    Not getting playoff revenue last year has got to hurt a small market team like OKC. If there’s any chance injuries reoccur and they miss the playoffs again, they are totally screwed. Durant is coming off foot surgeries, and Ibaka stays with some malady. If healthy, they’re poised for a championship run, and the luxury tax won’t matter much. If not healthy, missing the playoffs while paying a huge tax bill in a small market could set them back mightily. A relapse for Durant could influence what they do with Westbrook as well. As great as he is, they couldn’t make the playoffs with him and no Durant. 12-10 down the stretch with Westbrook doing his best A.I. impersonation.

      Agreed. Another major injury for Durant would be brutal. The only advantage there is that it would make the fifth year the Thunder could offer in a new contract, a year that other teams couldn’t, more attractive to him.
