Oklahoma City Thunder

Vegas Over/Under: 51.5

Fromal’s Record Projection: 52-30 The Bet: Prevent lean over
As Kyle Wagner broke down for FiveThirtyEight, the inclusion of Paul George immediately reversed the Oklahoma City Thunder back to contention in the Western Conference:
“The top-5 of Westbrook, George, Enes Kanter, Steven Adams and Andre Roberson are worth 53 wins on their own. But CARMELO thinks so little of this Thunder seat that the remainder of the roster is worth -2 wins. That bench was awful last season, but young players like Alex Abrines and Doug McDermott may improve with an extra season with the team, and this season’s first-round draft select Terrance Ferguson has potential as a spot-up shot on the wing, and also the staff desperately needed last year. However, with Taj Gibson probably leaving in free agency, the Thunder will be sparse. But while their projection does not put the team nearly at the amount of the Golden State Warriors, as well as the newly minted Chris Paul Houston Rockets, obtaining George should have an outsize effect on the Thunder.”
The TL;DR variant this is that even without factoring in the upside that stems from possible internal improvement, the Thunder already should’ve been expected to acquire 51 games. And this was written before OKC inked Patrick Patterson–a power forward who matches perfectly with the other anticipated starting pieces–into a deal of a bargain.
Improving much beyond the 51-win benchmark is a challenging job as the Thunder try to weave in fresh players seamlessly. But after watching Russell Westbrook serve as a one-man show throughout his MVP-winning campaign, they now get to place so much more talent around him.
Expect big things.
