And they are ready now? The same thing that happened last year will happen this year if the Heat and Thunder end up in the finals. The Thunder just play right into the Heats hands and are a horrible match up for them. The Spurs and Clippers would have a better chance of possibly winning a series vs the Heat.

No offensive plan besides ISOs
No defensive scheme besides reaching and doubling
No coach that holds everyone accountable

And GTFO here with that "doesn't pass to open teammates" bull$hit, Miami doesn't leave anyone open. Their rotating D is too good. Westbrook wasn't responsible for Durant vanishing, or Perkins, Martin, Ibaka and Thabo playing like shit and standing aroung waiting for Westbrook/Durant to do everything. Brooks has no answer for Miami.

If Pop had this roster, you would much smarter play from them all, but Brooks lets them do whatever. OKC needs a real backup PG like Calderon and a big man with balls that can score inside. As is, Bosh/Lebron will keep raping OKC while Durant/Westbrook struggle vs their D.

You mean OKC needs to get an actual starting point guard like Calderon, let Westbrook play SG, making a decision is too difficult for a moron.

So... let me guess. There are other teams that match up great against the Heat right now? We all thought the Thunder matched up well with the Heat last year, but that was debunked. OKC young players have a good memory. The Spurs used to whip up on them too like the Heat are doing now. And then the Thunder got their revenge. Regular seasons do not expose teams with .700 winning %s

Yes the decision, pass to Perkins, Ibaka or Thabo, all inconsistent role players with no offensive game. And no one is gonna leave Durant wide open, not that he even needs to be assisted when he creates on his own.

Their issue is a team problem, team ball and body movement. You can put CP3 in there and he would struggle vs this Heat defense too. One guy isn't gonna magically fix these flaws, everyone needs to be held accountable. The coach first and foremost that allows that kind of shotjacking and has no real plan offensively besides riding Durant/Westbrook.

Oh please you can't really believe that, CP3 on the hornets had David West who isn't half the player Durant is and who else? He made his teammates better because he knows how to play correctly, shooting terrible pullups is sure gonna make things better. You forgot about a guy named Kevin Martin who is a proven 20 pt scorer in this league who got 5 shots tonight, great point guard.

He's a great player who plays PG and performs as a great player. Going by your posts, you would think he hurts more than he helps...even tho that's impossible.



But, they'll never win the title with him playing PG. Especially without someone else who can help facilitate or command the floor.

SG who is horrible in catch and shoot situations

He needs a playmaking long-distance threat guard beside him. Harden is a perfect fit who can cover Westbrook's weaknesses..such a shame that OKC cannot afford him
