LOL

I have always been a New Knicks fan, only reason I even watched the Cavs was because of LeBron, I had to root for an Ohio boy playing for his "hometown" team...

Should see my card collection of Knick greats...Patrick Ewing, John Starks, Walt Frazier, Willis Reed, Bill Bradley, Earl the Pearl, Charles Oakley, Doc Rivers, Greg Anthony.....Prolly 500 cards of just these players... cool.gif

and i was wrong. we swept ya' and you didn't get the 1 win i predicted. lol those cards should be good to put in your bike and watch them make noises as your spokes go around. biggrin.gif

Games 1-4 just p***ed me off. But Game 5 showed me that they still do have it in them. I think they, unfortunately, overlooked Indiana a bit the first 4 games before finally deciding enough is enough and finishing it off.

Also, despite their record, Indiana wasn't terrible. A list of teams they beat during the regular season:

Denver, Miami(IN Miami), the Lakers(IN LA), New Orleans, Dallas, Portland, New York(twice, once IN NY), Chicago, Boston, Atlanta. They were just inconsistent, which comes with being a young team without any stars. I think they'll be competitive here in the near future, although they'll never challenge for the East with Chicago, Miami, and New York there.

Anyway, I think the Bulls will be much more focused in round 2, and I don't think Orlando or Atlanta will give them much trouble. Do they have enough to beat Miami or Boston? We'll have to see.

Indiana went 28-18 when they fired their coach. In fact, I believe Indy was better then Philly when the regular season ended. How much you win a game in the playoffs mean nothing. Boozer game them zero and they still won in 5 games.

They will handle Atlanta in 5 games. I rather play Boston then the prima-donna Heat. But they could lose to either if Boozer does not wake up.

They beat a old Spurs team, that dominated the regular season, and a pretty good OKC team with 2 top stars in the league, but im not completely sold yet...1 more game like they had the other night, they will have me believing...

The time has come now that the Bulls finally realized that all year they overachieved and they were not that great of a team...If Rose dont score 40 a game and attack, they will not win this series...

Any more believers in Memphis yet?? I just dont know what to think...they should have lost that game the other day, but the Thunder looked terrible and Westbrook threw shot after shot up and Durant touched the ball maybe once in final 5 minutes...

I believe that they can win the series against the Thunder, but after watching the Mavs destroy the Lakers, I have to go with the Mavs to win the West, regardless of who they're playing in the Conference Finals.

Bulls win in 6, simply because the Hawks still aren't actually that good.


Could be in trouble against Miami or Boston if the offense is still 4 guy standing around watching Rose do all the work though.

I'm starting to buy into this Grizzlies team. After losing game 4 in triple OT and then getting blown out in game 5, I thought their was li
ttle chance that they would find a way to win game 6. Yes, Durant had a horrible game, but you have to give credit to guys like Tony Allen and Battier for finding a way to slow him down. I was also impressed with the way Randolph handled himself after picking up that early technical. Usually he has trouble keeping his cool when things go wrong, but he did a good job of staying out of trouble for the rest of the game.

Also, it's hard to believe that the Grizzlies are doing this without Rudy *****.

Game 1 sure was fun.

Bulls in 6, unless Lebron and Wade both go super human the rest of the series. We're talking both going to Jordan like levels and carrying the Heat. Bulls are just too good on defense and have too much size, strength, and depth in the front court.

If Wade and Lebron are below average, Bulls in 5.

I defently agree that in order for the Heat to win, both Lebron and Wade need to be on. The Heat got a major boost last night from Haslem. If Haslem can continue to play at this level, then I'm picking the Heat in 6. I truly believe Haslem is the piece that this team is missing. Having him back means less playing time for Anthony and Magloire, and after watching these two play throughout the playoffs, the more time spent on the bench for them, the better off the Heat will be. If Haslem can not play at the high level that he did last night, then I think the series will go to 7 games, and I'd take the Bulls at home.

Miami is making me eat my words, that's for sure. They've been able to be physical and play a slugfest the last 2 times out very well.

That said, I still just feel like the Bulls are in control. The defense, intensity, and physicality is there. They just can't hit a shot to save their lives right now. A big part of that is Miami's defense, but they're missing some wide open ones as well. If a few more of those start falling, they win games again.

I'm still saying Bulls in 6, but that's all based on winning tonight. If they lose tonight, I say in 7. But Miami is playing their style well.

Winner of game 4 wins the series. Either Bulls in 7 or Heat in 6. As a Bulls fan I'm disgusted yet excited, because both games have been a lot closer than the score shows, even though we played absolutely horrible offensive games. Just a couple of adjustments and we're back in the series. That said, Thibs has been slow to adjust all season, using the "what we've done has worked 62 times already, no need to change it now" approach. Well it's time for changes, because it's no longer working. The Heat did what great teams do and adjusted to us. Our move, and the decision we make decides the series.

Gotta love watching the Heat go down in...well...flames! smile.gif

Miami will receive a championship sooner or later with the ill-gotten gains of Wade, James, and Bosh, but it was great that they couldn't do it in their first go-round!

Cavs for Mavs!!! Gotta love them Mavaliers! wink.gif
