    Very respectable opinions! My west predictions are almost the same

    Philly in 4
    Brooklyn in 5
    Miami in 6
    Knicks in 6

    Jazz in 5
    Lakers in 7
    Nuggets in 7
    Mavs in 6

    What amazes me is the way PG and Kawhi are regarded as elite defenders, especially Kawhi--but Luka has been torching them going back to the bubble last year. Hes gonna put those 2 in a body bag once and for all this year and possibly break that team up

    In the East i had such a hard time picking between the Bucks and Heat

    Yeah, Doncic has really been on fire this season, it's a shame we didn't get him last year!

    I do believe the Wizards will steal one from the Sixers and avoid sweep. Nets will sweep Boston and the Bucks will eventually prevail in 6. Now for the series we're most interested in, realistically i would go with Hawks in 6 but i hope we'll manage to pull back somehow and make it to the second round.
    In the West i got Jazz in 5, Suns in 6, Portland in 7 and Clippers in 6.

    Brooklyn is on their way to sweeping the Boston Celtics in the 2nd game of the series, at the end of the 3rd quarter Brooklyn 109 - Boston 82 WOW !!!

    I wish i could take back picking the Heat to win against the Bucks. But i gotta give Giannis and Milwaukee their credit. They are showing more mental toughness at least through the first 2 games

    Some of you may remember how much i hated the Celtics. Im actually rooting for them, i see the Nets as the number one enemy. I wanna see Boston rough up the Nets the last 2 games. Tire them out and beat on them so that the next team has a better chance

    Lakers and Suns going on now. This is gonna be a great game, im pulling for the Suns

    My prediction on the LA teams (Lakers & Clippers) may go south in a different direction ....
    Lakers struggled in crunch-time to pull off tonite win over the Phoenix Suns to TIE series at 1-1
    How come tonite performance says the Suns are going to steal a win in L.A?
    The Clippers loss tonite to the Doncic-Mavs gave the Mavs a 2-0 series lead heading home to Dallas to play the next two games in Dallas .... Will the Dallas Mavs crowd pump-up the Mavs players for a sweep ???

    He’s a UFA this off-season, I doubt the Knicks make a play for him but stranger things have happened. Knicks I think will make PG a priority and will try to retain DRose at a reasonable contract. They may make a play for Lonzo, which I'd be opposed to if we're talking about more than Terry Rozier money.

    I think with how well Doncic performs in the playoffs, the top 5 best players in the league has become perhaps the most crowded its ever been but i dont believe theres one elite player on the level of prime Lebron, Duncan, Kobe, MJ, Bird, Magic etc

    Good to see you still here. I hope all is well

    I agree with you! I always liked Timmy. It seems like his game regressed everytime he played with us

    The quiet Milwaukee Bucks are making a statement in the third game of the series by having a 86-60 lead at the end of the 3rd quarter ... The Miami Heat are letting me down, I gave them 2 wins in the series, but the Giannis-Bucks (Holiday & Tucker team-ball) performance are making this series look like a Bucks SWEEP !!!

    I'm Waiting to watch the Lebron-Lakers vs CP3-Suns game, and the Jokic-Nuggets vs Lillards-Blazers game late tonight, both series are Tied at 1-1

    I'm looking forward to that also. I haven't watched much of the first two. I'll watch Nets/Celtics after this one first, unless it's a blowout. I want to see the Clippers turn it around because I like Kawhi.

    Sure, it's not like we're getting another long-lasting legend like Lebron (that's a lot of L's) or Tony Parker this year, but there are still players that elevate themselves above the others!

    It's 3 seasons and I still don't know who got the better player in the 2018 draft trade between the Hawks and the Mavs (Trae vs Doncic) ???
    Both Players are the leaders of their teams in several categorie stats.
    Both Players are the shot callers on their team.
    Both teams had above 40 wins in the Covid-19, 72 game season.
    Both teams lead the postseason games 2-1 as the underdog team.
