Oklahoma City Thunder Team Info
The Oklahoma City Thunder are a NBA
team that participates in the Northwest Division of the Western Conference, a division that includes the Portland Trail Blazers,
Utah Jazz, Minnesota Timberwolves and Denver Nuggets. The Thunder are one of the best teams in the Western Conference, thanks
largely in part to having one of the two best basketball players on the planet in Kevin Durant. Durant has completely changed
the course of this organization since the franchise used the second overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft. Durant quickly grew
into a dominant scorer in the pros game, but has refined his game to become an all-around threat that can dismantle an opponent
on any given night. Durant doesn't have to do it along for this Thunder team, though, as he is flanked by explosive guard
Russell Westbrook. The organization took a chance by selecting Westbrook with the fourth pick in the draft several years ago.
The Thunder have ridden this combo to elite status in the Western Conference, and with a defensive force down low in Serge
Ibaka this team is capable of winning the NBA Championship as soon as this season. The Thunder reached the NBA Finals two
years ago and fell at the hands of the Miami Heat, and ever since they've been hungry to return and get that elusive ring.
Fans of the National Basketball Association love to pack arenas all over the country to see their
favorite teams hit the floor. Fans of the Oklahoma City Thunder are certainly no exception, and this is a dedicated fan base
that loves to travel with the team as well. If you've never been to a Thunder road game, then you're going to want to get
out to one of the best arenas in the country sometime this season to be a part of all the action you can handle. Root against
the home team for a change, and enjoy when the Thunder take the lead late in the game to earn a victory against a conference
