OKC did well with Harden/KD/WB/Ibaka but that was ten years ago. What have they done since?.
OKC followed those 4 great picks with RJackson, Roberson, Adams, Ferguson and now Bazley who looks pretty good. They whiffed on Payne, McGary, Jones and traded away most of their remaining picks. Considering their draft slots since building a contender they’ve still drafted pretty well overall, it’s just always going to pale in comparison to hitting 4 home runs in a row.
