The Perfect Fan Experience
Late Saturday night we all WITNESSED something special. The Thunder with another comeback victory, beat the Lakers 103-100, thanks to ANOTHER KD game winner. The Thunder was down 13 in the final 8 minutes before KD and Russell rallied the troops to victory. Russell scored 10 of his 37 points in the 4th, once again proving the Lakers point guard troubles have not been solved. But the story of this game to me is the changing of the guard in the NBA. Kobe who dominated the first 3 quarters, scoring 38 for the game, missed 8 of his last 10 shots most of which was bad shot attempts. KD on the other hand shot a 26 ft trey ball that gave the Thunder the lead with 13.7 seconds showing once again clutchness is in his DNA. Kobe had an opportunity to be Kobe but he couldn’t get a bucket in the last 10 seconds. This here shows that the torch is about to be passed. For the past 10 years Kobe has been the KING of the NBA with countless game winners and of course 5 rings but now it look like KD is ready to take that throne. Already sweeping the Mavs in the first round, The Thunder are now one game away from eliminating the pass two NBA champions. This is KD’s second game winner this series, now 2 up on Kobe. The Thunder are up 3-1 in the series heading back to OKC looking to close the Lakers in front of the best fans in the NBA.
