Default Now that we are closing on playoffs..who u want?

OKC or spurs?

we can get either 7th or 8th as Utah has rough schedule and Houston is right there. I prefer to face the Spurs to OKC.Last 2 years Spurs lost to Memphis, and OKC in playoffs. In playoffs they miss that extra gear IMO

Probably SA. We have a hard time defending against Westbrook, and to be honest, Durant scares me a bit. He can get just as hot as Kobe can. But with the spurs, I feel like we match up much better.

LAC is also in that category.
I dont see us winning against LAC or OKC, teams playing with extreme energy.
So i would rather see SAS, but still the chances are slim.

I get nervous everytime Durant catches a spot-up

Westbrook is an athletic freak and we have nobody on the perimeter who can guard him but Kobe. He's a guy who makes a concerted effort to try to kill us, we're his hometown team

I would prefer San Antonio as well. Against either team or the Clippers, I don't think we make it out the 1st round. But a win tonight will give me confidence that we at least have the 'potential' to take anybody out, no matter what seed we land on.

After that ass-spanking, I definitely don't want OKC anymore. We have nobody for Westbrook. That guy will eat us alive in a 7-game series..

See, what I don't like is that for years, we knew that we had nobody to guard against the fast PGs of the league. We continuously get pgs that help us in ways OTHER THAN THAT WHICH WE LACK THE MOST: SPEED. Nash is one of the best PGs ever, but he does NOT HELP US WITH SPEED. He improves some of the other issues we had last year but NOT the most glaring and biggest issue with our PGs over the years.. It's like over and over the same thing happens, and we make changes to improve it BUT in the completely wrong ways.

Back on topic.. Who do I want?

Spurs or Clippers.. Both have Parker and CP3 so neither of them are much easier than OKC. Spurs I like their slower pace so that is clearly the answer. The reason why I bring up LAC is because they rely entirely on jumpshot. In a 7-game series, will their jumpshot be on for 4 out of 7 games?? Tough to say, but they do have a lot of depth and they're a fast-paced team.. so I would still take Spurs
