Eye on Basketball Podcast: The Thunder's path to the Finals

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Royce Young joins me for the podcast today to discuss selling ads on jerseys and the Oklahoma City Thunder's road to the NBA Finals. We start off with the news that Adam Silver says ads on jerseys are "inevitable" for the league. How opposed to this are we or should we be? Won't it be successful in the same way "world football kits" are with selling ads on their jerseys? What would be the proper placement on jerseys? How much money could it generate for the NBA?

Then we get to the Thunder's road to the playoffs and a possible (inevitable) showdown with the San Antonio Spurs. Can the Spurs stop the star power of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook? Do the matchups favor the Spurs in any way? Should the Thunder be afraid of having to possibly match up with the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round? Should we all hope to avoid a Thunder series against the Houston Rockets at some point? Is Caron Butler a bigger Derek Fisher?

We discuss all of this, plus the Mike D'Antoni's job status, Greg Oden as a contributor, and branding your children.
