T-Wolves over Carmelo is over ratted er Nuggets

Rockets over Lakers (Could happen IF Karl doesn't play, I don't think it will happen but it will piss enough of you off so why not.)

Kings over Mavericks - first team to get a defensive stop wins.

SA over Memphis

Pacers over Boston

Maimi over NO

Detriot over Bucks

NJ over NY

I think this is the most wide open the NBA playoffs have been in years. I could see any of four teams winning the west, and 3 or 4 teams winning the East.

I picked the Nuggets more because if they win game one, the pressure would be HUGE on the T-Wolves and they might crack. Furthermore, Besides KG I think the teams are pretty even at every position. Spreewell is old and can't break down defenses like he used to, as is Sam Cassell.

Miller v. Cassel - Even
Spree v. Voshard Leonard/White/Barry - Spree
'Melo v. Wally - 'Melo
KG v. NeNE - Umm... Even???
Kandi v. Camby - Two underachievers, edge to Camby b/c he's been on a team that went to the Championship.

Bench - T-Wolves in a big way.

Coaching - I'll take Flip over the nuggets guy, also the nuggets are going to be happy just making the playoffs.

T-Wolves in 6.

The only place I disagree is Miller v. Cassel. I'll take Andre Miller. KG needs to carry Minnesota through the playoffs. He is the only guy that will be able to draw doubles and scare the other teams.

Cassel was an all-star this year, posted a few triple-doubles, if I had to choose I'd go with Cassel, plus Sam I Am has the Playoff experience. Although I think Miller should have made the all-star team over Ray Allen, even though Bibby should have made it over both. Just something to think about.

Im kind of surprised that the Kings pulled out the series win that soon. Oh well... If Webber plays, the Wolves will win. :D

despite how bad Webber has been. And despite the fact that Adalmen keeps him in there, Kings in 6. Here's a postion break down:

Bibby v. Cassel - Bibby

Christie v. Hassel/Hoiberg (which one starts, doesn't matter any way.) - Christie

Peja v. Spreewell - Spree

Webber v. KG - umm. Even?

Valde v. (the other) E. Johnson - Vlade

Bench:

Peeler v. Hoiberg/Martin/Hassel - Peeler

Miller/Songila v. Madsen/Trent/Kandi Man - Kings combo, in a big, BIG way.

Coaching: Aldalmen's bad, but at ;least he's been past the second round (to 2 finals actually, how the hell did that happen?), Flip's a good coach, but he's never been here before, so who knows - Even.

All this adds up to Kings in 6, just my opinion.

I cannot believe how long the breaks are in the NBA playoffs. The Lakers Spurs series has game one today (sunday), game two wednesday, and game 3 sunday. I think that is far too much time.

I think the Spurs - Lakers series should be pretty good.

I'll watch that Kings - Wolves series but I think the Kings will win it fairly easily. The wolves were a jump shot from being in a dog fight against the Nuggets and didn't handle that well. Especially Spree. Bibby is an killer in that series.

and the Lakers are in a whole lot of trouble.

Lakers are in deep trouble. Payton looks really old. Man it is frustrating that the Lakers won three titles with less talent but better team work then they have now. Kobe used to be able to break down anyone when they needed a bucket.

over dribbles and forces shots. I think the Rockets would be still playing if Kobe had hit any part of the rim on his game 1 airball. It just proves that you have to be a team to win, not a bunch of individuals. Kind of like the Wildcats proved this year.
