OKC can beat all three. They can all beat okc. in a 7 game series between thunder and lakers, thunder would win. They beat them this season, and if it werent for artest cheating (you know, its cheating when you hit someone in the head with your elbow), okc would have won in LA. They have taht LA monkey off their back, and they have all the confidence in the world that they could beat the lakers in a 7 game series. spurs, that's different. OKC was off their game when they played last but spurs have been beating everyone and even while sitting players. THey are solid and would be a very tough matchup. The hope for okc is that by the time they play, the old legs of the spurs will be more tired.

In terms of pure talent OKC.

But with matchups considered.. Don't be surprised to see a SAS/Mavs WCF.

tough question at the moment. a number of questions that are looming for me?

How will the Lakers play in Game 2 without Artest? Can they get away with using Ebanks and Barnes until Artest comes back?

How hurt is Tiago's wrist? We can say he's a backup, but Spurs fans know he is a key part of what makes the bench flow. taking him out is going to be a big blow to their rotation. Maybe Diaw will take more minutes?

Derek Fisher had a good night last night against the Mavs. Is this going to continue?

At the moment? They haven't looked good all year. They finished with a losing road record. You're not going to have a deep playoff run if you can't win on the road.

Spurs were the best team in the West prior to the start of the Playoffs and still are. Swept their opponent, and still have the most balanced offense of any team in the NBA.

I can't wait for the second round. Clippers/Grizzlies will be more a test to see if the Spurs really have what it takes this year. I'm hoping for a Spurs vs Heat finals.
