Well I'm not sure who would be best for Denver or Houston to play in round 1. For Houston I figure the Hornets would be best, but for Denver I'm not sure Dallas is good for them.

For Chicago, Orlando is definitely better for us.

Orlando is a broken team. Thats so unfortunate, they were having a great season. They beat the lakers, cavs, AND boston.

Im honestly only worried about the portland trail blazers to play the lakers. Everyone else should be okay.

I'd like to see boston play atlanta again. They are always entertaining.
