Are you really comparing those talents/players? cmon dude get real. They had James Harden as well. That just proves our point, they are young and don't have the talent as most of the league right now.

Former Top draft picks? It's not like they are busts.

Ibaka, Westbrook and Durant were never projected to be as good as they have become. They were raw and lacked lot of fundamental skills, but the coaching staff obviously polished them. Cavs can do the same if they are good enough.

OKC was horrible in Durant's second year. In fact, at this same stage of the season, they were 11-36.

True story.

Westbrook is responsible for the major turnaround of this franchise. He became the team leader after his rookie year and OKC has flourished ever since. True story.

Durant was averaging like 35 in his last few games in college, Tristan Thompson and Zeller were solid players but lets be real.

Kevin Durant is and always has been the best player on this incarnation of the Thunder. And, I say that as a fan of Russ' game.

Durant is one of the two best players in the NBA. At the same age/experience as current Kyrie Irving, his team was even worse than the Cavs.

Again, this is a process. I realize some are just trolling, though, so no sense in continuing with it. Start having a logical discussion or stay out of the thread. And, yes, I do have methods of getting it back on track.

How can someone so short drain 3s so easily without his ****in feet even leaving the ground. The elevation of the ball is ridiculous.

It's just unfair how a 20 year old kid with no outstanding athleticism can do so much on offense. How? What? When?

Did you see the over the head and mid air switch hand layups he did at the end? He might not have the highest vertical but body control wise he is top tier.
