The 2010 Playoffs have finally arrived and we are under the cap to trade where salaries dont have to match for any high price player that did'nt make the playoffs or want to leave his team after the playoffs. Not to mention we have money for the FA market class.
Here's my list of the First Round Series:
Lakers & OKC will be a great series to watch.....veteran stars vs young upcoming stars. I know the Lakers could handle OKC in 5 games but I'm hoping for 7 games.
Nuggets vs Jazz will be an upset.....the Nuggets bumb into the wrong team for the first round.
I'm going with the Nuggets b/c no-strategy playoff coach Karl is injured. 8 Games.
Suns vs Blazers I always looked at Channing Frye as a young Camby. Suns in 5 Games.
Mavs vs Spurs will be two 2nd round playoff teams battling all 8 games for the win.
The Spurs getting knocked off in the first-round..... is hard to believe.
The Mavs getting knocked off in the first round after adding super weapons this season....is hard to believe.
Cavs vs Bulls will probably be the only SWEEP in this playoffs.....I still dont understand how the Bulls can let SG-Ben Gordon, SG-Salmon, and even inconsistent SG-Hughes, go to the next team. Cavs in 4 Games.
Celtics vs Heat will be a the "Hottest" playoff game to watch.
Boston slick ..ss planned this series to make it three in a row seasons of having the highest top ratings in the first round. Will D.Wade and his short bench suprise Boston's long-depth-bench in this series? I doubt it, but the excitement and best highlights will be in this series.
Celtics in 7 Games.
Hawks vs Bucks WTF! Jamal Crawful in the playoffs? with no Bogut and only Kurt Thomas holding things down this will be an easy walk in the park for the Hawks. The Bucks owe big-thanks to a creative rookie Brandon Jennings season. Hawks in 5 Games.
Magic vs Bobcats will center on coach Charlie Brown this guy still wants all the publicity.
His career legend still hold fame as being the coach that will get any team into the playoffs in his 2nd season.
But will coach Charlie Brown finally use his deep depth bench this season in this playoff series vs coach SVG long rotation bench? if he do the Magic got a helluva challenge on their hands in this series.
Will Larry Hughes just play defense (on Nelson & Carter) and let Jackson & Gerald do all the scoring? Magic in 8 games.
Do the Knicks have a chance at the 2010 FA that lose in the first round???
Walsh better get on it the day after the series is over
P.S. When the Knicks first came up with the idea of a 2010 FA Plan.....
my thoughts were if any Super-Star leave the team that drafted them in 2010 FA it would be on a "sign and trade" deal. Why?
A Super-Star player do not need the bad publicity that will come from his former team if the organization got nada at the FA departure.
Agents and Endorsement companies (Nike) would not promote such a departure.
Which makes Donnie Walsh 2010 Plan a Joke (my bad Walsh has David Lee Agent on the same-page, since he did'nt trade him for the 2008 5th pick LOL).
