The truth is that no other team in the Western Conference has passed the Thunder in terms of talent. Many teams have made substantial additions, but none have gotten better than the Thunder.
The Los Angeles Lakers added Steve Nash and Antawn Jamison. Considering the fact that neither of those players can guard a soul, it really doesn't make the Lakers any better against OKC.
The San Antonio Spurs added no one. Their young players will be a year older, but still aren't as talented as the youth the Thunder has.
The Los Angeles Clippers have added Lamar Odom, Grant Hill and Jamal Crawford while keeping Chauncey Billups. That would help the Clippers against the rest of the West, but it shouldn't scare the Thunder who have the players to match any of those "past-their-prime" veterans.
This Thunder team has remained the best in its conference by merely standing pat.
