    Default NBA Playoffs

    Normally, despite the fact that I never played hockey and played basketball, I think the NHL playoffs are generally more exciting. Still, the Bulls-Celts series is fantastic. Of the six games so far, four have gone into overtime, the most in NBA history. There have been seven overtime periods in those four games, the most ever. The Celts are the defending champs, but they're missing Kevin Garnett, who graduated high school in Chicago. The Bulls missed the playoffs last year, but drafted Derrick Rose, who graduated high school in Chicago.

    Even if the Bulls win the series, they aren't going far in the playoffs. But it's been a very entertaining playoff series.

    It was a great series no matter who won. I thought Chicago was going to take it for sure.

    I've heard explanations for the Billups' trade, chief among them being that the Pistons are trying to clear cap space so that they can make a run at LeBron next year when he becomes a free agent, but of all the people I would not have traded on that Pistons team, Billups was the one. This, in turn, worked out fabulously well for the Nuggets.

    I'm not a huge George Karl fan, and I absolutely hate those uni colors, but I like the franchise. I'm relishing the possibility of a Denver-Cleveland finals match-up just to stick it to the networks. I think it would be a phenomenal series.

    Both are very good series so far. I'm just amazed the Nuggets have such difficulties inbounding the ball. And J.R. Smith needs to get his head out of his ass. He's very, very immature. But I'm pulling for the Nuggets.

    I'm not sure what's happened to the Cavaliers.

    The Cavs are just relying too much on LeBron. While he's a great player, it takes more than 1 person for a win. Even if he got 50-60 points per game, that's not enough to win it. Other people need to step up and they haven't.

    It would be nice to see the Nuggets and Magic in the finals since neither has been there in a while.

    The Cavs are relying on LeBron because they don't have another viable offensive option. The Magic has Lewis and Turkoglu; what do the Cavs have beyond James?

    The Nuggets have never been to the Finals, by the by, not in the NBA; only in the final ABA season did the Nuggets make the Finals
