Hello Thunder fans,
My name is Kevin, if couldn't have already guessed it, and I am a Denver Nuggets fan. I learned to count by watching Dikembe Mutumbo and Mahmoud Abdul Rauf (formerly Chris Jackson) get rebounds, blocks, steals, and hit 3s. I was there for the horrendous 90s (thank you, Bernie Bickerstaff), the bright parts of the Carmelo era, the Melo-drama, and now the exciting new-look Knuggets.
Anyway, I just wanted to say that I despise just about everyone else that will make the Western Conference playoffs except for the Thunder, and to a lesser degree, the Trailblazers.
In fact, I feel like everyone in Denver really likes the Thunder, and if we lose in the playoffs, I only want it to be to the Thunder. Everyone here really likes the fire and intensity Durant and Westbrook bring, and personally, I really like Kendrick Perkins and his defensive tenacity.
I am posting here because I expect the next 9 games to be as physical and brutal as they come. Yes, I did say 9 games, because I'm pretty sure the series will go 7 games. As moderator of Denverstiffs.com Nate Timmons said, "A good playoff series can really sour fanbases against each other" and I couldn't agree more. The two teams I loathe the most in this league (sans Heat) are the Spurs and Lakers.
So before we start hating each other and cultivating a new, heinous rivalry over the next few years, I wanted to say good luck to you guys and congratulations on having a great, respectable team.
Let the games begin. :)
