Who will win NBA playoffs?

#1 Postby dontxhide » Fri Apr 18, 2008 1:30 pm

Supposedly the odds have it that it will be Boston vs Utah in the finals. Thats just the odds though.

Who are your fav's?

As Roberts MVP post probably told you, Boston all the way!

I think Utah is a long shot to make the finals. They have trouble winning on the road, which is necessary to win tough playoff series, especially in the western conference. But, with the way the west is, you can't count out any of the top 7 teams. Any one of them could make it, but if I had to pick, I'd pick the Suns.

I like the Pistons in the east. They're tough, experienced, hungry and the underdogs (the role they do best in). When the Pistons are the favorites, they flop. When no one thinks they can pull it off, they're unbeatable. I think the Celtics will make the conference finals, and lose in 7 to the Pistons.

So I'm predicting a Pistons/Suns final.

If the Pistons vs Celtics make it go game 7 that would be an INSANE series.

I would enjoy Utah going far, just because I live here. I am not a fan though.

I would want the suns in the finals. But someone mentioned that a Boston vs Lakers would be the classic match up of the century!

Rematch of the 80's!!!!!

Lakers vs. Celtics

How cool would that be?

I hate the Lakers and like the Celtics quite a bit, but I think it would be awesome two decades later after the Magic vs. Bird era to have Kobe vs. Garnett :)

That being said, I'd love to see Suns vs. Cavs or Suns vs. Magic :)

Celtics and Lakers would be amazing like you said!

I still have VHS's of some of the highlights of those games. Magic and Bird match-up was classic. The Magic Johnson hook shot beyond the three point line is something that lives in my mind all the time.

There is NOTHING like watching Classic NBA, especially 80's and early 90's for me.

Love it!

I loved Bird, Magic, Jordan, and others back then.

Those were the days.............

Thats why I really like watching the Celtics now. It reminds me of the days when winning mattered, and not individual stats. They work as a team, and have guys that can take over games if need be, bust most of the time they dont.

Watching Lebron is like watching all those old school players reborn.

Jordan was the man. I still have like 20 of his basketball collectors cards somewhere in my storage lol!

After watching a couple of his championship's win I think I teared up from it.

I gotta go...but let's talk more b-ball soon! Let's talk about Magic's 3-pointer at the last second over Isiah in the 1992 all-star game, about Reggie Miller's 9 points in 13 seconds or whatever it was, let's talk old school NBA soon!

Back when the Hawks, Rockets and even Warriors were teams you didn't want to mess with!

We should make a whole nother topic. Remember Dominque Wilkins?

In 95 Miller scored 8 points in 8.9 seconds against the knicks. Amazing!

Oh man. Ok I know you have to go. But I had Okheem Olojuwan basketball shoes, they were awesome!

Im getting all excited now. Lets talk more soon.

I'd love to see Lebron take one...but I'm thinking it'll be another year or two. I hate to say it but I'm thinking the Lakers may take it.

I "worry" about the Lakers getting knocked out in the first round! They are up against AI and Mello.

Nuggets are tough!

These playoffs will be AWESOME! Can't wait!!!!

Suns. If they can pull it together they have a very superior team. If they can use shaq correctly nash and stodamire can move that ball. They just lost to the spurs in double overtime! I was on the river and just got out of the boats when I heard it on the radio. If they can't pull it together as a team though they are soooo sunk. That team is like a feather sometimes.
Peace.

I hope the hometown team will win- go Nuggets!

But, if I were to bet:

1) Spurs
2)Boston
3)Lakers
4) Suns
5) New Orleans



The West is just so stacked.

No offense, but I really don't want to see the boring Spurs do it again. I'd also love to see a Lakers vs. Celtics, or Suns vs. Cavs, Lakers vs. Cavss or something like that. Kobe vs. Lebron could be like the Magic vs. Bird days of old.

I feel the same about the Spurs too. I don't hate them...I respect most of the players quite a bit...they just don't get me excited.
