"KING CHAMPIONS"

The Stage is Set…

The moment is now…

The finals are here…

Its game 5...

The NBA season maybe coming to an end…

The Informer’s two month stretch of writing again maybe taking a 2 month Hiatus…

No matter what happens…The Informer Gurantees..Next year we will do it again….

Now if you excuse the Informer…He got his VCR fired up…His Natty Lights iced…

The Informer is rooting as loud as he can in his basement while his daughter is sleeping for the Thunder to win…

Listen the Informer does not want this series to end…The more these two teams play the better for everyone involved…

So please Thunder… “Cowboy Up”….

Durant make the Informer not regret buying those two “Mint 10” Rookie Cards for 65 bucks…

James Hardin please show up and play…

And for god sakes Derek Fisher please have the “Flu” and just watch tonight….

The Informer is going to watch he will be back after the game…

To either write about how the series is worked out the exact way it was supposed to and its 3-2 series with the Thunder now having home-court advantage…

Or we will be talking about “King James”…

Just know that Phil Jackson writes in his book “More Then A Game” that no team ever wins all 3 middle games of an NBA FINALS…

In fact even the great Michael Jordan had trouble closing out teams in game 5 situations…(Suns, Jazz, Sonics and Blazers)…..

So Thunder you have hope….

ITS TIP_OFF………….

Turns out the 2006 Miami Heat team won all 3 games at home…T

Thanks for nothing Phil Jackson..That’s what the Informer gets for reading books from 2002.…

*************************************************************************************
The Informer wrote those last two sentences in the second quarter of game five….IT would have been nice to know….
As you all know the series is over….

The Miami Heat just put on a show of who the Miami Heat are….

And the Informer is just happy that it was not easy….

In fact coming into this series they were the Underdogs….

Flashback to two years ago and “The Decision”…I think the reason everyone thought the decision sucked is that it was going to be easy for the Heatles to win a title….

Then last year the Heat got beat and everyone was happy…

We all agreed your not supposed to buy a championship and we were happy it didn’t happen….

But it has to be mentioned…The Heat did not win this title easy…

Easy was when they signed the Big Four two years ago…

(And Yes at the time Mike Miller was supposed to be a difference maker)

LEBRON WADE BOSH MILLER….

But the Heat got hit in the mouth and taught a lesson about basketball from the basketball God’s…It will not be easy…

In fact…

Miller got hurt and hasn’t been the guy they thought throughout the two years…

The Mavericks showed up last year and took down the mighty Kings….

But the Heat came back and played basketball….Again Lebron just wanted it more then anyone else….

Wade and Bosh fought through injuries all year to help Lebron….

And Mike Miller saved his best for last…He may not have been the number four throughout the last two years  but he was def a reason they won this series…

Miller earned his money…7-8 from downtown…

Shades of Jordan 6-6..At one point he was 6-6 from downtown…With a shot back...

So finally the big three got their fourth….

Along the way this year everyone picked apart the Heat…

IT was fun when they struggled…

It was fun to say they were not really that good…

We all needed to see them actually do it…

Then they were down 2-1 to the Pacers…And they did it….

Then they were down 3-2 in against the Celtics and they did it…

They lost game one in the finals and then they did it…

And bye  they I do mean a lot of Lebron “King James”….

He averaged 30 points and 10 rebounds the last 11 games in the postseason…

He finished off this workman like series with a causal “Triple Double”…You could see it early on…He was getting every rebound…Making every pass…The guy was not going to lose….

And that is how he played the entire series…It was refreshing to watch Lebron play like Lebron every game…All the critics…All the media…All the drunk couch watchers who like to say he doesn’t have it in him….He just played like Lebron….

He just proved he had it in him….

We just watched a guy who used to rely on his jump shot play five straight games where he didn’t even attempt a jumper unless it was a killer three..Like in game four….

Lebron said he played not to play to prove people wrong…He wanted to play his game…Play like Lebron…

And he did that…

He closed out a finals game with a triple double…

You know who has done that in their careers…

Duncan…Worthy…Magic…And Lebron….

That’s an impressive list….

Back to it was not easy…

The Informer got chills at the end of game five…He was rooting hard for the Thunder…

The Informer loves Durant…The Informer became a huge Westbrook fan….

But the Informer is not a dummy…

Watching the Joy on the Heat at the end of game five was true joy…

It was not bought joy..

Which we all hated with the decision…

It is not easy winning an NBA championship…

And you could tell by the sheer joy that the Heat showed that this was not expected, this was earned…

The Informer being a “Drunk Couch Watcher” liked that it means so much to these millionaires…Honestly it means that much to the Informer….TO all fans that watch the NBA…

Whether its Kobe losing…Or bashing Lebron..Or falling in love with Durant…

We watch at all times hoping that the game means as much to them as us the fans…

And judging by the tears from the Thunder or the joy from the Heat it does mean something to them….

And that is why the Informer had chills…He may or may not have gave a standing ovation at the end of the game while sitting in the basement by himself…The Informer was happy…What a season…What a playoffs….

Quick Thunder tangent…Barkley said it best now you are the Heat….You’re the young team that can’t win the title…They are going to have a lot of pressure going into next year….And the Informer fully expects (And He is betting it) that Durant will be your MVP…That the Thunder will be back…And they will be playing with something to prove….They took there final lump…..

Now back to the Heat…..

Pat Riley said it after the game.. “Now Lebron gets to just play basketball as the best player in the game…”

And that’s a scary thought….The proverbial Monkey is off of Lebron’s back….

The Monkey is off the Heats back….

And now at age 27 and 30 Lebron and Wade don’t have the same pressure…

AGAIN That’s a Scary Thought…

Just like the Question said after the game…

“Something just had that “Meant To Be” feeling..Like how the Heat were down 2-1 to the Pacers…To come back down 3-2 against the Celtics..And finally the role players stepped up…”

That was the reason the Informer picked the Heat early in this season..

The question was upset the Informer was so high on the Heat..

The reason he was so high was because when the Heat hit their ceiling they couldn’t be beat….

And give the Thunder credit…

They had their opportunities..

But in game five the ceiling was reached and the knockout punch was given….

It didn’t matter who did it…

Was it Bosh turning into a three point shooter….

Was is Mike Miller finally making his threes…

Was it Mario Chalmers…The Lookalike Kenny Smith aka Norris Cole…Or Shane Battier…

They all made the shots needed to play along side Lebron at his apex….

This was def the best team…

So congrats to the 2012 NBA Champs…

MIAMI HEAT YOU EARNED IT….

Now if you will excuse the Informer…He needs to take a 2 month long cold shower…..

(Yes that’s a BISP joke…The NBA WAS THAT FANTASTIC)….

See you all in two months…

NFL?

That the Informer’s beautiful blonde wife already being furious…

THANKS NBA….

IT WAS  A GREAT YEAR………..

"Game Four and Keys To Game Five"

Game four is over….

I think the question said it the best….

THE QUESTION-- “It sucks but I just kinda came to the realization that Lebron is going to get his ring.”

And the Question is 100 percent correct….

Listen you can make numerous arguments about how the Thunder are being screwed….

How the refs are letting the Heat play rugby while the Thunder are forced to play scared…

You don’t believe the Informer…

Kevin Durant actually just picked up his first foul of game five…And that game doesn’t even start for another 18 hours….

Get it..

The Informer is making a joke that just being in the same city as Lebron will have NBA refs calling fouls…

Its not a great joke but the point is through game three Lebron James was never in foul trouble while Kevin Durant sat down twice.…

Well in game four the Refs evened it out by not calling 5 fouls on Durant…

He only finished with 4 I believe…

But again its not the refs fault…

This series is over for one reason….

And the Informer knows what your thinking….

“Its over cause Derek Fisher played 22 minutes in game four and produced 0pt..0assists…0 rebounds…0 steals…Really the Only stat he completed was missing a lay-up in the fourth quarter when he tried a 1-5 fast break….”

Well…

Technically that was not where the Informer was going with his thought but it deserves to be mentioned once again…

Why is Derek Fisher on the floor for 22 minutes while Kendrick Perkins (A starter even if Justin Andersen thinks he should not get any minutes) played 18 minutes….?

Or a back-up who was one of the keys to your only victory in this series (Nick Collison) only played 16 minutes…

Again OKC your trouble is not at the guard-trouble position…

You have that covered--Sofaman, Hardin, Westbrook and Durant….

Please explain the infatuation with Derek Fisher….?

‘WEll Informer he has experience and can make big shots….”

Hey D-Bag…

You know who the Thunder want taking big shots..

DURANT WESTBROOK HARDIN…

That’s the list….

Not Derek Fisher…

(Yes the Informer just called his fake imaginary reader who is really the Informer a D-Bag…This series is driving the Informer nuts…And the Informer loves it…)

Again the Informer actually thinks Fisher has brought some things to the table for the Thunder in this playoffs but he needs to  be bringing those things to the table in about 10-12 minutes…

Not 22-30.…

If he is on the floor for over 20 minutes he is taking away from what he can bring to the table….

On Wend… (The Informer has no f*cking idea how to spell Wensday so he just abbreviated it)

The day before the biggest game of this young Thunder  team season someone finally stepped up and asked the coach what the hell he was doing….

Kendrick Person made a pretty valid point…

Hey coach we were up by 17 points…

Why did you mess with what was working…

AKA…The Starting lineup…

Again the Thunder had a chance to win in the fourth quarter so its not solely on the coach here…

But the question again has to be asked why not play your best guys…Get DEREK FUCKING FISHER off the court….

As the Informer was saying though…

This game was not lost because of the Refs…

This game was not lost because of the rotation…

Hell this game was not lost because James Hardin looks like a broke ass “John Starks”….

(For those that were not Knicks fan back in 1994...Starks was there second best player…A shooting guard who could score…Then he went 2-18 in a big NBA Finals game and pretty much sucked at basketball after that….Just saying James you may want to make an appearance in this series else you will just be a 6th man version of “John Starks”)

And that’s why Im the Informer….

But know this series and game four were lost because last night Lebron had 26 points…9 rebounds…12 assist……

That is an all-around game dominance…

And Lebron would have had  a triple double if his body didn’t betray him by cramping up…

For those who want Lebron to be clutch see the three pointer with 2:00 minutes left that broke open a tie game….

For those who want Lebron to be the best player on the floor just look at his overall numbers and dominance of every game since game 6 was the Celtics series….

For those who want to say Lebron is just a physical freak and that’s why he is so good…

Well that’s actually true…

And since game one Lebron has decided to use his physical tools…

He stopped playing “Jump Shot” Basketball…

And started playing im going to make layups all-night and you cant stop me basketball…

Its been unbelievable to watch…

The Informer came into this series hoping for a seven game series…

After games one and two it looked like we would be heading that way…

Instead with a little help from the refs…

A little poor coaching…

Some Inexperienced Thunder mistakes and Lebron it looks like this is going to be reminiscent of the 1991 Bulls….

You know since the Bulls lost game one…

Then swept four in a row…

Just the Lebron/Wade version of young Jordan and Pippen is the team that is on the verge of closing out the series….

(Jordan was 28 I believe when he won his first title..Lebron is 28 eight….Just saying)

Now as a Durant fan the Informer will say this…

All the Thunder have to do is win one game on the road and they get the home court back….

That’s it…

They win tonight at it’s a 3-2 series…

And your heading back to the BBQ and the Sooner State with two must win games at home….

This series isn’t necessarily over guys…

And its because the Thunder are not scared….

By any stretch of the imagination (With the Exception of James Hardin…Someone might want to get him a clean pair of shorts…Get it a sh*tting the bed/pants joke)..

But Russell Westbrook is not scared of this team…

Kevin Durant is not scared of this team…

Kendrick Perkins and Iblacka…Not scared…

They feel they should be up 3-1...

But the plan was never to be up 3-1...

The plan in a seven game series that has the 2-3-3 format is to get the game back to your home-court…

How much pressure do you think Lebron will be feeling if they somehow lose tom night and have to go close out the series in the most hostile crowd in the NBA….

(Again this version of Lebron is not going to be worried about the crowd and pressure…..But the Informer is not 100 percent sure on that…Are you?)

Like the Informer was saying game 4 is over…

It was a fun game to watch that turned depressing…

Depressing because the Informer is rooting for the Thunder and wanted the Thunder to win to guarantee a game 6.….

Seriously the more basketball the better…

This playoffs and season has been unreal….

Also the Informer is rooting for Durant…

Unlike most though…

The Informer is not a Wade/Lebron hater…

The Informer loves watching those two guys play basketball….

If the Informer made a list his favorite NBA teams would be..

1. Lakers
2. Thunder
3. Heat

In that order….

Those teams are the reason the Informer buys the NBA package and watches basketball every night for 4 months while his wife threatens him with physical violence…….

The Heat/Thunder are just fun to watch….

So yes the more games this series goes the better we all are for it…As humans and as Americans..>Or at least as degenerate Sports fans..…

The Question did write the Informer a long email about his thoughts on this series after game three…

He also gave his keys to winning this series…

Now due to technical difficulties (The Informers Hotmail account freezing up and making it difficult to copy and paste …aka the Informer getting to drunk Monday and still being hung over on Wend) the Informer is going to re-visit those keys and just like NFL style him and the Question are going to do a little back and forth….

So Keys to Game 5...

Even though the Question meant them for game 4.….

THE QUESTION---

1). Must keep Durant out of foul trouble.

The thing that sucks about this point is that you probably can't let him D up Lebron at least to open the game.   (Informer Note - Again this was a game four thought but still applies)

As much as I like to see KD on Lebron because I feel like it gives Lebron a big problem (in the half court, in the open court no chance) because KD can back off Lebron far enough to where Lebron has a hard time getting around him but close enough to where the wing span can at least be noticed on a Lebron jumper.

I think you need to start with Thabo on him except Coach Brooks needs to tell Thabo to back off far enough that he can stay in front of Lebron and contest the jumper as best as possible from that distance.  Again Lebron is great in the lane he is average outside of it.

THE INFORMER

The Informer fully expects the NBA to step in here and start giving the Thunder those calls that Lebron/Wade have been getting all series…

Again its been frustrating watching the Thunder not get one 50/50 call…

If David Stern is still alive that will not be the case in game 5...

Which means if Im the Thunder I gamble and put Durant on Lebron early and often…

Like the Question said Lebron is just getting to the rim at will…

At least with Durant on him he will have to work for his points…

And if the Thunder want to go with TheSofa then they need to listen to the Question…Back off and make him a jump shooter….

If that’s how you lose……

Then its going to happen regardless…

THE QUESTION’S SECOND KEY TO THE GAME:

2).  Force the Heat to be a jump shooting team, specifically Lebron and Wade, give them a jumper and don't bite on the shot fake.

See above, but Lebron specifically is not a jump shooter he is way more efficient when you let him drive and way more comfortable too. 

I mentioned this to the Informer in the Celtics series…

If you let Lebron take as many jump shots as possible you just keep him out of the lane and you will win this series, Yes Lebron will beat you 2 games on his jumpers cause he will hit a streak, but he can't win a series that way. 

Wade you must contest as he is better but still much more efficient in the lane. 

THE INFORMER

Once again game 4 is over…You know what…You live and die with Chalmers scoring 25 points…

He is an NBA player sooner or later he will have a good game…

The thing is stick to the gameplan…

If the Heat want to win the Title with Chalmers and Battier and Norris Cole taking big shots…

F*cking Let Them….

Please…

The defense is actually fine in OKC…

Not to much change is needed…

If those guys are going to make shots your going to lose…

That’s just a cold-hard fact…

But you must keep making them shoot…What you cant do is play your defense to let them shoot and to also let Wade/James into the paint at will…

That takes away from the game-plan

THE QUESTIONS THIRD KEY TO THE GAME

3).  Thunder need to attempt 30 free throws.

The Thunder need to be more aggressive at getting to the hoop and forcing the refs to make calls and send them to the free throw line. 

Durant attempted in game 3 but had a couple blocked and Westbrook did as well just didn't finish nor did he get a foul called. 

THE INFORMER

Yes the question made this point before game four…So this next thought makes a lot of sense…

Game four was when Westbrook drove to the paint every single time down the floor…

Scored 43 points…

Played out of his mind…

And only took 2 free throws….

WHAT?

Again the Informer fully expects and NBA style rigged-outcome where the Thunder shoot at least 30 free-throws in game five…

And if that don’t happen the Informer fully plans on mailing a bag of feces to the Refs that cost Durant his chance to start his run as the best player ever…

(Informer Note - -Durant will, with health, one day be in this coversation…But winning a title this year would have started the movement…Losing means we just have to wait til next year…On a side note the Informer is telling you right now…Put down a 100 dollars on Durant to win the MVP next year….The Informer has never felt more strongly about anything….Yes the Informer just wrote that last sentence while looking at his 48 Anfernee “Penny“ Hardaway rookie cards)

THE QUESTIONS #4 Key To Game Five…That he thought about before game 4...

4) How would a key to a Thunder victory not include some type of comment about Westbrook…

Well key #4 is Westbrook must continue to play his game which is pull up jumpers, getting to the hoop, and once the defense starts converging kicking it out for open looks for KD, Thabo, Ibaka, and Fisher.

 I still think Fisher will hit a big shot in this series regardless of that terrible pull up three from the top of the key in Game 3. 

THE INFORMER

Mr. Question you had a great theory going until you included Fisher…

The Informer will continue to say it…Fisher is bringing nothing to the table in this series…He is not going to lose or cost the Thunder this game…But he def is not going to help win it either…

ALSO Mr. Question you forgot him kicking to James Harden…

Again the Informer is calling you out Harden…

Your are in some dangerous Kevin Johnson Territory….

(For those that don’t remember Kevin Johnson was the second best player on the 93 Phoenix Suns team…Until he sh*t the bed and played the worst 6 games of his career…Don’t bring this up to the Chuckster….(No Idea If  he played shitty in all Six games but from one of the books the Informer read about basketball in the 90’s he knows that he sucked)

And yes the Informer just used parenthesis inside of parenthasis and then misspelled parantesis…That’s why Im the Informer…

 THE QUESTIONS FINAL THOUGHT

At any rate this series couldn't be better for a league that needed a second coming of Bird vs Magic and the remaining series will at the very least be entertaining to watch. 

THE INFORMER

Again the Question wrote his email before game four but his final thought is 100 percent why the Informer is betting the Heat tom night….

He wants the Series to continue and is pulling out the big guns…

The Informer lack of ability to bet NBA games correctly…Or to bet any game correctly…

So Thunder nation please know that the Informer is on your side…He is betting Miami but will be rooting for Durant…

Again one win and your at home in a 3-2 series…

Which is how it was supposed to play out….

The Thunder just took the hard road…

But then again they are way to young to realize they shouldn’t win this next game..>And this series….

THE NBA ITS FANTASTIC>…..

(Yes the Informer is putting 50 on the Miami ML….It worked in the Super Bowl..It worked with the Lakers vs. Thunder in mid March…It just works..The Informer cant win a bet…So the Informer wants more basketball he is betting for Lebron….)


SPECIAL THOUGHT FROM THE QUESTION

The refs, I can forgive them for missing the call at the end of game 2, but it did deprive every NBA fan of a possible tie game and for the Heat to be tested in the clutch which I think is where the Heat wither if their not on the free throw line.  

Alright, now I just want to see more consistency during the game on both sides of the court. 

It appears that James and Wade are given the benefit of the doubt on their drives to or through the lane, however when Durant or Westbrook go through the refs need to actually see something before a call is given. 

I would just like to see consistency on both sides of the court. 

Also why Westbrook or Harden just don't knee Battier right in the tea cups as hard as they can when they know their going to get a charge called on them from Battier sliding in, it is beyond me. 

If your going to take a charge on me your going to pay for it. 

Give him a nice little well placed knee and make him reconsider how much he values his role as the most annoying player on the court if he isn't on your team role. 

Now I thought the NBA refs had an unwritten rule that you do not get Super Stars who are guards into foul trouble?

Apparently someone needs to remind this years NBA Finals refs. 

I don't understand how back to back games Durant has 5 fouls and James only has 1. 

Really 1 foul he is the most active defensive and offensive player on the court and he only picked up one foul in game 1 and 3. 

Doesn't seem to make sense to me. 

(Informer Note - -And this is why the NBA is going to gift wrap game five in the Thunders favor…Come on the season cant be over yet….Can It?)

"Game 3"

The Informer wants to know what the Hell OKC is doing….

Ok..

Lets start this blog with the pre-requisit…(I mean nomar…I mean well lets start this damn blog by saying yes the Informer is a fat drunk and not an NBA coach so he has no idea how to coach an NBA Team)….

Ok so lets start this blog with the pre-requisit (Is the spelling right) that the Informer is not a NBA player…

The Informer is not a former NBA coach…

In fact the closest thing to the NBA the Informer has ever gotten is NBA Live 2010..

And yes the Infomrer is using NBA Live 2010 because the NBA Live series decided to discontinue and the Informer refuses to play that piece of trash other NBA game….

(Quick Tangent - - Two years ago the Informer tried the other piece of trash game..He went and spent his sixty dollars even giving away his 2010 NBA Live game…You know what the Informer did…After playing that trash they call NBA 2k11 the Informer actually traded back for his NBA 2010 Live game…)

Ok back to the Informer’s point that he is not an NBA coach…

He has no idea why they do things…

In fact the informer is reading his second Phil Jackson book in the past week and he has come away with one conclusion…

For the most part the media and the fan have no idea what they are talking about…

They are not there for the day to day…

They don’t know when one guy is “Hung Over”..When one guy is having “Skank Problems” or when one guy is just mad at one of his teammates so he does the exact opposite to help his team…

Honestly we only learn about these things twenty years later when the coach/star player writes a book…

So again the Informer is not trying to say he is an expert…He just wants to say he has watched more NBA games then anyone this year….He will place money and win that wager…

He has also been a diehard NBA fan for the last 20 years..

Only wavering during the end of his high school run when..well…he discovered girls…And bowling and bad Martin Lawrence movies took place over watching NBA games….

So with that complete waist of time resume the Informer just spewed out…

Here is what the Informer wants explained from game 3...

“What in the Hell was OKC doing in the third quarter…?”

Yes Durant picked up his fourth foul so they had to move him to the bench…Thanks NBA Durant had just hit three shots in a row..Yes we wanted the Refs to get him out of the game..He looked tired…..

At the time the Thunder were leading by 7 points…

There was roughly four minutes left in the third quarter…

The Informer was thinking well sh*t Durant is gone which means that its time for Westbrook to make his stamp as the perfect wing man….

Honestly the only reason you have a Durant and Westbrook on the same team is so that when one of the guys gets in trouble the other steps up and makes the plays…

See Bulls (When Pippen would hold the fort down til the Jordan was on the bench)….

Then you throw in that Hardin or is it Harden was coming into the game the Informer thought..

OKC will be fine…

The other two guys will shine…

Then Durant will come back in the fourth quarter and the Thunder will Rolll…To still a line from “Garth Brooks”….

So what happens…

The Thunder move Russell Westbrook to the bench……..For the final 5 minutes of the third quarter…

When he had already sat 8 minutes in the first half…

What the FUCK?

And yes the Informer just said FUCK….

What in the blue gosh damn hell is Scottie Brooks doing…

Durant was already on the bench you needed Westbrook more then ever…

But by all gosh-damn means make sure Derek Fisher is your leading minutes player….

Not even sure if that is a true fact but once fisher came on the floor in each half (1st quarter and 3rd quarter) he did not come off the floor…

Please tell me why?

The Informer love Fisher..And the Informer hates Fisher…The Informer knows that Fisher helped get Kobe some rings…But why is he playing more minutes then everyone else on the team while Westbrook a 23 year old energy player is sitting on the Bench?

And for the  Westbrook Haters….

Only four NBA players have ever started two NBA FINALS GAMES WITH 50 points-15rebound-15 assist…

Yes the Informer said 4...

In NBA History…(Jordan, I think Wilt..Elgin Hayeys? I think and Westbrook…the Informer is to drunk from drinking every time the Thunder get a bad call against them that he forgot the real players…Just know it’s a real stat…Look it up…)

The Informer really has no idea where we are at but I think it is why in the Hell was Westbrook taken out of the game…

The Informer understands that Westbrook normally sits at this time in the third quarter…

But maybe when the normal rotation was changed when Durant again got into foul trouble (keep up the good work NBA Refs..Don’t worry that you  now cost Durant 2 NBA Finals Games) maybe its time to switch up the rotation…

Let Westbrook and Harden take home the third quarter…

Instead the coach decided that he needed to get Fisher into the game and let Harden go one on five….

So he has now completely killed the confidence of his three second best guys in this series through the first three games….

Is that what your trying to do Scottie Brooks…?

You  need evidence….The Informer will help…

Serge Ibaka…Guy cant get 30 minutes in this series even though he may as well be Dikembe Mutumbo…

James Harden - -Yes the Thunder won game one so it got pushed a-side but Harden a huge closer and a huge member of this team played 5 minutes in the second half…

Good news Derek Fisher played a number of minutes…Again the Informer is not a good or paid enough journalist to try and find the actual stats…WE all know that Fisher played while Harden Sat….

Did you know that there were rumblings that Harden was upset about game one because he was a non-factor….

Well it was cooled by his teammates saying..Well we won….

And that’s right…The Thunder had won a NBA FINALS GAME…

Bad news is there coaches also thought the same thing…We Won a Finals Game….


So there thought was…

We won a finals game….Our rotation makes sense…
Which is why the coaching staff decided in game 3 that we can rest our people…

WE did it once it will work agan…

WE can keep outsmarting ourselves and playing rotations where our second best player sits on the bench with our best player because it will work out….

Bad news it didn’t work out…

The Heat made a run…

Took the lead and iced the game….

All the while Durant watched with fouls and Westbrook watched with COACHES DECISION>…

Seriously…

And yes the Informer says seriously way to much…

But seriously….

The Thunder had a chance to let there second best player..aka your Pippen..take over a game and demonstrate that he is a bonifide super-star while his running mate is in foul trouble and instead you sat him on the  bench?

This was the point the Heatles (Yes Lebron and the Heat actually call themselves the Heatles) who had both Lebron and Wade on the floor took over and took the lead….

Erasing the 7 point deficit….

Giving the Heatles complete moment and thus erasing everything the Thunder had done in the first 2 and a half quarters…..

Listen only about six people are reading this blog at this point so the Informer will make this short….

There was a story from one of Phil Jackson’s book…

Its about a playoff game when the Bulls were playing (while Jordan was with the White Sox) the Knicks and had a chance to take a game winning shot…

Now that was the year Jordan was gone and Pippen had played himself into the games best player…(should have been MVP)…

Well the Bulls were in a time-out and Jackson designed a play that would allow Toni Kuckoc to take the final shot…

Instead of Pippen…

Pippen mad because it was finally his time to be the hero sulked and asked out of the game…

Why did Pippen sulk and ask out of the game…

Because for years he had played the second best player role and wanted a chance to be the leader…

Honestly everyone was mad about Pippen calling him selfish…

The Informer on the other hand agreed with Sir Scottie…

He paid his dues…

Letting Jordan take all the Credit..

This was his time..

His team..

Which he had led to the playoffs and 50 wins without Jordan…

But Phil out coached himself and decided to let Kuckoc take the shot (Yes he did make the shot and the team won but there is a larger point)….

Pippen sat on the bench and the Bulls won that game but lost the series…..Luckily the next year Jordan came back and they ended up winning three more finals…But the point needs to be made…

It was Pippens time….

Just like in game three it was Westbrooks time…Only the coaches kept all their second stringers on the floor while Westbrook watched Lebron and Wade take over….

Again why in the hell was Westbrook not on the floor….

Fast forward through to the Fourth Quarter and the Heat won…While the thunder were trying to figure out how they scored less then 90 points….

Let the Informer explain…You let Derek Fisher play 30 minutes instead of letting your go to guys win the game….

Again the Informer is a drunk couch watching Monday morning point guard but what in the Hell were the Thunder doing?

Why is the coaching staff so adamant about keeping Ibacka on the bench..All the while James got two offenseive rebound put backs/fouls called on the 6’2 Derek Fisher…

It was honestly frustrating to watch…

That is before we even get to the fact that every middle call went Miami’s way…For the second straight game…

Listen the Informer is the first to say that the foul calls always even out in a series…So don’t get to high or low….

But for the love of God Durants 4th and 5th fouls were absolutely the same foul that Lebron did not get called on at the end of game 2.…

Again..To still a phrase…

Seriously…Does the NBA not want Durant making an impact on these games….?

The Heat are up 2-1...

Lebron is playing out of his mind….

But the Informer cant help but think that the OKC coaching staff is out thinking themselves….

Add that in with the fact that the Thunder are going to get zero calls from the refs (30 free throws by Miami) and you have a recipe  for a seven game series….

The only problem is the coaching staff has now made three of its players non factors….

Harden Game 1...

Westbrook being benched for game 3...

And Ibaka for the entire series…

Hopefully the young Thunder don’t let this effect them…

The problem with young players though is they are not mature enough not to let them effect how they feel/play….

It will be interesting how game four plays out…Sooner rather then later the refs have to let Durant play a full game correct…

The OKC staff has to understand that even though Derek Fisher is a good ball player its better to let Westbtrook and Hardin and Ibacka play….

You know the guys that along with Durant got you there…

But for god sakes don’t upset a 37 year old point guard…

That would be bad…

No this blog didn’t get into much of the game and the problem was the Informer watched the game thinking the whole damn time…

WHY ARE YOUR BEST PLAYERS ON THE BENCH?…

In any respect..The Heat one another game…

The Thunder are going to have their backs against the serious wall…

See you Tuesday Night…

THE NBA ITS FANTASTIC>>>>>>>>>

"Game 2"

Not sure how to even start this blog….

The Informer is totally writing this as a view point of a Thunder fan….

Kevin Durant should have been on the free throw line with a chance to tie…You cant miss that call NBA Refs…Especially when you spent the whole game putting Durant in foul trouble…

Again Durant, Westbrook and Harden were great…

This Thunder team was dead in the water but made this game spectacular..

Honestly when Durant missed that shot with 7 seconds left the Informer could not believe it…

Yes a foul  prob should have been called but wasn’t…Then again in the playoffs you cant rely on the refs...You have to make the play yourself....

The Informer was watching this game as a fan of the Thunder because he just spent the whole game watching how the Thunder let the Heat win instead of the other way around…

Not going to lie besides the “Out Of Ass Cob three” by Battier the Informer doesn’t remember a Miami possession…

Well except Lebron’s free throws…

That’s right the guy who everyone wants to talk about that cant finish, hit two free throws with under 7 seconds in a finals game…

Lebron didn’t miss a free throw all game…12-12...

Give the King his due….

The Informer was going into this series saying when the Heat want to play the way Lebron/Wade can play they are unbeatable…

That is still kinda the case..

With one big exception…

The Thunder need to stop playing so poorly in the first half of games….

Listen they keep coming back..And giving themselves a chance to win but at the same time they are not making things easy for themselves….

You cant start the game down 17-2 or whatever the score was….

In the end this is the first time the Thunder have come up short at home in the postseason…..

But they came up short because they were not there in the first half…

Part of that was because of the 3 fouls called on Durant….

The other part was because the Thunder are starting to think the first half don’t matter….In this fat drunks opinion from his couch….

They have been playing with fire all playoffs thinking they will win in the fourth quarter…And truth be told they did win the fourth quarter but they dug themselves such a hole that it didn’t matter….

I think everyone has been saying this will be a seven game series…And I think it is safe to assume that in the NBA no team (Especially when playing Lebron/Wade) is going to sweep a series…

But in the Informer’s mind this game was given away in the first quarter…

Everyone always says that in the finals the team that loses the previous game comes out with a sense of urgency…That’s exactly what Miami did tonight…

They built a lead and then let the King take them home…

Give Lebron the credit those two free throws to give Miami the four point lead were ‘Cold Blooded”…

The Informer def expected him to miss one of two…He did not do that…He stepped up and said game over….

So yes the Thunder made this game close..

But they gave this game away early when they let Miami build a lead…

Lets face it the Heat have been labeled a front running team…Why come out soft and let them get in front?

Now like Charles Barkley always says…. “A Series Don’t Begin Until the home team loses”…

Well the home team just lost…

Consider the series began…

The Informer has a few other thoughts…

Hey Eric Spolstra….it’s a bout time you started Chris Bosh…

The guy had a double-double by halftime…

This little game where you wanted  him to come off the bench was a joke..

And was going to cost you your job…

What were you waiting for?

Did you really want Haslem getting those meaningful minutes…>When you have an all-start just sitting on the bench?

It is the NBA Finals quit out-thinking yourself….

Play your best guys and let them win the game…

The Informer could say the same thing about the Thunder…

Hey we all know that Harden comes off the Bench..

But why was he on said bench until 5 minutes to go in the third quarter?

They guy had 17 points at the half…

Put him in the game….

Then the question has to be asked….Serge “Iblocks a ton of shots” sat almost the whole second half….

What?

The guy was a difference maker but you had to get Derek Fisher on the floor?

Don’t get the Informer wrong Fisher has been very solid but he is not a difference maker on the defensive end…

YOU DON’T NEED THE OFFENSE…..

You have three guys to do that…

Put in your Defensive player who can make a difference..

AKA Serge…

The Informer loved the “Double Block”…First KD blocked a shot followed by Ibacka coming up and blocking it again…The Refs again missed this call and said goaltending…But it was still badass….

Durant finished with 32 points…He started the game 0-5 from downtown….Then started the third quarter going 6-6.…Missed a layup then hit a cold blooded three..The Informer still contends that OKC needs to make a more conscious effort to get Durant the Ball early….

Again it’s the NBA FINALS….

Get the other guys involved in the pre-season next year…

The Informer would like give props to Westbrook who obviously read the game-one blog because tonight he kept finding the open three point shooter…The One time he kicked out to  Durant they made a three…

Listen Russell every time you drive to the hoop Kevin is sitting wide open…Now most coaches would explain take the lay-up or 10ft jumper it’s a better basketball shot…Unless you have the best shooter in the NBA sitting wide open with his hand up in the corner….

It’s the Randy Moss theory..>When the hand is up throw him the ball…

(Yes the Informer just threw a Randy Moss reference into this blog…hey it’s the Informer’s blog and he will do what he likes)

On the Miami side….

Everyone who has been saying that Shane Battier is washed up…Well…Name the last time the guy didn’t hit a big three in this series…Battier was a champion at Duke and is playing these NBA Finals like he is a Cameron Indoor Stadium…

With all of that said…What a game….

Wade showed up…Lebron showed up…Bosh Showed up….

That’s how Miami wins…Once again this team when they have their backs against the wall wins…

Lebron shot maybe 3 jumpers in this game….He spent the entire game getting to the paint…Something that he has never done…When he does that the Heat are going to be tough to beat….He is so big and strong…He cant be stopped within 15ft…..When he decided to put his head down and get to the paint, well you can “Cancel Christmas”…

With all that said….

Thunder fans don’t feel to bad….

Did you know that Jordan never swept and NBA FINALS?

Neither has Kobe?

Or Magic…

Its one loss….

Against a team that came out with their backs against the wall…

The Informer fully expects Sunday night for the Thunder to come out with their backs against the wall…

The Heat landed a punch in game two….

Now lets see if the Thunder have the “Steel Jaw” that we all think they do….

It’s a 1-1 series…..

Heading to Miami….

The NBA ITS FANTASTIC……

"Game One"

The Informer is going to try and keep some thoughts…

He is watching the game live and is glued to the TV so not going to have to many in game thoughts…

But to  wet the beak a little here is the Informer’s first quarter thoughts…

At this point Durant has 11 points and one block…

He is not scared of the Finals…

The Thunder’s biggest fear at this point would be Russell Westbrook shooting them out of the game while Durant is so hot…(Durant 4-7)

With that said nobody in the NBA is as quick to the hoop as Westbrook…

Seems like he could get a layup whenever he wants….

PS- nick Collison continues to give OKC good minutes…As did Derek Fisher with his open three's…

Honestly though it has been nothing that OKC has been doing…

They are trailing 29-22 (Thanks to a awesome off balance off the dribble by Harden to end the quarter) because the Heat are just playing damn near perfect basketball…

Chalmers is hitting thress…Hell Battier is hitting threes…

They are 5-6 from downtown…

Is this a one game trend or like the Informer thinks is this team so bored by regular season and regular playoff games that they coasted until this point?

Yes it is an absurd thought…

.But when you know you’re the best and you are expected to be the best sometimes its hard to keep that focus until its time to claim the title…

And yes the Informer just came up with that ridiculous hypotenuse after one quarter of basketball…

(The Informer is breaking out all the big guns tonight he just said Hypotnus…How in the blue-hell do you spell Highpotnuse?)

Ok second quarter beginning..

The Informer will be back at halftime…

54-47

Good first half…Here are the Informers thoughts…

Would someone please send Russel Westbrook a training video on how to kick out to the open three point shooter….

Listen there is a reason Durant only scored 2 second quarter points…Cause he is standing wide open at three and Westbrook is not giving him the rock….

But as bad as the Westbrook shot in the first half the Thunder are still in this game…
Speaking of which…Has anyone seen James Harden…You cant play full halves without putting any kind of imprint on the game and expect your team to win…

On the good side..Durant put up 13 first half points…And everyone knows the first half is never about Durant….

For the Heat this is the Chalmers and Battier Game…

The Informer knows that James has 14 points but he has yet to hit a jump shot…

Its not there tonight…

Will he be able to realize this and start getting to the hoop like he did in game seven of the Celtics series?

And really D-Wade had another pretty quiet performance…

Which is scary for the Thunder because the Heat are winning by 7.…

The Informer would be reminiscent…? Is it remised?

The Informer is trying to say he would be mad at himself if he didn’t mention …..

Durants Monkey Dunk in the the 2nd quarter…

And Lebrons steal and Monkey Dunk in the 2nd quarter…

The two best plays of the first half…

Second half prediction…

Durant and the Thunder will keep feeding Iblacka..

Who had a quietly good first half…

For the Heat this game is going to be won or lost on their jump shot…

That’s what is going to decide this game and this series…

O and will Lebron keep up his 4 steals..14 points…3 asssit night…

Honestly Magic said it best at halftime.. “The Thunder played like this was their first NBA Finals’….

So very true but the Thunder are within 7 at half…

Do they have one of their patent runs left in them? Will they be able to make one of those runs against Wade and Lebron?


The Informer will be back after the Game….

Sefolosha has now had two missed dunks being bailed out by week fouls on the Heat…Love the effort..That’s why he got the calls..>Right now Thunder defense killing Miami…58-57 Third quarter..First time out by the Heat…

This is fun…

105-94.…..OKC WIN

Its time to change the Narrative…

Early in the third quarter the announcers were talking about how four years ago when the Thunder were losing something like 50 games their coach said they were not losing they were learning how to win…

How to get the game to the fourth quarter….

Well tonight the Thunder got the game to the 4th quarter with a one point lead and won the game by 11...

They know how to win…….

Obviously it helps having Durant and Westbrook who outscored the Heat by themselves in the second half…

But that statement struck the Informer..This team wants to get to the fourth quarter..Then they will win…They don’t worry about being down at halftime…They arent scared if they are not totally dominating the whole game…Get to the 4th quarter and then they will know how to win….

And that’s what they did tonight…..

Honestly how do you beat this team in the fourth quarter when it seems like no matter what Durant is going to make the shots….

Westbrook is going to make the shots…

And their oldest started (Sofasittinglosa 28 years old) is going to play defense like Shane Battier used to do the…

That’s before we even get to the fact that James Harden had 5 points…He wasn’t even a factor in the second half….Your third best player sat on the bench for almost all of the 4th quarter….

Dear goodness that’s scary….

And the Thunder have been doing this all playoffs…Listen the Informer has been saying all playoffs that at some point the Thunder will lose and we will all be saying they played like they should have won….

And that really has been the case, the only problem is at the end of games the Thunder keep making all the plays… They don’t fold in the 4th quarter like you would expect a young team to do…

They know how to close…They know how to win…And tonight they proved that….

Now back to changing the narrative…

The Informer said last night that Miami is the best team in transition…

Well tonight they got beat 24-4 in transition….

THE OKC Thunder are the best team in transition in this series..

And that is all due to Westbrook and Durant…

They don’t stop…

Seriously at one point the Informer said OKC’s biggest fear is Westbrook was going to shoot them out of the game…Well he didn’t do that..He drove to the paint..Made numerous big plays and was one of two reasons that they won this game…

And the second reason…

K.D…..

Kevin Durant..

17 points in the 4th quarter…He outscored Lebron 17-7 in the fourth…

We all wanted to see who was going to be the man at the end of this series…

Lebron finished with 30 points….9 rebounds and 4 steals…

But the guy only finished with 4 steals…Which he had at half-time…

That’s what the Informer is taking away from this game…

The Heat continue to be a front running team…They had an amazing first half….Got punched in the mouth by the Thunder in the second half and folded….

All the while the Thunder took a punch in the mouth in the first half..

Pulled themselves off the mat and came out swinging….

And Durant landed all the final blows and gave the knockout punch in the 4th quarter..Seriously if you cant beat the Thunder in the first three quarters you are not going to beat this team….

And that is changing the Narrative…Because everyone wants to think they are to young and will fold…

Problem is we are looking at a team that doesn’t know they are supposed to be young..

Because they have learned how to win close games…Which everyone always says is the hardest hump for a young team to get over….

And yes its only one game…

So lets not over react….

But for one game the Young Thunder def made all the adjustments….

That’s not good news for the Heatles…

Special shout out to Nick Collison…8 points and 10 rebounds…You continue to make winning plays….

The Informer will see you Thursday night….

"FINALS PREVIEW"

The Informer wasn’t sure how to start his NBA Finals Preview Blog….

So he spent they day reading Phil Jackson’s first book as a coach called “Sacred Hoops”…

It basically chronicles the Bulls first three titles and the next two years “When Jordan was retired and then came back for half a season as 45”….

Well the Informer finished the book and still had no idea the route he wanted to take when writing the preview so the Informer decided to consume ten beers and and watch the 1997 NBA Finals close out game….

VIA NBA TV….

And then it came to the Informer….

This finals is going to be the 91-93 Bulls vs. the 96-98 Bulls…

Basically you have the Thunder who are channeling their inner 91 Bulls…

AKA Young and Athletic with the best scorer in the game (Young MJ/Young Durant)…

The Thunder have a young and raw talented player who at times is the best player on the floor…(Young Pippen/Young Westbrook)…

And of course they have the young raw power forward who can make  difference if need be..(Young Horace Grant/Young Iblacka)…..

Throw in the old center who is the defensive backbone..(Bill Cartwright/Kendrick Perkins)….And yes according to the books Bill Cartwright was actually a captain for that young Bulls team…Since he was the elder statesman…The same way Perkins plays the Odler statesman for the thunder…

The only difference is the young Bulls did not have a James Harden….

Then you have the Miami Heat….

The team with the absolute best player in basketball…(97 Jordan/Todays Lebron)…

They have the second stars who is and was an MVP Caliber Player..(Pippen/Wade)…

And make no mistake the year and a half that Jordan played baseball there was no better all-around player in the game then Scottie Pippen..Just like when Wade and the Heat won a title with an aging Shaq he was considered one of if not the best player in Basketball….

Throw in the enigma that is Chris Bosh and you have the enigma that was the 97 Dennis Rodman…

Also Bosh plays a lefty gunner who is considered a game changer…Toni Kuckoc….

Honestly the Informer feels like this series is going to be the "What would have happened if the 91 Bulls could have played the 97 Bulls…

With the exception that both coaches (Scottie Brooks and Spolstra) wouldn’t even be able to clean Phil Jacksons shoes…

But that is what is so exciting…This series has the potential to be as great if the 91 Bulls played the 97 Bulls…And the Informer says that without the least bit of sarcasm…

Its has to be in the Informers mind the most anticipated NBA Finals since the 93 Bulls beat Charles Barkley and the Suns…

Which in the Informers mind is also the greatest NBA finals since sliced bread…(The Informer was not old enough to remember any Celtics/Lakers Battles so they don’t qualify)…

The Informer does however remember every NBA finals since 1990...When the Pistons and Blazers played…No idea who won but def remember being in the Hershey Nebraska trailer park watching the game…And no that’s not made up….

Back to the Informers point this is the most anticipated finals because its actually going to be the two best players in the game fighting over who is the best player in the game….

AKA CHARLES VS MICHAEL…

The Informer ensures you that in June of 1993 that was actually a question…

Who was better…?

That was the year that Barkley won the MVP award following a performance in the Olympics where people believed that Barkley was the best player on the “Dream Team”…Barkley was that good….

There was actually a point in the series that Barkley writes about in his book…It was game four with the Bulls leading the series 2-1.…

Barkley told his son that day that he was the best player in basketball and that he was going to go out that night and prove it….

That he did…Barkley scored 32 points…Finished the Game with a  triple double….

But still when he got home his son asked… “I though you were going to win?”

Turns out that was also the game Jordan scored 55 points and secured victory for the Bulls…

Barkley says in his book that was the first time in his life he admitted he was not the best player in the game…

Fast forward two games and John Paxson nuts a game winning three and the Bulls won their third straight NBA Championship…

The Informer was reading the Barkly book and thought it was amazing how Barkley spent the whole season saying im the best but finally admitted… “I was wrong…Jordan is the best”…

That’s where the ceiling is at for these NBA Finals…

James or Durant…Now obviously both will need their teammates to actually win the Finals..But both are going to have the opportunity to put their team on their backs and stamp their legacy…

By now most now that James is the “King”..The guys is physically the best player in basketball…

Durant is the purest scorer the Nba has seen since Jordan….And really he is a 6’10 shooting guard…His ceiling could actually be higher then that of Jordan…He is only 23 so he has  a long way to go before that happens but you have to start somewhere right….

And that’s before you factor in the Heat actually having the NBA Finals experience…(sorry not counting Derek Fisher…He may make a shot or two but he will not be the main reason the Thunder win this series)

Remember the Heat were there last year…

And they lost…

They now what they are going to have to do to win this series….

The Thunder on the other hand are going to go into this series the same way they went into the last three playoff series…With “Youthful Bliss”

They honestly don’t know they are supposed to get tight…They don’t know that they are supposed to be nervous…They just go out and say we are better more athletic and can play 60 minutes if needed….

Listen the Informer already has his sweatpants on and the game don’t start for 18 hours…

BISP ALEERT…BISP ALERT…(That’s Boner In Sweat Pants)

Ok so what are the keys to this series…

1. Oklahoma Cities Homes Crowd Advantage…..

The Spurs Mavericks and Lakers all had winnable games in OKC’s home stadium…They were not scared or phased by the crowd…

And you know what the Heat are not going to be phased by the crowd…(Check Beating Boston in Boston in the Eastern Conference Finals)

But the thing is this Thunder team kept coming out on top…They used their crowd to get them over the  hump..In numerous games where they probably should have lost…(See Kobe and Lakers losing 7 point lead in final two minutes….Yes the Informer needs a timeout to puke)

The Thunder get the First two games at home…Where the crowd will be on their side at all times.. The crowd will not have the moments of utter silence like a certain south beach crowd…They will keep cheering expecting their team to win.. Because..Well…That is what the Thunder have been doing all season….

Huge Advantage Thunder….

2. Karma….

Listen the Thunder hi-jacked a Seattle Super Sonics team that just drafted the best scorer to enter the league since young MJ…

Yes guys…Durant started his career in Seattle…

Throw in the fact that ESPN keeps showing this is the first time since the Thunder have made the finals since 1996...

Aka the Sonics Kemp/Peyton team that took the best team in the  history of basketball to 6 games…the 72-10 Bulls…

Normally the Informer would say that karma would kick the Thunder and give them their due…

Only one problem…

THE DECISION….

AKA Cleveland’s Betrayal…

That’s right as much as Seattle Fans will be throwing their “Strarbucks” at the TV screens on Tuesday night can you imagine what the people of Cleveland will be doing….

If you believe in “Vodoo Dolls”..

Which the Informer is scared enough to believe…

Can you imagine the things Cavs fans are going to be doing to their Lebron dolls come Tuesday night…

Honestly if Lebron is walking down the court on Tuesday night and just falls over grabbing his ankle the Informer will not be surprised when they cut to some “Very Southern” looking lady in the top section of the stadium laughing in total joy…

Advantage - -Sorry Seattle…But the Decision cost the city of Cleveland the “King”…

Then again if Durant is who we think he is…

Take it back…

Bad Karma Draw….

3. Westbrook vs. Wade….

Listen if Westbrook is hitting his pull up 18ft jump shot the Thunder cant be beat…

Then again if Lebron plays like he has in these playoffs (30-double digit rebounds-numerous assist) and Wade shows up like we all expect him to the Heat are unbeatable….

Seriously Wade is still a top five player in the game….If Healthy…Is he Healthy…Sure didn’t look like it in the Celtics series…

The scary thing is Lebron figured out in game six he doesn’t need Wade…So if he gets anything out of him in this series…(Which the Informer fully expects he will) then in the words of Reggie Miller..FOUND MONEY….

4. Who is better in the Open Court

For the last two years the best and most spectacular plays in the open court have been Wade/Lebron throwing Alley-Opps to each other…

They are unstoppable in the fast break….

Well the same can be said for Westbrook and Durant in the open court….

They might not have the consistent oop dunks..But they are damn near unstoppable in the open court…

Throw in Hardens ability to get to the hoop whenever he wants and the Informer is just Gosh Damned tickled pink at the thought of these two teams running and gunning…

Advantage - -Sorry Sonic fans there is no stronger force in the open court then Lebron with his head down…

5. The Role Players

Thunder - Fisher Iblacka Perkins and the Shefalosushi Guy….

Heat - -Battier Chalmers and One of the tall guy with braids….

Advantage - -Its gotta be the Thunder…Listen Iblacka is going to be a stud defensive player along the line of Dikembe Mutumbo… “WHO WANTS TO SEX MUTOMBO”

The guy did lead the league in blocks this year…By over 100...It is actually like 200 hundred but the Informer is not near a real enough journalist to look up the actual stats….

6. Bosh vs. Harden

It sounds like Bosh is going to continue to come off the bench…Because you know any time you can keep your best big man off the floor for extended periods of time it’s a must…Again good coaching Spolstra…

But like Harden it don’t matter…Bosh will get  his minutes and if he plays like Bosh can play (See game 7 of the Celtics Series) he is still the 5th best player on the floor…(James, Durant, Wade, Westbrook, Bosh…Err Harden?)

Maybe Harden is the 5th best player on the floor…

At times he is actually probably going to be one of the three best players on the floor…

He is that good…

The guy gets to the rim whenever he wants and more importantly whenever his team needs him to…

O and He makes the big shots and runs the pick and roll to a “T”…

Seriously looks at the Stats whenever the Thunder are struggling for points they  give Harden the ball and he makes the play that gets his team back into the game…

Just ask the Lakers and Spurs who were o so close to winning games only to be knocked off by the “Beard”

Sadly the Informer (due to personal reasons) had to shave his Harden Beard today…Just know the Bearded warrior is going to be a difference maker in this series….

And if the Heat are smart and actually let Bosh play he is the same kind of difference maker…(See Easing him in by not playing him in the fourth quarter of game 5 of the Boston series)

Again Bosh is one of the Big three and perennial All-Star for a reason….

Advantage - -Gotta Go Thunder..Sorry Harden is going to make big plays in this series…Bosh will to but you have to worry about the Coaches over thinking his playing time…

Note To Miami - -The guy is healthy…Put him in the game…let him make plays….

7. The Ghost Of Lebron

It has to be brought up only because everyone else in the world-wide media is going to say it…

“Until Lebron does it in the Finals it don’t matter”

The Informer hates this argument because again Lebron has now led three teams to the“NBA Finals”…

Sadly Lebron is 0-2 to date…

If you  Include losing three different Eastern Conference Finals he is obviously scared of the big stage…

(Informer Note - -That means Lebron has played in what 6 NBA Eastern Conference Finals….That means every year his team has a chance at a title…Do you think the Sacramento King fans or the Washington Wizzard fans would trade  places with their teams in order to have the failure Lebron on their team?)

But yes it has to be mentioned…

Which Lebron is going to show up…

The guy who single-handedly beat the Celtics last round or the Lebron that disappeared against the Mavericks last year…

The Informer maybe alone in this but he fully expects Lebron to average damn near a triple double…

He would say a full-fledged triple double but can you really count on Lebron getting 10 assists when he is passing the ball to open teammates “Chalmers, Haslem and Battier”…

8. Derek Fisher

The Informer kids….

9. The Refs

It has to be mentioned…

The Refs have tried to control to many games this NBA playoffs…See Pierce/Lebron fouling out…See Lebron taking 24 free-throws…See Kobe having two fouls obviously picking up his third only for the refs to cal it on the no-name….

The Refs have been sketchy at best in these playoffs…

Hopefully they don’t ruin the Outcome of this potentially great “NBA FINALS”…

10. The Informer Gambling

We all know the Informer sucks at gambling….

But he did put a wager on the Heat winning in six games…

Its pays 8-1...

He also put a wager on Lebron total points and assist being over 36 for game one…

And Durant scoring over 28 points for game one….

Advantage - -Obviously if the Informer is taking the Heat bet the Thunder…

The Lebron and Durant wagers….

Well that’s free money people…

See you tonight….

Game one starts at 730 on ABC…

The NBA ITS FANTASTIC….

(Informer Prediction - -Guys the Heat are going to win this series…The Informer will be wearing his Durant Sonics Shirtze hoping he is wrong…But older and Wiser Jordan and Pippen (Lebron/Wade) will beat younger and better Jordan and Pippen (Durant/Westbrook)

"Game 7"

Before we get started with tonights game 7 blog the Informer would like to point out that it is technically the Informer’s beautiful blonde wife’s birthday (June 10th) yet the Informer feels he has to have more cowblog…


"The Informer has a fever...and the prescription is more NBA"

For God Sake’s its game “F*cking Seven”….

Win or Go Home….

Lebron vs. the Big Four….

The Informer is predicting the Heat will win…Lebron will shine…But no the Informer would not bet his “Kobe Bryant 1996 Upper Deck Rookie Card On It”…

Which basically means the Informer would not bet $25 dollars…Since that’s how much the card is worth…

Yes the Informer still collects cards…Sue Me…

Enough with the “Mumbo Jumbo” The Informer’s “Little Smokey” is “Hard as a Boiled Egg” and ready to pop like a sixteen year old's zits….

“Informer what in the blue hell does that mean?”

The Informer has a “BISP”…

God I love Game 7’s…

PS Lebron averages 36 points in two career games sevens…

The Informer made two prop bets…Rando will have over 10.5 assists…And Wade will make over 4.5 free throws…

Also not going to do a full out running diary just going to give a quarter by quarter report…

Lets see how the game changes with each 12minutes…

First Quarter Report - -

Informer - 4 Orange Juice beers…

You ask how the Informer can pull of drinking four orange juice beers and watching basketball on his wifes birthday…

Easy The Informer picked her up an “Amazon Kindle Fire” by clicking through the Informer’s site to get to amazon…Seriously the gadget is amazing..She wont put it down…

Miami Heat 1st quarter - -Lebron had 8 points and a monkey block on Rondo…But for some reason did not seem to have same intensity as the game six..Seemed to be trying to let everyone else get into the game…

With that said Battier hit two big threes and Wade nutted a pretty and one layup…

Would say the heat played about a 6 out of 10 for their best basketball…

Would probably be why they are losing after one…

Boston Celtics - At one point went on a 17-2 run…

Rondo Locked In…

Garnett Locked In…

Pierce Driving to the hoop trying to be locked in…

And Ray Allen…Ray only have 5 points on 2-2 shooting..But he also had one three pointer wiped away because of a poor screen by the Stiffwhiteman guy…

Listen if Ray Allen is locked in and going to make baskets this game is over…

We all new Rondo and Garnett would be there..But the Celtics have gotten a total of nothing from Allen all series…

So far to night 2-2 officiall…3-3 unofficially..Including two threes..

O and the Celtics put up 27 points…

27-23 After First..Def looks like Celtics can win this game…

Second Quarter Preview--

11:00 Minutes Left--Why Is Bosh Still Coming Off The Bench?

10:54 - -Pierce for three…Heat In Trouble?

(The Informer has decided that he is going to use the Paranthesis whenever he wants to make a point mid quarter…This time the informer just wanted to mention that he cant wait to watch the new “TED”  movie..You do realize its from the "Family Guy" writer correct…#cant miss)

(Paul Pierce is looking like that old man in the YMCA games right now..#Doesn’t miss from the 3point line)

(Garnett Now Has Three Fouls…Two of them on setting screens…FOR THE LOVE OF F*CK WHEN WILL THE OFFICIALS REALIZE THAT WE DON’T WANT THEM DECIDING THE OUTCOME OF THIS GAME..Garnett stays in the game though)

(8 Assist for Rondo…Seriously its free money….Ray Allen still has not missed…Heat not playing with any urgency…the Informer getting drunk that’s three times in a row he forgot to fast forward the commercials…Hashtag want to play with my wife’s Kindle Fire….Which you can buy through amazon..Just click on the banner at the top of the page….)

(That’s a great “Refs You SuCk” Chant by the Miami Crowd..The Informer was chanting with you at home in his living room…)

53-46 Halftime Score….

Overview - -What a great 2-1 fast break monkey dunk by Lebron James…

What a great “F” Bomb by the heat team walking into the half..Maybe someone at ESPN should have turned the mikes off….

And for those scoring at home Wade needs to make two free throws in the second half to cover one of his gurantees…And well…Rondo has 10 assists at half…Seriously if the Informer’s baby girl hadn’t just woke up screaming while the Informer was trying to take her last gummy bear the Informer would make the analogy that Rondo’s over under assist being 10.5 was like stealing candy from a baby….

Side Note - - The Informer doesn’t feed his baby girl gummy bears yet…But he needed to use her to make the analogy…

Miami Heat - - The Heat look like they are just hanging around…They didn’t try to go for the throat…it’s a strange team…At the same time they are right there just waiting to strike…

Battier played pretty good…

Bosh played like..Well like Chris Bosh..Again why is he not starting?

And really the Heat played pretty good basketball…

But…….

Boston Celtics - Shot 52 percent…

Boston has 8 steals….

Magic said it best… “Boston is doing all the little things..”

They are making all the hustle plays…

Paul Pierce has 13 points…

Garnett has three fouls but somehow it didn’t hurt Boston…That’s on you Miami…

And Ray Allen…He has 12 points…Missed a desperation three…And a forced layup…Else he is hitting whatever he wants….

Listen at the half the Informer is going to say this… “Boston Is Playing Like They Will Win”….

Miami is playing like they will “Win Or Lose” ‘O Well”

The Informer cant wait for the second half….

Maybe he should fast forward through the half-time…

Informer - -Reached his 8 beer limit…Going to have a 9th but then its done…Hey gotta go to work and pay the Diaper bills…

Informer Shout-Out---Hey Seth Poldberg…You’re the Informer reader of the week….And yes its as easy as commenting on the Informers face book page…But the Informer thanks you for reading….

Hey twitter people follow @therealinformer….

(Pierce And One…Blocking foul on Battier…Boston  up seven…followed by Battier for three..Miami down four…who had Pierce vs. Battier in the They will decide the game pool?)

(Seriously --Battier…4 threes?)

(Lots of Energy from Miami..Battier and Haslem scoring..Lebron making steals and getting every rebound…)

Ok lets stop with the paranthesis thing…How do you spell parenthasis.,? You know the () thingies…

61-61---Wade called for a foul..Rondo going to the line…Basketball is being played right now people…Seriously…Back and Forth….

5:45- - Wade taking over…two straight Jumpers…Heat lead…

5:17- Garnett..12pts 4 rebounds…

4:49- -Lebrons Jumper is not their tonight..lets see if  he starts going to the hoop…

4:26 - Chalmers huge layup…heat back up one…Brandon Bass turnover…

4:22 - -The Informer just got yelled at for opening his 9th  beer…#It is her birthday

3:28---When Lebron drives he cant be stopped..#Drive more often…

2:17 - -Wade is going to the line to cover the over…The Informer is predicting that Rando finishes this game with a triple double…O and its up and down the floor with serious energy…Its going to be a good finish people…KG is checking back in….

2:02- -Seriously Rando maybe the Informers new favorite player…Ps 11pts 12ass and 8 rebound…

1:21 --Correction Rondo 13pts…

Ok guys the Informer is calling a time-out….

In the Words of Dave Chapelles “white dad” character…

“TIME OUT”…..

Be back after the game..The Informer is going to enjoy whats going on…71-70 HEAT…

Take it back 73-73 going into the 4th…HOLY SH*T..>HOLY SHIT***

THIS IS AWESOME>>>THIS IS AWESOME>>>

Sorry thought this game deserved some wrestling chants…

Side note a drunken Informer just asked a pissed off birthday girl if he could go to OKC on Tuesday to watch game one of the NBA Finals….

“NO”….

You have to at least try right?

The Informer just bought Rajon Rondo’s rookie card off of amazon…

Bosh for three?…

Again why has this guy not been playing?

RONDO just beat at 6 10 guy in a jump ball…Followed by a Garnett jump hook…

The Informer loves Rondo…


9:07 left 4th quarter --Lebron And One..>The Informer just fist pumped…I think the Informer is rooting for Miami…

80-79...

8:50 - -Jesus Shuttlesworth hits another three…In the words of Reggie Miller.. “Found Money”…

7:55- - That’s a King Monkey DUNK..>WOW…83-82

Side note..Lebron 25 pts 10 rebounds..0 assits….

Zero Assist…HuH?

Hey Lebron are you trying to channel your inner Kobe so people call you a closer?

109 playoffs straight playoff games with an assist for Lebron..Thanks to huge three by Bosh we now have 110.…

BOSH has 17 points…again why not starting?

Remember about three hours ago when the Informer said Lebron's jumper not falling lets see if he goes to the HOOP?..>Lebron is going to the HOOP…Heat by six…

88-82

4:14- -Hell of three by Lebron..Followed by two offensive rebounds by Wade…Rondo has triple double…the Informer is on leather recliners and chew…Perhaps you prefer pins and needles?

Heat by 5...

3:23 - -Lead is now nine..>Wade big FLOOOOOATER..

Miami crowd is in full front running mode…#THEY ARE LOUD…

PS BOSH 8-10 19 pts…But he was a bench player tonight….#why is he not starting?

Standing O to the Celtics…

The Informer loved how they played…

The Informer loved that Rondo and Garnett walked off early…

The Informer loved that Lebron again had over 30 points…

The Informer cant explain in words how excited he is for Tuesday night….

LEBRON VS DURANT







Friday, June 8, 2012

"KING LEBRON"

WAS IT JORDAN SCORING 35 POINTS IN THE FIRST HALF AGAINST THE PORTLAND TRAILBLAZERS?

WAS IT KOBE GOING FOR 48 POINTS AND 18 REBOUNDS AGAINST THE SACRAMENTO KINGS AS A TWENTY TWO YEAR OLD EFFECTIVELY STARTING THE SHAQ KOBE FEUD....

WAS IT LEBRON GOING FOR 48 POINTS WHILE SCORING HIS TEAMS LAST 30 POINTS TO SINGLEHANDIDLY DEFEAT THE PISTONS..

(NOT EXACT MATH..THE INFORMER KNOWS IT WAS ALOT OF POINTS IN A ROW)

IN REALITY IT WAS ALL OF THESE GAMES AND JUST A HINT OF "SEE EVERYONE I AM THE KING"..

LISTEN FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS LEBRON HAS BEEN UNABLE TO WIN....

DIDNT MATTER WHAT HE DID HE WAS GOING TO BE CRITICIZED AND BLAMED...

BLAMMED FOR NOT BEING JORDAN..

BLAMMED FOR BEING TO UNSELFISH (ALWAYS PASSING_..BLAMMED FOR BEING TO SELFISH(GOING TO MIAMI)

.BLAMMED FOR LETTING D-WADE TAKE OVER IN THE FOURTH QUARTERS....

BLAMMED FOR MAKING THE NBA FINALS BUT LOSING TO THE MAVERICKS AND THE SPURS...

HE IS CONSTANTLY IN A NO WIN SITUATION WHICH MAKES LAST NIGHT SO AMAZING...

THE GUY WAS DIALED IN...

STARTED THE GAME 10-11 FROM THE FIELD...

IF HE HAD MADE HIS FREE THROWS HE WOULD HAVE HAD 50...

HELL IF THE CELTICS WOULD HAVE SHOWED UP AND GAVE HIM A REASON TO KEEP PLAYING THE WAY HE WAS PLAYING HE WOULD HAVE HAD 60....

BUT THAT WAS THE BEAUTY OF HIS PERFORMANCE HE  KILLED THE CELTICS...

THERE IS NO DOUBT IN THE INFORMER'S MIND THAT THE HEAT ARE GOING TO WIN GAME 7 TOM NIGHT..

THE ONLY DOUBT FOR THE INFORMER,  WILL JAMES COME OUT WITH THE SAME LOCKED IN AND PISSED OFF ATTITUDE HE HAD FOR GAME SIX...

YOU KNOW THE ATTITUDE EVERYONE ALWAYS SAYS THAT LEBRON DOES NOT HAVE..

WHAT'S THE OLD SAYING..

"LEBRON CANT STEP UP IN BIG KEY SITUATIONS..."

WELL LAST NIGHT HE DID STEP UP...

IN A BIG SITUATION...

BACK AGAINST THE WALL..

.IN THE "BOSTON GARDEN"...

IN GAME SIX OF THE EASTERN CONFERENCE FINALS...

THE ONE PLACE THAT MAKES A GREAT PERFORMANCE EVEN GREATER....

AND FOR THOSE LIKE SKIP BAYLESS WHO WANTED TO SAY YEA LEBRON WAS GREAT BUT STILL IN THE 4TH QUARTER IT WAS WADE SCORING...

PLEASE...

GROW UP PETER PAN...

EVERYONE KNOWS THAT WADE IS GOING TO MAKE SOME PLAYS THROUGHOUT THE GAME..

IN FACT EVERYONE KNOWS THAT MOST FOURTH QUARTERS WADE MAKES NUMEROUS PLAYS..

.LAST NIGHT WADE SCORED 8-10 POINTS IN THE FOURTH QUARTER...

WITH THE HEAT WINNING BUY 19 F*CKING POINTS....

SERIOUSLY GROW UP SKIP BAYLESS...

THE REASON LEBRON DID NOT DO MUCH IN THE 4TH QUARTER IS BECAUSE HE HAD ALREADY DEFEATED THE CELTICS..

YOU KNOW WITH HIS 41 POINTS THROUGH THREE QUARTERS..

.WHILE WADE HAD A PEDESTRAIN 8 POINTS...

LEBRON MADE EVERY PLAY LAST NIGHT..

EVERY REBOUND...

BLOCKED SHOTS..

PLAYED SUFFOCATING DEFENSE...

LISTEN THE INFORMER IS ALL IN ON THE THUNDER THIS YEAR BUT WHEN LEBRON PLAYS LIKE THAT THE HEAT ARE NOT GOING TO BE BEATEN...

JUST REMEMBER TWO NIGHTS AGO THE INFORMER WAS WRITING HOW WE ALL LOVED WHAT DURANT DID SCORING 34 POINTS GRABBING 13 REBOUNDS...

THROUGH FOUR QURATERS...

LAST NIGHT LEBRON PUT UP 30 AND 9 IN THE FIRST HALF...

HE WAS AMAZING...

AT ONE POINT HE MADE A JUMPER THAT ONLY ABOUT THREE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD CAN MAKE AND THE INFORMER JUST SAT IN HIS CHAIR WITH A STUPID GRIN ON HIS FACE....

BECAUSE THESE ARE THE TYPES OF PERFORMANCES THE INFORMER LOVES...

THIS IS WHAT JORDAN USED TO DO...

WHAT KOBE AND WADE AND TMACH AND PENNY HARDAWAY AND BIRD AND DIRK AND EVEN DURANT HAVE DONE....

BASICALLY ITS A PERFORMANCE FOR THE AGES...

LEBRON HAS ALREADY HAD THESE TYPES OF GAMES ...BUT PEOPLE FORGET THAT...WHICH IS WHAT MADE THE INFORMER HAPPY...NOW AT LEAST FOR TWO NIGHTS PEOPLE HAVE TO COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW GREAT LEBRON IS...INSTEAD OF WHAT HE SHOULD BE DOING.....CAUSE LAST NIGHT HE DID WHAT HE SHOULD BE DOING...

JUST TAKE OVER THE GAME AND SAY IM THE BEST..

.DOESNT MATTER WHAT YOU DO MY TEAM WILL WIN...

FINALLY THE INFORMER IS ABSOLUTELY "GIDDY" THINKING OF THE POSSIBLILITY OF A LEBRON VS DURANT FINALS....

THE INFORMER SAID IT THE OTHER NIGHT BUT IT REALLY WOULD BE THE FIRST IM THE BEST PLAYER IN THE NBA FINALS SINCE JORDAN BEAT BARKLEY IN 93...JORDAN BEAT DREXLER IN 92..AND JORDAN BEAT MAGIC IN 91...


THE ONLY GRIPE THE INFORMER HAD LAST NIGHT WAS WITH ESPN..

SEE THE INFORMER BEING A MORON FORGOT TO RECORD THE GAME VIA VHS TAPE SO HE HAD TO WAIT AND WATCHED THE REPLAYED VERSION AT 2AM ON ESPN...

SOUNDS SIMPLE ENOUGH YOU FIGURE THEY WILL CUT OUT THE SIDE CRAP AND YOU CAN JUST WATCH THE MEAT AND POTATOES OF THE GAME...

INSTEAD ESPN WENT IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION...

KEPT THE PRE-GAME STUFF..

.KEPT THE MID-GAME COACH INTERVIEWS...

KEPT THE HALFTIME BREAKDOWNS...

KEPT THE FULL LAST 6 MINUTES OF THE 4TH QUARTER (AFTER LEBRON WENT TO BENCH)...

BUT THEY WERE ABLE TO CUT OUT 7 MINUTES OF THE THIRD QUARTER WHERE LEBRON SCORED 9 POINTS...

THEY CUT OUT ABOUT 10 MINUTES OF THE 1ST AND SECOND QUARTERS...

BOTH TIMES GOING TO SIX MINUTES WORTH OF COMMERCIALS...

SO THE INFORMER DOES HAVE A SMALL GRIPE...JUST A LITTLE ONE...

WHY IN THE "BLUE HELL" WOULD ESPN CUT OUT THE MEAT AND POTATOES AND LEAVE ALL THE EXTRA GARBAGE..

JUST LET ME SIT AND WATCH LEBRON SINGLE HANDIDLY DESTROY THE CELTICS...

"HEY INFORMER ITS 2:00AM ESPN DOESNT CARE..NOBODY BUT YOU IS DUMB ENOUGH NOT TO WATCH THE GAME AT NORMAL HOURS..STOP COMPLAING..."

YOUR RIGHT MR. FAKE READER..

THE INFORMER CANT COMPLAIN ITS HIS FAULT HE WASNT ABLE TO WATCH LEBRON BEAT THE CELTICS...

SINGLE-HANDIDLY...IS THE INFORMER SAYING THAT TO MUCH..ARE YOU GETTING THE POINT...LEBRON BEAT THE CELTICS....NOT THE HEAT...

AND NO WADE DID NOT HELP...

GARBAGE TIME FOURTH QUARTER POINTS WITH A 20 POINTS LEAD DOESNT MEAN WADE TOOK OVER THE GAME SKIP BAYLESS...

LAST NIGHT IT WAS LEBRON...

AND ONLY LEBRON...

HE HAS BEEN HEARING EVERYONE JUMP ON THE DURANT BANDWAGON SO LAST NIGHT IN THE WORDS OF FOOTBALL COACH "DITKA" LEBRON SAID "NOT SO FAST MY FRIENDS..."

45-15-5 ASSIST...19-26 FROM THE FIELD....

COLD BLOODED...

AND WE ALL GOT TO WITNESS....

SEE YOU TOM NIGHT FOR A GAME SEVEN THAT COULD MAKE THIS BLOG TOTALLY IRRELEVANT IF THE OLD DOGS CAN PICK THEMSELEVES UP OFF THE MAT...

Thursday, June 7, 2012

"The Son...THE THUNDER"

The Thunder are going to the NBA FINALS…

Yes the Informer said the Thunder…

Not the Sonics…

Not the Durants…

 The Thunder…

They just beat the hottest team in basketball four straight games…

The reverse sweep…

They started out losing two…

Then swept the Series…

Four Straight…

They went from three years ago taking the eventual champs (The Kobe’s) to a seventh game in the first round…

To be so close last year in the Western Conference Finals….

To making it to the NBA FINALS…

We watched Kevin Durant turn himself into a 23 three time scoring champ into the 23 year old super-star of the league….

We just finished watching The Thunder defeat the last three defending Western Conference Champs…

The Mavericks..Last years Champs..

The Lakers the Last three year Champs…

The Spurs the only other team besides the Mavs and Lakers that have made the finals in the last 14 years..

That’s old school basketball…

The Informer said it at the beginning of this series..

Saying the Thunder were like the old school Bulls who had to go through previous champs (Detroit, Boston, Lakers) to make it to the Finals/win the finals…

The Informer had enough nerve to say this team reminded him of the 91 Bulls…

And yes that is a shamless plug because the Informer said this on Saturday night only to have real writers like Bill Simmons say it Monday Night…

Or for Wilbon and Magic to say it Wend night…

(Yes the Informer just abbreviated Wend because he has no idea how to spell that day of the week)….

But like the 91 Bulls this team is just young and ready….

Will they win the title who knows…

But they got there…

Now they have to wait and see if an old Celtics team can close out Miami…

Or will we get the first Best Player Alive Series since the 1993 Suns/Bulls Series….

For tonight we have Durant who played like we want our Superstars to play….

We had Westbrook play like the athlete/gunner/scorer that makes him so dangerous…

And of course we had Derek Fisher…

The Informer would be a hypocrite if he didn’t give Fisher his due…

The Guy that the Informer has joked about all series/last five years…

You know the old guy who keeps shooting no matter what….

And you know what Fisher did…

He hit two big fourth quarter shots….

Like he has done in all five of his Championships…

He just hits big shots when called upon….

The guy is not scared of a big shot….

Never has been….

22-43...

That’s what Harden Durant and Harden finished with…

That’s over 50 percent shooting in a close out game  of the Western Conference Finals…

That’s efficient…

Before we keep talking about the young guns….

The Informer would be remised if he didn’t give a standing ovation to the Spurs….

The old man Tim Duncan put in 25-14...

Captain Jack was 6-6 from three point land…Early…(Finished 6-7)

Tony Parker had 29-12...

You know the old saying Valiant in defeat…

That was the Spurs…

Please read the following story about Tim Duncan…

And no Mr. Question this is not a link to getting “Rick Rolled”….

It’s a link about Tim Duncan…#Respect

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1198491/5/index.htm


With that said for the first time since 1998 the Spurs, Lakers or Mavericks will not be representing the Western Conference….

That’s running through the Gauntlant….

The Thunder apparently took that death sentence  (down 0-2)and realized just because you have youth doesn’t mean you cant be great….

That’s winning….With Youth…That’s facing Adversity…with Youth

Now the Spurs have some gripes there was def some home town home cooking fouls going their way…(Justin you were mad the other night because the Spurs were getting those calls at home…The fouls even out)

But the fouls did not win this game…

The Thunder did…

And the Thunder are going to be tough to beat…

You know whats fun…

The 91 Bulls played against an aging Lakers team that somehow scratched and climped their way to the NBA Finals…

You know the same way that a certain “Old Team” out East is doing….

Then again Shaq said it best….

“The world wants to see Lebron/Durant”

The Informer would agree….

See you tom night in Boston/Informers basement…

OKC we will see you next Tuesday…..

You just made the NBA FINALS…….
