I
think it would have been competitive. Just as entertaining, perhaps. But I'm not sure the Thunder, because of so much inexperience, could have beaten them.

On potential free agent signings or trades in the offseason:

Listening to [Thunder GM Sam] Presti discuss the future and analyzing his statements, it sounds like he'll stand pat and not make many moves this summer. On one hand, it makes sense 1) since there is little room on the roster and in the rotation and 2) the front office has to always be mindful of keeping costs down to retain its core. But on the other hand, if there is a guy out there better than a current player, why not go after him? Guys like Tayshaun Prince and Michael Redd are getting older, and there is a preference to let the young guys grow together and get better instead of giving up on them for more ready-made vets. I get that thinking also. It might take a little longer to get to the promised land. But the team will have a great understanding of how to play together if they're able to stay together for several years
