The East:

1 Celtics
8 Hawks
Celtics will sweep the crap out of the Hawks.

4 Cavaliers
5 Wizards
If Arenas is back in a groove, the Wizards are easily talented enough to make this work.

3 Magic
6 Raptors
The Magic would have struggled with the 76ers, but the Raptors match up poorly with them.

2 Pistons
7 76ers
76ers may pick off a game here.

The West:

1 Lakers
8 Nuggets
The Nuggets definitely had a shot with the Hornets -- but the Lakers offense will shred them.

4 Jazz
5 Rockets
The Rockets can't make any mistakes at home -- if they do, this series is over.

3 Spurs
6 Suns
Nightmare matchup for the Spurs. The Suns are built to beat them, and now they will.

2 Hornets
7 Mavericks
Both teams are relishing this matchup. The Hornets know the Mavs are vulnerable, and the Mavs know the Hornets could melt in the bright lights.

I am predicting no fewer than five Game Sevens, and while I think the Celtics are taking this sucker, the Western team I like the most is going to surprise you....

Go SUNS

If the refs don't take over the game, if Bowen & Manu get called/teched for their cheap shots, if Barbosa can come off the bench and play strong the Suns will handle SA this year.

I'm looking forward to a Shaq vs. Kobe grudge match.

The Hornets just don't have the muscle to advance.

The Lakers have the muscle, and the only team that's really big enough to match them sizewise if Bynum returns are the Celtics in my opinion. I just think the Jazz are too powerful at home, and if they can pick off a win on the road against any of these teams they can pull it out.

The Jazz upset over the Lakers is the most unlikely thing I mapped out, I'll admit it.

The Hornets are the perfect first-round matchup for the Mavericks. They are a bunch of pussy jump shooters who can't defend the paint and don't have a single "uber-superstar" player who the refs will favor.

The Mavericks, meanwhile, are a tough team that plays defense and have a superstar. They also have mounds of playoff experience, the Hornets have very little.

Unless Dirk just totally chokes I see the Mavs taking it. I'm very pleased they beat the Hornets to avoid the Lakers in round 1.

1 Celtics
8 Hawks
Cs in 5 games. Hawks surpise game one.

4 Cavaliers
5 Wizards
Wizards got it in 6 games. Lebron will be the heroe twice, but will choke it up in the end.

3 Magic
6 Raptors
Magic will win in a sweep.

2 Pistons
7 76ers
Yeah, probably a sweep.
The West:

1 Lakers
8 Nuggets
Lakers win it in five, because they won't take game 4 seriously and the nuggs will.

4 Jazz
5 Rockets
Jazz will win it in 7.

3 Spurs
6 Suns
Suns win in a sweep. Yeah, I know.

2 Hornets
7 Mavericks
The Mavs take strong and win on the road, but the Hornets'll come together. Hornets in 7 games.


1 Celtics
5 Wizards

Wizards play 4 hard games and but fall to the celtics. Boston's on a 7 game winning streak.

3 Magic
2 Pistons

Piston's win in 5 games. Rasheed Wallace takes over.

1 Lakers
4 Jazz
Jazz are tired. Lakers win another in 5 games in a similar fashion.

6 Suns
2 Hornets
Suns pull the upset in and tough seven game series.


1 Celtics
2 Pistons
Detroit blazes boston in 5 games.

1 Lakers
6 Suns
The rested Lakers win in a sweep.

Lakers
Pistons
A fun series that will pump up non-nba fans for next year. Lakers win in 6.

I used to like the Suns in the west but the Shaq for Marion trade still baffles me. Shaq is easily the most washed up player in the league.

Also the winner of the Cavs/Wizards will win the East.

04-17-2008, 07:23 PM
I agree with most of your comments Direckshun, but you're wrong about the Raptors/Magic. As much as I despise Toronto, they actually matchup well with Orlando. Bosh/Ford give the Magic fits. The Raptors have been playing like shit lately so they'll lose anyways.

And as far as LA/Denver goes, yeah Melo and Ai will combine for 50+ a game against the Lakers, but how much is Kobe going to drop on Anthony Carter/JR Smith? Neither team plays good perimeter defense, and defensively speaking, the Lakers do not have what it takes to make this series a sweep, but they will win in 5 or 6.

Direckshun
04-19-2008, 10:54 AM
Watching Cavs v. Wiz right now. Not really that exciting, but Arenas just came in.

They just showed a quote of his from a day ago -- "I am an assassin, I haven't played in a while but the shot's still there."

Love that confidence coming off the bench. Right now the Cavs lead in the 1st of Game 1, 17-12.

Are you insane DC? I can see the Nugs winning 1 maybe 2 games in the series. I can also see them getting swept.
Unless they miraculously wake up with a defense tomorrow other than Camby that is. Then all bets are off.
The Nuggets have the firepower to beat anyone. But without defense it's like the Chiefs of 02 to 05 all over again. :shake:

LeBron's come alive. He's hit 7 of his last 8, and has started the Cavs off in the 2nd half with a half-court alley oop and a stone-cold swish from the 3 point line.

53-50, Cavs.

This game, plus the 3-1 regular season record (2-0 with Shaq, iirc), pretty much proves that in my mind. It took awful officiating, fouling out and miracle shots for the Spurs to win in DOUBLE OT on the LAST shot.

Game two will be close. SA may even pull it out of their ass again. But Phoenix will roll in games three and four and never look back.

It has nothing to do with that. The Mavs shot 20 percent in the second half. That's the only reason they lost.

Four "eh" games today.

Raptors take on the Magic -- not that great of a matchup, but I thought Cavs/Wiz were a bad matchup and they played ****ing amazing ball yesterday.

The Nugs take on the Lakers. Predict something like 135-120. Loads of highlights there.

Pistons vs. the 6ers may be the only matchup worth watching today. Pistons are the only shot in the East to beat the Celts, and the 76ers are young and upstart.

Wrapping up the day is Celtics vs. Hawks, in what's sure to be a low-scoring snoozer where Atlanta doesn't have a chance.

That was one stupid trade for Jason Kidd eh? Sometimes I have a hard time understanding all of the HORRIBLE trades that have gone on the last couple of years. It makes you think literally anybody can be a NBA GM. I mean, the Cavs honestly traded Drew Gooden away and picked up Ben Wallace. Then they found out he sucks, and barely plays him now. Then instead of keeping Chandler, the Bulls go and signs a role player in Ben Wallace for a max contract. Retarded.

Philly's keeping up with the big boys in Detroit. 66-61 Pistons in the third, but the 76ers have done a lot to narrow it down. They're young, upstart, and able. But Rasheed's playing well today, and when Rasheed's on, they Pistons are a Top 3 Team in the NBA.

Also -- I've never seen Teyshawn Prince and Barack Obama in the same room, ever. I'll leave you to contemplate that.

Direckshun
04-20-2008, 06:27 PM
Three minutes left, Sixers up by four. Wow...

To be fair, it's because the Pistons are missing everything. Not jump shots, but layups and free throws. A bunch of good looks, and they're not making anything near the basket. Billups even missed two free throws in a row, which never happens.

So what we have here is a better team giving the game away, but the Sixers are hungry enough to take it.

The Pistons are not underachievers, they're just mentally weak. They've been punked by Wade, LeBron, and now the 6ers in consecutive years.

Their offense is stagnant and not good enough to win a championship anymore. They don't have anyone who can get in the lane or draw double teams so they just take jumpshots.

Billups has been playing like **** in the playoffs when it really counts for the last couple years, but no one calls him on it. Hell they still call him "big shot." He's not an elite pg, put a big guard on him and he disappears.

Atlanta showing Boston how to play playoff basketball. Defense, energy, and not settling for jump shots. Great to see from such a young group.

Man, the Cavs pulled this same crap in Game 5. Like the prevent defense in football doing nothing but preventing the win.

This holding the ball on offense with 4 minutes left in the game will lose the game for the Hawks if they continue to do it.
