Additions? The Thunder don't need no stinking additions. They've got Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook and #BEARDGANG charter member James Harden, so you can expect the Thunder to build on last year's 55-win season. Thing is, they probably don't care where they rank right now, because the way their expectations are trending nothing matters until the playoffs start. They're still a young team, yes, but my, look how they've grown. Not to mention when all is said and done, KD might have an MVP in that backpack to go with his scoring titles. —Russ Bengtson
