Not to mention the fact that none of the remaining teams looks unbeatable, there is no *dominant* team this year expected to win it all.

Not to mention the dramatic early flameouts of the Spurs and Celtics and sweep of the Lakers? HOLY COW that's 3 teams most of us expected to see playing in the conference finals.

Hands down the most interesting playoffs I've ever watched.

It also raises the spectre of potentially HUGE player moves this summer as a number of teams try to patch or completely rehab their team for the future.
Exactly. This is one of the most exciting playoffs in a long time with no clear cut favorite. It is wide open alright!

Btw, what happened to ShySister? Haven't heard from her for a couple of weeks now.

She was in a brutal wagon accident and left with amnesia. Sadly, there were about 300,000 people injured in the accident....mostly women and kids under 18.

There is no cure for the amnesia, but I heard buying a Rose jersey helps keep down the swelling.

The officiating throughout the playoffs sucks again this year. The NBA needs to fire all of these clowns and start over with new refs.

Bulls aren't going?
They lost the 5th game?
You mean the game was played this morning?!

Aw I missed it.

Hard to say. In any event the Bulls odds of winning this series are close to nil now so it's rather moot.

Playoff (in)experience is really turning out to be the deciding factor in the ECF and WCF this year.
