Since their arrival in Oklahoma City, the Thunder has experienced success on an unprecedented level. After a rough inaugural season, the Thunder made the playoffs in only their second year of existence.

Fast forward eight seasons, and the Thunder currently has a total of 39 postseason wins. Since making the playoffs in their second season, Oklahoma City has had a playoff berth every year but one, which was largely due to Kevin Durant being injured for most of the season.

After being in the league for such a short time, the Thunder has made their mark on the NBA in rapid fashion. Oklahoma City has made it to the Western Conference Finals four times, winning it once, which led to them making it the NBA Finals where they lost to the Miami heat.

Plenty of so-called experts believe the Thunder will struggle to make the playoffs, but do not be surprised if they finish in the upper half of the Western Conference as has become the norm.
