Did OKC unravel in the playoffs against the team with the second best regular season record in the NBA? Naturally, Shank won't discuss that angle. It doesn't fit his narrative.

It would be more intellectually honest (if I can be allowed to use 'intellect' and 'Dan Shaughnessy' in an unironic sense in the same sentence) to say OKC simply ran into a buzzsaw when they engaged Golden State in the Western Conference finals. Once again, that would require a bit more honesty and a bit less hyperbole in his tweets, which Shank is either unwilling or unable to do.
