Depending on how you are looking at the Golden State v. OKC series, you are either euphoric or completely baffled. Color me baffled.
I never thought that OKC would look so dominating in taking the champs to within a game of going home. Don’t expect that to happen back at Oracle, but the Thunder have looked nearly unstoppable at home.
Not only does this series benefit the Thunder in terms of this season, but it also could be the reason that Kevin Durant sticks around for the long run. He is a free agent after this season and it did appear that he was going to test the waters. Now that the Thunder are a game from the Finals, why would he go anywhere else?
Durant’s one knock on OKC is that they haven’t really been that competitive in the playoffs for a few years and he wants to win. They are looking like champions right now and Durant probably could win a few more titles with this team. That’s how good this team is right now…I say right now, because things have also looked pretty sad at times this season for the Thunder.
But, Championships tend to make you forget that.
KD and the Thunder are poised to annihilate whoever comes at them from the East, but let’s make sure and take care of the Champs first. Golden State is not about to let them just take what’s theres.
