I'm layin $500 dollars to $1. that the Knicks dont win one game in this playoff...
It's all good knowing ex-Knick draft picks are on playoff teams....Ariza, Frye, and Balkman (hopefully next season Lee, Nate, and Collins will get playoff experience too) on the next team.
Celtics may have lost the first game vs Bulls but they will win the series in 6 or less.
Cavs will sweep the Pistons
Atlanta Hawks vs Miami Heat may go 7 games if Henry Bibby dont step up
Philly Iggy is proven to be a better leader than Turk so Howard is the only inside presence for the Magic....7 game series for Superman.
Spurs may have lost the first game vs Mavs but the Spurs has a habit of losing the first game in the first round....I guess its old habits. Spurs in 6 or less
Lakers will sweep Jazz
Denver deep bench with Billups leadership have N.O. in 5 games
Houston Rockets with Artest leadership has to much experience over the 50 win season Young-Blazzers....I see the Young-Blazzers deep bench winning 2 to 3 games in this series though.
Lakers will win the Championship
First round matchups
Cavaliers defeat Pistons in 6 games
Celtics defeat Bulls in 5 games
Magic defeat 76ers in 7 games
Hawks defeat Heat in 7 games
Lakers defeat Jazz in 5 games
Hornets defeat Nuggets in 7 games
Mavericks defeat Spurs in 6 games
Rockets defeat Trailblazers in 5 games
Heat were really disappointing yesterday...
Ariza absolutely beasted in game 1.

there were some great games, and some not so great games, but ill be looking to see how portland bounces back from being trounced in game 1. ill be the first to admit that i didnt expect the trailblazers to play to their age but thats what they did. i believe b-roy is one of those underrated stars. this guy is a season away from super stardom imo. talking about underrated stars, i think this is joe johnson's time to prove he deserves to be more widely known. its his team, i think they'll beat miami but im interested to see what happens if they play clevand.
Jeff Van Gundy predicted POrtland would get blown out. at home.

My humble prediction:
I think the 76ers beat the Magic in 5; Cavs beat Pistons in 5; Heat beat Hawks in 7; Celtics beat the Bulls in 5.
Cavs then bump off the Heat in 5; Sixers knock off the Celtics in 6.
Eastern Conference Finals
Cavs win the East from the Sixers in 5.
In the west, LA beats the Jazz in 4, Denver beats N.O. in 7, Rockets beat Blazers in 5, and Mavs knock off the Spurs in 6.
Lakers beat the Rockets in 5; Mavs knock off the Nuggets in 6.
Western Conference Finals:
Lakers beat Mavs to win the West in 5.
Finals: Los Angeles beats Cleveland in 5.
Cavs vs. Lakers/Rockets and the cavs win in 6 games.
I really want the Bulls to drop the Celts, watching them now, and I gotta say, I love it every time Marbury comes on the floor, because you know the Bulls are about to catch up lol.
Rondo just went down nastily, more injuries for the Celts? If so I'm sure the Bulls are gonna win this series.
chicago ended up losing but only by three. 118-115, hopefully chicago can win on their home floor because i have a tad bit more hope that they can pull an upset.
and @ OG, that sixers beating the magic in 5 is one bolddd prediction lol

The Bulls are getting better as a complimentary TEAM on both sides of the court in this series vs Boston (50% FG and 14 blockshots)....
Salmon IQ on defense was like that of Artest on Pierce in the two games.
And we all remember how poor Salmon performance was the past 3 seasons.
I wish we could've had $17M worth of trade-value players to get Salmon and Brad Miller to go with Duhorn, Nate, Chandler, Harrington, Lee, and Wilcox, on the trading deadline....that would've been a nice 8-man rotation to develope a playoff team with.
Ben Gordon 2nd playoff game has raised his FA stock higher than what it was at the end of the regular season.
The Bulls winning a home-game will increase alot of the Bulls players trade value....coulda been us...
Will Marbury have a 30 point game now that Rondo is shaken up???
