Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our pre-2021-22 revision of our top 50 Oklahoma City Thunder of all-time.
As for all of our top 50 players in basketball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NBA.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Please note, that this is our first revision in two years, and as such, players with significant achievements in 2019-20 are reflected here.
As always, we present our top five immediately, though nothing has changed in this upper-tier.
2. Gary Payton
3. Kevin Durant
4. Shawn Kemp
5. Jack Sikma
You can find the entire list here.
There are two new entries, and moderate increases, and again, remember this is indicative of the last two years.
Steven Adams, who is now with New Orleans, inched up one spot to #16.
Chris Paul, who was only with OKC for one year in 2019-20, and was a Second Team All-NBA Selection enters at #43.
Current OKC star, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, debuts at #46.
We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
