Fill out your brackets for the NBA's Sweet Sixteen! [NBA.com]
The 2010 NBA Playoffs are here! Day 1 features so many (as Monta Ellis would say) "soop-a-stahs" that I didn't even have room to list Deron Williams, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo, Joe Johnson, Zaza Pachulia (just checking if you're reading), and Josh Smith.

#8 Chicago Bulls @ #1 Cleveland LeBrons Cavaliers

Seriously can we hurry up and get this series over?
Seriously can we hurry up and knock out the Cavs from the playoffs so we can free LeBron James from the armpit of America?
Prediction: Cavs by 11
#6 Milwaukee Bucks @ #3 Atlanta Hawks
2:30pm PST | ESPN
The Bucks won 46 games this season. In other words they wouldn't have even sniffed the playoffs in the Western Conference.
He's still got a ways to go, but call me a Brandon Jennings fan:
So much flava! He'll get there.
Prediction: Hawks by 5
#5 Miami Heat @ #4 Boston Celtics
5:00pm PST | ESPN
It's a battle of mediocre vs old. Oooh, I can't wait!
The KG intimidation factor cannot be underestimated. [via cache.boston.com]
Prediction: Celtics by 7
#5 Utah Jazz vs #4 Denver Nuggets
7:30pm EST | ESPN
To quote San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary (check Niners Nation- Ted Ginn?!) this series is going to be "physical... with an F".
