  • They are finally here: Eastern Conference Playoffs - Bracket Watch and Who Ya Got ?

    They are finally here !
    The Brackets are set and the NBA doesn't reseed.
    So a poll will give a voting shot at the first round.. which I will post ...

    Raps vs Bucks

    Cavs vs Pacers

    Whiz vs Hawks

    Bulls vs Celtics

    I am taking the Raps, Paul George and the Pacers to take the struggling Lebrons in a monster upset, the Hawks to take the Whiz whose defense is poor and Wall can't keep his composure when the going gets tough and the Bulls to beat the Chowderheads primarily because I just can't pick cheer for the Celts

    We can comment away on the semi's and finals..

    I really think the Celtics are going to struggle against the Bulls. I love that match-up actually. Only upset in round 1.. might go 7 games though.

    I have the Raptors, Lebrons and Wizards getting to round two though.

        I'm going with a pair of 1st round upsets. Hawks and Bulls make it through.

            You also picked the Pacers. Seems Demographic is going for the power of positive thought over rationality lol

                Just for kicks, I'm taking two upsets. The Hawks could beat the Wizards - the Wiz have cooled off of late, and if the Hawks catch fire...

                And I'm picking the Bulls to beat the Celtics because that would be DELICIOUS.

                I think the LeBrons get out of round one.

                    Yeah, I went with the prevailing wisdom on the Bulls upsetting the Celts. I think Raptors win in 5 or 6, Cavs and Wizards win in 6 or 7, and Bulls/Celts will be a game 7 tossup. Bulls' bruising, physical style of play, and swarming offensive rebounding is going to be really tough for the Celtics, and Butler defending Thomas for stretches could be a huge issue. A lot will come down to the Celtics' supporting cast being able to score, and I just don't think they have the pieces. That said, I do think Stevens is the better coach in this series, but that roster has big weaknesses that are hard to cover.

                      I so want Boston to lose to Chicago, but I'm picking all four higher seeds to advance, Raps-Wizards in the conference finals with the Raptors making the finals because blind homerism.

                      Then we get beat in 5 by Golden State

                          Celtics and Bulls is going to be a tough one. Isaiah will be defended by Rondo and most likely Butler at times. I do hope they lose but I think they'll win in 6 or 7 in a competitive series.

                            So glad we're not playing the Bulls in the first round. They have no 3pt shooting but Butler can go off.. and Rondo is a lot better than he was early in the season. He can steal a game for them just by picking a part the Celtics defense.

                            I believe Wade is back too.

                            It's too bad they traded Taj and McBuckets.. both those guys would have helped against a series like this.
