i hope this was sarcasm...


Did you notice how I included Toronto in there? :-b


Boston and Detroit could win the finals. Everyone else in the conference is a joke.

I still don't see Boston making the finals. They haven't been very impressive for a pretty long time now, even when KG was still in the lineup. Detroit, Cleveland (LeBron in particular can pretty much win any game he wants anytime), and Toronto can beat them.

What does them not being very impressive even mean? They've won 7 of their last 8, without KG, including wins vs. Dallas and San Antonio. All the games they've lost to Detroit, Cleveland, and Toronto came down to the very end and could have easily gone either way. Of course Detroit, Cleveland, and Toronto can beat them. No team is unbeatable, but in a 7 game series, I'm putting my money on Boston.

Of course Boston isn't a lock for the finals, and could lose early in the playoffs, just like the Mavs lost to Golden State last year. But the Celtics are a very good basketball team. They are undefeated against the West, while no other East team (besides the Pistons) would even make the Playoffs in west.

They are playing less impressive basketball in the fact that they are continually playing competitive games agaisnt some very poor teams, something they weren't really doing earlier in the season, and their margin of victory has dropped considerably since the beginning of the year. I still think they are one of the best teams in the league, but in the playoffs, I'll put my money on Detroit coming out of the East.

The Mavs should be pretty dirty now that they have Kidd. For once, I am really looking forward to the NBA playoffs.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.
