SRock, your Spurs kicked ass all season. I doubted them. I was wrong.

Me too. As a Mavs fan I have to hate the Spurs but Pop is probably the best coach in the NBA over the last 15 years, and yes I know that Phil Jackson coached then too. If Pop and Duncan were in any other market they'd be lauded over by everyone. At least for me, I can sit back and still enjoy the Mavs singular magical run from last year so they lose in the first round.

So happy for my spurs. Glad to see they are getting some respect. I got an email the other day from another .org-er who has become somewhat of a convert. Hopefully we have a good post season. I don't think another title is completely out of the question.

Terrible. I was really looking forward to the East finals.

I think they'll still make it to the conference finals. If the Heat win this year now I'll be so grossed out.

Yeah, Chicago was my hope to stop the Heat from reaching the Finals. Did anyone see the amount of shameless flopping Lebron pulled against the Knicks? It's disgusting that the "best player on the planet" has to resort to that kind of flopping. I fear a Lakers/Heat finals and then who do I root for?

Words cannot express my sadness for the "loss" of Derek Rose, he's not like LeBron or Kobe, he's at least a humble kid, a good role model, a hell of an MVP... ugh, it makes my stomach hurt to think that he's out for 6 to 9 months, makes it hurt even more to think that everyone seemed to be just waiting for this to happen :-(

We'll make it past the first round and go down in the second... our bench is deep, but not LeBron/Wade or Kobe deep :-/ sad, sad, saddd..

Also, that pacers / heat game was really good. This series has been really close. I'd love to see an upset there.

OKC is playing awesome. Swept the defending champs and now stomping the Lakers. I wouldn't be surprised to see a sweep here.

No way! LA has too much heart. I think they will take one game...

I thought the Lakers would beat OKC and I still think they should but they won't. Bynum and Gasol should both have 25 points and 20 rebounds every game because OKC has no one to match up with them down low. But the Lakers have no bench and those guys are so inconsistent that they won't win series. I don't think it matters though because it looks like the Spurs are going make out of the west.

I would love to see the Pacers beat the Heat though they have their built in excuse with no Chris Bosh but I don't care. I don't want Lebron to ever win a title. What a bitch; he flops too damn much to be called the best player; it's a joke. I loved seeing Lebron choke once again last night. And on a side note, I despise ESPN; they are destroying sports.

I think I agree with every goddamn word of that post. Nicely said. ESPN are totally ruining sports. They aren't just covering it, they are starting to dictate it, which is a pretty awful conflict of interests...
