"You just can't take it for granted," Oklahoma City general manager Sam Presti said. "It's really, really hard to win games in the NBA, especially the Western Conference, the way it is now."
"I think our focus right now is on the team that we have," Presti said. "It's going to be a different iteration of Thunder team than we've seen over the last several years. But I would just say that we're going to take a very long view to make sure that we're putting ourselves in position to have a long run of success in Oklahoma City as we possibly can and not shortcut that process."
