    The NBA playoffs, they have arrived. T-Mac will go it alone against the Jazz tonight. Dirk hopes to take over against the Hornets. Duncan hits a three to rally the spurs, and Arenas is quieted by Lebron. Should be a good week of action. More to come. But the big game tonight is at 9:30 pm. Go Rockets!

    Man, this will by far be the best NBA playoffs we've seen in years.
    Hornets win. Lakers tomorrow. All I know, is CP amazes me with every pass, and every shot. He coasts through games and puts up better numbers than anyone on the court. I love this team. Up by 10 with 2m left, they never slow it down to hold the lead. They see an opportunity to score, and go for it.

    At least in the West. The East is Detroit vs Boston, the rest is just practise.

    The West will be an amazing series, I would not be surprise to see every series go 6 or 7. No one really is a weak link in that conference.

    I like the best of 7. In most 5 game series, the best team will win. But there is too much pressure on the top seed in 5 games. You must win at home or you end up with your backs against the wall. So I like 7 games better. You can escape bull crap calls like the Kirilenko flop and recover.

    Dallas, in my opinion, should beat new O. I really do not think they are as talented as their record.

    Houston is still alive. We are definately less talented than Utah. But we don't play dirty or flop, so I hope we ultimately take them down and move on.

    The Lakers I feel are overated, unless Gasol continues having 30 point games.

    The real Contenders are Boston, San Antonio, Pheonix, Cleveland, and Dallas in my opinion.

    Definitely not a playoff team.

    But to be fair San Antonio are an amazing team, especially in the playoffs. I wouldn't be surprised to see them win it again.
