    I'll take the Sonics as soon as they come back to me.........

    I'm not bitter and I swear it doesn't hurt my heart every time I see Durrant bury a clutch shot........

    Ha. You guys got screwed. But the blazers are close, for now. Charlotte, sacramento, or new orleans could move your way.

    Portland has been a mess for 3 years, no continuity in the front office. But awful lock with both oden and roy.

    Oh man I think you've got the dark horse for sure. They are playing great ball right now and I was wondering when they were going to be scooped up!

    Memphis, Atlanta, Orlando and New York are solid as well. If need be,I'll double up and take Denver as well. My Nugs are suspect, but could win a series

    They played a great series last year against the Bulls (my team, Chicago transplant) and have come a LONG way this year, the most underrated team in the NBA.

    Hard to win in the playoffs without a true superstar though, these days.

    This is true, I don't fancy them to go too far, but you never know, look at Memphis last year
     
  16. MarkIntihar

    MarkIntihar Initiate (0) Mar 17, 2010 Michigan

    Very true, but Zach Randolph played out of his damn fool mind in the playoffs last year. Would probably take a similar effort from, say, Paul George or Danny Granger.

    kevanb Poo-Bah (1,865) Apr 4, 2011 Illinois

    They should have home court in the first round, and Granger has the potential to have a big series against a lower seeded team

    I don't follow basketball at all other than what ESPN force feeds me, but I sat out the Stanley Cup BIF so I'm feeling left out. I'll take Orlando.

    Orlando has now been claimed by silverX. KevanB has larry legends's pacers.

    Sorry for not checking in for a few days.
    Hopefully someone takes memphis, a team to be reckoned with.

    At the very least, a scary out.

    beckard13 Initiate (0) Aug 17, 2011 North Carolina

    Yeah, would love a 1st round match up with the Clippers. Think that would be a great series

    Kevanb has the hottest team in the league

    I can't decide if I'd rather see the Bulls play Indy or Boston in the second round...

    Sounds good, looking forward to it!

    If the NBA playoffs are anywhere near as entertaining as the NHL playoffs have been so far, we are all in for a treat. This season might be more interesting than most due to the lockout and the parity of the teams. Looking forward to it!

    And where are the Knicks and Sixers fans?!!

    Unless there are nightly bench clearing, fan involved brawls its impossible. I am biased though. And since Howard put a dress on and killed my chances, someone will be getting a "screamer".

    If this last week of games has been any indication, going to be a great playoffs! This OKC/LAL game is fantastic!

    BOl with the grizz, my sleeper team. If zbo picks up his game they should win a series or two.

    I believe we are 11 definite teams now, with the 12th pending on making the playoffs (pho)

    Good question. If needed (and ok with others here) I would be open to taking the Nuggets as long as they don't open up the playoffs against the Clips. Hopefully another Nuggets fan will come along. Where are the Knicks, Hawks, 76ers, and Rockets fans? Step it up!
