Personally, I can't wait for the rivalry to build between the Blazers and the Thunder, once Kevin Durant gets his team to the playoffs. Of course, the Thunder would have to improve dramatically to meet Portland in the playoffs, since I can't see the Blazers coming in any lower than the fourth seed in the west.

^^^^ I agree 100% LBJ has had all offseason to keep replaying that series in his mind and that @$$ whooping that they received at the hands of ORlando has to leave a bad taste in the Cleveland Cavs mouths

cavs and magics so let's see if Lebron can redeem himself.

Lakers vs Spurs

I think those may be the two best teams in the NBA.

1. Magic vs Cavs - Cavs will want payback, VC vs LBJ, New Superman vs Old Superman, should be intense
2. Lakers vs Spurs - Two powerhouse teams in the West with alot of history
3. Magic vs Celts - Boston will want revenge
4. Celts vs Cavs - Two of the top 3 seeds in the East square off
5. Magic vs Raptors - So that the Raps fans can sftu, Hedo vs Orlando, VC vs Toronto

It will be harder this year if he doesn't have the top seed and HCA.

I would like to see the Blazer/Lakers most of all but another good one would be the Jazz/Spurs or the Mavs/Nuggets again.

San Antonio vs. L.A. would be a very competitive series, but I personally think it's boring to watch the Spurs. For example, during the Pistons-Spurs NBA Finals, I fell asleep during game 7 because it was incredibly boring, but Orlando vs. Cleveland on the other hand would be very entertaining IMO. Just watching LeBron and Dwight play is entertainment enough, and now with Shaq joining Cleveland, and Vinsanity joining Orlando, the series becomes even more intriguing.

I want to see EITHER Magic VS Cavs or Magic VS Boston. I do not want to have to beat BOTH again this year. So this means the Magic must finish with 1 seed.

Had Odom went to Portland then that would have been a good one.

I was torn between Lakers vs. Spurs & Magic vs. Cavs

But I definately would like to see Shaq vs. DHow. If Shaq manages to stay healthy, I predict that this series will be one of the/if not the most entertaing one next post season.

Dream 2010 Playoffs Matchups:

1. Lakers vs 8. Clippers (LA vs LA - the best versus the future best?)
2. Spurs vs 7. Mavs (Texas showdown)
3. Nuggets vs 6. Blazers (Northwest Showdown)
4. Hornets vs 5. Jazz (Battle of the Best PG's in Basketball - bragging rights solved)

1. Cavs vs 8. Knicks (the LeBron battle starts before even the offseason)
2. Celtics vs 7. Bulls (rematch city)
3. Magic vs 6. Raptors (Vince's Magic versus Turkoglu's Raptors)
4. Atlanta vs 5. HEAT (offense versus offense - Wade versus one of the best young NBA teams)

All 8 matchups would make for great TV and would be great for the NBA.

I think Bulls vs Heat would be great. The Celtics would kill us with Garnett back.

All sounds good, won't happen for a few reasons (Clips likely won't make it, Mavs likely won't finish 7th, Blazers likely won't finish behind Hornets/Jazz and the Knicks likely won't make it)

And the Magic-Raptors series would be labelled: Dwight's Magic vs Bosh's Raptors, Vince vs Toronto and Hedo vs Orlando would be a sub-title

Good ideas though :clap:

I appreciate it.

Of course it's probably all not going to play out exactly that way, but it is very possible. I think the Clips are as good as any team not in the West top 7. The Knicks could be as good as any East team not in the top 7 if they bring back Nate, Lee and add Sessions. The Hornets and Jazz are both better than Portland if they stay healthy.

If it was Magic vs Raptors, the entire conversation will be about whether the Magic was better with Turk or is better with Vince.

i cant wait to see a magic cavs series and lebrick get his *** handed to him again. everyone is talking about lebron had all season to wach tapes, but you didnt think howard has all season to watch tapes of the finals and see in some games how they just blew it. i know he must be motivated more then ever.

I'm going with a portland-denver. It'd make for some serious entertaining basketball, but a Boston-Orlando grudge match with a healthy KG would make for some interesting viewing too.

Well if Lebron couldn't win last year with HCA and the far superior team, then I'm not sure he would win this year either if Orlando has the HCA.
