Lamar Odom and Matt Barnes for being the peace keeper.

He can come be annoying on this team. We need someone to come off the bench on the perimeter like him and just get buckets and go sit back down.

I can see us making it a series if we play the way we've been doing. Slow the game down. Move the ball through Kobe/Pau at the high post. Allow Dwight to make up for the defensive side of the ball. Team rebound.
We can win 2-3 games that way against them, especially in LA.

Not me.. They are tough, obviously, but they don't really have experience, they lost Gallo, and they don't really hit 3s.
OKC scares me more, they match up perfectly against us on D, and their scoring firepower has unlimited potential. If they play somewhat smark and minize their mistakes, they shouldn't have much trouble beating us..
-They've got inside defenders and post defenders (ibaka, perkins, collison)
-guys that can guard Kobe effectively in Thabo and KD, plus Westbrook whose athleticism can be bothersome
-3pt shooters (KD, Kmart, thabo, westbrook, jackson, fisher, even ibaka)
-inside scorers (KD, Westbrook, Ibaka)
-Role players that rebound, set screens, pass the ball and play D (Collison, Thabo, Ibaka, Perkins)
-Athleticism and youth (doesn't need explanation)
-a great home court in terms of fan support/loudness/officiating
-I can't remember the last time we beat them in OKC
