Thunderstruck, Or A Different Weather Pun
The Thunder breakdown is one of the saddest subplots this year. A rematch of last year's Finals would have been the best possible outcome, matchup wise, but it seems as though Westbrook's knee injury will rob everyone of seeing Durant and LeBron go head-to-head again. Enter the Spurs, who dealt LeBron his first Finals loss in 2007 and who are a very fun team to watch, except I can't NOT think of them as the boring, plodding team they were in the early 2000s. They just don't get the blood going like a Thunder or Clippers or (please please please) Warriors matchup versus Miami.
