Can Kevin Durant lead the Thunder to the NBA Finals?

The Oklahoma City Thunder are a very talented and young squad that seem to have hit their stride and quickly become one of the best all-around teams in the NBA. With that being said, no is surprised just how far they have come in the NBA playoffs thus far, but whether or not they can get past a more experienced and battle tested Dallas Mavericks squad in the Western Conference Finals remains to be seen.

Even though they probably won’t get much love in NBA picks and the Dallas Mavericks will most likely be favored to be the team to advance to the NBA Finals in the West, the Oklahoma City Thunder have been given the reputation for pulling off upsets and embracing the underdog role.

With that being said, I believe the Western Conference Finals could easily become a long series that has the potential of going the full seven games.
