Pictured above: Three guys without tattoos.

Denver Nuggets vs Oklahoma City Thunder.

The 4 vs 5 seeds in the West are two teams of contrasting personalities: One lead by a crafty veteran coach, the other by a youthful, energetic third-year coach.

Both teams possess abundant speed and athleticism, both have an interesting mix of foreign and domestics dotting their line-ups.

One is the most tatted-up team in the NBA. The other is not.   

This is our stop.

Tattoo town vs Loud City! The Tats and the Nats! Watch your step as you get off. 

Chris Anderson vs Serge Ibaka.

Is there enough room on the floor for two guys heading down court with their arms swept wide like eagles... or jumbo jets, especially when they both possess 7'4" wingspans?

After a dunk or a block, the Birdman runs down the court flapping his arms like a soaring bird. Except if we were to pick a bird, it wouldn't be a bland colored one like a hawk or a condor, it would be a peacock. The guy has more ink on him than Vogue magazine.

Also sailing down court like a 747 after a dunk or block is Air Congo. Only with less ink than a worn out Bic.

That is our subject for today.
