Nobody's got the flu. Nobody's at risk of getting fired if they lose tonight. Nobody's bitching about laptops in the huddle. The fast turnaround from Game Seven at Staples to Game One in OKC tonight has squeezed out the time-killing, media-filler subplots, leaving just a basketball game to worry about. The Thunder are favored by 7 1/2 tonight, indicating a deep and widespread pessimism about the Lakers' chances. There's a real possibility the weary Lakers will mail this one in, hoping to make their stand and get their road split Tuesday night when the balance of fatigue is more even.

Sample a beverage from Thunder Road Brewing Company's delicious product line whenever someone mentions:

  • Kendrick Perkins's strained right hip,
  • How MWP won't fist-bump James Harden,
  • Something about Derek Fisher facing his former team,
  • How Kevin Durant beat out Kobe Bryant for the scoring title, or
  • "Rest versus rust."

Now who wants a PIECE OF THIS COMMENT THREAD?!?
