    Re: NBA Playoffs?

    I haven't kept up with the NBA in years, but this year I decided to. I absolutely love the Chicago Bulls and I think Luol Deng is going to be a BIG TIME player in a year or two. They are a long shot because the Pistons are good, but I'm really rooting for the Bulls.

    Mavs have to get past Phoenix or San Antonio first. I don't see that as a lock. I'd prefer to see my hometown team or Phoenix represent the West in the Finals.

    If Dirk doesn't play better than he did in Game 1, the Mavs won't get past Golden State.

    I didn't realize Chuck Hayes was even in the NBA, let alone the Houston Rockets. I'm cheering for them now. Looks like he has a pretty big role on their team too.

    As far as Kelenna, I truly believe he would have been a lottery pick had he waited to declare at least one more year.

    Oh Kelenna lost himself at least a few million dollars by pulling the stunt that he did, family reasons be damned.

    Was that why he declared? I was pretty mad at him when it happened, as he was my favorite player and figured he would end up a franchise player in the NBA some day.

    Yeah his dad was in prison and he got some REALLY BAD ADVICE that he could help his family out by going pro. At the end of the day, he didn't do SQUAT for his family, and would have done a BUNCH more for his family had he gone back for that one more year.

    That was always his rap.

    I'll say a Suns in the west. I love the way Steve Nash plays basketball although Amare Stoudemire will be the key.

    I think the Mavs have a tiny choke bone in their throat and may have a tussle on their hands with the Warriors.

    I think the Rockets are the dark horse. Yao has made himself into a player.

    Spurs are just a little old now.

    Pistons in the east.

    The Cavs may make a run if LeBron continues to show up for games.

    I think the Bulls are where the Cavs were last year, i.e. gee look, we made it to the playoffs, whoa baby, this is intense.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Only thing is, this is the Bulls' third straight playoff trip.

    I'll go Cavs-Suns final. Suns in 5.

    Honestly, I don't see the Cavs getting passed the Nets. And if they do, can they beat Miami/Chicago/Detroit?

    I see you don't think much of the Raptors and their 3 seed.

    Cavs went 2-1 vs. the Nets during the regular season.

    vs. Chi 2-2
    vs. Det 1-3
    vs. Mia 1-3

    I just have this gut feeling that LeBron is going to will them to the finals.

    I didn't mean could they beat them. Obviously they can beat them, but in a series?

    Miami, Detroit are different teams in the playoffs.

    Oh and I've just had a gut feeling about the Nets upsetting the Raptors. I like them, but just feel like inexperience might hurt them in the playoffs. Plus, the Nets are playin good ball right now. It is also their last run. Carter will probably opt out in the off season and Kidd is declining more and more each year.
