    Why Tanking is the smart and only choice for the Oklahoma City Thunder

    Why Tanking is the smart and only choice for the Oklahoma City Thunder

    Rylan Stiles (@Rylan_Stiles on Twitter) dives into Steven Adams' huge trade exception and his fit with the Pelicans. Also, is tanking the right path for the Oklahoma City Thunder? Well, there are two options, a fork in the road if you will, and Sam Presti picked the route that is heading for a championship rather than a dead end. The OKC Thunder have tried to contend, and it has failed. There is no savior coming in free agency. It is time to rebuild, and retool. The Thunder have already torn down their roster with Hamidou Diallo being the longest tenured player on the Thunder, and he has only been in OKC since 2018! Why the goal this season is to not win a championship, and more! Rylan Stiles also dives into frequently asked questions about the rebuild, answers them and takes shots at the Kings and Magic as well as a Toy Story comparison!

    Richard Stayman joins to preview the 2021 NBA Draft Class: Is Cade the top prospect?, Matchups to watch for this College Basketball Season, and more!

    Rylan Stiles (@Rylan_Stiles on Twitter) is joined by Richard Stayman (@MavsDraft on Twitter) to talk 2021 NBA Draft! Seriously, what a weird time line huh? The 2021 NBA Draft will be one of the most important drafts in Oklahoma City Thunder franchise history, so why not start the coverage early and often? The College Basketball season starts this week, with multiple big matchups littered throughout Thanksgiving week. Is Cade Cunningham the best prospect in this draft? Should the Thunder already be focused on fading for Cade? Who are some other names to watch? An under the radar prospect? by the way, how on earth can you evaluate the NCAA game? The two also took a step back to evaluate the OKC Thunder 2020 NBA Draft class with Poku and Theo Maledon, and you do not want to miss what Richard said about Poku.
