Default Better team: Knicks or Thunder?

Thunder's starting 5 might be better overall, but the Knicks seem to be a much deeper team...pretty close to me

Knicks

PG: Felton / Udrih / Prigioni
SG: Shumpert / Smith / Hardaway Jr.
SF: Anthony / MWP / Leslie
PF: Bargani / Stoudemaire
C: Chandler / Martin / Tyler

Coach: Mike Woodson


Thunder

PG: Westbrook / Jackson / Fisher
SG: Sefolosha / Lamb
SF: Durant / Liggins / Robinson
PF: Ibaka / Collison
C: Perkins / Adams / Thabeet / Orton

Coach: Scott Brooks

Thunder and it's not even close. The Knicks aren't even a threat to get past the heat or pacers. The thunder are a finals team when healthy.

Well usually I would say the Thunder. Historically. But looking at those rosters I think the Knicks look better on paper.

Thunder. Knicks match up well with them when we play because it becomes Durant vs. Melo and Durant has no balls. But the huge difference is the things the Thunder do well, you get 90% of the time, the good Knick team that plays D and hits threes you get 65% of the time.

Thunder. This is coming from a Knicks Fan.

I hear on how some People saying the Knicks might/would struggle to get a playoff spot in the West. Let's flip it now.

The Thunder Take the over in the East instead of NY. Would they be an autolock to meet the Heat in the East Finals?

Yes.

Not even a point of having a regular season for the other East teams.

Thunder better stars, Knicks better width.

Notice how shit Thunder are behind Durant and Westbrook and maybe Ibaka.
