My thoughts are that the Spurs are going to win this series. Not because they are “more experienced” but honestly because they are the better basketball team period. Now before everybody says ” OMG Lamar how can you say that the Thunder have Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden. My response is yes they do however the Spurs have Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobli and a far more superior supporting cast. To me this series is not going to be about ” Youth vs. Experience” it’s going to be about ” A Complete Basketball Team vs. Three Really Good Players.”
In addition my criticism of the OKC Thunder is they are a one trick pony so to speak. Although it’s one hell of a trick it’s still only one trick. Now the Spurs are probably the only team in the NBA that can expose the Thunder’s weakness and exploit it. As for the Spurs the one thing that I can say is a concern is that when you play 10 to 12 guys a game, in the event there is a close game do they have a definitive “Go To Guy”. However I will say that a key to winning in the playoffs is maintaining your level of play throughout an entire series. with that being said I pick the Spurs to win this series in 6 games.
