The first month of the 2012-13 NBA season has come and gone, and the Oklahoma City Thunder have played 14 games. Fourteen games to show us exactly what they are made of, who they are and what they will do in the coming months.
The Thunder are a very different-looking group than they were a year ago. James Harden is gone, Kevin Martin has taken his place and Hasheem Thabeet has become a valuable member of any NBA roster. The last month has been a whirlwind, and it is difficult to make sense of.
Some may say that one month and just 14 games is too little to be an adequate sample size for making any judgment about a team. Those people are probably right, but I’m going to do it anyway.
