What are your favorite playoff series between 2000-2012?

For me here are some of mine

For series of good teams and upsets, I'd say Dallas vs Miami in 2011 and 2006, Lakers vs Spurs in 2004, Spurs/Mavs 2006, Pistons/Heat 2005, Twolves/Kings 2004, Rockets/Jazz 2007

2009-10 Lakers/Celtics Finals game 7 was epic.

2009-10 Lakers/Celtics Finals game 7 was epic.

I've never seen two teams try harder defensively than that game. The only reason they started scoring was because they were so tired in the latter stages of the game.

Mavs vs. Spurs

Lakers vs. Kings

Lakers vs. Blazers

Heat vs. Celtics was nice last year

Mavs vs. Kings back in the day was awesome because every game was like 120-125

Celtics vs. Heat 2012
Mavs vs. Spurs 2006
Celtics vs. Lakers 2010
Lakers vs. Kings 2002
Suns vs. Mavs 2006 (went 6 games, but I found it entertaining)
Lakers vs. Suns 2006
Bulls vs. Celtics 2009
Nuggets vs. Lakers 2009

The entire 2006 playoffs was fun. Not just because the Heat won it all, but almost every series after Round 1 was phenomenal.

I gotta say, my favorite series of the past decade is easily the Spurs/Pistons finals match up. Two team-first teams built around defence and sharing the ball. Great coaches, great team players. Great defence. That is what basketball is all about.

The Boston/Chi-town series a couple seasons back was pretty good (09). I thought that first game was AMAZING!!!! And then they go and have three more OT game with one double-OT and one triple-OT? WTF?!?!?! It doesn't get any better than that.

Of course the Lakers Celtics finals were pretty epic too.


But yeah... the 09 Boston-Chi-town series was likely the best series in the last decade. Also the Spurs/Suns series in the WCF in 05 was pretty good even though it was only a 5-game series. The suspensions killed that series... but man... that Suns team was AWESOME!!! If only they had been willing to spend the money to keep them together.

Incorrect. The suspensions happened when those 2 teams met in the 07 Semis, not 05 WCF.

But the celtics bulls series was FIRST round. That makes it less significant. Best first round series possibly ever tho.
Lakers Kings and has got to take home best series of decade.
aand im not biased to say Raptors Sixers falls in the top 10. Came down to a shot with 50 pt performances when both were at there peak popularity. An that AI steal and dunk? Vince hitting 9 threes in a row?? Great stuff

I liked the Celtics/Bulls first round series because there were a lot of overtimes. When there is an overtime in a playoff game, there is a lot of suspense, and I like that.

That Lakers v Celtics game was terrible standard of shooting. Has to be 2nd greatest to watch as a Laker fan, revenge over our arch enemies. Plus it helps for me that 3 friends were watching at my house all cheering for the Celtics :D

Couldn't agree more. Overtimes=suspense=fun.

The Bulls v Celtics couple years back. The only game that was bad in that series was game 7. To make that day worse for me is that the Pac vs Hatton fight is after it. We had a bbq and many people. Disappointing game 7 followed by an early TKO.

lakers vs suns 2010 WCF. Kobe going 34-7-8 on 52/43/88 was amazing.
Lakers vs Nuggets 2009 was great too.

The best one was Lakers vs Kings in '02. You had absolutely everything you could ever want in a 7 game series as a hardcore NBA fan. It doesn't get any better than that.
