    The "New" team to beat.

    Which team in the playoffs is now the team to beat? We will not discount the Lakers but in all seriousness they most likely won't advance past the second round.

    I'll have to go with the Mavs

    As of now, it's looking like Dallas or Miami.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    it's ridiculous, a team has a good game and suddenly they're the "team to beat".

    tomorrow it'll be someone else. People are so reactionary.

    Heat.

    If Lakers werent mentally and physically exhausted + dealing with Injurys + Dealing apparently with internal chemistry problems between Pau and either Odom or Kobe ( is not known yet whose wife was the one that started the beef) mavs would be down 3-0.

    Dont expect them to go past Thunder/grizz and they are definetly not wining the finals.

    Are you talking about the Mavs? Because if you are, its definitely not just Game 3 that makes them team to beat by many people.

    I'm not talking about any one team, I'm talking about the reactionary nature of people on this forum and on sports forums in general.

    someone has a good game and its "omg is he top 10?! is he better than [insert great player here]?"

    someone has a bad game "omg he sucks! whats wrong with him?"

    a team has a good game and its "They're the team to beat!"

    last week it was OKC, this week its the Heat and Mavs. Next week it'll be...I don't know...someone else.

    How is that the case? Chicago is not winning the pole...

    I'm not scared at all that the Mavs have handled the Lakers and the Heat have handled the Celtics and that OKc handled the Nuggets and that the Grizzlies handled the Spur.

    they're not the "teams to beat" to me. Any team that my team faces is the "team to beat".

    I agree, Zach Randolph is a perfect example. But this isn't the case in this thread. Not to be a homer, but the HEAT and Mavs are clearly the teams to beat. If you're talking about Chicago, which i think you are, this thread would have gone 18 pages because of angry Bull fans complaining about them not being on the list.
