James Harden is the Best 6th Man Ever...Period

Usually if I'm talking about someone in their 3rd year as a professional and calling them the best ever at something it's probably a joke.  Not in this case though.  I seriously think this guy should come off the bench for the rest of his career.  He still gets great minutes and puts up big points.  No reason for him to ever change from the 6th man role. And honestly...

Thunder have chance to make this year their turn

Thunder's confidence keeps growing

Only 15 teams in NBA history have overcome a 2-0 deficit to win a playoff series. Oklahoma City hasn't done that yet, but a series that once seemed lopsided is tied 2-2.
