@BrentGooden: Thunder fever. Just boarded delayed flight to OKC from HOU. Everyone glued to phones. Crew giving score update.

@ScottWilliams: I'd like to see Stephen Jackson and Kendrick Perkins in a cage fight.

@jeffcapel: Durant is a cold dude!!! Best scorer, by far, in the NBA. May be becoming the best player!
