Yeah you my be right. I don't care if we're underdogs. I just remember we were the 4 seed against Houston and I felt even though Houston was a 5 seed they had the edge. If Brandon Roy didn't play like Jordan in a few of those games that could have been a sweep. So seeding doesn't always mean much.

As for experience, Batum kicked as last year for us. Rudy can't possibly be any worse. Matthews had to guard Kobe and Melo last year. I think he will be very valuable as far as experience goes.

These playoffs should be awesome because there's greater upset chances in every western series.
