    Game 1 was awesome! Durant, Westbrook, and Harden are gonna be too much for Miami to handle in a 7 game series. Go Thunder!

    I get the feeling that the Thunder always have two plans:

    Plan A: Get out ahead and never look back.
    Plan B: If not, let opponent be up by about 10-15, then come back using KD.

    Seems legit. :D

    Plan C: Stay at least within 15 points by the 4th quarter and watch Lebron fall apart. How was his percentage in Game 1 Q4? :awesome:

    Take LeBron off Durant. Nice idea.

    Whilst watching, I could help but think about Durant being 2m tall and an arm span of 100m. :lol:
    He owns shit though.

    Durant demanded to guard Lebron. No way Lebron wants that kind of pressure by demanding to guard Durant.

    Also, how Durant only has 10 shots the first 3 quarters just shows how inept Westbrook is at being a point guard. You have the best scorer on the planet who is taller than pretty much anyone on the floor, who can get a good shot whenever he wants, and you can't get him even 4 shots a quarter? He should be getting 40 shots a night. It's also horrible coaching. Make that fucker pass the ball to Durant.

    Westbrook destroyed the Thunder. Horrible coaching, too. Either move him to a shooting guard or force him on the bench. You have the best scorer on the planet taking like 20 shots a night only. Plus you're sitting Durant when he gets in foul trouble! I'll never understand sitting people with 5 fouls. Sitting them is the same thing as them fouling out, except it's worse because they haven't actually fouled out yet. You destroy their potential to maximize their minutes. There were a few close games where Durant only played 39 minutes that they lost and that cost them the championship.

    Damn right.

    Much like how the Heat went down last year and fought back this year, I'm scared that the Thunder will do exactly what the Heat just did, or may do so in a couple of years time. Also, the fans are ridiculous, they're all 'heart broken' when Durant breaks down crying, yet gave Bosh a fuck load of shit when he cried after the defeat to Dallas. Ugh.

    As a Lakers hater and a Nash supporter, I don't know what to do right now.

    Well the way I see it, if this Lakers trade will help the Western Conference deprive the Heat of another ring should they get into the Finals again, so be it.

    Two 7-footers, Artest, Kobe, and Nash. Good game. Well, only if Mike Brown let's Nash pick and roll 24/7.

    Pretty much this.

    Lakers Heat Finals - Lakers in 7.

    If Dwight ends up in Brooklyn, it will be a Lakers Nets finals. Nets in 6.

    Looking at that team (if Dwight is there) - they look too good. DWill Joe Johnson Gerald Wallace and Superman? Crazy.
