NBA Midseason Media Survey: OKC Thunder results

The NBA released its midseason media survey on Tuesday, as several teams cross or are on the verge of crossing the official halfway mark of their 82-game regular season.

One team that reached this threshold on Tuesday was the Oklahoma City Thunder (18-23), who played their 41st game in a loss to the Miami Heat on TNT.

The survey includes 30 participants, which is broken down to at least one local reporter in each market. For cities with multiple teams like Los Angeles and New York, they were given two votes.

Let’s take a look at where the Thunder were included in the survey results.
