I work for a software company in Seattle. I make a decent living. Imagine, if you will, that my company decided to move to Minnesota and offered to move me there as well, but said that since the opportunities for software companies are not as plentiful as they are in Seattle, I'd have to take a 20% pay cut. In this hypothetical scenario, I'd say "thanks but no thanks" and go get a different job at my market value in Seattle.

In this article I'm going to preview the Oklahoma City Thunder, a team for whom the big question is, can you win a championship without a superstar?
As with part 1 (which you can read here), I'm calling them guesses, not predictions, because this way if I'm completely wrong, I won't look as stupid. Will I do something as crazy as amnestying Kobe freaking Bryant again today?
