Why the Bucks? I don't think they have playoff experience and such.

I just dont see OKC winning in the playoffs. When the games get slower and more physical, factor that with their lack of experience I just dont think it plays into their hands. I see them as like the Blazers last season, out in 6 to whoever (even then the Blazers had homecourt).

Thunder have a tough run to the end of the season, we'll see what their made of after that

Why the Bucks? I don't think they have playoff experience and such.

John Salmons, Jerry Stackhouse, Kurt Thomas, Luke Ridnour, Carlos Delfino, Charlie Bell, and Andrew Bogut all have playoff experience. The only players in their rotation that don't are Brandon Jennings, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, and Ersan Ilyasova.

Why the Bucks? Because they play great defense, have one of the best centers in the league, and because the Celtics have been falling apart the whole season.

It is true that the Celtics will probably get a ton more calls in that series. In fact the NBA might just force them into the second round to make more money, but the Bucks match up nicely against them. And Bogut matches up great against the overrated, stupid, slow and out of shape Kendrick Perkins.

#4 JAZZ vs. #5 THUNDER

Eastern conference champs: Raptors
Western Conference champs: Lakers

Champs: Raptors in 3.

The raptors do so well they take the finals in only 3 games. Then Bosh decides to sign for 10mil over 10 years and then lbj signs here for 12 mil over 10 years and then joe johson signs for 3 mil over 10 years. the raptors have a rotation that looks like : pg: calderon/jack sg: jj sf: lbg pf:cb4 c:bargs and go off for an 11 peat and go down as the team of the decade while demar derozan wins player of the decade. its so obvious gosh.

#2 NUGGETS vs. #7 SPURS
#3 MAVS vs. #6 SUNS
#4 JAZZ vs. #5 THUNDER

Dallas and Phoenix would be the best West matchup but right now, I think HCA would be the reason why Dallas wins in 6 or 7.

Bobcats can beat Orlando. That's my first round upset.

I will just jump to finals
it looks like its going to be a Lakers Cav's final where cleveland sweeps the lakers and James overtakes Kobe as the new king of the NBA.

My dream finals
Jazz (homer pick) taking on king James and they finally bring a title to Salt Lake City!
