OKC Thunder have a well-rounded roster
Aside from the usual suspects Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Chet Holmgren, and the red-hot shooting of Isaiah Joe, the OKC Thunder have so many more quality guys on their roster who are ready to be relied upon within the offensive and defensive systems every game.
Nine of the 11 players who saw action against the Chicago Bulls made at least one field goal as five players for the Thunder posted double-digit scoring numbers: Gilgeous-Alexander, Holmgren, Giddey, Joe, and Kenrich Williams.
Kenrich Williams—known more for his hustle than his scoring—notched 13 points on a hyper-efficient 5-for-6 shooting, providing a much-needed boost off the bench. His presence on the floor has always been crucial for the team, as he is a solid shooter, does his job on both ends and goes to his spots to complement the team.
The same traits can be said of the other Thunder guys, such as Lu Dort, Cason Wallace, Jaylin Williams, Aaron Wiggins, and Vasa Micic. Every player who played in the game for the Thunder ended with a positive plus-minus, a sign of a potent team from top to bottom.
The league is star-centric, but the Thunder looks to redefine it with a team of players who understand their roles and the hierarchy within the squad. OKC proved why their rebuild, from top to bottom of the roster, has been effective through the years.
