Presti Deflects Notion Thunder Didn’t Improve
(Oklahoma City Thunder general manager) Sam Presti was peppered with 26 questions for more than half an hour Wednesday afternoon.
The best was the fourth, the shortest and most significant.
“How do you think the team has gotten better this off-season?”
It was an inquiry that dismissed any preconceived notions and disregarded all pessimism that had been built by a relatively stale summer. And it forced Presti to think, requiring the Thunder general manager depart briefly from his script and spell out how exactly this team could be better when its inactivity primarily suggests it’s gotten worse.
“Well,” Presti said, “I think it all comes down to how you define ‘better.’”
