I think it’s important to point out that this is the best team we’ve played in the playoffs.............They’re better than the Lakers

I agree. The Lakers never played up to their potential in the playoffs, so I think Carlisle is right. Of course, normally there's no question who's the best team out of POR, OKC and LAL, but the way it has been in the postseason so far it has to be OKC.

OKC is a really good team. They scored over 100 multiple times against a dallas team before this series barely gave up 85

Maybe because you cant play defense? I won't expect Barrea to shut anyone down.

:laugh: Dallas has been one of the best defensive teams thus far in the postseason.

And everyone needs to relax it's true. OKC is easily the best team we played thus far.

Yup. Non story here.

At least for this postseason it's true.

Carlisle is right and it would be wrong for him not to say it because they are the last two teams left in the WC, even if you don't believe it it's tough to say there are better teams when they are not in the playoffs no more.

for this postseason, its obviously true. He isn't slighting the Lakers here. The Lakers didn't even resemble the Lakers of the last 3 years in this years playoffs.

We have no problem admitting our team played very bad this postseason,there are at least 6 teams who have played better.

Lol at all the threads trying to hurt Lakers fans,you can't hurt fans who support a ballclub who won 16 titles and counting.

When they played Lakers.. Dirk, Terry, Peja, and BArea got whatever they want and they didnt have to worry about Kobe driving or Pau Gasol at all...

This isnt saying much but Portland didnt play too bad either but just because OKC scored 100 on them means nothing cuz Portland doesnt is a slow pace team and barely scores 100

I totally agree. Not everyone is as fortunate to have a defensive presence at the 1 in Mike Bibby.

Dirk also said Bynum was the best center in the league... It's called respect for your opponent.

Portland at least has an argument. I thought they played Dallas really well.

The Thunder need to trade Westbrook for a playmaker, or acquire a pick because he and Durant just do not mesh well... At this point they could get a ridiculous package for him, if they do, they are going to be a dynasty.

If CP3 was to tell the Hornets he wasn't gonna sign a new deal with them, would they take Westbrook + Fillers + a pick for him?
