The Chicago Bulls wrapped up the 7th spot in the East with a 41-41 record. Need I remind you that the Warriors won 48 games last season and weren't invited to the spring dance and the Suns recorded 46 wins this past season and are headed to the NBA lottery?
The Atlanta Braves- I mean Detroit Pistons and their barbaric fans will not be missed.
I wouldn't be surprised if this series went the distance with the future King of NY and the Cavs prevailing. The Cavs have been nearly perfect at home this season (39-2!) and I don't see that stopping on Day 1 of the 2k9 NBA Playoffs. It's a bad sign when Pistons fans are posting things like this before this playoff series has even began.
The Mavs and Spurs have had some great battles in the playoffs this past decade. Little ol' Smell Antonio vs. Dallas city-wise is like Sacrapmento vs. the Bay Area. It's a tiny market team vs. a big market team. I'm really looking forward to this matchup.
Warriors fans have tortured Mavs fans in the recent past to no end, so let's root for them in this series. I'd much rather see Jason Kidd and Dirk advancing than the San Antonio Snores who could've even sell out their home arena for the Western Conference Playoffs in a good economy.
This is going to be a long, fun series. It's going the distance and it's my upset special. Mavs 4-3 when it's all said and done. Dallas takes care of business in San Antonio in game 1.
My god. This is absolutely pointless. Everyone likes Yao, T-Mac, and Ron-Ron (well okay I do and that's probably because of the Artest to the Dubs dreams of the past), but the Houston Rockets should be banned from the NBA Playoffs.
Seriously what's the point?
I'm sure it will be a fun series, but we know the Rockets are just going to get bounced eventually. It's anti-climactic. I'd much rather have the Warriors in last season and Suns in this season. Shoot, even this year's Wizards would have a better chance of making it out of the first round then the installment of the post-Hakeem Rockets do.
