Not to put the cart in front of the horse, but after the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night to win the Western Conference, it will be hard for some Boston fans not to start daydreaming about a potential NBA Finals matchup between the Celtics and old friend Kendrick Perkins.

Alas, there's plenty of work still to be done by the Celtics. Boston owns a 3-2 edge over the Miami Heat with Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals on Thursday night at TD Garden. Feel free to sound off with your thoughts on Oklahoma City in the comments section.
