6. Oklahoma City Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder just don’t look right. They look like a team who have tweaked their roster a few too many times with personnel changes. They’re still meshing with a new coach, and then of course Kevin Durant’s on again/off again injuries haven’t helped. Somehow they’re still 11-7 and third in the West though.

That bodes well. Assuming the Thunder can actually catch a break and stay injury free, much of those problems will likely slowly iron themselves out over time. They still have plenty of question marks (Enes Kanter’s defense!), but with Durant and Russell Westbrook in full flow, anything could still be posssible.

Next: 5. Toronto Raptors
