The NBA playoffs are just around the corner, and it looks like this could be the first round series to watch.
No other team has surprised as much as the Oklahoma City Thunder. This has to do greatly with NBA leading scorer Kevin Durant—a phrase that will become common in the future.
Durant has put the young Thunder on his back, and he has carried them all the way to the No. 8 seed.
Unfortunately that means their reward is Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Lakers are coming off an NBA Championship, and they want more.
Kobe Bryant, Lamar Odom, Ron Artest, Pau Gasol, Derek Fisher, and Andrew Bynum—when healthy—make up the best six man rotation in the league, and the Thunder are certainly going to have their hands full.
As always I want to hear your opinions, so please speak up.
