    Interesting little fact I saw on ESPN this morning:

    The Thunder have beaten teams in this years playoffs that have been 10 of the last 13 NBA champions. (Lakers, Mavs, Spurs) and no matter if they play the Heat or Celtics, that will make 11 teams out of the past 13 that have won the championship. No one can say the Thunder had it easy to get to where they are today.

    Well, that's why it's unlikely that they keep all four. But technically, there's nothing that prohibits them from doing so.

    If it's the Celtics they end up beating, they're basically beating all the old farts. So much for veteran experience.

    Its not that bad. I'm more bugged by hearing "and that's #2 on James" midway thru the 4th every game I watch Miami play. The fact that he actually fouled out of a game beggars belief.

    Also, geez, they are allowing 4 steps now to the basket. There was a play last night that Parker looked on his way to completing a long jump rather than a drive to the hoop.

    By the way, watching Russell Westbrook elevate on a pull up jumper is a thing to behold. Nobody else can do that.



    Yeah, wtf, is there a line? Personally I would love to see James become the next Barkley/Iverson. Not 1, not 2, not 3... fucking arrogance of that.



    Nate Robinson plays for OKC :puzzled:

    +1
    No, but he is on the roster.:)

    Am I reading the graphic correctly, that Westbrook is unsigned for next year?

    You've just been awarded an NBA franchise and David Stern lets you pick any current NBA player to start your team. Do you pick LeBron, Durant, or somebody else? I've got LeBron.

    Durant. Younger and as good.

    Lebron is beasting. Basically carrying the whole team. Box score is comical

    I'll take Durant, so even if the team doesn't win, as an owner I wouldn't be left hanging by my superstar and be informed that he would be leaving for another team via tv show.

    LeBron has been unstoppable. Why can't they just give him the ball every possession?

    The Celtics aren't even trying to defend him anymore.

    EDIT: And the only saving grace of this game is seeing James dominate. No one else on the Heat has more than 10 points and the 2 benches combined have scored 6 points. The action has been pretty stagnate with a combined 21 assists and 21 turnovers for both teams. Just give James the damn ball and tell him to score.

    Maybe the Lakers can come over for some Southern hospitality. Y'all have had a 2 week head start. Probably fished out San Pedro by now.

    I think when I have time I will quote some of your predictions just to remind you of your idiocy.

    Celtics were shit. Terrible defense and shitty offense. Pierce hurt them. The whole team missed lots of easy baskets.
