PISTONS 102 ... LAKERS 93 37-5!!!!!!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOO!!

This one wasn't as close as the score indicates...think the PISTONS fell asleep trying to keep energy against these stiffs...Geez...Kwame Brown....7' tall, athletic....and a NON-player....2 pts...and 5 rebs......for a guy that size?? umm maybe that's why Washington didn't keep him??? could be he shoulda gone to college and worked on actually having game.
Kobe shot the ball pretty well....and made some really tough Js with guys on him....and earned most of his 39 pts...but the way fouls are being called...he may score 150 some day against a weaker team....you give him a dirty look..and he heads to the free throw line...the NBA and media are determined to try to make him in to the next Michael Jordan...and one man 'showtime' but who really wants to see a guy get a bunch of pts...in what amounts to meaning less garbage time? HEY DAVID STERN/MEDIA why not start an all KOBE TV channel w/ all 24 hrs of nothing but KOBE/KOBE/KOBE......and get it over with....the guy is a good player....but not THAT damned good....and this just in.....IT'S A TEAM!!!! SPORT!!!!!!
Oh well.....LA is always the media dumplings...so no real news there...but it's starting to border on a cult worship status.....what the hell will happen if they ever do get to the championship level....
And how about Ron 'cool and level headed' Artest....how long before he blows up again in Sacramento...?? any bets?? shame, because he has game..defense and offense...and could be the marquee player he wants to be IF he'd shut up and play....
So at about the 1/2 way point it shapes up as Detroit/San Antonio/Dallas/Phoenix...and then down a notch to Miami...the east looks to have only 1 beast..if things stay this way....
well stay tuned hoopsters.....

Well, it looks like the Chicago Bulls will face the Motown Pistons in the playoffs. I don't expect my Bulls to get far, but at least they made in.. Mebbe and upset in the making....right?! Not likely...*LMAO* I think the Pistons will win the championship against the Spurs. I'll say in 6.

Inside The Nba Playoff Edition

OK Hoopsters, the playoffs are set, and Here's how I see the first round going, and why...

Eastern Conference

(1)DETROIT vs. (8)Chicago
Regular season series: (Detroit won 4-0)
Kudos to the Bulls for making the playoffs! as far as this series, anybody seen Michael and Scotty? The Bulls will win one game, and play a scrappy, physical type of game, but this matchup is like a Ferrari vs. a '53 Plymouth at Indianapolis!


(2)MIAMI vs. (7)Milwaukee
(Miami won 3-1)
The Heat will win this one, but it won't be easy. Their bench, with all those guys named Jones, is gone....and Shaq/Alonzo are getting old, but D. Wade will not let them lose this series....and he's become one of the top 5 in the game today...but Michael Redd is pretty damned good too. Figure the HEAT in 6

(3)NEW JERSEY vs. (6)Indiana
(Indiana won 2-1)
Since New Jersey's been hot lately, this looks like a mismatch. But Indiana has a tendency to play scrappy, and not give up. And Jason Kidd only seems to be able to shoot against Detroit, but with him, Vince, and Jefferson, they have more overall talent than Indiana (less Artest). But if Peja can shoot well, and Jermaine O'Neal controls the boards, this one will be an upset, but I see New Jersey in 6 or 7.


(4)CLEVELAND vs. (5)Washington
(Washington won 3-1)
LeBron will be (obviously) the dominant player in this one....and Gilbert Arenas will shoot more than Bonnie and Clyde Barrow, but it won't be enough. Cleveland is the better overall team....but does lack playoff experience. Cleveland in 6


WESTERN CONFERENCE
(1)SAN ANTONIO vs. (8)Sacramento
(San Antonio won 2-1)
San Antonio is a funny team to watch...nobody appears to be playing all that well, but they very seldom lose! Why? best defense in the West, and nice inside/outside game with Duncan and Ginobili/Parker/Horry/etc...and they added Finley too, who will play BETTER in the playoffs.....SA in 4

(2)PHOENIX vs. (7)Los Angeles
(Phoenix won 3-1)
Hmm Kobe vs. the world....sorry media center darling, it isn't enough to beat the Suns, a much better overall team. And though I haven't heard his name as an MVP candidate, Shawn Marion has stepped up BIG time in the absence of Amare. Nash will control this one...though a weak defender, the boys got skills...the Lakers need to add 2 or 3 REAL NBA type players....or Bryant should sue for non support....SUNS in 5

(3)DENVER vs. (6)Los Angeles
(Los Angeles won 3-1)
Hmm Carmelo vs. Elton Brand.....(hey Bulls..where would you be w/ him??) This shakes out as scoring vs. rebounding and defense...and I see the Clippers winning in 6 ...UPSET special.


(4)DALLAS vs. (5)Memphis
(Dallas won 3-1)
Even though Nowitzke is a GREAT scorer, he's WAY too soft for a 7 footer..and can be knocked off his game with physical play...and when things go bad, he has a tendency to blame teammates (always good for morale) but other than Gasol, the Grizzlies should mostly be in the CBA...so Dallas, with GREAT coaching by Avery Johnson (hey Mavs..there's this phase of the game called defense..and he has them playing it) will prevail in 4 or 5 .

I will update and make predictions as the playoffs go on....but overall, it's DEJA VU BABY!!!! w/ the Pistons and the Spurs emerging again....but THIS time (referees allowing people to at least look at Parker/Ginobili w/o fouls) Detroit will win in 6....if called closely by the zebras, Detroit will win in 7....
Home Court advantage is no joke this time of year....

And now the Bulls might be in the 5th seed? How did that happen?

GO BULLS!

One Game Down.....and Jive So Far

Eastern Conference

(1)DETROIT vs. (8) Milwaukee
Nice job, BUCKS choking away a fifth seed and winding up 8th...this isn't like cross country...where low score wins!
Mike Redd is for real and will score...but this matchup is like like Green Berets against boy scouts...Detroit will win easily...4-0 or at worst 4-1.....
Game one shows the value of team defense...Detroit 92...Bucks 74....Hey Bogut....where the hell did you get those thigh length black socks??? Rasheed shows why he's the unguardable player agianst these guys....inside/outside combo too much..and Michael Redd.....better show more or you'll wind up with your pic on milk cartons!!

(2)MIAMI vs. (7)Chicago
The Heat will win this one, but it won't be easy. Their bench, with all those guys named Jones, is gone....and Shaq/Alonzo are getting old, but D. Wade will not let them lose this series....and he's become one of the top 5 in the game today...BUT the BULLS are hot, and are a good perimeter shooting team, which MIAMI has trouble defending against..and that's the BULLS Game.. Figure the HEAT in 6....and a LOT closer than many expect. If Shaq is hurt, the BULLS could win in 6 or 7..

Heat 111, Bulls 106....getting nervous Miami fans? you won game one...but as predicted it was FAR from easy...and with a few breaks the Bulls could have won....their hustle and young legs will pay off with a long series here...

(3)NEW JERSEY vs. (6) Indiana
(Indiana won 2-1)
Since New Jersey's been hot lately, this looks like a mismatch. But Indiana has a tendency to play scrappy, and not give up. And Jason Kidd only seems to be able to shoot against Detroit, but with him, Vince, and Jefferson, they have more overall talent than Indiana (less Artest). But if Peja can shoot well, and Jermaine O'Neal controls the boards, this one will be an upset, but I see New Jersey in 6 or 7.

Indiana 90.....New Jersey 88.....so Vince Carter takes shooting lessons from that notorious bricklayer Jason Kidd.....Pacers NEVER make things easy on anybody...and could take this series...if another scorer beyond J O'Neal surfaces...Rick Carlisle has gone thru HELL this year, w/ Artest, etc....and should get some thought on coach of the year..but not enough wins

(4)CLEVELAND vs. (5)Washington
(Washington won 3-1)
LeBron will be (obviously) the dominant player in this one....and Gilbert Arenas will shoot more than Bonnie and Clyde Barrow, but it won't be enough. Cleveland is the better overall team....but does lack playoff experience. Cleveland in 5 or 6

Cavs 97..Wiz 86.....Hmmm did I call this one? LOL....LeBron Dominated!!! he may wind up the next Michael Jordan...and actuallyhas MORE skills at an earlier age then even MJ did.....if he stays healthy and hard working, he will re-write the record books in the NBA...


WESTERN CONFERENCE
(1)SAN ANTONIO vs. (8)Sacramento
(San Antonio won 2-1)
San Antonio is a funny team to watch...nobody appears to be playing all that well, but they very seldom lose! Why? best defense in the West, and nice inside/outside game with Duncan and Ginobili/Parker/Horry/etc...and they added Finley too, who will play BETTER in the playoffs.....SA in 4 the KINGS are really court jesters...against SA.

Total domination as expected 122-88 boring after about 5 minutes...put a fork in the Kings they're outta here....

(2)PHOENIX vs. (7)Los Angeles
(Phoenix won 3-1)
Hmm Kobe vs. the world....sorry media center darling, it isn't enough to beat the Suns, a much better overall team. And though I haven't heard his name as an MVP candidate, Shawn Marion has stepped up BIG time in the absence of Amare. Nash will control this one...though a weak defender, the boys got skills...the Lakers need to add 2 or 3 REAL NBA type players....or Bryant should sue for non support....SUNS in 5

Hmmm Suns played only fair...and still won 107-102...and surprise...everybody else on LA played better than expected...except superman!!! Kobe will shoot a LOT more....now, but it won't help...the Lakers are history...imagine some people preeicted they'd make the finals! even the USA today newspaper!!! jeezus some journalists!

(3)DENVER vs. (6)Los Angeles
(Clippers 89...Nuggets 87...Hmm Carmelo vs. Elton Brand.....(hey Bulls..where would you be w/ him??) This shakes out as scoring vs. rebounding and defense...and I see the Clippers winning in 6 ...UPSET special.

One down and three to go....Carmelo and crew will win one or two..but WILL lose this series....to the superior defense and rebounding team


(4)DALLAS vs. (5)Memphis
(Dallas won 3-1)
Even though Nowitzke is a GREAT scorer, he's WAY too soft for a 7 footer..and can be knocked off his game with physical play...and when things go bad, he has a tendency to blame teammates (always good for morale) but other than Gasol, the Grizzlies should mostly be in the CBA...so Dallas, with GREAT coaching by Avery Johnson (hey Mavs..there's this phase of the game called defense..and he has them playing it) will prevail in 4 or 5 .

This one's still going on....but looks like a Mavs win...but both teams look REAL sloppy....and Pau Gasol is missing in action..but Dallas will win even if Mark Cuban has to suit up

I will update and make predictions as the playoffs go on....but overall, it's DEJA VU BABY!!!! w/ the Pistons and the Spurs emerging again....but THIS time (referees allowing people to at least look at Parker/Ginobili w/o fouls) Detroit will win in 6....if called closely by the zebras, Detroit will win in 7....
Home Court advantage is no joke this time of year....

I was happy the Lakers got beat. I can't stand Kobe. Never have, never will.

The Bulls will come back next game.

Not A Love Shaq!

(2)MIAMI vs. (7)Chicago
The Heat will win this one, but it won't be easy. Their bench, with all those guys named Jones, is gone....and Shaq/Alonzo are getting old, but D. Wade will not let them lose this series....and he's become one of the top 5 in the game today...BUT the BULLS are hot, and are a good perimeter shooting team, which MIAMI has trouble defending against..and that's the BULLS Game.. Figure the HEAT in 6....and a LOT closer than many expect. If Shaq is hurt, the BULLS could win in 6 or 7..

Heat 111, Bulls 106....getting nervous Miami fans? you won game one...but as predicted it was FAR from easy...and with a few breaks the Bulls could have won....their hustle and young legs will pay off with a long series here...

BULLS 109 HEAT 90!
A Blowout! and Shaq has more turnovers than points or rebounds....without an inside defensive game, the Bulls guards Hinrich and Gordon were able to drive the lane...and add scoring in the paint to their 3 point shooting attack...
Then, when the game gets out of hand, a goon is sent in to attack Hinrich...memo to Pat Riley....yeah, that's sportsmanship!!! nobody minds,and everbody expects contact as part of the game, but mugging somebody??? and from behind? a cheap shot....and NOT within the confines of the game....plus, the Bulls will probably be glad to mix it up, if that's how you want it..
Memo to Bill Walton..still think the rest of the Eastern conference should just annoint Miami the champions? there's this team called the Pistons...duhhhh..
Oh yeah..and Pacers up 2-1 on NJ.....Jermaine O'Neal is a STUD..and one of the best low post players in the NBA today....and the Pacers NEVER giv eup without a battle...
memo to Ron Artest...and who should be the Pacers marquee player? wasn't that you evicted when your team needed you most? This Just In..it's a TEAM sport!!!!!!! you are wasting a LOT of talent with your headgames....
NDNSoldierboy......one for the ages for the young BULLS wooohooooooooo!!!

Inside The Nba Second Round...playoffs..not Brought To You By Hyundai!

So hoopsters, the matchups are set for round two...
Kudos to the Suns for coming back from 3-1 against the Lakers...
it's time for Dyan Cannon, Jack Nicholson, Snoop Dog, and the rest of the Lakerites to face reality..their team sucks! Kobe is a great player, but where was he in the second half? 3 shots?? bizarre...
Anyway, on to round two...:
Eastern Conference:

Detroit Pistons vs. Cleveland Cavaliers: Team MOTOWN against LeBron and the mistake on the lake crew! Other than the chance to see the next great one, WE WILL ALL BE WITNESSES! but to an old fashioned *** kicking...Detroit has too much more at every position....and nobody on the Cavs can deal w/ the many matchups that Detroit offers. LeBron will be fun to watch...but Detroit will win in 5..or 6 if they get overconfident...

New Jersey and Miami Heat: Bulls gave Miami fits w/ outside shooting, and constant motion and hustle. But the NETS aren't as young, or as good a 3 point shooting team. Vince Carter has scored a LOT so far, but has a history of coming up short at crunch time. Nobody on NJ canhandle Shaq, or D Wade, and J Kidd can only shoot against Detroit....so look for the Heat to prevail in 6....

Western Conference:

San Antonio Spurs vs. Dallas Mavericks: These aren't the 'doughnut' Mavericks (soft, and hole in the middle) of yesteryear, and Avery has them playing Defense...so this matchup is the primo
One so far this year...and the true Western Conference finals. This will be a clsoe fought series, but the Spurs will win in 6 or 7, banking on their playoff experience..and as usual Duncan and Ginobili/Parker

Phoenix Suns Vs. LA Clippers: The key to this one is who will control the tempo.....If allowed to run at will...nobody can beat the Suns, but the Clippers will probably do as the Lakers did, and play physical, and 1/2 court style featuring and inside game. And they have a LOT more talent than the Lakers, so they canmake that work....I see the Clippers winning in 6 or 7
