Win Profile for the 2007-08 Seattle Supersonics

This is actually an old chart that I never completed, so the style is a little different, but basically the same. The Seattle Supersonics, now known as OKC, statistically produced around 22 wins, but had actually only 20 wins.

1. Kevin Durant had a rough first year. He should not have been rookie of the year. He was strictly a volume scorer. I think putting him at guard was a mistake. He can't guard the position, and moving to the perimeter convinced him to unlearn the art of rebounding. Big Mistake. Put him back to small forward, I say.

2. Jeff Green may never be a good player. He wasn't a good player last year.

3. There's nothing else to say, unfortunately. The Sonics had one of the worst exit seasons in sports history, and they were just plain boring.

I think your assessment of Durant is ill informed. I watched every game and I can tell you that Durant wasn't a very good player for about 60% of the season. However, where we disagree is that he really seemed to "figure things out" somewhere in the second half. He learned to use that stop and pop which he can get off on anybody at any time. He was hitting huge clutch shots and he was playing good defense. To blanket statement the season for Durant is missing some of the point.

As for green, I doubt he will ever make an all star game. But I think he will be a very nice starter in the league. Probably not worthy of his #5 status.

BTW, you guys are getting a very good guard in Luke Ridnour. He has gotten a bad rap in Seattle. I don't think he will ever be the star I once thought; but with the right system and a coach that doesn't play games, I think he can be a very nice true PG in the likes of 14pts, 7 assists.
