Celtics vs. anyone if they don't trade their core.

Regardless of age, 3 HOF'ers plus Rondo = Scary come playoff time for any playoff team.

That being said, we will probably still lose to most teams in the playoffs :)

New YOrk and Denver are both going to be intriguing matchups in their respective conferences.

New York is likely getting no higher than the 6 seed...meaning they are getting the likes of the Bulls, Heat, Pacers, or 76ers. All of those teams would provide a great 1st rd series.

In the West, when Denver has been completely healthy, they were playing really well. THey are also likely to be a 6-8 seed and could really give OKC or SA a real battle in that first rd. OKC vs Denver would be like one of thse old school ABA 140-138 type scores.

only half way through the season you don't even know the match up yet.
the 3rd - 8th seed in east only separated by 6 games.
the 5th to 12th seed in west only separated by 5 games

but to your question bulls and celtics was the best first round series ever in 2009 playoffs

I am getting so sick and tired reporting these ******** posters that basically copy and paste random words in the sentence of a previous post.

Wolves-Clippers.

Before I get blasted, the Wolves are tied with the easiest strength of schedule left with the Grizz and Spurs, so gaining a couple of spots isn't impossible, but unlikely.

Bulls vs. Celtics and Knicks vs. Heat would draw insane ratings! I won't touch the West things change so fast

Exactly what Hawk said. Clippers vs Timberwolves. Griffen vs Love.

I don't see this series happening unless the Wolves can get in the 7th spot as the Clippers would need a 2nd seed for that to happen as well.
