NBA Finals tonight. I hope for the sake of all that is good in this world that OKC wins. It would be a triumph for winning the right way, as opposed to just signing highly cunty free-agents. OKC is what every club’s roadmap is – draft intelligently, get the right free-agents, get a little lucky, and peak at the same time. It’s a plain formula that’s no secret to anyone, but executing it is altogether another matter. What if Portland had taken Durant, what if Westbrook had been traded, what if Harden would’ve slipped…there’s too many pieces in OKC’s puzzle that have just come together at the right time, and you would think lady luck is on their side.

They’ve gone through the Lakers, Mavericks, and Spurs – all Champions past. This run is unprecedented and I feel, unstoppable. I am looking forward to seeing the Ibaka/Bosh, Durant/James, Sefolosha/Wade matchups, hell, every matchup is great. This should be a cracking series that should make the LBJ-led Heat a nice 0-2 in the Finals. Come to think of it, that’s actually more pleasing to me than if they had lost to Boston. Schadenfreude.
