    Arnie Kander must have bottled the frozen banana cream and sold it to the Paul Allen so that he could supply it to his Seahawk and TBlazers players..

    I enjoyed it too.

    Nothing to do in Oklahoma when the Sooners aren't playing. The crowd was really into their first playoff games in professional sports and the players fed off of it.

    The Thunder Org gave out blue teeshirts for game 3 and white ones for game 4 and 98% of the fans put them on for unity. I was listening to the local Laker radio show Friday and they said that Lakers put a fan shirt on every seat prior to game 1 last week and only 25% of the fans actually put them on....most were not going to mess up the outfit they wore just to put on some scrawny t shirt....especially some of the starlets who were there to be seen and not there to watch the game:)

    Not getting to ahead of myself, but if Kobe is really ailing and the Thunder actually pull this out, it will remind me of two previous playoff series involving the Pistons....the upset of the heavily favored Lakers in the 04 series and then the 2007 ECF when the Cavs took the last four games after we had barely won the first 2. We were the supposed better team, but we let Lebron and Boobie take us apart, just as Durant and Westbrook are doing to the Lakers... if the Lakers win, please strike this paragraph from the archives...:)

    If OKC does pull this off, it would be historic. Zenmaster's first playoff series loss after taking game 1. It would be even a bigger upset than the Warrior-Dallas series a few years back. It all depends on Game 5. Must-win for OKC.

    you know what i'm comparing this too... the pistons of 87? when the celtics would beat us at home but we'd run them out of the gym at the silverdome. The lakers better win it this year because as the Spurs and Lakers are ending there power hold over the west the new kids on the block are getting there feet wet and unless some major shakeup with players happens this summer the power in the west is going to be centered in Oklahoma moving forward the next few years.

    3 - 2.

    And they still don't have an answer for him. Mavs are in this series as long as someone else other than DIrk can show up. Tonight it's Caron.

    Thunder down big at the half.....unless there is a comeback, they have to hope for a game 7 (if they can recover to get 6).

    LOL @ JR Smith calling out "other Nuggets players" for being selfish.

    Chauncey and AA are men among morons.

    What makes them so special? Chauncey better figure out how to handle Deron, or at least match him. He's playing like the best PG in the league.

    JR Smith goes over 20, the Nuggets win. They're at home, so I'm thinking they can take Game 5.

    The Suns intrigue me if they can get Lopez back for Round 2. Gives them a legit center presence. Them versus the Mavs/Spurs will be a really good series I'm thinking.

    It increased scoring, so Stern's cool with it.

    Glad to see Dallas has come to play!

    As vulnerable as Los Angeles is, doesn't look like any of these teams in the West are capable of beating them in a series.

    So Carlisle finally puts Beaubois in the game and he gets to the bucket with ease. The last thing the Mavs need is someone in the lineup who doesnt shoot jumpshots.

    Not sure what DIrk is doing, besides looking unclutch.
