Well we haven’t done enough with the N.B.A. on this site, so here we go…
The Oklahoma Thunder have just run through quite a group of powerhouse teams. They took down last year’s NBA Champs, the Dallas Mavericks; they followed that with dropping the LA Lakers. And tonight they knocked out the San Antonio Spurs who had the NBA’s best record this season.
Maybe more impressive those three NBA giants have won 11 of the last 13 Championships. Now Oklahoma will face either the Miami Heat or Boston Celtics. A win there would make it 12 of the last 13 teams to win it all!
The way it looks, OKC will be the world champ in just a few more days.
Former Big 12 star, Kevin Durant and his co pilot Russell Westbrook are Oklahoma’s main men. They have young legs, great shooting and crazy great talent and in just two short years taken this team from nowhere to everywhere.
After trailing the Spurs 0-2, they came back and won FOUR in a row.
Remember, the Spurs had been undefeated in the playoffs up until that first loss at the hands of the Thunder. The experts all picked San Antonio and the Miami Heat to square off in the finals. Wrong. Looks like it will be the young lions, the Thunder, fighting the old guard Boston Celtics.
In some ways this gives hope to us Kansas City fans. If the small market Oklahoma Thunder can take down all these giants, maybe, just maybe our young pro teams can follow.
Low key with a couple big stars and a great fan base can make the difference.
It can happen. Great work OKC! On their way to their first world title and I think one of many to come.
