    NBA Playoffs?

    Anybody watching this? The Pacers aren't in so I haven't really watched many games very closely, except the Magic and Pistons games. That's because Grant Hill has always been one of my favorite players and I'm glad to see him healthy and I like JJ Redick.

    I was very surprised to see the Nuggets beat the Spurs, but I think the Spurs will still win that series fairly easily.

    I'll watch the Cavs, but I have no interest in this first series vs. the Wizards because it shouldn't even be close.

    Re: NBA Playoffs?

    JJ doesn't play though. Kinda surprised by that actually. I thought he'd log in alot of minutes this year.

    I was surprised by the Spurs and Mavs both losing. For those who like to watch the "team oriented" basketball, it seems as if its changing back.

    Mavs vs Warriors
    Mav's play decent team ball, same for GS

    Jazz vs. Rockets
    Jazz play pretty well all together. Rockets are more of a two man team, but its better than just one, I guess.

    Spurs vs. Nuggets
    Spurs are definitely a team oriented team. Nuggets however are a two man show

    Suns vs. Lakers
    Suns are probably the best at distributing it to everyone. Lakers are anti-team oriented.

    In the east:

    Pistons vs. Magic
    Pistons are one of the top team oriented teams. Magic is ok at it, no one really stands out completely.

    Heat vs. Bulls
    Heat have a two man show, slowly turning into one. Bulls are a good team oriented team.

    Raptors vs. Nets
    Raptors are decent at it, Nets are okay but mostly end up just giving it to Carter.

    Cavs vs. Wizards
    Both are one man shows. Yuck.

    He got right before the season started and was out for a while and I think that hurt him. But when he came back he was getting some regular minutes, but in the first game of the playoffs he didn't play at all. I was kind of surprised by that, but he probably doesn't match up well against the Pistons.

    Redick is a replaceable role player in the NBA, IMO. He has a hard time creating his own shot.

    I've got the Suns and Pistons in the finals, btw.

    Thats a pretty safe bet. I'm rooting for Suns v. Bulls.

    I'm seriously considering shelling out the bucks it'll take--and it'll be expensive--to get some good cavs playoff tickets to reward myself for making it through 2L. Never been to an NBA playoff game.

    Chuck Hayes sighting. For Houston, he has 4 of their 8 points so far.

    Yeah Chuck looked like he had a good game in the first game as well, although I wasn't watching particularly closely.

    Simply amazing what he has coaxed out of that 6'5" frame of his.

    It depends on how hard he wants to work. When Reggie Miller came into the league he was a replaceable role player. Shooting the basektball is something team's can always use. I think he's going to have a fine career, not a star or anything but a good player. Missing most of the season hurt his development this year. And I think that's why he's not playing in the playoffs.
