of teams lack good centers, they have multiple guys who can create and score. Westbrook is a stud and Durant is a superstar, they made the right picks.

Well the Celts picked Green, then we traded for him. We didn't really pick him
