The OKC Thunder are entering a season filled with high expectations and a general buzz around the team.
With those expectations come an exciting journey, but some parts of that path will be more exciting than others. That’s easy to quantify from game to game or by viewing exciting stretches of the schedule.
What will be the most exciting lineups at Mark Daigneault’s disposal for the OKC Thunder this season?
But what about during the games themselves?
The Thunder have a unique mix of players, but for the most part, the age will remain the same. Despite some veteran additions, the OKC Thunder will still be a young team next season.
Those young players may not be ready to compete for a championship quite yet, but they will provide for one of the most exciting Thunder seasons, perhaps ever. While it was unexpected when the Thunder made their rise last season, no one will take the team lightly in 2023-24.
But with so many exciting pieces both added and returning, Oklahoma City has a chance to throw out plenty of unique lineups. Head coach Mark Daigneault has not shied away from that in his three seasons at the helm.
As the OKC Thunder continue to prioritize development but make strides toward contention, the lineups Daigneault puts on the floor next season should be intriguing. But of the many lineups that will touch the court in the Thunder’s next 82 games, which ones will be the most exciting?
