Default Miami-OKC in 7 games

In all likelyhood this will be the Finals, how do you see it playing out?

Westbrook-Chalmers
Harden-Wade
Durant-LeBron
Ibaka-Bosh
Perkins-Anthony

Mohammed-Pittman
Aldrich-Curry
Collison-Haslem
Sefolosha-Miller
Cook-Battier
Maynor-Cole

I'd have to see them play this year and see how they match up. Both teams are solid and both learned a lot from last year's playoffs. I'm on the fence in this one.

I'd give the edge to Miami because young teams like the Thunder don't win championships normally. Unless you're Magic Johnson, you kinda have to be stepped on a few times.

I think it will depend on how well the Thunder bigs play. If Ibaka/Perkins/Collison can outhustle the Miami bigs it will be a long series.

This.
The Thunder are not the well-oiled machine that Dallas was during last season's playoffs. Yes, they got more experienced, and will probably make it to the Finals(shouldn't say probably. Who is their best competition? The Clippers?), but I just don't see it ending pretty.

I'd say Miami in 5- it would be similar to last year's ECF. Thunder would blow the Heat out in one game, but Miami would prove to be the superior team in the other four.

Default Re: Miami-OKC in 7 games

OKC has a ton of young talent but they still haven't come close to meshing. I don't know that they will. But if they make it this far it means they will have put a few things together. I still don't see them beating Mia though. Mia in 5. Possibly 6 depending on how home court works out.

Lebron always shuts down Durant. Without Durant, OKC is nothing. Russell westbrick is a scrub.

LeBron would destroy Durant, and then Wade would destroy Westbrick. But then you have a lot of good defensive talent up front with Ibaka and Perkins who'd stop Bosh for contributing that much.

I still don't believe in the Thunder until they get rid of Russell Westbrook. The guy is absolutely dreadful at end of games, and he even showed against Minnesota today that he was ballhogging it today.
