    If OKC wins it would be in 6. If Miami wins it will be in 7.

    One player can't win it**. Lebron is just as good as KD but better because of his defense.

    **NBA Finals Cavs-Spurs, Lebron was swept.

    If Miami has a chance is if Lebron drops 40+ pts, 10+ assts and 10+ rbns. He won't be able to do that in 4 games.

    I like the Mimai Heat, but OKC is too deep of a team. I say if Miami can steal one of the first two games at OKC they have a chance.

    Last year he averaged 18ppg, and scored a low of 8. I'm not sure how we would change, but if he plays selfish than the Heat lose.

    This isn't the same Lebron as last year I think everyone has noticed that. Last year he was playing just to prove people wrong. This year he seems a lot more mature and focused. You can bet your ass he's gonna be averaging 25+ pts.

    He was playing fantastic up until the finals last year and then went to poop.

    Of course hes mature but lebron cant win it by himself. As seen by a weaker than thunder celtics team. He played great but skinned by them.

    That was because Bosh was out with an injury forcing lebron to have to defend a much bigger KG. This took a lot of energy out of him (stated in interviews). Now that he doesn't have to worry about that he can focus on his offence. I still think the Thunders are the favorites, but I wouldn't count out Miami just yet.

    He wasn't on KG that much...

    Re: MIAvsOKC- OKC in 5

    OKC, how many games will it be? I'm honestly not sure, if they win on thursday then I have OKC in five, if not then I have OKC in 7.

    Lebron and wade are great and all, but there are a few stats that make durant a far better player than them,

    Production per 48 minutes of clutch time play-
    Points:
    Durant: #2-with 50.8 (irving is 1)
    James: #17-with 33.2
    Wade: #30-27.9

    Free Throws:
    Durant: 87%
    James: 68%
    Wade: 64%

    FG%:
    Durant: 41.1%
    James: 38.6%
    Wade: 37.8%

    3PT%:
    Durant: 35%
    James: 27.3%
    Wade: 20%


    Source: http://www.82games.com/1112/CSORT11.HTM

    Another stat that I saw on ESPN, when james is down by 7 or less points in the 4th quarter his shooting percentage goes from 49% to 43%.


    James and wade are classic chokes, they're two of the best players in the league for the first 36 minutes of the game, but during those last 12 minutes they fall off the face of the earth, the only reason they made it this far in the playoffs is because haslem bailed them out a couple times against Indiana and shifted the momentum. The thunder have one of the deepest benches in the NBA, not so much for scoring (where they're 16th in the league with 31 PPG average, whereas miami is 28 with 23.4 PPG averaged) but for their defense and size, it isn't a bench like that of the spurs but it still is an extremely formidable one, and when you match them up with miami's bench they take them up the floor all night long(remember when miami didn't play with the big 3 they lost to the wizards by 30).

    Add on the fact that the thunder are almost impossible to beat at home(as the spurs got a nasty taste of) and the whole scale tips in their favor.

    Btw, I forgot to put his stats up, but in all the clutch stats I put up westbrooke was better than wade and james too(I believe he was fifth in scoring, not sure).

    I don't think miami will be a pushover, far from it, I can easily see it going 7 games, but I think if the thunder play their game there is no scenario where miami is the winner.

    He was actually, it allowed KG to post up and score over the top because of the size advantage, it took a lot out of him on defense.

    However he didn't have to take a player as good as Durant, it very well might ware him down having to hold down Durant on defense, he may not be able to go out and put on a 45 point showing again. The thunder have other players who can cover lebron pretty well(as shown last night), Durant doesn't have to focus on him on defense and totally ware himself out, the thunders depth and clutch play will be the difference in the series.

    Re: MIAvsOKC- OKC in 5

    I disagree. I personally find that the problem is that in the clutch moments of the game, Wade is differing the ball to James. Though he has said, multiple times that James is the better player, which I agree with, it doesn't mean James should take the bulk of the shots. Better player doesn't mean better performer. Wade just hasn't been himself these playoffs because of this very willingness to differ. If the Miami Heat win this, it will be on the back of Wade. Otherwise James will have to try to play a team by himself and we all know how that ends.

    But on another note... Kevin Durant in the clutch is unstoppable.
