Kobe played well against the Thunder. Now that they have a big man that won't disappear in big games, and an actual PG, I expect them to be a huge threat. That said, I'd still say that OKC is the favorite in the West.
Off topic, ESPN is way over-hyping the NBA preseason. At least three separate times I've heard them say, "(insert team) gets a big win in this one!" It's the ****ing preseason. None of these wins are big at all.
