OKLAHOMA CITY When is Ronnie Brewer supposed to get here, anyway?
It's kind of hard to wrap your mind around the fact there may not be a more-pressing question for this Oklahoma City team.
But maybe that's where we are as March approaches and the Thunder defense becomes more invisible than the lenses in Russell Westbrook's glasses.
Because if Oklahoma City can'...

Yes, the Thunder are still a championship contender, but are they better than they were 24 hours ago?
