Without them, OKC likely loses both of those games to Denver.

How is it irrelevant? So were suppose to base everything on these two teams based on two games in one week? Ok. So if Gallo matches Durant in the first game would it be fair for me to assume till the next game that Gallo = Durant? Hypothetical of course.

Whatever doesn't much matter. Never said OKC bench couldn't hang. Just said Denver had the better bench and I'd trust that over a 7 game series. Just like I'd trust the better team to win most of the time, much like I predicted OKC in 6.

OKC with the two best players on the floor and the comparable\better bench. Denver's only advantage coming into this thing was there depth\bench so guess were looking at a SWEEP!

One game isn't a trend. Two may not be either but it's a good indication of where things may be going.

I wasn't necessarily saying they weren't better. Maybe they are better but they don't match up well against OKC? I'm not trying to discredit your bench because Denver is deep as a team but in both of those matchups, Maynor and Harden absolutely killed your bench.

Don't forget that Afflalo was out for those two games, and he should be playing Sunday.

I'll bet the hooker I mutilated last week that the Knuggicks win game 8.

No, that's a fair price man. They are going for more than that. I may get them from you if you haven't sold them by tomorrow. We have 6 season tickets split between family members. I'm sure I'll get a ticket or two, but I don't know to what games yet, so I'm trying to find out. If I don't get one for Sunday, I'll hit you up for yours if you haven't sold them yet.

George Karl is a little ***** btw. Heard him and every two seconds he dropped a subliminal at Anthony. Nice guy, must be great to play for. (And don't think it's just Anthony, he called Ray Allen a barbie doll once, etc. He just got a big mouth). I get it the week after but now? Still? Right before your playoff series?

And for everyone saying how great the Denver system is, no team without an all-star has ever won a title, and no team in the last 30 years outside of the 2004 pistons without a grade A superstar has won a title, and those pistons had 2 future HOF caliber players in Chauncey and Rasheed.

I'll take Durant/Westbrook over greatness by committee.

Hit me up. There's 1 on the Thunder ticketexchange right now 313L for 33 (about 45 after ticketmaster rapes you with random fees). I'm thinking about grabbing it because I anticipate cashing in big on my 102QQ, selling the pair I mentioned, and still needing a ticket for myself. I might risk it though and wait til gametime and try to catch one of the scalpers outside or last minute change of plan type guys.

Even if I don't get a ticket, for the playoff they do the "Thunder Alley" thing where they put the big screen up on the Cox Convention Center next door, have $1 longnecks, and all types of games and things including the pregame/postgame going on right outside the arena so that's still always fun.

NM on that 313L, just went ahead and jumped on it. But the game on Sunday is at 8:30 which kind of sucks for people like me who have a long frive also to get there because you figure we won't be getting out until about 11:00-11:15, then I got another 1.5hrs or so before I get home, even longer though because I always stop at Chikasha Wal Mart and get groceries then go to Dairy Queen and get a peanut buster parfait

And i can't believe people are trying to even argue that the Thunder bench is better than the Nuggets

Why even say this? NO ONE is seriously thinking the Nuggets even have a shot at the championship (other than Hollinger)

How many teams have won without defense? And Knicks fans actually believe they have a shot at a championship

Homer prediction (4-0)
Realistic prediction (4-2)
Nuggetz have a very good team, they gotta be the deepest team 1-12 wise, but they lack a star or two to carry them through a series. We got a Superstar and a borderline superstar to go with a sweet presence in the paint via Perkins, Ibaka and Nazr. Our 6th man has been playing fantastic since the trade which makes the scale go down to OKC's side even more.

Nope, i don't think that either. There are as many people saying Denver will win this year as NY will win btw. So if you want to say everyone is delusional, i'm in.

George Karl said this new team is better because the new players are more proffesional, because they work harder, because they listen to him, etc. Basically everything he said implied the team before did not. He was being asked what makes this team special and every answer was a veiled shot at the last team. It was uncalled for. Denver fans i'm sure won't care as much (nor should you) because Melo wanted out, so why care. BUT there were so many subliminals - i didn't get it.

He has always been like that though, beefs and defers blame to players after they leave. He's not as bad as Larry Brown in that regard, but it's a pattern of his.

Thunder in 6. This will be a fun series but Denver is missing that scorer down the stretch that can do it on a nightly basis. But then again I could be wrong this is one of those 50/50 playoff series.
