A couple things. The thunder should have really tried to get a big man who can play with his back to the basket. That's what this team is missing, and losing Harden without acquiring that is a problem.
On the upside, yes, Martin is an expiring contract, which means that he could be a trading chip in a few months.
6 months, 3 weeks ago on Deal the Beard: What just happened?
The Thunder may not be a totally "complete" team. For example, they completely lack a post presence. However, it's hard to imagine any other team being able to keep up with them for 48 minutes. It's not just the pace that KD, Westbrook, Ibaka, Sefalosha put on you with the first unit, but you're looking at a second unit that's unparalleled. When the Lakers inevitably get worn out, what is their second unit going to do against Maynor, Harden, JonesIII, and Collison? The only move that would make them stronger would be to offload Perkins for a big man who can keep up with the rest of that first unit, because he becomes a non-factor when they really want to turn it up.
