My "upset" picks for this round are the Mavs, the Rockets and the Heat. None of which are really very "upset" due to the big bunch of teams stuck in the middle of these seeds. I am only picking the Heat because I still can't imagine the Atlanta Hawks as a playoff team and will surely be wrong on that one when the Hawks sweep. ;-)

Tenth best home record in the league and on a bit of a roll right now. Let's go Hawks!

If that's the ONLY mistake I managed to make, I'll take it. :)

Portland getting the #4 spot is the worst thing that could have happened to the Lakers, especially since the Blazers got placed opposite the annual "one-and-done" Rockets. The Blazers have that magic touch against the Lakers, especially at the Rose Garden, which has to have some kind of voodoo magic spell in place. That series is going seven games and if the Blazers take one in L.A., the local media will have a coronary. I don't like the way this is shaping up at all.

With that in mind, maybe writing off the Spurs was a bit premature.

The thing that stuck out for me (besides how awesome Yao played) was the end of the second game Yao got on the mic and the whole stadium was expecting a huge speech and he spoke for like 15 seconds tops, I thought this was very funny.
