Best of Times: The Top 10 Thunder Moments From Last Season

With the NBA off-season still in full swing, there's not much to do besides think about how our team's season ended last year and what could happen this upcoming season.

Personally, I'm still stuck on last season.

I'm still in shock on how well the Thunder did.  Still in shock that they won 50 games.  Still in shock in how many people they surprised in making the playoffs.  Still in shock in how they almost took a stellar Lakers team to seven games.

As a Thunder fan, I find it hard to believe anything that happens this upcoming season could really beat how awesome and exciting last season was, apart from winning a championship of course.

Think about it.

At the beginning of the season, the NBA experts had the Thunder winning 35 games and missing the playoffs by a long shot.  In fact, one sports journalist had the Thunder actually making the playoffs last season and the community wanted his head.

During the season, Russell Westbrook ended any criticism that he wasn't a true point guard and would only hurt the team in the long run. 

When Westbrook dunked on Lamar Odom in the playoffs is something I won't ever forget.  It ignited the team and started the run that led to the Thunder taking the lead. 

But the number one thing that I'll remember about that play is how loud the crowd got right after he slammed it down.  Right after it happened, it took a few seconds for the crowd to realize what just happened.  Then the place erupted.

That's just one example of the best moments from last season.

Check out the others.
