Durant and Westbrook were too much for Kobe and Kobe. Pau Gasol was a virtual no-show in the series, and he will be discussed in trade scenarios in the off season. Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant had a great series to get past the Lakers in the conference semi-finals. Both the Spurs and Thunder stomped on their opponents, and this should make for a hell of a series. The Lakers will go home empty handed, and their off season will be quite busy because the current Lakers team does not have enough to win.
