Damn Howard got his swag stolen, Pekovic wearing the same black arm band he wears. I didn't even know he was endorsed.

OKC doesn't impress me. If the floor is spread against these guys they'll be beat.

And you must stay consistent on pounding their interior. You have to render Perkins useless, this makes them go small for long stretches and compromises their defense.

They can't go small. If they go small Collison and Ibaka will struggle against Dwight. Keeping Perkins-Thabeet on the floor is a big part of L.A.'s plan for success.

The other problem for OKC is their lineup this year. Last year they could leave Harden in and no team could matchup on D. This year we've seen great teams put Wade and James on their two top guys and they've really struggled.

I wouldn't mind seeing OKC in the playoffs anymore.

Well of course they don't go small on us, I was thinking about them against the Heat and other teams that push a faster pace.

I doubt they like that matchup with Utah. There was some trash talking by OKC earlier this year specifically Durant about that place being quiet. Oh young ones, you'll learn soon enough.

JO's funny. He says he's not interested in chasing a championship. is he implying PHX isn't a contender? At least say something nut sucking for your team.
