    37. Philadelphia Sixers vs New Jersey Nets (1984 1st Round Eastern Conference) Nets win in 5, Nets won all 3 games in Philly while losing the two games in New Jersey. This was coming off winning the title in 1983 on one of the greatest teams ever. Nets win 101-98

    NOTE: It had to be a series that was a concluding game.

    So many great series to pick from but from a homer perspective. I'd pick the 2000 WCF. I had lost all hope when we were down by 15 or 16, thanks to an epic Blazer chokejob and Kobe, Shaq, Shaw etc stepping up, we clinched the gaem.

    Why would it be homerism? It was a good series.

    As a bulls fan for me it was the bulls cavs series where MJ hit the shot. One of the great sports moments of all time for me. The other series would be the pacers/bulls series that went 7 games.

    Yeah and IMO is what propelled the Bulls. Without that shot we lose in round 1 and don't get to advance to ECF to play the Pistons.

    I'm biased. Rockets over Knicks. Celebrating with my dad and older brother. I miss those times sports-wise.

    Nothing wrong with this especially for a 1st title.
