Default NBA Playoffs, Who is Watching

Good exciting basketball so far, will Cleveland be back in the finals, how about you folks north of the border, think Toronto will make it to the finals?.

Clevelander here. Doesn't look good for the Cavs to get by the Pacers. Quite frankly I don't think everyone here is going to lose their mind if they don't (I really don't care too much). I think we're waiting for the NFL draft. There are two sports seasons for me, football and waiting for football. I know, I know its the Browns. Still a fan.

I think they will get by Indy and Boston in the next round, the Sixers looks like a tough out.
My bad, if they get by Indy as the #4 seed they get Toronto next, insuring a trip to the Eastern conference finals.

Nope - hockey is where it's at for me. NFL'ers are wusses compared to what they go through.

There are some good series going on right now in the NBA. Hockey is good, particularly if there is a game 7 that seems to take on a life of its own, but it is a more of a niche sport than the juggernaut that the NBA has become recently around the globe.

Basketball as much greater international impact than hockey, they are 110 international players in the NBA from 43 countries.
would you like to take a guess as to which sport as a greater international audience.

Sadly the Commish has allowed the league to become unbalanced, Golden State and Houston are on one level, then come the Raptors, Celtics, Cavs, and Pelicans
and the Celtics are missing their 3 best players. The Sixers are making a late push.
poor Melo doesn't want to come off the bench for 28 million ? !!!

They need one more top scorer, their rookie Mitchell is going to really be something special. Plus no Rubio really hurts them. Rubio is fun to watch pass !

I can't take the NBA playoffs serious when you can turn the channel and watch the NHL playoffs. The level of intensity and desire in the NHL is unbelievable! Those guys are the toughest athletes on the planet.

Watching Lebron cry when someone gives him a dirty look just doesn't cut it for me.

Toronto is trouble, the Jazz looked outclassed and New Orleans could make that series interesting.
I think Cleveland lost the last two games of the regular season on purpose so they would be matched up with Toronto in the play-offs, GOT YOUR TICKET BABY.

76'ers looked unprepared for the last two minutes of games, they had sooooo many opportunities, and blew them all.
Huston and Golden State should be one heck of a series, Cleveland back in the NBA finals.

The great Le Bron is managing to pull out 2 series where the opposition had their chances. I would love to see someone besides LeBron in the Eastern finals but I guess that isn't going to happen.

Well the West is set, should be fun, but Golden State is too deep in my estimation; but we will get to see a bunch of All Stars and some HOF'ers all at the same time !

The East could get interesting, Brad the Boy Wonder is a spectacular coach. Not one vote for coach of the year ??? !!! WTF ?
and we get to see LeBron, continue to prove that he is one of the all time greats, ( I don't like him, but he is unbelievably good), and in the Conference finals for the 8th straight year !!

Basically the four teams I would have picked at the start of the season, too bad the injuries changed the complexion of the East.

Yet, as a Knicks fan, it's nice to see some talent on the floor !
