    Playoff Time

    NBA playoffs start tomorrow. Who's everyone's pick for the finals?

    I'll go with Miami - San Antonio, with Miami in 7.

    This is one of the most wide-open playoffs that I can remember. I think whoever wins the Memphis- SA second round series comes out of the West.

    Re: Playoff Time

    Miami VS OKC... I will be pulling for OKC.

    That's if my Pacers don't upset the Heat in the second round...

    Can't tell you how jacked I am for these playoffs though...Miami vs NYK will be a good serious imo.

    Re: Playoff Time

    Chicago vs. OKC

    These playoffs will be excellent in my opinion
    My predictions round by round
    East first round West First Round
    Chicago beats Philly (4-1) San Antonio beats Utah (4-2)
    Miami beats NY (4-3) OKC beats Dallas (4-2)
    Indiana beats Orlando (4-0) Lakers beat Denver (4-1)
    Boston beats Atlanta (4-2) Clippers beat Grizzlies (4-3)

    2nd round 2nd Round
    Chicago beats Boston (4-2) San Antonio beats Clippers (4-3)
    Indiana beats Miami (4-3) OKC beats Lakers (4-2)

    3rd round 3rd round
    Chicago beats Indiana (4-3) OKC beats San Antonio (4-3)

    Finals: Bulls win (4-3)

    Is my Chicago Bulls bias showing? :)

    If the Bulls don't win, my money is on OKC

    Re: Playoff Time

    I'll take the Spurs over the Bulls in six. Then we can all have yet one more debate about whether or not the Tim Duncan era Spurs are a dynasty or not.

    I'll be shocked if the Clips get past Memphis. Memphis is a terrible match up for them.

    What I think will happen: Heat vs. OKC

    What I want to happen: Celtics vs. anyone, prefer the Lakers for revenge from game 7 in 2010.

    Re: Playoff Time

    I think Miami over OKC in 6. LeBron makes up for last year.

    Would love to see Chicago and OKC with OKC in 7.

    Not sure if Indiana will beat Miami, but they are going to really make them work.

    They are really active and aggressive inside to go against Miami's biggest weakness in that area. Granger is good enough offensively to make LeBron or Wade have to work on that end.

    If the Bulls are firing 100% I could see them roll through Boston or Atlanta, but if they're struggling or if Deng or Rose aren't healthy either of those series could be a war too. Bulls have proven they're deep enough to win a lot with several good players injured, but in the playoffs it will be harder to do that night after night against the same team.

    I think OKC is gonna tear through the West other than SA, and pull out the WCF in 7 like you said.

    Miami/Chi winner over OKC for your title, if someone other than Miami/Chi manages to get out of the East then OKC title.

    Who debates that one? The same people who don't think Kurt Warner is a hall of fame QB?

    Duncan's the most boring superstar in sports history but he's worked his way into top five of all time discussion. If that team isn't a dynasty we need to strip half the "dynasties" of that distinction. It seems in today's NBA that being a pompous egomaniac is more of a requirement for perceived success than actually winning hardware.
