Magic did your Lakers in. Lebron was just aiding and abetting.
I think the Rockets/GS series may be the best of the playoffs. Steven's definitely had the C's ready for the bucks, game `1. My gut and game one of Houston and Gs tell's me Houston isn't as deep a team as last year and Harden is more like Kobe than Lebron. Denver and Portland are two very interesting teams as are the 6er's and the Raptors.

Watching the NBA for the first time in many years(Bucks). What happened to defense? No following shot or crashing the boards for the rebound. Ball handling looks like traveling. almost all shots are for 3 pointers. Run down, throw up ball, run back.= Boring. The game is ruined!

I have not watched a playoff game since Jordan retired.

Have not watched a regular season game since James Worthy retired.

Years ago I happen to notice a Memphis game was on that night. I thought " I have not seen Shane Battier play since he graduated from Duke." I watch about 5 minutes of the game and had enough of pro basketball.

why are you posting in a thread call out for those not watching the NBA playoffs??

Durant looks as automatic as any player I've seen.

This Jokic guy in Denver is interesting to watch. Point Center?
back at it likes this.

Haha, next we'll probably see: "The NBA is not a sport."

I haven't watched Jokic play other than highlights but he is averaging right around 20 ppg. He better hold his own to advance.

At this time I can't see Denver winning in Portland, Denver seems to have maximize their abilities while Portland seems to have another gear in the box.
Jokic is probably the best big man in the game at this time.
Huston must win two in Huston to make this series interesting, who will survive in the East ?, I can't believe I am saying this, but I think Boston will.

it's so easy to look at was currently has happened and use that to predict the future. all the sudden, as of right now, the sixers are beasts. I think portland should look better than what they looked like last game.
So the kool aide I'm drinking is: GS can play more ambidextrous. Durant ads torque to the speed gears. And Houston looks so weak against them so far. Of course I remember GS losing to the Cav's after being up and the OKC series when the HAD to win a game 7. All pre Durant.

Yeah GS looks to be what we thought they were - The Best - great guards Thompson, Curry, the best player in NBA - Durant and an all star supporting cast
Iggy, Green, Livingston, Looney, Bogut and of course Cousins who isn't even playing. Houston has a problem, State Farm better get them protected, because The Beard can't do it all by himself.
(side note How Did OKC loose with Durant, Hardin, Westbrook, Ibaka and Adams ?) I digress, Houston has the ability to get deep in to the game with GS, but Paul has to contribute more and Rivers has to stay hot
Great matchup

Denver- Portland good series Denver's big man The Joker is a very pleasant surprise, but neither can beat GS

Boston -Milwaukee Interesting, but both are on a lower level than GS

Philly - Toronto also interesting but unless Embid decides to play hard, they have no shot. When all of Phily is playing hard they are a damned talented team, smart azzes too. ! Maybe second best

The league has allowed the players to do want they want and has decimated the level of competition. 3/4 of the league has no shot against these teams

Funny #1-4 seeds in both the East and the West are playing - Not an accident.

Houston should have the ability. But this year they lack defensive toughness. The Ariza loss was big. And so far, as a team they haven't had any offensive rhythm. And probably aren't going to get it. GS's D is to good and they'be been riding Harden's 50 point games for to long this season. (as opposed to working on and finding team offensive rhythm)

WHAT A GAME, four OT, would have been five had Jokic made that free throw, Toronto in a must win situation, Leonard needs help, more than likely will be a Clipper next season.
Did not think Milwaukee could win in Boston, some very good basketball been played.

I could live with the part pertaining to the Eastern Conference, no way the Sixers win a game seven @ GS.

Yup, blame David Stern. He wanted the NBA to look like "professional" wrestling.
