Oh no I haven't set up any fantasy pickem or anything - was just opening up a thread for smack talk. Thunder has a slim chance at getting past the Lakers - we have to win one of these first two in LA.

Can anyone beat the Cavs in a series of 7?

Look at the teams in the West and thier win/loss records for the season- what is the spread from the 1st seeded team (Lakers) to the 8th seed (Thunder)? It's only 7 or 8 games, meaning really any of the West games could go either way. Now in the East, the Cav's have about a 20 game spread.

True, Thunder ended in a tree way tie with 50 wins. The tiebreaker put us in 8th seed, but we are only 7 games back from 1st seed. The West really is amazingly close this year, while the East is embarrassingly spread. In the East, the Celtics have 4th seed with only 50 wins, and 8th seed Bulls are only 41 and 41 - Nearly a losing record but still in the playoffs. East 1st seed Cavs went 61 and 21, so that is a 20 game spread from 1st to 8th.

Predictions:
The only upsets I see happening (besides the Thunder) is maybe the Bobcats (Gerald Wallace is a beast) over Magic, Bucks could beat the Hawks (only if Bogut is healthy), and the Heat over the Celtics, because the Celtics suck filthy cack.

Yes Go Lakers...it's going to be a interesting playoffs! The main reason for the Lakers record was Injuries and the fact that they are the champs and everybody wants to beat them. Cavs will probably choke again...Boston I think have a very good chance to make the finals...Magic too...west is tight but honest teams have said that the Lakers have the edge over the Cavs...but they all have to make it there first. So we will see. Lakers 2-0 now Kobe 39 points off a broken finger...

these are the current injuries being played with

Injuries -
Lakers:

  • Ron Artest (Left Heel Bruise/Sprained Left Thumb)
  • Shannon Brown (Sprained Right Thumb)
  • Kobe Bryant (Avulsion Fracture, Right Index Finger) he also had some knee problems swelling, but he's good now
  • Andrew Bynum (Left Achilles Strain) he's back...feels no pain but little tinges
  • Sasha Vujacic (Severely Sprained Left Ankle) Out for the first round of playoffs
  • Luke Walton (Pinched Nerve, Back) bothers him but he's playing through it
  • Jordan Farmar (Strained Hamstring) playing through it
  • D.J. Mbenga ( Eye Surgery) Out...he's back has to wear glasses like A Stoudamire


P.S. I believe Lakers will sweep or at worse win in 5

And all those manginas have vaginitis. Fking Lakers. They definitely have a deeper bench than us. Funny you are calling for a sweep when they just won at home by only 3 points this game and game 1 by only 8. We are sure to take em down once or twice in OKC! I'm not saying Thunder will win the series - we really needed to win one of these first two - but we should still make it interesting.

Nah it won't be a sweep Kobe will have to take on of those days off he can't keep playing that hard 40 min is a lot for any vet so if the rest of the team doesn't shoot 9-32 again we should be fine but I still think Durant will pull one out that kid is nasty Portland Facked up when the y past on him for Oden. Then again they did pass up on Jordan for Sam bouie lol.

I wish you luck Coolhand...and usually I'd be here making jokes, but your team is VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY inexperienced at this point. You're in what they call "the deep water", so just try not to drown...don't worry about saving everybody. What I'm saying is, don't expect too much...you've done well enough just to be there. I don't see you pulling any games over on Kobe. But you never know...last night's was close.

If you get one, it would probably just be one. His first game they really exposed him...and I know he was nervous, etc. and they ate it up! But he did better last night.

We will see what happens in the Ford Center - I would bet it will be louder than the Staples was last night.

James Harden - butter through the season, but yep his rookie jitters are showing bad now. He has not scored a point in the playoffs.

No Thunder player had double digit rebounds in either game. Green shot poorly both games, and Durant was terrible in game 1. Game 2 he was crazy good from deep but weak inside the 3 point line. I really like Serge Ibaka - not a bad late round pick up - he's turned out to be a fairly solid defensive minded center, but we really need to pick up a legit bigman in the draft or through trades. Pau Gasol is just annihilating us down low.

Well we got a playoff win - hope we can string two together. Durant was a monster with like 25 and 19. Westbrook 27 I think. Harden finally came alive with like 18 or so. OKC fans should get some credit for pumping this team up - we support this team like we do college football. Its not just idle entertainment here - everyone is talking it up - heard a half dozen conversations going about it in Homeland today. Maybe the new will wear off eventually, but for now OKC is NBA crazy!

You guys needed a team. Strange you didn't have anything (until now). There are a few other states that could use something to root for as well.

Good luck!

It's doesn't surprise me I knew Durant had one on him even when he doesn't shoot well he still comes through one way one another last night he was shooting horrible in the first half but was still able to grab 19 boards and come alive at the end when it counted with a big block on Kobe and a few big shot to go with Westbrook's big shot sealed it and again the lakers couldn't buy a bucket in the start of the 4th which hurt us big time congrats to the Thunder they're surely a team to be reckon with in the future as long as they keep the current team and expand though free agency and the draft.

I hope we dump Nick Collison - dude takes up space and is often terrible, sometimes mediocre.

The series isn't over yet so don't get too cocky there Smack.

I'm not worried it's not a series till someone wins on the others home court and the way I see it we have 4 games @ L.A. and only 3 @ OKC, lol you do the math. Hey if you look at my posts I never doubted the Thunder, I know my basketball I don't just watch playoffs lol. Believe me going from a 23 win team to a 50 in one year wasn't by accident Durant is a beast, Green has been a presence since he left boston in the Ray Allen deal and the emergence of Westbrook and Harden are not a mystery. You guys are really well built team shoot even sergio Ibaka is pulling through for you guys it's crazy and entertaining and I see a bright future for you guys just not this year lol. I'm sticking to my guns when I say it going to be a Lakers vs. Celtics/Magics Finals IMO. I won't lie I wish we could destroy you guys 4 games straight but if you can make it intriguing with the same end results I'll take it lol Likes I said before Lakers in 6.

Very impressive win for the Lakers - they made adjustments to their game plan from Saturday, slowing down the tempo and really using those bigs more. Thunder helped out by starting off 0-13, but I was not happy about the officiating. I'm a bit hung over - really wanted to call in sick today.

It was a good run for the OKC Thunder it was a hell of a game tonight and the entire series and I'm sure they'll be back in contention next year. But Like I said before Lakers in 6 now to take on the winner of the Jazz vs Nuggets series.
