TULSA - In the second installment of Take 2, an off-the-cuff chat about sports and life experience, Big Al Jerkens and Russ McCaskey dished on the Thunder's chances against James Harden and the Rockets, and looked ahead to possible matchups against the Clippers, Spurs and the almighty Heat.
Big Al's take:
The Thunder will beat the Houston Rockets in five games.
James Harden and the Rockets will steal a game in Houston.
Despite that, the series is over.
Russell Westbrook is the fastest athlete in any sport.
He could be a shutdown corner in the NFL.
OKC will play the Spurs in the Western Conference Finals.
Gregg Popovich is without a doubt the best coach in the NBA.
San Antonio will still get beat by the Thunder.
The Heat will go unchallenged in the Eastern Conference.
Thunder will play against the Heat AND -- provided they win a game in Miami -- will dethrone the defending champs for the NBA title.
