KD only struggles with physically strong defenders like Artest. Artest had about 20 pounds over Durant, whilst Battier weighs 10 pounds less then Durant.

This will be a close series.
Everybody was saying the same shit over and over again about how Nuggetz were gonna stop him.

Kevin Durant's career averages against Memphis (13 games):

ummm....Tony Allen played all four games vs Thunder and there a video on YouTube I think it's called Tony Allen vs Kevin Durant and they show how Tony Allen defense frustrated KD.

Do people forget the Grizzlies beat the Thunders 3 times int he regular season? sure each game was incredibly close, but I'm not counting the Grizz out.

Didn't they have Rudy Gay for those games? If they had him, I am pretty sure the Grizzlies would be the favorite tbh with you.

Do people forget that the Thunder had one of the softest front courts in the league with Green and Krstic?

lol durant has a major advantage with his length over shane battier and tony allen, not to mention he is the top scorer in the league with the athleticism of a 22 YEAR OLD

Should be a really close tough series. No way is this series going to be finished in less than 6 games, so we may as well just all sit back and enjoy.

The only thing I'm worried about is OKC's talent and amount of scorers they have. Whereas Memphis have a bunch of defensive minded guys, but really, without Rudy Gay, only one true scorer, that being Randolph.

Without Rudy, other guys are really going to have step up this series. No longer can OJ be the little ***** he has been all f*cking season, he needs to step and do something, anything.

If Memphis can keep the scoring low and get the ball in to the paint to Gasol and Randolph, then it won't be as hard.

Realistically, I'd go with Thunder in 6.
