A Thunderous Thought Experiment

Imagine, if you will, that the Seattle SuperSonics had selected Joakim Noah instead of Jeff Green with the #5 pick in the 2007 draft. Imagine further that, dismissing all possible butterfly (or larger arthropod) effects, the Sonics-then-Thunder had proceeded to select Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka, and James Harden in the 2008 and 2009 drafts.

How awesome would their team be now? Imagine further that Chris Bosh, Carlos Boozer, or Amar'e Stoudemire were to decide to sign with Oklahoma City as a free agent this summer.

That would be scary. Green is good, but Noah is a night train.
