    Seems that the Media is hyping up the Thunder this year because they put a scare into the Lakers last year.  Honestly I don't see it.  Unless Durant changes his name to Michael Jordan and his number to 23, I don't see a guard with no true big taking his team to the NBA finals in a western conference where you MUST have a big down low.  I see the Thunder as a 4 seed tops.  Not even Kobe could lead LA to the promise land until Pau got there and Bynum developed.  I am super excited to silence all the Thunder chatter around the league how they are the team that will challenge the Lakers.  Durant is good, but the Thunder lack a true big that can command a double on the block which means they play outside in.  Look at the top teams in the NBA, Magic (Howard) Lakers (Bynum/Pau) Mavs (Haywood/Dirk) Spurs (Duncan) Celtics(Garnett) these teams all have big men to command the paint.  I think that when the Thunder go East they will enjoy a lot of success but in a 7 game grind it out series the Thunder aren't going to make the Western Conf. cut.

    I  agree. The Thunder are horribly overrated. I predict them to have a 45 win season this year.

    Oh yeah, I would love to see Durant break his knee (twice) and try to recover.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
