Starting Five: Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka, Kendrick Perkins

There are a lot of good reasons that Harden came off the bench for the Thunder last year and it's true that having his scoring available for the second unit is useful. But this is a video game, and running out this high octane starting lineup can put an opponent down before they even knew what hit them. Oklahoma City might have fallen to Miami in the Finals last season, but their unvarying pick-and-rolls and isolation sets are made for the player who loves taking it to the cup or shooting from long range.
