I wasn't impressed with the Lebron team at all. Its a 16 team RD so ofcourse its stacked like all the others but people see Lebron and assume they win.
Any way I went Kittens
You have Marion who has shown he can slow down anybody still. Thabo would give Harden all kinds of trouble, Timmy D would slow down Lopez. Dirk and Zbo would go at it but I think Dirk would do more then ZBO. Having somebody slow down Lebron is huge!I like the Kittens they matchup well here.

Lebron is obviously great an' all, but the rest of his team is going to have some trouble in this match-up:

Steph Curry has faced a plethora of injuries the last couple years and it's uncertain how well he'll hold up against more physical playoff defense. Opposite him, Lawson is playoff tested and could be too much speed for Akron to contain being that Lopez/Randolph aren't going to erase too many shots.

Thabo should be a great cover on Harden since he's played with the Beard for a couple years now and knows his tricks. That's not saying that Curry or Harden won't get looks off of Lebron help, but I think the Jazz Kittens can stay home a bit more because of the frontcourt matchups.

Lopez and Randolph in the post are going to fill the paint and give Lebron less room to attack. The less space that guys have to cover in doubling Lebron means fewer open shots for Curry/Harden. Randolph may give Dirk some trouble when Akron's on offense, but Dirk returns the favors on defense and opens up the floor for Lawson to drive. Duncan can still play D and bank it in.

Faried adds an element I really like in that he is too fast and athletic for Akron. His relentlessness will get extra and easy buckets for quality shooters in Green and Thompson and doesn't take shots away from the dynamic Lou Williams.

Jazz Kittens take this one for me.

Jazz have much better depth, but how do they stop Akron from scoring? Every position for Akron is a guy who can score 20 nightly, with the best player in the world leading them.

Timmy can def slow Lopez down,
Marion IMO has the abiliy to make i harder for Lebron
Dirk and Zbo even out scoring wise IMO with Dirk winning that matchup
Lawson and Curry even out as well IMO both are scoring.
Thabo is a great defender as well, I just think they matchup great with them IMO.

So if Curry / Lawson and Z-Bo / Dirk even out scoring wise, Thabo and Marion still aren't coming close to the offensive production of Harden / LeBron even if they slightly slowed them down. Duncan wouldn't be able to reproduce all of those lost points, and who knows at this point in careers, Brook Lopez might be too much offensively for him. It's Akron in my opinion definitely.

Dirk will score more then ZBo. Marion has shown he can slow down the best offensive Sfs in the game and Thabo makes it tough on everyone. Timmy can go off on Lopez. Im not saying for sure Kittens but they have a good matchup vs them.

Dirk is a top 10 player in this game. How is he not a monster :facepalm:

Dirk outside Duncan inside should be almsot unstoppable.
