The Oklahoma City Thunder started out as the Seattle Supersonics. There was plenty of controversy surrounding the move of the Supersonics from Seattle to Oklahoma City.
Nick Collison is the one player that spent a large number of years in Seattle and continued to be with the Thunder to this day.
Collison has been a stabilizing force for the franchise, helping maintain some good community relations in the city of Seattle. Kevin Durant on the other hand only spent one year in Seattle.
Durant reportedly feels very sorry for the people of Seattle, but he tends to want to focus on the future and given the amount of pressure that he faces an elite player, this certainly makes sense.
The team was largely unsuccessful in the first couple of years under head coach P.J. Carlesimo. It became clear that the team needed a number of changes in order to be able to move forward as an organization.
Scott Brooks may not have been known as an offensive genius, but he certainly got the best out of players like Kendrick Perkins. Reggie Jackson was another player that Brooks took from nowhere, making him a great backup point guard to an elite player like Russell Westbrook.
Russell Westbrook is the point guard that several people weren't sure he could ever transition into an elite point guard that could run the show. The team also benefited from the leadership role that a great point guard like Derek Fisher took on. Fisher The team was even able to develop quality leadership skills all around.
This is what allowed them to be able to face the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals three years ago. You have to be aware of how quickly things change in the NBA.
The team was able to acquire a number of quality outside shooters that were able to help the Oklahoma City Thunder compete against elite teams in the Western Conference like the San Antonio Spurs. The best roster moves are going to take time to develop.
Eric Maynor and Nazr Mohammed were leaders on that Thunder team that went to the NBA Finals. If the team had seen plenty of progress from Eric Maynor, they might have been able to keep him long term, but key players like Maynor would become too injury prone.
The Oklahoma City Thunder would have been happy to keep James Harden. The truth is though that they could not keep Harden, Durant and Westbrook all on the same roster.
The money required to do would have made it impossible for the organization to avoid a large luxury tax.
Brooks is no longer the head coach. The Oklahoma City Thunder will simply take more controlled three point shots under new head coach Billy Donovan. Donovan had a lot of success as the head coach of the Florida Gators. Donovan brought a lot of his trusted people on the scene.
He has the ownership group behind him as well. Donovan will have the ability to make important roster moves.
