Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the NBA Mock Off-season Playoff voting. Every summer, between 50-65 PSD users participate in a game where each GM takes on the challenge of running the off-season for an NBA team. Those GM's are free to make trades, signings, pick up team option on players, conduct the draft etc as ways to help better improve their team. What we have here is the results of those GM's hard-work as we have now reached the playoffs.

Keep in mind when voting that teams have changed dramatically through the mock and many teams are operating with completely new starting line ups. So please take the time to look at the teams closely (depth chart and write up) before voting. Try to avoid being a homer and vote simply on who is the better team in the match up.

#1) New Jersey Nets vs. #4) New York Knicks

Nets have homecourt advantage!

Bulls Writeup:

Starting 5's:
Chicago: Rose - Salmons - Granger - Boozer - Noah
vs.
New Jersey: Jack - Wade - Kirilenko - Dirk - Camby

First off, I would like to give Josh and Jimbob props for advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals. This should be a fun one! This is a match-up between one team with a superstar and reigning MVP (Rose) surrounded by all top 10 positional players against a team with two superstars and really nothing much around them.

Granted, Dirk and Wade is a sexy combo. But what else do they have? An aging center with no offense in Marcus Camby?A bench player in Jack? A lanky tweener who hasn't put up over 12 PPG in 6 years with Kirilenko? We hope voters look past the flashy names that the Nets have and in-depth at the teams around the superstars. At the surface, the Nets win 2 starting matchups (SG and PF) and we win 3 (PG, SF, C). But we have top 10 players to throw at both of their superstars while their matchups against our primary options are heavily tilted in our favor. We feel we have better players around Rose than they do Wade and Dirk. We will have Salmons and Granger defending Wade most of time, both of whom are decent defenders who have a size advantage, not to mention can both score from the perimeter, opening up the interior for Boozer and Noah to operate. Dirk will be defended by Noah, who is an energy player (not to mention a top defensive Center in the league) and will get under Dirk's skin. Rose, Terry, and Boozer will have extremely easy matchups on defense, allowing them to focus on scoring. The way I see it, we have at least 4 top scoring options (Rose-25 PPG, Boozer-18 PPG, Granger-21 PPG, Terry-16 PPG) while the Nets only have 2. The offensive firepower will be complemented with easy defensive matchups to give us a clear advantage between the starting lineups.

Edge: Chicago Bulls

Benches:
Chicago: R. Stuckey - J. Terry - (J. Salmons) - D. Blair - B. Wallace
vs.
Orlando: Bayless - Green - Butler - Gomes - Miller

Here is another area where we really feel we have on the Nets. We have 3 players who are capable of starting on the bench. Terry is a top 8 SG coming off a terrific season in which he was the second option on the NBA Champs and Stuckey who averaged 15/5 on good efficiency last season as a starter. Both of those players are better than any bench player the Nets can put out. In fact, Stuckey is quite a bit better than the Nets' starter at PG (Jarrett Jack). It is clear that the Nets were forced to sacrifice their depth in order to acquire the Dirk/Wade combo. We also have Blair who was a starter for the Spurs who were the #1 seed in the West last year. Wallace and Miller, meanwhile, are both aging and essentially offset one another. In our opinion, all of the Nets' bench players would be 3rd stringers for us.

Big Edge: Chicago Bulls

Overall:
In the end, we feel that we have too much firepower to lose to the Nets in these Eastern Conference Finals. The Nets have built a respectable team and have the best 1-2 combo in the mock, but we feel like the players around the superstar(s) that we have are BY FAR better than anything the Nets can put around Wade/Dirk. The main problem faced by the Bulls this year was finding a legit 2nd option to Rose. We now have two in Granger and Terry, both borderline top 5 players at their positions. Neither team is a defensive powerhouse, but both teams have at least average defense, and we feel we have a better offense. If the Nets attempt to defend Rose with Wade, Wade will become worn out and won't be effective on offense, whereas we still have Terry and Granger who can serve as the primary scorers. In the end, we feel having a team with 1 superstar and 4 top ten positional players would be far more difficult to stop than a team with 2 superstars and then not much else. Benches should also play a rather large role in this series, and we have the clear advantage there as well. This series should be tight, with us winning in 6 or 7. Good luck to the Nets, may the best team win!



Nets Writeup[/QUOTE]

Congrats to the Bulls for making it to the ECF. Now onto the matchup and why we feel we are the better team and will win the series. Instead of doing the typical “player A>>>player B” argument, we are going to post how these players have fared against each other in real life. We already know who is better then who, but that isn’t everything necessarily everything.

Point Guards: Jarret Jack/Jerryd Bayless vs Derrick Rose/Rodney Stuckey- No denying that their starting PG and MVP, and Rodney Stuckey are better then Jack and Bayless…so they should have a huge advantage right? We think otherwise. According to their head to head matchups for their career, Rose averages 18.0 PPG on 44% shooting compared to Jack’s 11.6 PPG on 40% shooting. Lets take a look at the games though where Jack actually played over 25 minutes and how he fared against the MVP (Rose has played over 25 MPG in all their 9 meetings and averaged 35 MPG compared to Jacks 31 MPG and only 6 games where out of 9 where he played over 25 minutes. After the research is done, it shows that when Jack plays atleast 25 MPG against Rose, he averages 13.1 PPG on 43% shooting. Which is what the minimum he will be playing probably be playing plus probably more. So here were looking at roughly a 5 point advantage for Rose, on just about 1% better shooting..but while averaging 16.1 shots compared to Jacks 11.5. In fact if we take Rose’s 6 games that he played against Jack, when Jack played atleast 25 minutes his stats are actually slightly worse then his career head to head matchups with Jack at exactly 17 PPG on 43% shooting, on 16.9 shots per game. Either way you look at it, even though Rose is the better player which I definitely won’t argue, Jack has actually fared pretty damn well against him when given the minutes, and really isn’t as a huge a mismatch as one may think. Throw in the fact we have Marcus Camby and Andrei Kirilenko who are two of the best weakside help defenders waiting for Rose in the paint and we feel that Rose may have a tough series. As for Jerryd Bayless and Rodney Stuckey…Again we won’t argue that Bayless is better, but once again we feel that we aren’t at a huge disadvantage. In the 4 games they’ve faced each other, Stuckey averages 14.5 PPG on 44% shooting in 32 minutes a game, while Bayless 12.5 PPG on 57% shooting in only 20 minutes per game…pretty efficient if you ask me. While these two probably won’t see a whole lot of time on the floor, we feel that in the minutes they do play that Stuckey won’t destroy Bayless, and that Bayless will actually hold his own and possibly out play him.

Shooting Guard: Dwyane Wade/Willie Green vs John Salmons/Jason Terry- No denying here that the Nets have the advantage here. Whenever you have the best player at a position like we do in Wade, there will be an advantage. For his career Wade has averaged 26.6 PPG on 50% in 39 minutes per game, compared to 12.1 PPG on 44 % shooting in 29 minutes per game. I’ll be fair though and break it down like I did last matchup. In their career 22 matchups, they have played 15 games where both players played at least 25 minutes. Research shows that in those games Wade averages 27.3 PPG on 48 % shooting which is a hair more points on a tiny bit worse shooting. Salmons on the other hand averages 16 PPG on 45% shooting. 4 point upgrade in points and 1% shooting. Still a 11 point advantage for us, however I am willing to bet Salmons probably won’t play a lot and for most of the game Wade will be facing Terry which means Salmons won’t be capable of his 16 PPG, specially on a team where he would be the 4th option. If the Bulls do decide to play him that many minutes, that’s fine with us. It takes away from Terry, who is the better player. If the Bulls do decide to play Terry more, Wade still has the advantage here, as Terry can’t guard Wade what so ever. We saw it in the finals with Kidd on Wade because Terry is just too small and will get abused. Terry was never known for his defense..why would it start now. Wade has averaged 23 PPG on 48% in 37 minutes compared to Terry’s 16 on 45% in 33 minutes. Even in the playoffs, the two times they’ve faced each other Wade has gotten the upper hand in which Wade has averaged 30 PPG on 50% shooting in 40 minutes compared to Terry’s 20 PPG on 48% shooting in 36 minutes. For the bench I am going to compare Green to Salmons, since even though he is technically the 6th man, he will be playing starter minutes and closing out the game where Salmons won’t play that much. I know a lot of you see Willie Green and might laugh, but this is another matchup where even though Salmons, the better player, really doesn’t get the best of Green at all. Green averages 9.2 PPG in 22 minutes on 43% shooting, compared to Salmons who only averages 10.8 in roughly 34 minutes. So even though he is playing 12 more minutes he is only outscoring him by 1.6 points. That gives us reason to believe that even though Salmons will see more time then Green, due to Wade playing the majority of the game, Green will definitely hold his own and not allow Salmons to outplay him much If any.

Small Forward: Andrei Kirilenko/Ryan Gomes vs Danny Granger/Wayne Ellington- Another matchup for the Bulls have the better positional player in which we can’t deny in Granger over Kirilenko. Granger gets the best of AK47 here in scoring but similar to Rose/Stuckey vs Jack/Bayless..the difference isn’t as big as one might think. For their careers against each other Andrei averages 10.7 PPG/5.4 RPG/3.8 APG on 40% in 29 minutes compared to Granger who averages 17.9 PPG/5.0 RPG/2.3 APG on 49% in 32 minutes…but on only 12 shots. Even though Granger is shooting very good, AK is a great matchup against him due to his length and being an excellent defender. We also feel that even though Granger is clearly the better scorer, AK47 is overall a more complete player. If Granger is only getting 12 shots against him as the #1 option in Indy..how many will he get playing next to Boozer and Rose, who will need their fair amount of shots as well. For the bench here, it’s probably a wash or a slight advantage to us. Throw in the fact that Ellington..an undersized SG, is being forced to play out of position against Gomes benefits us. Plus Gomes has been a starter in this league so he isn’t terrible. Again these two players won’t be playing much, but we still have the better player here and better matchup here on the bench.

Power Forward: Dirk Nowtizki/Brad Miller vs Carlos Boozer/Dejaun Blair- Another advantage for the Nets here. Current finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki vs Carlos Boozer. I bet the Bulls miss having Gibson here. There is absolutely no way that Carlos Boozer will be able to guard Dirk. None what so ever. If guys who are actually good defenders like Ibaka, Batum, Gasol, Wallace, Haslem, Bosh couldn’t guard Dirk these past playoffs..Then there will be no reason that Boozer will be able to handle him. In fact out of all the advantages, this is probably the biggest one. Dirk averages 27.2 PPG/8.5 RPG/2.8 APG on 51% shooting in 38 minutes compared to Boozers 18.2 PPG/8.0 RPG/3.0 APG on 56% shooting in 32 minutes. While Boozer does shoot better %, he is getting outscored by 9 PPG. If we look at the last 4 games they have played Dirk has absolutely murdered him averaging 33 PPG on 53 % shooting compared to Boozer’s 11.8 PPG on 47% shooting. In fact they will probably put Noah on Dirk as well, that still doesn’t matter, and probably benefits us as well. That would take their best shot blocker out of the paint and on the perimeter, leaving Wade a free lane to the basket with no fear of getting blocked or intimidated by Carlos Boozer. It also leaves Boozer who is an inferior rebounder to Noah, on Marcus Camby who will do a better job on the glass. For the bench its Jared Jeffries vs Dejuan Blair. Blair is the better here, but the advantage he has on Jeffries doesn’t make up for the big advantage Dirk has over Boozer. Blair may get extended minutes too but if he does, it just means he will be guarding Dirk some. While Blair is still a very solid player he is still inferior to Boozer and Dirk would have an even bigger game on Blair due to his height and lack of speed.

Center: Marcus Camby/Brad Miller/DeSagana Diop vs Joakim Noah/Ben Wallace/Francisco Elson- Camby and Noah are very similar players both which are good defenders, very good rebounders, and excellent shot blockers. This is where it gets interesting. Even though Noah is no doubt younger, quicker, and more athletic than Camby… for some reason Camby actually outplays Noah head to head. Head to head Camby averages 11.4 PPG/15 RPG/2.5 APG/3.1 BPG on 51 % shooting in 34 MPG, compared to Noah who averages 10.9 PPG/9.3 RPG/2.4 APG/1.9 BPK on 58 % shooting in 30 MPG. The points don’t mean much since neither are here for their scoring, but notice that when they’ve faced off together Camby has significantly rebounded better and blocked more shots. Even in his older age, the last 4 games (two years) they’ve matched up Camby has still hung with Noah on 8.8 PPG/14.0 RPG/2.5 BPG on 41 %, compared to Noah’s 10 PPG/10.5 RPG/1.3 BPG on 50% shooting. We feel that even though Camby is older than Noah, with the way he actually matches up better with Noah in the type of role both players have for our teams, that we have a slight advantage here. The bench players in Miller/Diop vs Wallace and Elson are basically a wash. Miller is no longer the offensive player he once was, the same way Wallace isn’t the defensive player he once was. Diop and Elson are third stringers I can’t speak for him, but Diop won’t play much in this series if at all unless there is foul trouble.

Power Forward: Dirk Nowtizki/Brad Miller vs Carlos Boozer/Dejaun Blair- Another advantage for the Nets here. Current finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki vs Carlos Boozer. I bet the Bulls miss having Gibson here. There is absolutely no way that Carlos Boozer will be able to guard Dirk. None what so ever. If guys who are actually good defenders like Ibaka, Batum, Gasol, Wallace, Haslem, Bosh couldn’t guard Dirk these past playoffs..Then there will be no reason that Boozer will be able to handle him. In fact out of all the advantages, this is probably the biggest one. Dirk averages 27.2 PPG/8.5 RPG/2.8 APG on 51% shooting in 38 minutes compared to Boozers 18.2 PPG/8.0 RPG/3.0 APG on 56% shooting in 32 minutes. While Boozer does shoot better %, he is getting outscored by 9 PPG.

The points don’t mean much since neither are here for their scoring, but notice that when they’ve faced off together Camby has significantly rebounded better and blocked more shots. Even in his older age, the last 4 games (two years) they’ve matched up Camby has still hung with Noah on 8.8 PPG/14.0 RPG/2.5 BPG on 41 %, compared to Noah’s 10 PPG/10.5 RPG/1.3 BPG on 50% shooting.

Diop and Elson are third stringers I can’t speak for him, but Diop won’t play much in this series if at all unless there is foul trouble.

On offense: Our offense will be pretty basic, but at the same time very deadly. We plan on doing pick and roll, pick and roll, and you guessed it…pick and roll. Or in this case pick and pop with Dirk. Even though Jack is our PG, Wade is going to be the main play maker here. A pick and pop with Dirk will be deadly…how will the Bulls defend it? We have Wade attacking and getting into the paint, or if they sag under the screen he will have a wide open mid range jumper which is money. If they decide to trap Wade he can just kick it to a wide open Dirk who is the best shooting big man in the NBA. If they can take that away we still will have Jack spotting up for an open 3, or AK47 doing what he does best and cutting to the basket for a dunk off of Wade’s penetration. We will also of course mix it up a little bit with isolation plays for Dirk and Wade since they are two of the best 1 on 1 players in the NBA, specially with guys that can’t guard them. Substitution wise we will always have one of Dirk or Wade on the floor at all times. Neither will be off the court at any time unless there was a blowout: Our offense will be pretty basic, but at the same time very deadly.

Substitution wise we will always have one of Dirk or Wade on the floor at all times. Neither will be off the court at any time unless there was a blowout.

Defense: We don’t want Rose exploding on us, so our main defense against the Bulls is going to trap Rose every time there is a pick and roll situation and make someone else beat us whether its Boozer, Salmons, or Granger. While they are respectable shooters, we would much rather them taking a shot or going 1 on 1 against our above average defenders then potentially having Rose getting into the lane and getting our bigs into foul trouble. If Rose is going to beat us he will have to go 1 on 1 which will just take shots away from the others. We also plan on throwing different looks at Rose to mix it up. Jack, Wade, and AK47 will all spend some time on him. Once more, that if Rose does get into the paint he will have to worry about Camby, Kirilenko, and even Wade who are some of the best weak side defenders for their positions. If Rose gets his he will have to work at it, and it definitely won’t be easy.

Summary: This Chicago Bulls team is very talented offensively, no question about that. However we feel we match up with them perfectly. Their weakest defenders (Terry and Boozer) are our strong points in Wade and Dirk. They have absolutely no one to cover them. And while it may seem that Rose and Stuckey would crush Jack/Bayless…just check the head to head matchups I’ve posted where they have played a good amount of minutes like they would for our team. The numbers don’t lie, and the advantages we have with Dirk and Wade are stronger then Rose and Granger. We also feel we have the advantage at the Center spot. Once again Camby may not be better overall then Noah, but for our two teams and the way they have matched up against each other Camby would win this battle again. The Bulls have the advantage on the bench, but again with the matchups and stats I’ve posted, our bench won’t get blown away. Terry is essentially a starter and will play starter minutes which leaves Salmons who’s not as good as Terry there. Also were not sure if all the players will get their fair amount of shots to be effective. Rose and Granger are both used to be #1 options, and having the ball in their hand..how are they going to complement each other. Then you have Boozer and Terry as well who if aren’t getting any shots are pretty useless since both are poor defenders. We also feel that seeing as they traded pretty much all their best defenders that made them such a good defensive team, they will have a hard time stopping us since we have two of the best scorers in the NBA who are probably the best compliment to each other out of any team left along with a couple guys who aren’t slouches on offense.

I was torn coming in I was 60-49 towards Chi town. Chicago is the better all around team but Wade + Dirk is fierce. I don't trust Noah on Dirk. because if that happens you're telling me Boozer is the only guy defending the paint against an aggressive Wade?

And since Terry is playing most of the game and they want Granger to guard Wade that means Terry is playing AK. Terry is a Maverick and a lights out shooter. But he is 6'2 180, AK is 6'9 225.

Also yes writeups matter. New Jersey spent significantly more time finding the holes in the opposition and it easily swayed my vote.

At first I was going to vote for the Nets, complement their offense with good defense. While the other team has many scorers (not the most efficient we know) and no defense. After reading the write-ups, my vote remains the same. Haha!

This Bulls write up is so weak. This should be one sided for Dirk and Wade

Regardless of the writeup (which I won't read because I refuse to read novels electronically), the Nets are a better team and they matchup incredibly well with the Bulls. If I'm the Nets, the best thing about this matchup is that you can put Wade on Rose in the fourth quarter when you really need to shut him down and Jack on Salmons/Terry and you won't miss a beat. That and the fact that Dirk will regularly abuse Boozer away from the basket and/or driving to the rim.

Chicago's depth and offensive weaponry accounts for something, but I think this is where experience comes into play and the Nets have a ton of it. I'm taking the Nets in five.

I think Joshtd1 should actually be disqualified for trying to trick the casual voter. If you have noticed he just simply copied and pasted the entire PF and C paragraphs and pasted right after them. Giving the illusion of having a longer write-up. This I believe is a plan to con people. As you can already see people are saying how awesome and long his write up is. You can see for yourself. The last four paragraphs on his player analysis. There are two PF parts which are exactly the same and there are two C parts which are exactly the same. I think that this guy is trying to hide but I can see through his genius evil scheme.

Disqualification just won't cut it here. Attractive as he is, Josh has a history of inexcusable trickery on this site and in the real world. His feeble attempts to use his superior sex appeal and expertise in word processing spaces to gain an unfair advantage over his opponents have run their course.

Bulls have no defense and too much offense. There's only so many shots available each game.

I would have preferred to see the Nets have an experienced PG on the roster. Just doesn't seem that a team with no experience at the PG position could win a NBA Championship?

Still my vote is with the Nets.

Bulls have no defense. Wade and Dirk would absolutely dominate this series. Nets in 6.

Super.

Just wondering, is coaching considered in these?

To be honest I don't think its ever really been talked about. I mean I guess maybe techincally it could be, but at the same time I think us "GM's" are kind of the coaches as well since we have to decide who starts, closes, minutes, etc.

Why did the Bulls mention Orlando in they're writeup :laugh2:

Haha **** did i really? I mentioned in the lounge that I'm on vacation and BN1F is in Greece so we couldn't do a proper write-up. I had to make one up today on my phone so I used our Orlando one as a base and must've missed changing it.

I was hoping the write-ups wouldn't have aa big of an impact but oh well, we did the best we could given our situation. We'll see how voting turns out, good luck to the Nets!

The Bulls ripped apart that sexy defense they started with, and turned it into a bunch of offense, that wouldn't even work well together. Nets win. Josh clearly did his research, where as the Bulls just wanted you to look at their big names.

I actually think that Bulls lineup would work fine. Rose-Granger-Boozer-Noah is an outstanding core with a bright future. Terry is the guy who would have to sacrifice shots, but I honestly think it would work.

That doesn't mean I think they win this series.

I like the latter better, especially since coaches usually put out a lineup that reflects them. If you will do it, it makes them sort of futile.

Wade and Dirk together is just too nasty.
