3. If this is the end, Sefolosha’s career in OKC was ___________.
Mayberry: Highly successful. He came to the city as a relative unknown. But he blossomed into one of the league's best perimeter defenders. Along the way, he helped the Thunder become an elite defensive team and a championship caliber squad. He had a great run.
Slater: Productive. Everyone knows about his defensive importance, but Thabo actually had some solid offensive years. Shot 44 percent from deep two seasons ago. Made 108 threes last season. Had some big games and came up huge in important moments. Turned the 2012 Western Conference Finals with his defense on Tony Parker. Just seemed to lose it this season, for whatever reason. But Sefolosha should be remembered fondly in OKC.
Tramel: Memorable. He's one of those guys who shouldn't be forgotten if the Thunder ever wins an NBA title. He helped change the culture. He brought not just a defensive mindset but defensive ability to a roster that had none. I mean, think about it. When Thabo arrived, he took over a starting lineup that had Nenad Krstic at center, Jeff Green at power forward, second-year-pro Kevin Durant on the wing and rookie Russell Westbrook at point guard. Nobody was guarding anybody. Thabo changed that.
