The Miami Heat have been here before.
For the Oklahoma City Thunder, the NBA finals will be an eye-opening experience.
All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook said Sunday he's "just going with the flow," and he doesn't think he'll really grasp it all until Game 1 arrives Tuesday night in Oklahoma City. He's not the only one.
The finals will disrupt the Thunder's routine, forcing them to abandon their practice facility and work out at the arena downtown. They'll also be surrounded by hundreds of additional media members.
Despite the heightened emotions and potential distractions, coach Scott Brooks thinks the Thunder will handle things well and be ready to play come Tuesday night.
