I like the initiative here, Sports Illustrated. Let's put some up-and-comers on the cover instead of the Heat, like everyone is expecting. After all, the Thunder took the Lakers to 7 in the last playoffs, and Durant led the league in scoring.
But Thabo Sefolosha and Nenad Krstic? The entire Thunder roster is stocked with flavor. I'll allow Thabo (though he's been pretty uncool as of late) but Nenad should never appear on a cover of Sport Illustrated. First of all, look at him. He's got a face that only a mother can love. A blind mother.
Why didn't you get Russell Westbrook or Jeff Green? You didn't ask them, did you.
