well not in miami beach florida
Today Cleveland @ Detroit
Tomorrow Dallas @ San Antonio, LA Clippers @ Phoenix
so 80% of the time the home team wins that would leave
Detroit vs Miami, San Antonio vs Phoenix
I don’t exactly care who makes it all the way but I’d rather not see a rematch of last years Detroit vs San Antonio matchup. Either way, I will of course be watching the rest of the playoffs and the finals despite my Lakers not taking part.
I look at it like this:
If Detroit goes to the finals then whatever, I’ll just have something sports-wise to talk about with other people at work.
If Cleveland goes all the way then it will be awesome to see how far LeBron can push it so early in his career. Didn’t it take Jordan something like 5 times to get past Detroit?
Miami in the finals would be fine since D-Wade is like the best player in the league and I’ve always had a kinship with my brother Shaquille.
I’m pulling for the Suns in the West despite how even more awesome they would be to watch with Amare in the middle. Nash is just the man and he deserves his due soon.
The Mavs in the finals would be fine cause Dirk is like Super-man even though he is just another cheesy European player. Plus Cuban puts on a good show.
I’d rather not see the Spurs cause I can pretty much guarantee they will win it and it won’t be exciting. Mr Fundamental Timmy D will stop anybody, Parker will run circles around whoever tries to guard him, and Manu will make Jordanesque plays minus the thundering dunks and the Spurs will win again.
If the Clippers make it I will have a tough time swallowing watching the games. Sam Cassel is just the ugliest player in the league and it’s the Clippers for cripes sake. Brand is a beast however.
So with that being said,
I’m rooting for the Cavs today and the Mavs and Suns tomorrow.
