The young talent of the Thunder's "big three": The Oklahoma City Thunder are a relatively new member of the contender crowd. Just two years ago, they gave the Lakers a rough time in the first round and we all knew they would just get better and better. Now, their time seems to have come.
The talented foursome of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, and James Harden's beard have only lost one playoff game so far and could eliminate the Lakers tonight after pulling out two close games in the last three. Although Tinseltown isn't the only place scared of them.
Many experts have chosen the San Antonio Spurs to make the finals and eventually prevail, but they will have to get through the Thunder first.
