Well it's sort of true, Westbrook has faced Jason Kidd, Delonte West, Ramon Sessions and Steve Blake so far. Really? Not one premiere point guard Russell has faced, and this will be his biggest challenge yet. Honestly they offset each other because Parker can't guard Westbrook and Westbrook can't guard Parker. Kawhi Leonard will be guarding Durant, and that will scare me. Either Kawhi will do a rather decent job defending Durant, or Durant will expose the rookie and just go off. The number one key for the spurs is their bench. Almost EVERYONE has to play good now. Gary Neal needs to do what he did in Game 4 against the clippers. Hopefully, Bonner will drain some open 3 pointers. And Manu, who has been almost non-existent this entire playoffs, needs to really step up because he's going to be playing the younger version of himself in Harden. And Stephen Jackson, now he has been non existent. He needs to step up offensive wise. He is capable of scoring alot but has yet to prove it in the playoffs. I understand he's a tough defender, but come on, reach in and channel the Golden State Stephen Jackson and actually score some meaningful points when you are in the game!!

@russman138 Actually Harden is an LA kid and he idolized Kobe Bryant growing up. But yeah, in terms of his skills and game, when he was interviewed during the 2009 combined he said his game most resembles Manu.
You know what, Blair is good, just really inconsistent. He's had a couple of really great games, some just happened to be against the thunder. But MOST of the time, he is either average or just not good. His moves consist of a spin and a hook shot, or that god awful tear drop that is also inconsistent. The only spurs player who should be doing the tear drop is Tony Parker, end of story. I'd sit him, and put him in if it's a blow out or if he REALLY needs to be used. I honestly think Pop should make Patty Mills the back up point guard instead of Neal. I've watched Patty this season and he seems to be a little better running the 2nd unit than Neal. Neal is great, but he's more of a spot up shooter. Patty is a tremendous shooter who can shoot coming off picks and to me, just seems more fit to run the point guard position off the bench (if manu isn't doing it himself.)
