Ewing theory would have fit had the Rockets gone on to win the Championship(after the Rockets with Yao never got anywhere in the playoffs), but that clearly isn't happening.

And I'm watching the Playoffs, and I'll definitely watch the Finals, as long as it isn't San Antonio vs. Detroit, in which case I refuse to watch a minute of it.

Re: NBA Basketball

East seems predictable unless either Detroit or Boston flubs it.

West? Yah, I totally had the top 2 teams in the west as...not playoff teams. Shows what I know . West has potential to be epic or an epic letdown, with how good the conference was overall.

Re: NBA Basketball

The 8-1 East series is a joke. Mike Bibby knows it, he realized it right after Game 1. Realizing he had no chance, he decided tp take a shot at us. Well, I just repeat everything the sign said: Rondo's Better, Fair weather like your game, Game 3 in Atlanta- Seats still available. This is going to go down in four. Cleveland/Washington might pose a challenge next round, but we can handle them. The Pistons I'm scared of. Just a little.

Re: NBA Basketball

You might have to think about the Cavs, but not the Pistons. They're down 2-1 if the Sixers get another game at home, the Brash Boys will have to work mightily just to make round 2.

Wow- after that game last night, I think the Celtics may have a clear path to the finals. I still favor the Hornets in the West, even if Kobe is on a hot streak. Paul might be able to up his game even more, I dont know. Well, what I'm saying is that I dont want to have to play the Lakers in the Finals. I wasn't born when the Celts-Lakes had their big rivalry, so I wouldn't mind mssing that.

Re: NBA Basketball

The Pistons pulled even. The Suns kicked away the brooms. The Mavs are living dangerously--they MUST steal one on the Hornets' home floor or they are toast. The Cavs look like they're ready to dispose of the Wizards again, and I think the Magic are in the driver's seat in their series.

I was surprised that the Suns had gone down 0-3, but am pretty glad they got one. Those first two games were so close, a sweep would have looked worse than that series is.

I'm looking forward to a Lakers-Celtics series.

Re: NBA Basketball

One step at a time. Looks like Mike Bibby found motivation (at least on his home floor). On the plus side--since the home team has won every game in this series, things would seem to weigh in the Celts' favor. For some reason, the Magic look scary good right now. Is it possible they could challenge for the Eastern Conference crown?

Lakers' Kobe Bryant named NBA MVP

He did do pretty well this season.

You were bound to lose at least one in Utah, the Jazz play too well at home.

Re: NBA Basketball

Actually Jazz is a veryyy good team (I'm not a fan of tehm though) but they're probably one of *** most hard working teams. Sometimes...

Re: NBA Basketball

Since I'm from Southern California and am a family of Lakers fanatics, naturally I like the Lakers as well.

Speaking of the Lakers, yay!! They're going to the finals! It's been way too long.

Re: NBA Basketball

Oh my god. If the Celts win the East, Boston and LA might explode. That would just be great. It's what everyone's been looking forward to for months! I must ask my dad if I can borrow one of his old "Beat L.A." shirts from the Bird-Johnson era...

Let's hope the C's can pull through and win another on the road. I couldn't take another Game 7.

Re: NBA Basketball

Just have to celebrate for a sec... I got floor tickets by the benches to Mavs/Wizards (at Wizards) tonight for $60 each tonight! Yay for presales!

Too bad they're only coming here once this season!

Re: NBA Basketball

I love the Pistons/Nuggets trade. "Mr. Big Shot" is heading to Denver to teach them how to play defence and "The Answer" is heading to Detroit to teach them how to practice. Yep, I think Denver got the better end of that trade. Both guys are aging but at least Chauncy can bestow his knowledge of how to win a championship on a tallented team. AI just brings attitude and....luggage? Sure, he can shoot, but at what cost?

Re: NBA Basketball

AI gives game effort. He was the iron man and team carrier before Wade broke into the league. I think the trade is stupid, but I also think you're selling him short.
