The Oklahoma City Thunder ended up being one of the most fun teams in the NBA last season.
They didn’t have a presence in the playoffs but they showed that they are a squad to watch in the near future.
Fans all over the league are excited about what’s next for them.
Thunder star Josh Giddey is one of the people elated about the road ahead.
“It’s going to be a fun team,” Giddey said about the Thunder, according to ESPN.
“I think we have a lot of guys that people are going to enjoy to watch,” he added.

During 2022-23, Giddey was one of those guys that people enjoyed watching.
He scored an average of 16.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 6.2 assists per game.
Other players, such as Lu Dort and Jalen Williams were also wowing the crowds in OKC.
But it was Shai Gilgeous-Alexander who led his team with 31.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 5.5 assists.
Gilgeous-Alexander had a breakout season and there is hope that he only gets better.
If so, he could be in talks for MVP.
But one of the other players who could make a statement in 2023-24 didn’t even play last season.
Rookie Chet Holmgren sat out all of last year due to an injury.
However, he is set to return at tip-off in October.
That means that Thunder fans will finally get to see what their promising draft pick is capable of.
The Thunder ended last season as the tenth team in the West, which means they could grow a lot in the season ahead.
No matter what, Giddey is promising fans that they will be a wildly entertaining team.NEXT: The Oklahoma City Thunder Are In A Favorable Draft Position For The Future
