    Lol i have been hating OKC’s annoying athletic teams the entire Harden era.

    They have always kicked the Rockets ass.

    Knee jerk thread. We would wipe those guys out with EG and some rest. Harden aint gonna slump forever.

    They lose 4 to nothing in playoffs to us

    No chance for Rockets to go to NBA Finals.

    I'd be surprised if either of these teams have the same roster after the deadline.

    I understand the worry. That UN lineup is no fvcking joke. But I think we'd win in 5. They've got too many players who are wet behind the ears, especially with regard to playoff experience.

    Could also mean we're 3 seed, which is not bad either.

    Yeah, if they end up selling a couple of their parts I think they drop out of the playoff race. But if they keep it together, there's no reason why they couldn't stay at 7 or get the 6 in the West. Mavs are skidding, and after January the Thunder schedule is pretty much a cakewalk.

    be fair brah and be reasonable, would you pay additional 50 millions and refs wont even count or review the made dunk? and they cheated tilman already 2 years in a row in the playoffs?
    so how does it makes sense to pay 30-50 additional millions to win it all and you know you aint winning it at all?

    Vs OKC in an NCAA championship game, or in an 1 and done game, I'd be scared. But this is the NBA, in a series, OKC will get undone by hammies.

    OKC is a fraud, came up short vs. Lakers without both stars (AB and Lebron out). Kuzma obliterated them.

    Paul could not contain or out score Rondo - 3rd leading scorer on Thunder yet again. Where are the CP3 pom poms today?

    Dunno what all this OKC hype is about based off one game and 1-1 season split but since we are on the topic of comparing teams. Anyone noticed the Bucks and how they haven’t beaten any playoff or champions ship contender type team? Soft schedule and their losses are all playoff teams. Talk about pretenders. But the media, nba, and sponsors choose who to hype up.

    Tf, did they not beat the Lakers? They beat us. They crushed the Clippers. They’ve beaten several playoff teams. Idk why people choose to just make stuff up on here like there’s no one here who doesn’t pay attention to the rest of the league or know how to use Google...
