NBA Role: veteran power forward • OKC Depth Chart: Spot Minutes

Nick Collison aka Mr. ThunderSonic, is the saltiest of dogs in OKC; Collison’s energy and grit are always high, though he doesn’t see as much time in OKC’s crowded frontcourt these days (hasn’t played 20 minutes/night in almost 5 years); despite Nick’s limited PT, he impacts OKC in ways that aren’t seen on the floor – sets an example in practice, gives tough, mistake-free minutes when his number’s called – work ethic each young Thunder(man?) should adapt & emulate; when Nick gets PT, his job is to take charges, hit open midrangers and fight for loose balls; extending his range to three-point land (a la Kris Humphries (ATL) could give Nick a couple more seasons in the NBA; great veteran presence – will Collison stick around long enough to finally capture championship gold in OKC?
