D"Antoni system is good when you have a very good point guard and athletic layers that can run up and down. I don't think that style will ever beat a more traditional lineup/style of play.

Did you click on the link or the article? It's from Lakers.com. lol8[1].gif

I think you are missing the point of the article because you are so mad for someone you don't care about.

Sheesh!

I love OTs in the playoffs.

Bulls just seems so out gunned on the offensive end.

They definitely are, but man do they show effort. Its been a ugly game at times, but pretty awesome. Both teams have been going at it the whole time. That Washington team is pretty entertaining. Noah is such a monster, the dude brings the ball up court, sets the offense, drives, rebounds, sprints back on defense, his motor is non stop.

Seriously great game to watch. Most entertaining series thus far. The Bulls have their hands full. Washington looks like they are going to win this series.

Was just about to post about the Bulls-Wizards game and figured no one would bother watching this series. laugh.gif

The local commentators here are going nuts

This is probably the best series in the East, only thing that will top it is Indianas series loss/implosion.

i agree about Bulls - Wiz being a great series. much closer than 2-0 might lead someone to believe, obviously. Beal is growing up really fast.

the bball gods evened it out after Hinrich got the most crucial call in the series after warding off. missed FT. ball don't lie, as a famous basketball philosopher once said.

was the best series - this one will end in 5. brooklyn vs raptors has been more competitive. bulls looks outmatched at every position you could even argue that noah's been outplayed by Nene.

Didn't expect the bulls to bow out in the first round but good for Washington. At least john wall will get to go second round

I like both the Bulls and the Wizards (and hoped they wouldn't meet first round frown.gif) but I'm more invested in Nets-Raptors just because I don't see the winner of Washington/Chicago going deep. Not a fan of the MIA-CHA and IND-ATL series

EDIT:

Actually I just took a look at RFX bracket pic above. If/when Washington wins first round, the potential Pacers/Hawks match-up could go the distance

I think the whole team is growing up very fast. Looks like the Nene acquisition is bearing fruit. He looks really good, Noah is really struggling with him.

This series is exactly what I was talking about a bunch of pages back, this looks tough, both teams are really struggling for every point. I know Chicago is overmatched here, but I'm hard-pressed to imagine a tougher defensive hill to climb then this team. Even against Miami. Should Washington finish this series, they would be the last team I'd want to face the next round.

The Atlanta Pacers game was brutal. I couldn't watch it, but loved the first one.

I think the 250-to-one odds for the Hawks have finally come true.
