westbrook is better than wade at this point IMO. so it'll really come down to who's better between bron and durant if they meet because supporting casts are relatively equal between sepholosha, perkins, cook, ibaka and battier, chalmers, and haslem

and i'd take harden over bosh 7 days a week.

if thats the matchup the only advantage miami has is experience. which can win a series if OKC goes cold out of nerves, but at the same time OKC has to get through a gauntlet. they will have to play 2 championship contenders in the next 2 rounds if LA and San antonio advance.

now you may think that is a disadvantage but history has shown that the teams that go through gauntlets usually win over the teams that have easy roads. battle tested>walk in the park

if OKC makes it i like their chances. deeper team, tougher road will make them stronger mentally, and they have more shooters and rebounding and interior defense which is important.

but i think any of the big 3 in the west could contend but i think OKC would probably beat Miami most likely while san antonio and LA would struggle

getting deron williams will mean very little for dallas considering that team as a whole is deteriorating. if i'm deron i stay in brooklyn. both teams aren't winning anything but at least in brooklyn you get a shiny new stadium in new york and new uniforms to run around in

Vince Carter is so sad to watch these days. He can barely run.

this OKC team is the most talented team in the last 5 years at least, maybe since the 2004 lakers. Miami has their big 3 but OKC has a legitimate 3 all stars in westbrook, durant, and harden(who's probably the 3rd best SG in basketball), then they have another guy who's probably an all star in ibaka, then they have a top 5 center in perkins, then they have an elite perimeter defender in sepholosha

incredible

this is a potential dynasty. lebron has to win a title this year, or he may never win one. this OKC team is already ahead of Miami in talent and this will only continue.

Deron has already visited the new arena ans said he has picked out which locker his wants. Does that mean he is staying?
