    It was a prayer, a half-court heave at the buzzer down three. One year ago, the Thunder was out of time and GM Sam Presti figured he'd try something, anything. So he traded for Paul George in a desperate attempt to keep Russell Westbrook in the midwest. OKC had been ravaged by free agency once...
