LeBron James gets hit in the face by Serge Ibaka, still finishes the dunk, and then immediately collapses to the floor. At 0:29 in, you can hear a great example of what Reggie Miller brings to a basketball telecast: 

LeBron has been down for twenty seconds, laying on the ground, and there’s a growing puddle of blood under his head. The astute Miller muses, “You’re wondering, did he take a shot from Serge Ibaka?” The alternative being that LeBron’s face was so excited about the dunk, it spontaneously started gushing blood, I guess. Later Miller added, “You’re wondering, is the team that scores the most points going to win this game?” and “Hey, remember when Diane von Furstenberg’s son hired a plane to tell me to stop pursuing married women?”

It was a gritty and grimy game tonight.
— Zach Randolph, describing Game Two against the Thunder, and really, every game of his NBA career.
I haven’t seen him on the bench. I haven’t played against him so I’m not worried about guys that’s not even in our series.
— Kevin Durant, who has no time for Royce White’s trash talk. Jordan Crawford has yet to weigh in.

"Oh no, send help immediately. IMMEDIATELY!"

Russell Westbrook is in fact a Ninja Turtle

Kevin Durant’s shoe game has always been out-of-this-world sassy. One of the many reasons to love KD.

I don’t like humble Durant. I like fired-up Durant.

2011-2012 DEFENSIVE PLAY OF THE YEAR
Russell Westbrook’s acrobatic block of Nic Batum, torquing his body to avoid contact.  Oh, and Rusty blocked this layup at the end of the 4th quarter.  Oh, and the game was tied.  Oh, and OKC ended up winning in OT.

The NBA Finals is a Game of Thrones…
And Kevin Durant leads House Thunder.
In the Westeros Conference, the Oklahoma City Thunder are House Stark, specifically the Stark children. The execution of Ned Stark and the burning of Winterfell is a bit too much like the unfortunate demise of the Seattle Supersonics. Because of this, the Thunder children have been on their own, growing wiser and bonding together in their new territory.
Kevin Durant is equal parts Robb Stark and Jon Snow (the bastard child of the Supersonics): the noble hero, destined to rule the Throne. Russell Westbrook is Arya Stark: rebellious and courageous; a fearless warrior despite his small stature. James Harden is Sansa Stark: once under the command of Metta World Peace and his elbow, “Hearteater”, he is now free and is looking to make a name of himself. The other two Stark kids, Bran and Rickon, are Serge Ibaka and Thabo Sefalosha, important role players and members of the main unit. There is also the addition of Derek Fisher and Kendrick Perkins: Osha and Hodor, experienced outcasts using their skills to help the Thunder in their quest for the Throne.
It is not yet certain if House Thunder will rule Westeros, but if not this year, then possibly next year, or the year after. Their time will come. Regardless of the outcome of this series, the Thunder have established themselves as a major House in the Six Kingdoms (Divisions), and will be a team to acknowledge in the seasons to come.
