Who's going it all? Will the Nuggets come back? etc...

The finals is probably going to be the Heat vs Thunder. Well, that's what I think, so, what's your opinion?

Tell me what did Harden, Westbrook, Perkins, Fisher, and Ibaka did to the Spurs. Oh yeah nothing. Don't get me wrong Westbrook is a great player, but the Spurs defense completely scared Westbrook causing him to do no harm in game 1.


thats true the spurs do have a strong defense
but u no OKC just had a bad game 1
but im hoping that they will wake uo and win


Oh wow, Ginobili stomped on OKC in game 1.


lucky shot


One more question, where were you last year when OKC was knocked out of the playoffs by the Lakers?


being quie not trying to talk about basketball
and just so you know my fav team isn't OKC its the kings
but they suck so i like OKC


Lakers have won 16 championships and OKC bearly has one. Who sucks?


LA only one 6 not 16
and OKC is a new team soif ur talking about the supersonics then thats diff


but Perkins is bad (ruins the team)


go watch game 3 of OKC vs. SPURS


alright the next game in the spurs Vs. OKC in about five minutes, time for the spurs to win again and my dad looked it up when we were in this situation and no team has ever won a series after being 3-0 so when the spurs win this will you guys finally accept defeat
~manly man



first
OKC won so its 2-1 not 3-0

second
OKC is a new team
but if u are talkind about the seattle supersonics that a different story


It's not going to be 3-0, OKC is a strong too and will put up a fight. This will drag to Game 6 or 7.


ur right okc didn't just win
they crushed the sours
102-82
i say it will end on game 7
okc needs to win 4 in a row to end on game 6
well they just 1 so 3 more

Manu Ginobili is a huge flopper

but he is still an excellent player.
I do not know who will come out of the West, probably Spurs in 7, but I think its a given that Miami beats the Celtics. I hate Lebron, but love D-Wade so I'm a little bit of a Heat fan but I live in AZ so I am a Western Conference man fall the way. Being a Suns fan (I know, we suck) I hate the Spurs, but that does not make them a bad team. Age has done nothing to them and they continue to blow my mind with their experience, but I believe the Thunder have more skill. Therefore I believe that the Spurs will win it in 7 and match up against Miami in the Finals. after that it depends on how Bosh is doing. If Bosh comes back 100% then Miami loses to Spurs in 6 or 7. But if he doesn't come back like that then the Spurs take it in 5 or 6.

I totally agree with you.

Kobe still also had the tank in him, he's losing it this year you have to admit.

Give him a better squad and he'll have a better overall season than LeBron.

lucky shot

Shot? You mean SHOTS lol.

LA only one 6 not 16

lmao, since when the NBA was first founded it's been 16 champoinships.

second
OKC is a new team

And so were the Lakers, but you didn't take that into consideration when you said "Lakers suck" did you?


i disagree with the fact cuz age is a factor

It's not a factor. Look at how much work Jeff Teaque did to the Celtics when he's like 23 I think. Look at how much work Westbrook did to the Lakers.

Yes age is a factor, but obviously not to the Spurs. They had the best record in the League and had won 20 straight until the other night. nontheless OKC has spirit so i think they will take it to 7 games, but with Home Court advantage I believe the Spurs will win.

I was thinking if Jeff Teague gets to the lakers...he might be pretty good. And then a add some more better people for the bench and starting lineup.
but u no OKC just had a bad game 1

Going on the road is like the going against the Spurs X2 because of the fans. But the OKC fans are much more energetic and crazy.

Honestly, I think Celtics have a chance. Only if then win this next one though or else it's it.

I totally agree with you. Their stadium is always packed inside and out which makes it almost impossible for OKC to lose with all their fans being pumped up.

I was thinking if Jeff Teague gets to the lakers...

Oh God. He'll have a great season if he joins the Lakers, I mean he really doesn't have anyone up to his level in the Hawks and I would choose him over Sessions anyday. I think his contract ends this year or next year.

thank you mr.grammar


And so were the Lakers, but you didn't take that into consideration when you said "Lakers suck" did you?


they do
and the lakers are not a new team
OKC has been a team for like 8 years
the lakers have been a team for like forever

well hes not that old
the spurrs have more oldies


Yes age is a factor, but obviously not to the Spurs. They had the best record in the League and had won 20 straight until the other night. nontheless OKC has spirit so i think they will take it to 7 games, but with Home Court advantage I believe the Spurs will win.


even though im rudind for OKC i think that is true
hopefully the 20 game win streak tripup will slow them down


I was thinking if Jeff Teague gets to the lakers...he might be pretty good. And then a add some more better people for the bench and starting lineup.


see he agrees


Going on the road is like the going against the Spurs X2 because of the fans. But the OKC fans are much more energetic and crazy.


yah that true


Oh God. He'll have a great season if he joins the Lakers, I mean he really doesn't have anyone up to his level in the Hawks and I would choose him over Sessions anyday. I think his contract ends this year or next year.


the lakers need another good player so yah



The team that win away, will go to the finals. Now they are tie.

Anyone seeing the Celtic and Heat game? Looks like it's going to be 2-2. There threes are falling from all directions.

I didn't hear about that but I think they'll be alright without Duncan. Remember this season Manu missed a lot of games but they still kept rolling and were the best in the league for the regular season.

The Celtics hardly lose in their homecourt and so do the Heat. It's really about the home advantage in this year's playoffs.

they do
and the lakers are not a new team
OKC has been a team for like 8 years

The Lakers have a new coach and coaching staff, they lost all their good players, they don't have the same training staff so that basically makes them a new team.

He's reached the age of retirement so I really don't blame him.

that doesn't mean they lose their championships
plus new coaches and staff should be a good thing (unless ur mike brown)
it was his stupid falult for trading fisher and odom

He's reached the age of retirement so I really don't blame him.
