Well, this is unexpected. Prior to the playoffs, plenty of so-called experts and casual fans (raises hand) were predicting that the Golden State Warriors would steamroll their way to the NBA Finals with relative ease. With the way the brackets turned out, they would only have to face one of either the Spurs or the Thunder and most thought it would be San Antonio who would give the Warriors trouble. But as the games went on, that thinking started to shift in the favor of the Thunder as they got better and better. And now we’re here four games into the Western Conference Finals and OKC has smacked the Warriors to the tune of 3-1 advantage. Shows you what we know, kind of like how we all thought the Cavs would destroy the Raptors, right?
A lot of the credit has to go to Nike KD 9, uh… I mean Kevin Durant and the Air Jordan XXX, errr… actually Russell Westbrook. With the OKC big men providing the toughness, rebounding and defense, Durant and Westbrook have been able to score at a high rate especially at home. Durant once again wore the Nike KD 9 Cool Grey Preheat while Russell Westbrook continues to make the Air Jordan XXX look good, no matter how orange it gets.
