Three playoff observations & a question

As Jackson made his way back from hyperextending his knee during the second quarter, perhaps he was playing a bit of possum?  His first drive in the third quarter, he blasted past the defender on the way to the hoop and generally played very strong during the second half against the Magic. While it was surprising that VC and Howard's foul trouble didn't hamper Orlando more than it did, it was even more surprising that Jax wasn't on the floor in the crucial last few minutes of the fourth quarter. Wonder what coach Brown knew that we didn't?

 The Spurs have been holding Duncan back all year, not playing him on back to backs and keeping his minutes under wraps to keep him fresh for the playoffs, yet he seems sluggish. Parker missed lot's of time with an injured hand but is now healthy - yet Coach Pop chose not to start Parker, instead bringing him in off the bench. Wonder what Pop is seeing that we don't?

Dallas made a big trade midseason that netted them Hayward and Butler to form a deep and formidable roster with Dirk, Kidd, and Marion. Yet in the playoffs the Mavs start Dampier at C rather than the obviously more athletic and effective Haywood. What would be the advantage gained there?

Q to fellow Dubsfans: Just curious, which playoff roster (either Eastern or Western) would you NOT trade our roster for? Assuming both rosters were healthy, is there a roster in the second season that you would rather not trade ours for straight up?
