    Brett, Seenbad, SactoFan, Panama Dog, Hooligan, and anybody else I forgot,

    It's about 10 minutes before the NBA Playoffs begin and here are my predictions:

    Round #1

    San Antonio over Minnesota
    Lakers over Portland
    Sacramento over Phoenix
    Dallas over Utah

    Philadelphia over Indiana
    Milwaukee over Orlando
    Miami over Charlotte
    New York over Toronto

    Round #2

    San Antonio over Dallas
    Lakers over Sacramento

    Philadelphia over New York
    Miami over Milwaukee

    Conference Finals

    Lakers over San Antonio (This is the real NBA Finals)

    Philadelphia over Miami

    NBA Finals

    Lakers over Philadelphia (Mutombo will use his size to somewhat slow Shaq, but Kobe will outduel Iverson as the real "Philly Kid" wins the MVP of the NBA Finals and the Lakers go back-to-back).

    So, what do you guys think? Get your predictions in ASAP.

    Round #1

    San Antonio over Minnesota
    Portland over Lakes (I have to say that)
    Sacramento over Phoenix
    Utah over Dallas

    Philadelphia over Indiana
    Milwaukee over Orlando
    Miami over Charlotte
    Toronto over New York

    Round #2

    San Antonio over Utah (In 5)
    Blazers over Sacramento (In seven)

    Philadelphia over Toronto (in 6)
    Miami over Milwaukee (in 7)

    Conference Finals

    Blazers over San Antonio (I agree, this *whoever* it will be, is the real NBA Finals)

    Philadelphia over Miami(in 6)

    NBA Finals

    Blazers over Philly (in 7)

    Blazers will have too many places to go to score. Matumbo will give many of the guys problems (including and especially Stoudamire) but Sabonis will still get it done under the hoop due to his gerth. We have proven that Iverson can be shut down, I dont expect him to ever score more than 28 points and he's going to have to work for those. Steve Smith will be our hero, Pippen will be clutch, and Wallace will be mediocre throughout. The boards will be interesting but I think we can come out on top even though we have SUCKED coming down the stretch this season.

    I'll tell ya, I'm havin a hard time leaving the other thread behind. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    Could a Hada

    I agree w. all your 1st round picks except these.

    1. Blazers vs. Lakers (too close to call)

    Blazers are the superior team talent wise & veteran wise. Coaching-wise Phil (Zen Master) and Tex (Triangle master)have the edge over Dunleavy. Chemistry-wise, neither team has the edge. Right now, the Blazers have had a slump & the Lakers have been hot, but the playoffs wipe the slate clean. Nobody knows this better than the veteran filled Blazers.

    2. I think Utah will take care of Dallas and Toronto will take care of NY. Utah has been to the playoffs too many times to be taken out in the 1st round. Malone & Stockton have been playing some of their best ball this year. Plus, they've gelled well w. the new members. Add the veteran edge and a winning (although far from the classiest coach) and you have a victory)

    3. As for NY, they're a team doomed to be just good for a long time. I think the trade definately hurt them. Although they finished well in the regular season, look for Vince, Childs, & Oakley to send Spree & Camby home. Toronto has a good veteran cast w. a superstar at the helm.

    Broken record as I am, here it goes.

    Finals: Spurs vs. Philly. (Spurs over Philly)

    Sorry to burst your bubbles but the Bucks are going to win it all. They will spank Orlando, edge by Miami, edge by Philadelphia, and prevent LA from twopeating. Thanks for your time and support.

    Boy that was a hell of a game this morning between Philly and Indiana. Reggie Miller seems to always hit the clutch shot when it counts.

    Instead of predicting the playoffs by round, I'll just say my overall prediction is that the Spurs will beat Milwaukee in the Finals.

    Yes because of George Karl. He has always produced a winning record and he's a bitch in the playoffs. He has more talent now than what he had in Seattle. If the Bucks had a monster in the middle there would not be any question at all. Ray Allen, Sam Cassell, Glenn Robinson, Tim Thomas, and a few more provide a good recipe.Keep in mind they were a couple of points of knocking Indiana out last year.

    The Bucks have been hot & George Karl is a great coach. Anything is possible. I'm sticking w. the 76ers for right now in the East though.

    Sorry I didn't get to this one earlier, guys. I have been a little under the weather of late. Since I didn't get my predictions in before the games started I can't really make any on the first round now, but since 80% of the tams that win game one go on to win a 5 game series I'll take just about all the teams that one game one as a safe bet, the only exception Philly. I think they will bounce back to win that series. As I have said many times before though, San Antonio will win it all this year. They want to prove to everyone that their title 2 years ago was no fluke during the 50 game regular season.

    As much as I would like the Blazers to get past LA, I have to admit I would enjoy the LA San An series and call it the "real" title series.
