NewsOK Sports 10:01 a.m. Berry Tramel is live at 11 a.m. Join him on the Power Lunch chat, where he'll be answering your questions on Thunder-Spurs and more.

In case you missed it, here's Tramel's column from Tuesday on the lineup changes Scott Brooks has gone to in the Western Conference Finals:
Berry Tramel 10:52 a.m. Hey, everybody. I'm up and running from H&H Shooting Sports, I-40 and Meridian. I'll be out here doing my online chat and probably grab some lunch at the 4U Cafe, where everything I've tried is good. So come on out and say hello. We'll start chatting in a few minutes.
Berry Tramel 10:58 a.m. OK, let's get started.
Guest 10:58 a.m. Hey Barry, if thunder win tonight, do you think the series turns in their favor and they can win one in SA?
Berry Tramel 10:58 a.m. Turns in their favor? That's a little much. But a horse race? Definitely. I think the Thunder can win in San Antonio. OKC is 5-0 against the Spurs with Ibaka.
Layton 10:59 a.m. With either a series win or loss, do you think Reggie is a permanent fixture in the starting lineup?
Berry Tramel 10:59 a.m. I don't know about Miami. If the Thunder somehow beats the Spurs, I'd have to think about it. But I'd say it's likely Jackson continues to start. And I'd say it's quite possible that Jackson becomes the starter next season.
Bryan 11:00 a.m. Do you think there is still some lingering animosity towards the OSU baseball program over the Andrew Oliver case from 2008? I'm not crying outright conspiracy here; however, to be considered a team that just missed out on being a national seed, to then being relegated to what feels like a 16-seed and having to play the national #1 seed on their home field if OSU is lucky enough to navigate their pod of Nebraska and Cal State Fullerton - seems like an unfair assignment. I'm all about "to be the best, you have to beat the best" but come on! I don't think this OSU team deserves to have to play Oregon State in the Super Regional. Your thoughts?
Berry Tramel 11:00 a.m. I think everyone overrated OSU's chances at a super regional. If you followed the RPI, OSU was never near the top eight. In fact, OSU wasn't in the top 20 until very late in the season. I don't think OSU ever was in the discussion for a Super. Andy Oliver had nothing to do with it.
dj 11:01 a.m. Would you ever consider starting Reggie at the point and moving Russell to the 2 full time?
Berry Tramel 11:01 a.m. No. I like the ball in Westbrook's hands. There are 29 coaches in the NBA who would vote to make JAckson the point guard. They would love not having Westbrook coming at them every possession.
dj 11:01 a.m. Are you surprised by Steven Adams?
Berry Tramel 11:02 a.m. Sure. Who isn't? The guy keeps getting better and better. He's made amazing strides. I think he'll be the starting center next season.
dj 11:02 a.m. With Steven Adams developing do you believe thunder got robbed on the Harden trade?
Berry Tramel 11:03 a.m. I never thought the Thunder got robbed.
