I see more people hating the bulls then liking them on all the internets.

Why don't you tell me what the margin of victory is for the Spurs and Lakers vs. their first round opponets?

Why don't you pull up past statistics?
Yeah they're 3-0, the whole point was that they've struggled in those 3 wins and havent really been impressive, which you would expect from a number one seed playing a team that finished under .500. To further elaborate, both the Lakers and Celtics go on the road tonight and win big, winning by 14 and 17 points respectively. Good teams do that. Championship teams do that. The Bulls who were seeded higher have yet to do that.

Good Post. But I see the Bulls receiving a gift to the 3rd round because i think they will not be challenged by the Hawks either in round 2

I was hoping they would face the Magic, the one we are accustomed to seeing in the playoffs the last couple of years. Those trades they made this year dont seem to be panning out for the Magic. That said theyre only down 1-2, if they win the next game, the series will be tied and Magic wouldve regained the home court advantage. Hawks win, the series is likely over.

That last game at Portland, in which the Blazers beat the Mavericks, someone flung an object that hit Mark Cuban, Mavs owner, in the face. Thats brutal alright.

It really just comes down to matchups. Some teams just match up well with other teams, so seeding is not as significant.

Bull****. Although I agree about some teams match up well with other teams, seeding is way more significant. This is the NBA. The National Basketball Association. Teams, that make the playoffs are the cream of the crop. Even more so once teams advance in the playoffs. At that level all teams match up well with each other. You cant be one dimensional at that point. Its all about making adjustments and strategy. You want to have any edge possible. Thus seedings are very important. You get in a 7 game series, you want the home court advantage. Plain and simple. Having the number one seed, and the overall best record is an advantage in the playoffs.Although having the best record in the league doesnt guarantee anything due to variables during a long regular season, the best team may not end up with the best record. But seedings are significant. Ask any NBA coach.

Game starting now and it's too many Bulls fans in the arena right now. There should be a limit on tickets sold to fans of the other team
