NBA Playoff Chatter
« on: April 09, 2018, 04:30:41 PM »
Same as NHL thread, all NBA action can be discussed here.

Can't really talk matchups just yet with the crazy amount of possibilities still remaining. If OKC somehow misses the playoffs all together it will be a huge shocker (Western conference has been crazier than ever this year).

In the east, I really hope Raps don't end up playing Wizards as it will be hard to cheer for them while also wanting Wall/Beal to advance. Despite the poor record since Wall's return I actually like Wizards to make some noise and if they do end up playing Raps I would not be totally shocked to see them win, though ideally they finish 7th and play a banged up Boston team (which is still not an easy out).

Finals Prediction: Rockets over Cavs in 7

:DEN-NBA: vs :MIN-NBA: Wed to decide final spot should be a great game to watch. Seedings still in flux with 2 days to go.

Lebron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Russell Westbrook your top performers for round 1. No real surprise here but too bad only Lebron is advancing (and what could have easily turned out to be his 1st ever 1st round exit).

2nd round had some exciting games but really all 4 teams advanced in dominating fashion not a single game 6. Raps getting swept was a shocker, though I never expected them to win the series- Lebron has their number every year.

Davis, Green and Lebron accumulated bonus points

Yeah you were the front runner so far but had a tough round losing everyone but Stamkos. Last 2 sounds should still be interesting, we have WillyWonka as a darkhorse if we get Rockets/Celtics finals

No surprise GS wins again, had Paul not been injured a few games in the last series could have been different story. Lebron had arguably the best playoff performance ever in terms of stats, and with all the bonus points he got me he was the MVP of our league (Ovechkin is very close 2nd). I'd say there is a good chance Lebron leave CLE again.

Bonuses and all games are now calculated and with less than 3 points separating 1st and 2nd I will need to review before officially announcing the champ. Stay tuned for 1 last PM.

The NBA is kind of a joke league at the moment... 4 straight years of the same teams in the finals? Not gonna lie, I didn't watch a single minute of the series, and from the ratings put out to the public, I wasn't the only one!

It'll be hilarious when Lebron leaves CLE again this summer, to see them all burn his jersey again. Silly people.

Thoughts on where Lebron will sign this off-season....? Now there's something that's at least interesting in terms of the NBA, haha.

  • Jonathan: That is an interesting trade. Dhop for David Johnson and pick #40. You'd rather have the top WR than RB, but that is a high pick to compensate.

    March 20, 2020, 11:27:26 AM
  • Vik: Could be moot point either way depending what happens. I feel if they do resume most likely would pretty much go right into real life playoffs
    March 20, 2020, 11:28:09 AM

    March 20, 2020, 05:32:18 PM
  • Vik: Yea unfortunately that's most likely scenario. I mean if by some miracle NBA resumes with full or close to full reamining schedule we are good, but even getting real life playoffs seems less likely each day
