@Thunderbuzzy Absolutely. Part of the reason I want him to get this kind of recognition is that he took such a beating during and after last year's playoffs. All of our guys have improved, and as long as we continue to minimize our mistakes and continue to scrap on defense, we have a great chance of playing a lot more games. By the way, it's nice to hear from others who are similarly optimistic, yet realistic at the same time. Cheers

@Thunderbuzzy @Seviay31 I stand by the sentiment I expressed above, solely as the case for making WB #1 and KD #2, not to diminish any other players' contributions. We're splitting hairs, and I love them all, but I think WB should get credit where it's due.
I'd argue that WB should be #1, because this would be a very different series without his clutch buckets and free throws -- in games 1-3, especially. Without those, OKC might have been heading to Dallas down 0-2 or dealing with an 0-3 or 1-2 record after 3 games.
