Not your typical 8-seed

David Simon on nba.com had some nice things to say about the Dubs.  Full story here: http://my.nba.com/forum.jspa?forumID=400012156

It's great to see the team and BD getting respect from someone outside of the local media.  Dig it!

ONE DUB!

Maybe we shouldn't be incredibly shocked by the Game 1 outcome. I mean, is it just possible that this Golden State team isn't your typical 8-seed? They have now won 17 of their last 22 games and I would suggest that they would be the favorite in a 7-game series against five of the 15 other playoff teams (Jazz, Lakers, Magic, Wizards, Nets) and probably a pick 'em against the Nuggets or Raptors.

So we're basically saying that they are as good or better than about half the teams in the playoffs. Maybe that makes them the equivalent of a 4 or 5-seed. Should we really be that shocked by a 4-seed playing a 1-seed tough?

The whole 8 vs. 1 scenario is clouding the issue. This is a fair fight.

This might be stating the obvious, but Baron Davis is really good. I guess we're just not used to seeing him healthy and at his best, but anyone who was watching their first NBA game on Sunday night would definitely be shocked to hear that Baron has only made the All-NBA Third Team once in his 8-year career (2003-04).
