On who he'd pick if the Thunder advances to play the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals:
I will pick Dallas. Homecourt advantage and the overall better team. But it should be a great series. And a little bit wild. Both teams are excellent road teams. We could see most anything.
On Thunder Grizzlies Game 6:
I think the Grizzlies will be ready for Game 6 and very likely will win. But I like the Thunder in Game 7. Hard to win Game 7's on the road.
On who's had a better series, James Harden or Nick Collison:
I'll go with Collison. Harden had a no-show game, and if you look at Collison's no-show game, Game 1, that was Brooks' fault. Only played him 15 minutes.
On the Thunder inviting former Seattle player Shawn Kemp to a playoff game:
I think it's bogus. I talked to two Thunder brass, and neither one knew anything about inviting Kemp.
