09:18 PM ET 04.27 | Oklahoma City Thunder star point guard Russell Westbrook will miss the remainder of the playoffs after undergoing surgery on a torn meniscus. It was revealed Friday that Westbrook would require surgery, but there was still an outside shot that he would be able to return to postseason play if they Thunder make a deep run. Westbrook suffered the injury in Game 2 of the Thunder's series against the Houston Rockets when Patrick Beverley lunged at him while Westbrook was attempting to call a timeout. Beverley collided with Westbrook's knee, though the former first-round pick stayed in the game. Westbrook finished with 29 points, five rebounds, four assists and four steals. This is a huge blow to the Thunder's title chances, as second-year guard Reggie Jackson replaces the All-Star in the starting lineup.

That's a downright shame. I was sure this year's finals was going to be a repeat of last year. Looks like the only repeat will be Miami Heat winning the title however, it may just be against the Spurs.

This may be karma for the Thunder moving the team out of Seattle.Note that I use the word "may" - because no one can know for sure how karma acts.All we know is that it *does* act.

So do you think the Kings move or they expand to 32 teams

And do we really know that Karma does act?? I don't think so. Does it follow the laws of physics and is affected by gravity?

The Kings move.I would propose letting the Clippers then move to Sacramento to back-fill the void, allowing the Clippers to get their own town and their own arena as well.

The evil and despicable mini-Donald won't move the team to Sac-town, He jilted San Diego because he wanted a stage in La-la-land. Sacramento isn't even the third choice out of those three cities.

Very funny. I say that primarily because I used the same word, "insightful", for a similar posting on a different thread.

I think OKC will be just fine...may even play a little harder now that they have one of their players hurt in the course of the playoffs. Only time will tell. I wouldn't count the Thunder out just yet.
