    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Their bigs could easily find themselves in foul trouble.... and Bosh and Haslem can knock down mid range jumpers so OKC bigs can't just camp in the lane ....

    Should be intriguing ...

    I think they are fairly evenly matched teams, with the slight edge going to OKC for their supporting cast and home court. It's all going to hinge on who goes into beastmode the most.

    I agree with Chris Mullins' analysis that James Harden is the wildcard (LeBron vs. Durant, Wade vs. Westbrook, Bosh vs. Ibaka/Perkins is a wash), but Westbrook is also a wildcard. If he can't quit jacking up jump shots when he's stone cold, Miami steals a game and wins the series. Although I think OKC is a much deeper team and has home court advantage, I think MIami's experience (compared to Westbrook's immaturity in particular) will make the difference. I'm looking forward to the series!

    yeah it was interesting cuz in the spurs series they went after westbrook psychologically making him fight through a shit ton of screens to get to tony parker on every possession which eventually made westbrook frustrated and made him jack up stupid shots and make stupid fouls


    imo most people underestimate home court advantage. 18 of the past 24 nba champions (since 2-3-2 started) had home court advantage. 75% is a fantastic odd

    i think ibaka could be a difference maker in this series. have heat faced a team yet in the playoffs with someone in the paint that is capable of blocking 5-10 shots on any given night? lebron and wade wont be able to just stroll into the lane like they have been. if okc can get the heat shooting jumpshots all night they're in with a great chance.

    Bosh's pump fake will have Ibaka fouling him every other play.

    This is exactly why I dont support any teams. You support a team when they have some cool players and are worth your time and then invest in it. Eventually you end up with this group of twats and have to support them anyway? No fucking thanks.

    I agree, its hard to support a team sometimes. I don't fault you for being a long term supporter, but yo, call a duck a duck... admit your boys are bitches.

    I will save the perspicacity for you with your gems of "lakers baby lakers" and analysis of lakers poor performance consisting entirely of "not worried" etc. etc. etc. We should all bow down before you bask in your aura of truly astounding basketball knowledge and biting, insightful commentary that consistently adds so much value.

    Also, lol if you seriously think your unceasingly uncritical lakers nut slobbering is worth reading.

    Surprisingly enough, you're the only one who is.
