One of the biggest strengths for the Thunder over the past few years has been their bench. I mean, seriously, how many other teams play a 10- man rotation? Not too many. With the reigning 6th man of the year, James Harden, Oklahoma City has one of, if not the best bench in the NBA(With considerations going to the Bulls, Nuggets, Pacers, and Spurs).
