Oklahoma City joins the Mavericks, Lakers and Spurs for Western Supremacy

In an effort to solidify their interior, the Thunder have traded for Kendrick Perkins and Nazr Mohammed. Are Perkins and Mohammed an upgrade from Nenad Krstic and Jeff Green? Obviously a downgrade in offensive capability but a huge leap in rebounding and defensive ability.

Plus, the Thunder got some offensive punch from the acquisition of Nate Robinson. I think their starting five would be Russell Westbrook, Thabo Sefolosha, Kevin Durant, Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka. With Nate Robinson, James Harden and Nick Collison rounding out the main rotation.

I think this was a win for the Thunder. They got a ton better on the defensive side of the ball with Kendrick Perkins and made up for the loss in offense with Nate Robinson. With the obvious caveat on whether or not Perkins can play during the playoffs.
