Serge Ibaka returns to lineup as Thunder win first game of Western...

Although some sports outlets stated that Oklahoma City Thunder C Serge Ibaka would be out for the rest of the playoffs. He returned after missing only 2 games! Ibaka was a force to reckon with in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals with 15 points and 4 blocks. Most importantly, he helped his team win a much needed Game 3 and get some footing in a series that has been very outmatched. (Next game will be played in Oklahoma City on May 27th.

In the past couple of years we have seen a trend that is revolutionizing the game of basketball. Moreover, it seems that players are leaning to consider the idea of joining superstars and have the best chances to compete for the NBA championship. This movement started with the moves of former Cleveland Cavalier Lebron James and former Toronto Raptor Chris Bosh. They decided to join forces with superstar Dwyane Wade in Miami and suddenly they became the offensive juggernaut that the league was missing. But for us fans, is this good or bad? We might have to consider the fact that all these players play for two main purposes: they play to provide us the best entertainment they could offer and they play in order to win championships. But what happens when they have to choose between loyalty or winning? They have the tough decision to either stay on their current teams or leave to a better team. People tend to get upset when a player leaves a team and they immediately start judging because th player "needs help" or "he can not win by himself" My question to you guys is, What would you do if you were on their shoes? Just think about it and perhaps we would understand a little more about their decisions

In the modern day era of the NBA there is an emergence of a powerful force of young talented players who are changing the game as we know it. Players like Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant or Chicago Bulls' Star Derrick Rose are playing in a higher paced and higher scoring style of play which has yet to be seen in the NBA's history. Since the merger, teams are scoring a higher amount of points (partially from the creation of the 3 Point Line) and changes to the rules to help the game become safer and more family oriented. In the current style of play, young players are becoming more and more important as there is a large amount of veteran players who are aging out. Players like those mentioned before, and players like current Celtics' Point Guard Rajon Rondo or fan favorites Lebron James and Dwayne Wade, are sky rocketing the NBA to a world wide spectacle and driving its popularity to an all-time high. The current young players in the NBA are a surging force and the talent gets better and better as the years pass by. Only time and hope can tell where the league's current talent and future talent with hold.
