Durant will definitely rise to the occasion.

Reggie Jackson will step up in a big way.

OKC beats LA with or without Westbrook. Book that.

I'm gonna go out on a limb & say that OKC won't miss Westbrook as much as they think they will. I think they can still make it to the WCF but Durant will have to be dropping 35-40 like Melo has been for the past month 1/2.

This is actually gonna be really interesting, can't wait to see who steps up for them. Jackson has potential. Plus this makes trading away Eric Maynor for nothing pretty dumb.

But MWP's not exactly there in the head, maybe he came back much earlier than first reported, who knows. Expected timetables for torn mensiscus' are 6-8 weeks.

Obviously I'm hoping he pulls a MWP and comes back sooner though.

Maybe Westbrook has a Ron Artest-ish recovery?

Depends on where the meniscus tear is. It's wedge-shaped, somehwat similar to a slice of pie. If the injury occurs in the "crust" area, those injuries are the easiest to recover from. If the injury occurs at the thinner part of the meniscus, those are the ones that are the toughest to make a timely bounceback from.

This is just the beginning of his athletic decline. The guy will be playing with Rose for the Bejing Ducks in the next 5 seasons.

No doubt. Just pointing out to that poster that although they havent had that major injury this year, they didnt have that fortune during the playoffs the previous season. That injury also happened to be a blessing in disguise for them since it forced them to play small ball.

U have a point cause he runs tbe offense and is such a big scorer for them but your talking apples and oranges when u get deep in playoffs as to what teams are better as the old Celtics gave heat a much tougher series than okc did.

Karma is a bitch for those stupid Westbrook fans who hated on Rose for having his injury.



Wellthis sucks for the league though. Jeez Miami's run for a championship gets THAT much easier.
