I'm excited to see how Durant performs in his first playoffs. He's accomplished more at his age than anyone I can remember as a lead guy. I do remember the last time he was in this situation, in the NCAA for UT, he did not step up his game. And the classy response to Phil's bush league ref tactics showed a lot of maturity and smarts.
Spurs = wild card

DeJuan Blair is going to rip Dirk's arms off.
BTW, the West bracket is lopsided. The Spurs, Mavs, and Suns are the hottest teams in the league. LA won't have the face any of them until the WCF.

Lebron accomplished way more at 21. He almost took the Cavs to the Eastern Conference Finals.

east- Bucks and Hawks

west- Suns trail blazers

Even with Roy's injury?

uhmmm... ya your right now so much i forgot about that. The blazers have had too many injuries this year, maybe they overcome it.

I like the mavs-spurs one then, especially since i live in dallas now. That texas rival is pretty intense.

The Thunder upsetting the Lakers is impossible. The only real challenge the Lakers have in the West is Dallas, but Dirk will choke when it counts the most.

All these teams like the Bobcats, Bucks, Thunder are being overrated by analysts looking for a trendy underdog. This isn't the NCAA tournament. The most talented teams win in the NBA playoffs.

It's going to be a Lebron vs Kobe Finals.

How bad was Bogut's injury? Im really glad he is finally living up to his potential....but if he is back, this series against the Hawks is gonna be very interesting.

Lebron does steroids.

He's done. It was a disgusting injury.

Were you saying the same thing when your Warriors did the unthinkable in 2007?

All athletes should do steroids. Baseball was way more entertaining when people were hitting lots of home runs.

I wish somebody would give Anthony Randolph steroids.

No, because the Mavericks were a bunch of pussies. And it was obvious that they were no match for the Warriors athletically or physically. Some upsets are obvious and that was one everyone could see coming.

And did I mention that Dirk is a p***y?

I dont know crzy, i do think the cavs are the best team in the NBA, better than the lakers right now, but Lebron in the playoffs is no sure-thing. I could see the Magic doing the same thing they did last year, and the Hawks always give the Cavs a hard time.
