Bulls @ Celtics: 9:30am on ESPN
The biggest news around the NBA is the good Doc's prognosis on KG. It's not looking so hot, but then again Rivers is only nicknamed Doc; he's not an actual M.D.
At this point I feel obliged to do this: KG to the Warriors!!
(Did you expect anything less?)
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?
Didn't think so.
I think not. I'm predicting a sweep and Celts take Game 1 easy.
Pistons @ Cavaliers: 12pm on ESPN
The Pistons championship contention window:
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.
