Contenders?

I ran into  THIS article [link fixed] today from the Bleacher Report talking about the Lakers and their key bench players.  The most interesting part wasn't the analysis, but the author claiming that "an argument can me made" for the Oklahoma City Thunder as championship contenders this year (though he admits they should still be considered second-tier for now).  That made me wonder:  What is that argument?  Today seems like the right day to ask.

Can anyone, anywhere, think of cogent reasons why the Thunder should be considered a threat for the title in 2010-11?  If so, please share them below because I must admit, I'm stumped.
