Every summer, PSD holds a game which mocks that year's NBA offseason. This year, users from the site took the reigns of NBA franchises and had to utilize their skills via draft, trades, and free agency to improve their teams. At the end of the game, GMs voted on how they believed the regular season of this game would shake up. These are the playoffs of PSD's 2013 NBA Mock Offseason.

Please take the time to consider each line up, the match-up itself, and vote on which team you believe would win in a seven game series.

The Heat have homecourt advantage.

I absolutely love the Cavs backcourt. They even have Ray Allen coming off the bench! However, the Heat frontcourt would just manhandle them. On the chance of a hot game by Steph-Ray-Delfino-etc. I'll say Heat in 5.

You must love Cousins.

I think the cavs make it more interesting than the votes show. Curry and cousins would do work but the thing that makes it so close is Lebron doesn't have shooters on his team.

Cavs need another legit scoring option

LeBron has shooters on that team. They might be a little light on experience and proven talent but they can shoot.

I like the real teams much more, but Miami obviously wins this. Though I don't like Ty with Lebron.

The Heat team is meh. They'd win this series pretty much because of having Lebron. I just don't think that team deserves #1 seed.

(First off, I accidently voted for Miami instead of GMs, not that it really matters, but it was an accident.)

LBJ isnt surrounded by shooters? That's quite wrong. Lee is a great 3 shooting Defensive guard, Green lead the Celtics in 3 point shooting last season and postseason, Pek is one of the most efficient players in the league, let alone centers. Lawson is also quite good at scoring, and engineered the leagues best offense last season.

This team is built to go fast and score buckets on buckets on buckets.

I like Miami. Lebron has a number 2 option in Lawson, green is a solid number 3 and pek is a bruiser inside I love the team

They'd be fantastic in transition, agreed, but they would not be a good defensive team in the interior (at all), and they would have some issues with that offense. Ty's not an off the ball guy, and neither is Bron. And obviously nobody can give you the benefit of the doubt with Oden as a backup.

Still, an easy win here with Bron.

Since when have the heat been a good team in the interior?

This team is a race car. it goes fast and scores buckets. LBJ was actually rather effective in off ball plays when I saw him play last season.

Since they got one of the games best PF's? I'm not trying to be malicious, I just think their backcourt, frontcourt and bench were better in reality.

I actually didn't get Ray Allen, Nor Dwyane Wade, nor did I have a amnesty clause like every other team in the mock FYI. It was Bosh and LBJ
