NBA Playoffs 2013 thread: Who ya wit?!!

dsims2k3:

 With the drama that occurs in jump ball, I think that playoff time would be a great diversion.

Who are you guys rolling with?



Lakers all day.

ErieHog:

I'm going to hop on the Nugget wagon, and hope they do well.


I'm definitely pro-Spurs,  pro-Celtics, pro-Thunder, and pro-whoever is playing Miami.




OnTheHillHogFan:

I have become a Thunder fan just because of how close they are and the fact that they have really developed the players that they have drafted instead of relying on FA's.


Like Erie said I always find myself cheering for the Spurs and Celtics as well and I love the way the Nuggets and Grizzlies play.


As long as the Clippers or Heat don't win I'm good ;D

The_Bionic_Pig:

All I can say is Wow....

As bad as Russell Westbrook just crossed P Bev?

Poor Pat managed to not fall over. It was close though.

Going with BROOKLYN against La Clippers in the finals.. 2 - 4th seeds.

Reality.. Heat in 5, maybe 4.. can't be 3 can it?

Thunder sweep the heat in the finals.

Good one.

Dogtown Donkey:

My team is the Rockets, but they're going to to get swept fairly easily. After that, I really don't care. I'll just see what unfolds and see if a team pulls me in their direction.

Can't see anyone beating the Heat in a series.

Bryan (CHF):

Thunder up!

cmpledger:

Don't really care now that David Lee is out for the playoffs. No one is going to stop Lebron and the Heat anyways. Lebron is so much better than anyone else in the NBA it's not even funny.

Dr Carl aka Shorthog:

NBA?

Big Nasty 34:

I think the real question is do you take the Heat or the field. Really hope the field wins, but find it unlikely.

Oliver:

I'm hoping that the Lakers sweep Jim Buss and Mike Antoni out of town. 



Johnboy:

I don't have a team that I follow closely, but I just don't see any team beating the Heat in a series.

Berno:

Bulls fan here, but I doubt they'll get past Brooklyn.

hogsanity:

I only watch the NBA in passing, but my team is ANY ONE OTHER THAN THE HEAT. 

Cure:

King James and the rest of the Heatles.

jbell96:

Only two teams out west that could give the Heat trouble are Memphis & a healthy Spurs team. Problem is, those teams don't really match up well with OKC, so I'm going for a repeat of last year. Heat in 5 over OKC. Let the record show I am not thrilled about that, but they've easily been the best team in the league this year.

Dogtown Donkey:

Why does everyone not like the Heat? Because they're the best team?

Kind of lost respect when three NBA greats decided to become Ring chasers by joining forces.  Especially Wade, since he's already proven he could win one without doing that. 

That and the way they presented themselves.

But now I don't lose any sleep over it.  The NBA is one of the most predictable leagues.  The Heat are going to win this year and next year barring major injuries.  Then the reigns will be passed on to the Thunder. 

JonClaudeVanHam:

The Heat will win. I hope they do it without losing a single game.

Lol you think Heat will only win 2 more? The reigns won't be "passed on" to the Thunder until Lebron retires. He could very well win the NBA title until he retires, he's that much better than the next closest guy.

I understand that, and I kinda felt that way when it first came together, but isn't the whole purpose to win championships and have the best team possible?

If you're Chris Bosh, why wouldn't you leave Toronto for Miami and play with a real team for once? If you're LeBron James, why wouldn't you leave Cleveland and finally get some real help? I don't think those Cleveland teams he had were as bad as people make them out to be sometimes, but they clearly weren't good enough to win a championship and their FO keep sinking money into guys like Larry Hughes.

Funny how he waited so long to start winning them.  Guess he was just lazy. 

And 250 lbs isn't an advantage anymore once you hit your early 30's.

His game wasn't complete until last year, when he finally started working the post. Now it is and will be near impossible to stop him or his team in a 7 game series

I realize you need help.  All great superstars do.  But Wade and LeBron were type A superstars.  They were supposed to look for "help" in the form of secondary stars.  Not other top 5 players.  I mean Bosh was easily a top 10 player when they first began.  Just disappointing to see such great talent not challenge themselves. 

It's kind of like picking basketball teams on the playground and giving the best player on the court the first five picks.  I mean sure he could pick the 5 best players on the court, but he should be better than that.

In the short term, I agree completely.  He won't have his same game he has now in 4 years time. 

TomasPistola:

Been a Spurs fan since the David Robinson days. I'll be rooting for them, but OkC is gonna be tough to beat.

Lebron is going back to Cleveland when this deal is up so he can be the conquering hero. Just watch.

blacksuit:

I love the NBA but don't really have a team, which makes me part of a small minority among Arkansans. Lots of NBA haters in our state, and most that do watch cheer for a specific team, usually Lakers, Celtics, or Thunder. Maybe there are some Memphis fans out there but I haven't met many.

What am I watching for this year? LeBron is always a must-watch, he's one of the greatest players ever and is in his prime. Durant and Westbrook are also fun to watch, plus Chris Paul. I want to see how the second tier teams do in the playoffs, especially the Clippers and Pacers (Paul George triple double in game 1). Nets are intriguing with Deron Williams quietly playing really well late in the year. Injuries have hit the mid-range playoff teams pretty hard this year, which clears the way for a Thunder/Heat finals.

Cuz Wade has turned into a huge punk since Lebron joined, the way Lebron left, Spolstra, Battier, Mike miller, Chalmers, and freakin' alien head bosh.

Seriously I despise EVERY player on that roster.

Agreed 100%. And one of the biggest floppers too.

The Heat flop hard. Really would LOVE to see them lose.

Really?

How about when he averaged 3 points in the 4th quarter against the Mavs? What happens if he does that again.

He's won ONE title. I'll wait until he's won at least 3 before I crown him truly unstoppable.

If one of those guys goes down they are in trouble.
