All I know is that the Knicks have no hope of winning and will be pummeled.

Consider this is their first playoff appearance in about a decade i think they should be happy just getting there also i think they got a puncher's chance against Boston with them old legs they got and how they limped into the playoffs only going 10-10 in their last 20 games,the Knicks do have the best player on the court in Carmelo Anthony after all so anything can happen.

Well, I'm rooting for the Denver Nuggets (Someone has to) and it looks like getting a good deal for Carmelo Anthony, by sending him to New York has worked in our favour. Points come from all over and a reasonably leaky defence will make these games closer than I like.

I'm looking forward to the playoffs with renewed gusto. Let's get it on!

The Spurs have no chance, the Thunder will beat them in the second round. Without Manu the Spurs bench won't keep up.

Even though the Bulls have the best record in the regular season, they are still being overlooked by Miami {who are nothing to sneeze at}, and Boston {with no Perkins}. Granted, the playoffs are a whole different game, and we all know about the Cavaliers choking in the playoffs so many times, but I still believe that the Bulls and the Lakers are going to meet in the Finals, and Chicago will have it's 7th NBA title when it's all said and done.

I'd also lol at these experts saying that Dallas is going to lose to Portland in the first round, when Portland hasn't been past the 1st round in over a decade. Blazers do have some depth on their team and some size to them, but 1 or 2 good players and a bunch of B-players aren't going to beat a more talented, hungrier team in Dallas.

If you want to look at an upset potential, look at the San Antonio Spurs {who are vastly overrated}, against Memphis. With that said, Memphis doesn't have enough to beat the Spurs in a 7 game series, but I wouldn't be surprised if it does go the full 7 games.

As for the best matchup in the first round, it's by far OKC vs. Denver. Both teams can score over 100+ every game, partly due because they don't play defense that well. I can't see the Nuggets winning this series at all, because when you lose someone like Carmelo, you just can't go far in the playoffs.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

Well Day 1 was pretty nuts with the close one between Chicago & Indiana though D-Rose showed off his MVPness even more in that close win but what a real shame was is Dwight Howard getting his career high 46 points (31 in the 1st half) and yet the Magic lose 93-103 at home to the Hawks,the other two games and finishes were typical with the Sixers & Blazers playing their A game and yet it still isn't enough against the clearly better teams in the Heat & Mavs.

Watching sports has entertainment value.

What's wrong with indulging in that?

Yea that debate has always been up in the air but for a Flash Movie/Game site it probably wouldn't serve much purpose thought it would be better than a politics forum lol but i'm satisfied that you can just make threads about certain playoffs or whatever.

Go Spurs, Lakers, and Hornets!

I think I might get tickets to the east conference finals, depending on where it is.

I'm sure no one predicted that the Hornets would beat the Lakers in Game 1, 109-100. With that said, however, I can't see the Hornets pushing this series beyond 5 games. The Lakers are too good of a team to lose to the Hornets in the 1st round and even if one of their backup players has chicken pox.

The Grizzlies on the other hand I could see them taking the Spurs to the limit, if not knock them out entirely. {but that's a very big if.} Without Manu, the Spurs can't really put some distance on anybody in games, and have to rely on the rest of the team, {which most of them are pretty old} to pick up the pace on the offensive front.

And as always, Go Bulls!

I don't really care who wins... I'm pretty sure Boston is going to make it to the Eastern Conference finals (at which point it'll actually become important that we have Shaq back). What I care about is who loses. I'll be really pumped if the Lakers get knocked out. Because really, they should be knocked out. They've represented the West for the past three years and even though it'd be sweet for the Celtics to own them in the Finals this year I'd rather play a team that earned their way there with hard-work instead of riding on their huge front-court and volume Kobe.

The Sixers fucking suck, they had a 20 point lead in the game against The Heat and The Heat still found a way to come back to win it. Heat were heavily favored for a reason, because The Sixers are choke artists who will not pull an epic upset off against The Heat.

Spurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs. I like me some spurs.

Pretty poor showing on Sunday, honestly. But Manu will almost certainly be back on Wednesday's game. I think the Grizz will be overcome in six games. Championship experience and elite scorers will overcome their novel (but novice!) antics.

2nd round may be the most difficult of the entire playoffs. OKC will be a bitch to dispatch, especially with the addition of Perkins to the roster. LA looks like utter trash right now; if they make it past round 2, I see them being an easier opponent in the Western Conference Finals than just about anyone else...

Ultimately, though, everything beyond round one is speculation, so I'll keep my mouth shut on predictions until these series have developed further.

Also, I do not care at all about the Eastern Conference.

Also, it may be true that the Thunder will beat the Spurs in round 2, however, the Spurs bench is one of the most productive in the league with people like George Hill and Gary Neal providing a lot of depth. There is also Matt Bonner, who is the best 3 point shooter in the league by percentage, although his defense is nothing to brag about.

New Orleans appears to be doing pretty good against LA. Hopefully they last or at least give them quite a scare otherwise there'll be alot of complaints about an LA-Boston finals series reappearing.

Boston has looked like trash since the loss of Kendrick Perkins...I doubt Boston makes it past ECF, and I do not see them beating either Chicago or Miami in a seven game series.

*Since being the first team in the league to clinch playoff berth.

We were owning for like 6 games in a row after the trade. Then we clinched and games didn't really matter any more.

I really don't understand why anyone would think the Perkins trade really mattered that much to the team. They were sad to lose him because he was a hard worker and whatnot, but we didn't need him, couldn't pay him, and he got a great deal out of it without hurting the team whatsoever (remember, he didn't really play this season and we looked utterly dominant during most of that stretch). I think they're over it, though. And I think it's good that the starters don't have the excuse of "our starting five has never lost in the playoffs" anymore. Because that just sets you up to lose if you don't have your starting five (aka: what happened Game 7 last year).

So now that the Celtics have swept the Knicks, the only other team that can be swept is Denver. If anyone was looking for the meaning of irony, I'd say both teams that 'Melo played for in 2011 getting swept in the first round of the playoffs would be a definition of that.

Of course, if Denver shows a bit of fight and actually won a game, that would also be good, but I'm not holding my breath.
