Alright, official thread for discussing the NBA Playoffs until someone's crowned. I'm going to predict right now that it *won't* be a Heat repeat, and I promise I thought that even before today's first-round loss to the Bulls. Predictions? I think a lot of people are discounting the Suns, but honestly, I think they have a serious shot this year. Dallas has been incredible all season, but look what happened to the Pistons last year after a similar romp through the regular season (note: I know that the Mavs this year are a better team than the Pistons were last year, I'm just saying that regular season record shouldn't be everything). T-Mac looked really good in the second half tonight against the Jazz. Good to see him get going after a bad first half--he was taking a beating from the announcers tonight for the first half or so. Speaking of announcers, I'm debating muting the TV whenever Walton's announcing. There's only so much egregious hyperbole a man can take in an evening.
