OKC - I picked them to win once they got Kendrik
Boston - if Shaq is healthy if not move them to 4
Heat - they where tested by the Sixers and I think got better
Lakers - Kobe is Kobe, the Pau gets back to play tough they might be my second choice
Dallas - Dirk and Kidd are running out of time and know it
Bulls - would be hire but you can only get so far riding 1 player
Memphis - They are a notch or two below the above teams but a notch or 2 above Atlanta
Atlanta - they played well but aren't a real threat IMO

Bulls - would be hire but you can only get so far riding 1 player

Why do people think the Bulls are just riding one player? The Bulls four players of Rose, Deng, Boozer and Noah gave them 71.6 PPG in the regular season. While the Celtics big four only got them 60.9 PPG with the Heat big 3 getting 70.9 PPG. Since the playoffs started, the Bulls have still gotten 68.2 PPG from Rose, Deng, Boozer, Noah and that's with Boozer struggling pretty bad in the first round. But at the same time guys like Korver/Bogans scoring is up to make up that difference as well. Anyways it makes no sense to me, how they are riding one player. When the team has two other players averaging over 17 PPG and a center who is one of the best centers in the league.



1. Heat

I think the only way to respond to this is with the following.

- This is a message board where people discuss opinions.
- Its based in American where we have freedom of speech
- The Lakers are 2 time defending champs
- Kobe is a top 5 - top 10 player of all time, some put him higher
- Odom when dedicates is special
- Jackson is a great coach
- Pau when he has heart plays great and tough
- Bynum when healthy is one of the better centers
- So props Lakers, mad props, you deserve all the props in the world for you accomplishments

I may hate your team and think Kobe is the scum of the Earth and I may think many of your fans are far to arrogant when it comes to your team but you deserve props for your success and historic dedication to winning. I wish the Sixers had it.

First of all Stebo is my moderator, i go back and forth with him. If I cross the line, he lets me know.

Second of all, I don't think the Lakers are as good as Stebo describe them, I think he favors them solely for their championship and nothing else.

You haven't crossed the line at all man. But I think your mindset is, "if the heat are yout team, then you have to be a blind homer and put them at the top no matter what". That's not the proper mindset to have. The Lakers haven't shown it lately, but they have another gear as does the Heat. The Lakers are the best until they are knocked off, and that's reality.

Nope. I am not a blind homer but since there is no team clearly better than us, I will rank us better. The only team in the play-offs that can give us trouble are the Mavs IMHO.

Being realistic, the Mavericks arguably have the best frontcourt in the league.

Dirk Nowitzki and Tyson Chandler compliment eachother so beautifully it's remarkable. Dirk being arguably the best scorer in the league (Him, KD, and Melo) and Tyson finishing 3rd in DPOY voting and being a beast inside. Marion and Peja are two completely different style of wings. Peja can spread the floor and Marion can post up, score well on fastbreaks, and guard 2-4's. Kidd has been playing well, so has Barea. Terry and Stevenson at SG is solid as well.

I like the balance, and I like the way Dirk is playing. He's playing like this is his year, and he has the pieces to do so.

We'll see. Barring a miraculous Game 4 by Brandon Roy, the Mavs would have beaten a very talented Blazers team in 5. They closed it out in Portland and did so with no other than Dirk shooting 6-6 from the line.

I like our chances against anyone, anywhere.

Realist, that your team isn't good enough?

As a Heat fan, since this summer and the "decision", I am embarrassed by your picks.

Fixed ;)

How can we rank teams from "best to worst" when were in the playoffs and matchups are more vital than talent itself? You can have the most talented team and an unfavorable matchup and your season is done.

Pointless imo. You all know who i think is #1.

The Lakers and the Bulls are gonna be in the NBA Finals. Everyone who ranks the Bulls so low are just haters. Besides Rose and one or two others The whole Bulls team had a down series and they still almost swept the Pacers. The Bulls handled the Heat and The Celtics this year and they took the Celtics to 7 games last year as a .500 team. No matter what the first series told us, The Bulls and Lakers should still be considered the favorites.

Fair enough, lol
you said arguably alot, so im pretty sure you know the truth lol

I said arguably so I didn't have people argue one or two better scorers than Dirk. Dirk is one of the greatest scorers the league has seen and still remains at the top.

As already said, it's pointless to say which teams are the best. Who's better: L.A. or Dallas? We're about to find out.

No, I really don't see us beating the Lakers. Dirk vs LA will be fun just to show how great Dirk is. Memphis is a good team, just saying they should be higher than Dallas isn't logical imo.

I didn't put memphis over Dallas... I am just trying to make a point that people are just automatically putting the grizz last because they think we got "lucky" against the spurs or we just match up favorably with them. The truth is we have beaten all the best teams in the NBA already with exception of chicago

Just curious. Is there a way this can be tallied? Ala 8 pts for each 1st (place vote), 7 pts for each 2nd, 6 pts for each 3rd etc.

Maybe make this thread go for 3 days and you could count up the final score. Interested in seeing the results.

You haven't crossed the line at all man. But I think your mindset is, "if the heat are yout team, then you have to be a blind homer and put them at the top no matter what". That's not the proper mindset to have. The Lakers haven't shown it lately, but they have another gear as does the Heat. The Lakers are the best until they are knocked off, and that's reality.

:clap:

props to the guru (and I had a smart ****response to one of your posts earlier this year)
I humbly stand incorrect in my assessment...

1) Bulls --- have HCA throughout, and they don't lose at home; couple that with best defense & great bench/coach, and they're in the best position to win it all
2) Mavericks --- loved their play against Portland... see them beating the Lakers
3) Thunder --- possibly the best team out West
4) Heat --- they could lose in 6 or win in 6 versus the Celtics, but I don't see them beating the Bulls
5) Lakers --- don't like the way they played against NOH
6) Celtics --- idk if they can keep up their play as of late... it was more about the Knicks sucking than the Celtics playing well imo
7) Grizzlies --- just facing a better team in OKC
8) Hawks --- no chance to beat the Bulls.

if no1 else has a chance, then there are no dark horses :laugh2:
and, I could see any team left winning this year besides Atlanta. That's how competitive this playoff is this year.

Yet we need more parity in the NBA, when when was the last time you felt like 7 teams could win it going into the conference semis?

I don't think i've ever thought 6 teams let alone 7 had a chance to win the whole thing. I've thought at points 7 total teams could make it to the finals, but only 3 or 4 would I have picked to win.
