Thunder in 6, maybe 5.
I'm also slightly rooting for OKC, even though I don't dislike the Heat.
Just throwing out some thoughts here:
I like Wade's playing style alot; the fluidity and grace of movement. I hugely respect Lebron. I don't particularly care for Bosh.
Durant is both an awesome player and genuinely seems like a really good guy. I respect, but don't really like Westbrook; he can be kind of a 'b***h,' for lack of a better word (ala Rondo). Ibaka is consistently solid, though rarely spectacular. And Hardin is capable of taking over games from off the bench, which is incredibly rare.
Fisher and Battier are each capable of giving their teams big boosts, particularly if they're hitting their 3's.
Durant has to be the most likeable superstar in the league. I don't know anyone that dislikes him.
I think the outcome of the series will essentially come down to the Heat's ability to play at their very best. OKC is more consistent with more depth of talent to spread around the need for individual excellence. If the Heat are at their best for 4 of the games, they will likely take the series. If each team plays okay, or pretty well, OKC will win. I expect the Heat will be great for a couple of games, but won't be able to maintain individual excellence for enough games to take it.
