He said it was likely that they will lose the series. Did you not read that sentence?

You are such a stark raving moron that it's beyond words. I called this series from the beginning and you were the one who completely misevaluated a team that you watch every single day. It's really sad that you have such a negatively biased view of your team which is no doubt a reflection of your life.
This is an accurate post but I was the one who was called stupid, a reverse troll, a homer, an idiot, by these morons who I am now calling out. Sorry, but when you act like that and you are the one who is wrong, I am going to point it out.
dude, seriously, you? You are usually pretty good. Just stop trying to pretend what this moron said was right.
you are stupid. That didn't happen.
Just admit you are a poser. A poser is someone who pretends like they know a lot about basketball.
that was sarcastic, you idiot, here was my very next post, look in the thread!
I told you guys that we were going to figure out this gimmicky Spurs offense. It just took a little more time than I suspected. The Thunder are going to dismantle the Spurs now because they don't have a plan B! You don't go from 120 points to 82 in one game by chance! #Thunder_in_6
We are going to win.
Okay, my work here is done. I don't like this board because the posers etc. who think that they are 'objective' are actually objectified morons. This series clearly played out the way that I said it would. I wouldn't care if you guys were just stupid but you are pushy AND stupid. That's really annoying.
It wasn't objective, it was wrong.
@Tronchaser @Barry Amenema
lol, you guys are just too dumb to be real.
Old Man Game was SPOT ON in his evaluation:
"If you watch what San Antonio does, it's pretty hard to game plan for that during the regular season, especially this compressed regular season. You're basically going to role the ball out there and give it your best shot. But similarly to how the D'Antoni/Nash Suns would torch people in the regular season and early rounds of the playoffs with their unique style of play, they always got ground down when they faced the tough competition in later rounds that had time to really scout them and the talent to hurt them on the offensive end. It seems at least plausible that could happen here as well (and I don't care about what they did to the Jazz that barely made the playoffs or the Clips with Blake and CP3 playing on one leg each or a leg and a half). "
*And for the record I 'liked' the comment at the time and quoted it and said "THIS AND ONLY THIS"*
Here's some more of JustinMIA's great analysis:
The Spurs are not unbeatable but it will be an upward climb. Their depth will present the biggest problem. LAL had no bench, DAL didn't either really. Spurs seem to have interchangeable parts everywhere and come at you with the second unit in the game. If/when Westbrook and Durant are sitting and we bring in the funky lineups with Derek Fisher, the Spurs will feast on our defense.
Hollinger's Evaluation: Unfortunately, OKC is about to run into a buzzsaw. San Antonio's numbers of late are video-game crazy: The Spurs not only have 18 straight wins, but they are 32-3 in their past 35 games. The most amazing stat is that they're 24-3 in their past 27 road games, with two of three defeats coming when they decided to rest their starters. That's the scarier part; when you take out games the Spurs tanked, they're record really starts looking good. In the last 47 games Tony Parker played, for instance, they're 43-4. Did you hear me? FORTY-THREE AND FOUR! If it took them 47 games to lose four times with Parker, I'm guessing it will take more than seven for them to lose four more.
*lol, um, he's so smart*
I'm a bit tired of people who aren't 100 percent flag waving homers getting called out as not being fans. You can be a fan and think there are faults with this team or another team is better. Nothing wrong with that.
*lol, except when you watch your team every day and complete misevaluate them then I would say that is the definition of 'something wrong with that'*
Bry Bry had really good analysis. I think people should listen to him. Go back and read, his insights are much better than these other posers.
Another comment from ElMexiThunder. This might be my favorite as he called me delusional when what I said would happen has played out EXACTLY:
@aise0603 @Jooseppi @bmuelle2112 I understand this entire blog is based on a specific team, that everyone on here is as much of a fan as the next one, but there's a line between a "Homer", and a "Delusional Homer". Admitting that another team thats playing as good as basketball as us and could beat us isn't being a poser. Its being a realist

Even though i think the Spurs are going to win it sucks being on "Spurs Island" all alone on here so i'll go Thunder in 6 being my official pick lol steal game 1 or 2 and sweep all 3 home games
Comment from JustinMIA 10 days ago
The Spurs beat us two of three times this season without Manu Ginobili, they've won all their playoff games, have some ridiculous winning % in the last couple months. They score more per possession than us, and allow fewer points per possession than us. They have home court advantage. Thunder are underdogs in this series. It's likely they will lose the series. Can they win? Of course. But there's nothing wrong with being objective.
*lol, spot on analysis*

@alse0603, I've said this before. If the Thunder don't win any of the first 2 games, then i trully believe we'll lose this series in 6, or 7 games. If we do steal one of the first 2, then we win in 6, or 7. If we don't come out ready to play, we lose in 5, if the Spurs trully run out of gas, we win in 5. If somehow we play some of the most incredible basketball, and manage to beat the Spurs, coming back from being down 0-2, i will own up, and apologize for "having doubts", and for being a "Poser", then you can gloat about how you were right all along. That make you feel better buddy?
Exactly. I think you can win at any level in the world exclusively with fantastic, pass first offense except the NBA. There are only a select few guys in the world whose athleticism and length combined with amazing iso scoring that can overcome that. The Thunder and Heat both have that in spades and I don't think the Spurs can win a series with either one of those teams.

@ElMexiThunder @aise0603 @ILikePancakes @Legendary_dork
That was an excellent team.
Gimmicky is a bit strong but I kept getting attacked because I was new so rather than be submissive, I went the other way.
Don't get me wrong, Passing is a really nice weapon to have but to win the championship, you are going to need either an elite iso scorer or the suffocating D.
Mavericks had Dirk, an unstoppable iso player. Pistons had a suffocating D. You have to have one or the other to win. Passing hasn't worked since the Bulls discovered that length, speed and super athleticism counter it.
That's why I keep calling it a 'gimmicky' offense. They are tricking the other team with ball movement and fantastic PnR play but at the end of the day, their players are B athletes.
Don't worry, this is all good. I respect your opinion so this is meant with no disrespect. PASSING TEAMS DON'T WIN NBA TITLES. They just don't. You need at least one fantastic iso player or an overwhelming D. The Spurs have neither and will not win the title. After awhile, against really elite, long D's, they get intimate with your plays and their long arms get in the lanes. And then you are done. That's what's you are seeing here, I mean seriously, the Spurs offense devolved into Tim Duncan iso's. LOL, that's not going to work.
Where's that poser, Jax? All of the posers have scurried into hiding. I don't see anyone on here admitting that they were foolishly on the Spurs. I called this and I want some props. I was being called all kinds of names and now I have proven you fools wrong!
Are you a buffoon? I called this before the series started. I said that the Thunder would do poorly at first and then as the series wore on, the Thunder would figure out the gimmicky nature of this team and then you would see tons and tons of turnovers. And that's EXACTLY what we've seen for the last 5 quarters. My only mistake was thinking that Brooks would figure it out in between game 1 and 2 so I was a game behind but I fully expect the Thunder to win this series and I wouldn't be surprised if they win the next 3.

@cleandoe That's from Rocky III, tyvm. I pity the fool!
It's got to be Collison or Ibaka when we go small. Perk's too slow to play against this team.
Yeah, it was a rough 4th quarter for us. I think tonight, we'll lock in and get that win. I really feel like tonight, our speed, length and athleticism will impose on the Spurs.
@duhsweetness @JimboSlice @cleandoe
I like the trade. It's got to be an expiring, right? And we could really use that length for defense. Could you imagine going small with Tayshaun-Harden-Westbrook-KD? That's so long, it's crazy long!
@tydude @duhsweetness @C-Wil
That's way too late, imo. I'm totally with you, C-Wil
We are going to win tonight, I guarantee it! Go Thunder, woot woot!!
I picked Thunder in 6 and said we'd lose last night but I'm not feeling as good about it now as I was before the game. I hope I was right!

@cemitten @BRY BRY I think we are winning still in 6. I expected us to lose last night.
@Legendary_dork Okay, legend, I respect your opinion so I'll stop with that.

@FREE_COLE @justin_mia um, one man's offensive is another man's friendly joking
@Legendary_dork @justin_mia just some civil sarcasm. Thunderchick told me that stuff was how we roll on here. Just trying to fit in.
@Lasers I was giving support to Laughing, is that okay? Can't you guys butt out? With all due respect...
@FREE_COLE @ThunderChick2010 @thelaughingwiseman Maybe I did. I thought her point was that Justin doesn't think biting sarcasm is rude so it's okay. Is that your point, thunderchick?
Yeah, biting sarcasm is rude. No question about it. I am just letting laughingwiseman know that if he wants to talk about hypothetical situations on this board, he's more than welcome to do so.
@Old Man Game @thelaughingwiseman
oh for sure, if you just add that to the roster, we have by far the best team in the league. With Love's amazing 3 point shooting, you've got to try to turn Serge + Perk into a better center. I might be willing to roll the dice and trade for Dwight Howard. Could you imagine KD, Love, Westbrook, and Howard if you traded Harden and Serge for Howard?
