List RulesVote up the best Oklahoma City Thunder and Seattle SuperSonics players.

Despite being a relatively new team, basketball fans must know who are the best Oklahoma City Thunder players of all time. Up until 2008, they were still known as the Seattle SuperSonics. To make things a bit more interesting, this list ranks the best Seattle SuperSonics and Oklahoma City Thunder players together. So vote below on who you think are the best SuperSonics and Thunder players of all time.

With their formation in 1967, the Sonics won over fans in the Pacific Northwest with their exciting brand of basketball. By the mid-1970s, the Sonics were title contenders. With players like Gus Williams, Spencer Haywood, Jack Sikma and Dennis Johnson, the Sonics went far in the playoffs and eventually captured its first NBA title in 1979. After a down period in the early 1980s, the Sonics rebounded in at the end of the decade. Two of the greatest players in history, Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton joined the team and turned the team into a powerhouse.

When the team moved to Oklahoma City in 2008, the cupboard wasn't bare. The team had a superstar in place with Kevin Durant and after drafting Russell Westbrook and James Harden, the team was on its way. These are three of the best current NBA players and the Thunder at one point had all three on its roster. The team went to the 2011 NBA Finals on the strength of these three stars. Durant is already considered one of the greatest players in NBA history and still has much of his career ahead of him. 

This is a list of the best Seattle SuperSonics/Oklahoma City Thunder of all time. If someone is missing from this list, feel free to add him. Vote or rerank according to who you think should be considered the greatest Sonics/Thunder player ever.
