    I'm going with a Lakers upset, other than that, I'm waiting for OKC/MIA sometime in August

    Clippers v. Grizzlies should be a good first round matchup.

    That's really all there is...
    Hou/OKC is intriguing because of Harden, and the Lakers as underdogs is fun, but that's about it.

    Denver/Golden State should be a fun series to watch. The Chicago Bulls are going to be a tough out.

    Without Noah they're not winning anything. He's apparently not playing Game 1, and D.Williams is actually back to being great.
    I don't see the Bulls winning, 4-2 Nets

    With Noah they have a shot. Without him? Not much. No one else can defend Lopez. With Rose? They can make it to the East finals. I'm very disappointed he's all but declared himself done for the season.

    It's a smart descision. Go ask Gilbert Arenas about coming back too soon. Rose has 12-15 more years in the league. If he comes back too soon he'll be another Penny Hardaway or Grant Hill.

    Yeah I know. That's logical and rational and blah blah blah. :)
    I just want him back! This season is toast anyway!

    Brook Lopez is going to score 200 points this series if the Bulls don't make a defensive adjustment.

    So, the Bulls kind of got their teeth smashed in tonight.

    The Broooooooklyn chant makes me hate them though

    20,000 chanting hipster shitheads. Surprised the Nets don't wear fedoras during warm-ups.

    Joe D-row-sah is more likeable.

    I know it's the cliche complaint, but the way they drag out the 1st Round really is insane.
    If they're good series, I don't mind as much, but if some of these shitty series go 6 games, it's 2 god damn weeks.

    The Knicks/Celtics started today, 4/20 and if it goes 7 games will end on 5/5
    They don't play game 2 until Tuesday...

    Since when is Keyon Dooling playing in the NBA again? I thought he was in a mental hospital

    It was the first playoff game ever in the Barclays Center. It sounds like the Nets were feeding off their hipster crowd. Noah playing on a bum foot didn't help matters either.

    This Lakers/Spurs game is a shit show. Terrible watching, a ton of misses, no athletes, boring.

    I take back my Lakers upset, they're getting swept

    Too late. You are stuck with the Lakers. The Spurs are gonna bore their way through the west.
