Why even bother posting this in this thread? This is for discussion about the NBA playoffs. It should go without saying that you should have at least somewhat of an interest in them before you post here. there are other threads where you could just generically discuss your feelings towards the NBA, but this isn't one of them.
Back on topic, I was glad to see the Dubs pull one out in Denver last night. That's a tough place to steal a W, and Stephen Curry is quickly becoming one of my favorite non-Thunder players. He's a delight for basketball purists and casual fans alike. Just makes plays and has delightful skill at the point. If they can pick up a really solid Center and a good 2-guard (Not buying Klay Thompson), then I think they could be a legit contender.
Heat are gonna roll. Bulls/Nets shouldn't be an interesting series, but because PJ Carlesimo sucks, it will be. Celtics are done. Knicks look really good. I Hate JR Smith, I think he's funny-looking, but damn can he play. Lakers are done. Had Kobe been healthy, I think they might have made a bit of a run, but without him they're dead in the water. I'll be watching the thunder tonight, natch. Have a feeling they're gonna sweep the Rockets. Clippers might sweep the Griz, which is unexpected for me. Can't count the grizzlies out, but Paul and griffin look to be dialed in right now. Hawks/Pacers should be a sweep for the Pacers.
