2000 wins?

Computers are helpful in many ways. However, the ability to track stupid stats like that is not one of them.

// I'm personally more impressed by those teams who can rack up their third win when their star player had fouled out, they had been trailing at half-time by more than 10 points, the cheerleaders wore the away uniforms and a Canadian cold front was approaching.

You just don't see that kind of consistency any more.

Too bad they sold the franchise to a dickweed.

The Suns are the most successful franchise, in any of the traditional big four sports, to have never won a title. I'm not a Suns fan, so I don't know whether that fact makes those who follow the team happy or sad.

In the same number of regular season games, the OKC Thunder will have 99 more wins than that at the pace they are going, and that even includes their first year of 23-59.

If you consider that first year anomalous, and consider the last 3 regular seasons and so far this year as more representative of what you can expect from the Thunder over the 3,517 games subsequent to the first year, then (even including year one), you can expect the OKC Thunder to win 2,459 games, or 459 games better than what Phoenix did in the same number of games.

If the last 3 regular seasons, plus this season thus far can be used to project what OKC will do through 2,000 wins, then OKC will win their 2,000th game in game number 2936, some 663 games faster than Phoenix.

And yet they won't be making the playoffs anytime soon

Too bad we suck this year for anyone to give a fark.

And yet, no championship.

Good point. The current group will eventually retire, at which point the Thunder will never win another game because they have no players left at all. In about 800 games or so, the NBA will cease to exist. That's about 10 years. So basketballs will probably stop being made. I guess I had better buy a lot of 2025 expiration put options in Spalding.

Wouldn't the Seattle records count towards this though, or did they franchise move and leave the records behind a la Browns/Ravens?

leave it to me to provide you with a reality check. it would be impossible for them to win 2000 games in less than 3000 games. that type of winning percentage is unachievable unless you're the Harlem Globetrotters and play the Washington Generals every night.

Yes, they brought the records along with them when they moved.
