why did this thread die? okc on a tear, chicago rolling, cleveland still finding there way(i think waiters needs to go), lowry balling without derozan. Heck im already excited for playoff basketball. If i had to give an early season predicion for that, it'd be cavs bulls ecf, bulls in six. in the west idk, toss up between spurs, thunder, grizz, and warriors. My gut says thunder bulls in the finals(like it shouldve been in 2012) but im having strong feelings about the grizz and spurs making it out of the west. I think the likely matchup is bulls spurs in the finals, with the grizz being my next pick and thunder after them. I like the warriors but they need more playoff experience, tho i think wcf is a lock for them. Tho i want my thunder spurs rematch(yes 3rd in 4 years) and i want it to go 7 this time. cleveland i don't think makes finals, there bottom of the league in defense, and what good is putting up 100 a night if your giving up 105, plus, lebron and kyrie aren't gelling, and kyrie i think is too young to understand how to, the way wade did in 2011. chicago is too good on both ends of the court, there no longer dependent on rose, and hey can now put up 100+ and hold you to sub 90.
