Just saw on ESPN First Take that Garnett may be done for the year. Bye-Bye Boston. Looks like ESPN has already named Cleveland the NBA Champs even Bob Ryan thinks Cleveland has a good shot of winning it all now. Don't count out Orlando though.

Out in the West, This looks like the Lakers all the way. The only team I can see maybe slowing down the Lakers is Portland if that happens. The Lakers play awful in Portland for some reason.


I'm going with the Lakers to win it all, Just don't think Lebron will have enough help to get through the Lakers.

Ouch for Boston, that sucks.

I hope Cleveland crushes Detroit quickly. Orlando definitely gives me worry as the Cavs never seem to have an answer for their inside game. As for the Lakers, I gotta think if Cleveland gets that far at least they'll put up more of a fight than when they got swept by the Spurs.

Time to start the two month slog to the championship!

I was almost ready to buy into that thought until the Cavs dropped their last one at home. The mystique isn't dead, but it's slightly chinked. If the Pistons somehow manage to steal one in Cleveland, that'll plant some seeds of doubt. Especially considering the Lakers won't be intimidated one bit. And why should they be? Until last night, they were the one team that's actually won in Cleveland.

I'm not ready to write off the Celtics just yet. If they can make it to the Conference Finals, they could be getting a Cleveland team that's brutally exhausted from a 7-game grudge match with Dwayne Wade's Heat. Can the Celtics win? I think they could.

They didn't play LeBron at all and rested others. Still almost won in OT.

Yeah, Cleveland emptied the bench on that game and still almost pulled it out. LeBron, Mo, Wallace, and Z did not play and Varejao and West only played the first half of the game. Doesn't say much for the Sixers if you ask me.

Can the Celtics make it that far without Garnett? If so, I'll see your 7-game grudge match with a brutal extended Boston-Orlando series to make that happen.

I absolutely don't think the Lakers will be intimidated, but I also believe the Cavs not named LeBron may play out of their minds to overcome that with a home crowd pulling for them in a Game 7.

It's in poor taste, but the moment I heard about Ainge's heart attack, I pictured him hearing about KG being out for the playoffs and going through some Redd Foxx-esque gyrations about having the big one.

I think a Cleveland-Los Angeles finals is almost inevitable at this point, and I'm suspecting that while LeBron may bring slightly more to the table than Kobe at this point, the Gasol/Bynum/Odom combo brings more than just Mo Williams. Lakers in six.

The lottery gods
gave John Paxson a gift
against all the odds
came Rose to give him a lift.

Everyone knew Derrick Rose had all the skills. Whether he had that extra gear was the question. The one where he puts his team right on his shoulders and wins the game for them.

Question answered.

Pierce can't hit a clutch free throw
shades of 2002
Rose has been Rondo'd
As Celtics take game 2.

Time to break out the old Larry Bird line to K.C. Jones in '88 when they were traveling through Atlanta and came across a 'Rent a Bench' sign, that perhaps KC should take down the number. Can't go far when you are going at most 6 deep the rest of the way.

Bulls win this series in 7
Now that Leon Powe fell
The C's bang their heads
Over a torn ACL


    Leon Powe will join Kevin Garnett on the Boston Celtics' sideline.

    Already without an injured Garnett for possibly the remainder of the playoffs, the Celtics have lost backup forward Powe for the duration because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in his left knee.

    Powe was injured in Boston's 118-115 Game 2 victory over Chicago on Monday. The injury is unrelated to the right knee sprain that sidelined him in March for almost a month.

If it makes you feel good,
OK sucks huge donkey balls
and then Durant will leave that hood
when they finally think they'll climb over that playoff wall.

It was worth a college try. In any event, the saddest thing to me is Diekembe having to end his career this way (sports.espn.go.com). He was so good on and off the court, he deserves a much better ending.

Arrogant? Yeah maybe some of my fellow Boston sports fan are. I think the sports fans in the Northeast section of the USA (Boston, NY, Philly, and even down into Baltimore/DC) have this issue. Then again; considering before this decade we've had so much crap thrown at us due to the failures of our teams, especially regarding the Red Sox, that we're reacting back due to their current success? You reap what you sow.

And also, you can't convince me that there's any group of fans in the 4 major North American sports more arrogant than Montreal Canadiens fans.

Now my try...


Orlando's overrated
I don't get the hype
Ray Allen has grapefruits
Gordon and Rose too
