"It's only right. It's only right." -- LeBron James
They calmly returned to Oklahoma City and not only put a halt to San Antonio's 20 game win streak, but served up a reverse sweep to the Alamo City boys. Kevin Durant continues to improve, James Harden continues to be a spark plug off the bench and Russell Westbrook continues to frustrate fans and opponents alike. In successive order, the Thunder knocked off the three teams that have won all of the Western Conference Championships from 1999 to 2011. They enter the NBA Finals sporting a postseason record of 12-3 and are a perfect 8-0 at home. Impressive.
So here we are, faced with a matchup that in terms of star power can't get any better for the NBA. The 2012 Most Valuable Player squaring off against the 2012 Scoring Champ and MVP runner-up. Here is the NBA Finals matchup (series breakdown in parenthesis):
2 Oklahoma City Thunder (series tied 1-1)
2 Miami Heat
This series will go the distance and in the end, the Oklahoma City Thunder will find themselves hoisting the Larry O'Brien trophy and sending LeBron, Bosh and Wade off to Pier 15 to enjoy #fishing season.
