This is one of the best times of the playoffs for me. So many games everyday, it has that frenetic march madness feel to it. And there's always a game to watch at most times of the day. And this season is great because so many 7s and 8s are playing the top seeds tough
any other laker fans conflicted by the OKC/Denver series? i think the lakers will have a much easier time with denver, but somehow i just can't find myself pulling for them. cheer for kenyon martin? really?
The Bulls will have a really hard time once they get past the Pacers. With teams like Boston or Miami who can stay consistent throughout the whole game, they'll be in big trouble. All 4 games against the Pacers, they have been down all 3 quarters and just rally int he 4th and Pacers made a big enough lead in the last game that the Bulls couldn't overcome it. They are lucky that they get the Magic or Hawks in the second round and they only have to face either Miami or Boston and not both. It makes their chances better. Rose can't keep bringing them back all post-season long, someone else needs to step-up. Plus the way Rose drives carelessly, he is bound to get hurt and affect his gameplay then it'll be all over for the Bulls.
Remember when I said the Magic trade blew and almost everyone here said it was a good move because Dwight anchors that defense, well it is showing their big weakness now and they are stuck with huge contracts that they won't be able to keep Howard happy long enough to stay.
As for NY, losing Billups was big but outside of Billups, Amare and Melo, the team just plain sucks. I was high on Fields but dude just plain out suck, there were so much hype in the beginning but dude can't play for shit. Everyone else is D-League material in that team, the team really should fire that GM for giving away everyone for Melo. Who can they afford to add now?
Boston was impressive, Rondo is a beast but I am not sure if it is just a horrible Knicks team that they are playing that made them much better looking though. A Boston v. Miami Eastern Conference Finals would have been great to watch.
