If OKC can have a 3rd guy step up, specifically Martin, then I like our chances this year. Harden was nowhere to be seen in that series.

Somebody obviously didn't watch the Finals last year.

50% chance this year. OKC is a team that exorcised 3 of their demons last year on their way to the finals. Now that the heat are their new demons, the heat shouldn't look forward to playing them again if both teams meet again.

Kinda hard when they're sitting out of the Finals this year and the Clippers aren't.

Even though Harden choked in the finals, he was a big reason they made it that far. OKC just has to hope Martin steps up when he's needed in the playoffs.

Heat can match anything the Thunder can give. They are similarly built teams, however Heat got better this year with their recent additions, while I think Thunder lost a lot in Harden. But, Thunder players especially Durant and Westbrook have shown improvements in their game. However, Heat might get complacent due to winning already, while Thunder already have final experience and will be very focused and hungry. I think thunder have 30% chance.

Thunder trying to beat the heat this year

So they gave up their guard James Harden
Started savin for a trade or great bargain
He gained stardom with Omar, J Lin & gay Parsons
But they Ended up taking in the lame K. Martin
