NBA hoops predictions

post #1 of 56

IF the Lakers get out of the first round, it's done. Over. Call it in. 4 in a row. Won't matter who's next or next after that. Just get outta the way, Lake show comin' through.

IF they do not, it comes down to Sac'to and San Antone, and then, who cares.

I don't think so. They have some of the toughest competition for their crown this year. Sacramento could very well beat them, along with San Antonio, Dallas, and maybe even Utah or Minnesota pulling off upset rounds. Remember way back when Utah swept the Lakes, even when everyone thought that the Lakers would win? Just a thought.

That's a big IF boy. As things stand right now, they'll play San Antonio.

well, were I a Laker I'd choose dealing with Sactown, not because they can't win - they CAN (just that they WON'T) - but because the Spurs have improved over past seasons and they have the best player (and most valuable) in the league in Tim Duncan. They're more athletic than they have been. And Mr. Robinson can probably suck it up and put forth a meaningful playoffs on his way out.
Dallas is soft. They play no D.

It's less an IF everyday, by the way. Shaq is back to being quick again.

All that's coming out of the east is whichever team proves to be the fourth best in the league. Again.

Fourth???????? Try sixth or seventh. Western Conf. teams better than anyone in the East are: Sac., San Antonio, LA, Portland, Minnesota, OOtah and maybe Seattle.

So if it's a tossup in the West (I still don't think LA will make it), who's gonna be in the finals for the East? I got New Jersey.

WTFH, I think you forgot the little dangly stringy bits underneath the round bit. I think mauve will be the hoop colour this season, that's my prediction.

How about college hoops? How did your bracket turn out? I picked 3 of the final 4, 1 of the final 2, and missed by 3 points the national champ.

Mavs are toast...just got punked by the Lunks. San Antonio will finish #1...Lakes will probably play Dallas first round. They'll get by them but will not get by either Sacramento or San Antonio.
post #13 of 56
C's are going to take it this year. Bird draining threes. McHale and the Cheif down low. Oh wait.. wrong year.

Sacramento vs. Jersey. Sacramento in 4.

Celtics will beat Philly in the first round - Iverson will go 10 for 40 and so will Antoine, but 'Toin's shots will be 3's and that will provide the difference.

Hey Ryan,

It looks like the Flakers could be taking on my team, the Blazers, in the first round. There are still lots of podunk Montana ski resorts I can get trinkets from so I'm willing to wager what I did on the World Series. What are you willing to bet?

Rio,

where the Blazers are involved, especially where they meet the Lake show, I'd just be taking your trinkets. This is as good as a done deal. Still, if you must...

I could grab a snowboard-shaped bottle opener for ya.

seriously, pick a bottle of wine, case of ale, some "beachy" party favor, whatever; it won't matter. your call.

Ryan -

A snowboard shaped bottle opener from one of the snowboarder infested slush pile they try to pass off as ski areas in SoCal would be fine.

Heh.

Maybe you should just buy Rasheed a bong instead.

Well he knocked down a couple shots yesterday, in a game much more important for Portland than Los Angeles. Enjoy that one, Rio, 'cause that's the meager sip Blazer fans will be savoring all summer. If LA and Portland meet, Lakers sweep.
post #24 of 56
Wow, due to the traditional end-of-season skid by the Blazers they might not meet the Flakers in the first round. Oh well, at least they can feel safe knowing they have the lowest risk for glaucoma of any team in the league.

I'm going with the Spurs this year, looks like they will meet the Lakers in the 2nd round. They haven't had any problems with the Lakers so far this year, and even though the Lakers will be up for the playoffs, a good team will beat 1 or 2 guys any day.

except those odd days that have found their way into the playoffs the past three seasons.

FOUR

***************

but seriously, Westcat, your point is well taken. Thing is, the Lakes ARE a good team (to state the obvious) and while one or two players don't a whole team make, if you surround those players with the right parts, AND those two players happen to be the most dominant players in the game, it's a little different. No one in the league can guard either player, both KObe and Shaq pull defenders from other players, and Fox, Fish, D-George and some dude named Horry have shown they will take and make the big shots.

Nah, Lakes are peaking at the EXACT right time.

to repeat: GIT OUT THE WAY.

Hey, don't overlook the Jail Blazers. They're coming on strong this week. 2 wins including one over the Laker, no suspensions and no arrests.

Rio,

blazers had a chance to really help themselves last night, in the last game of the year, with a lot at stake, and they blew it, losing to the - gasp - Clippers.

This is the perfect summation of the Blazers. When the game means something, they don't show up. This is old news.

Last night's loss said it all about your guys.

They'll be out quick.
post #29 of 56
What, they lost? I wasn't paying attention. I watched the game of the season last night, Arsenal versus Manchester United. Shows you how much I'm into the NBA.

doesn't SOCCER stuff belong in the "humor" section?
