Logo for the DFR Audible post categoryThe most intriguing subplot to this NBA season, so far, has been the question of whether or not the Oklahoma City Thunder would overcome their injuries and get back into the playoff hunt. Now that Kevin Durant has publicly made some rumblings of displeasure, that question has taken on even greater weight and urgency. If OKC does make it into the tournament–they’re just a half game back as of this writing–who will want to face them, now that their megastar player has a chip on his shoulder and something to prove? What previously looked like a challenging first round opponent now looks really dangerous. They may yet fall flat–injuries have happened, they can happen again–but if the Thunder get in, it says here that they’ll be in the second round, at least–no matter who they go up against.
