Using your scale as reference, my prediction for Miami Heat, Spurs and Thunder are blue; Bulls is red. I had expected Heat to beat the Knicks in 4, but they took an extra game to do it. Didn't expect Spurs and Thunder to take care of business in 4. Between the two, I expected Spurs to take more games to wrap things up.

Rest or rust? Thunder near end of playoff wait - Yahoo! Sports

I hope to see Thunder at the Conference Finals. Not only because they have more rest (and practice) time, not only because I hate the Lakers (hope Nuggets would toss them out in Game 7 tonight), but also because they have shown championship-level performance. Only other team in the West I can say the same of is Spurs. While I'll be rooting for Spurs all the way, a Spurs-Thunder Conference Finals will be a series I'll greatly enjoy regardless of the outcome. Until then, I like to see Clippers scrape by and meet Spurs in Round 2. Would be a fine series me thinks.

So sorry for the Bulls. Looks like Heat will be cruising smoothly to the NBA Finals.

Check out Magic Johnson's comment today if the Lakers lose. While i agree with him, it probably wasn't appropriate to talk about someone's job like that publically. You can be sure game 7 of LAL/DEN will have enormous ratings especially after his comment. Here is an excerpt.

Magic Johnson: Mike Brown will be fired if Lakers lose to Denver - latimes.com

"They're going to run Mike Brown first out of town," Johnson said as an ESPN NBA analyst Friday. "Then second will be Andrew Bynum. Then third will be Pau Gasol."

Fire Ron Artest as well. Lakers' reputation will remain in the toilet if he and his twin brother Bynum remain with the team.

I think he will have to fired if he allows his team to lose a 3-1 series lead after being so dominant the first 4 games. That would mean he made no adjustment and allowed his team to lose 3 games in a row

I think u are confusing Greg with Orange.

You are correct. I'm Bulls first, still have all my old hats and ticket stubs from back when I had hair lol. Spurs are my 2nd fav team.

However, like Greg, I'm an NBA fan...I love the stories, the drama, the surprises etc. I was REALLY happy for the mavs last year since they've come so far over the years and while I don't like Cuban that much, I respect what he has done and more importantly that the guy BLEEDS mavs basketball.

They sure have.

Their chances don't look good tonight with the arrival of Ron Artest (yes, I know his real name) off suspension but you never know.

If Pao Casal stinks it up tonight like he did Thursday, then that changes. Three points. Three rebounds. No wonder Bryant was in his face.

Speaking of respect, I give a huge shout-out to Nuggets head coach George Karl. What with the problems he has had with his son, not to mention himself with the throat cancer issue, well he is one quality dude-period! He does a lot of work with children charities, most notably St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

George Karl-class on and off the court.

You were debating with both of us. I'm not a bulls fan though, I simply didn't agree with your view regarding the Bulls and the Sixers.....
