And that's something I would want to avoid. Heat,Celtics and Bulls really worry me. I wouldn't even want to play the Nets either even though I prefer to play them than MIA,CHI or BOS.
I have no fear of the Pacers,Hawks,Bucks,Sixers or whoever else makes it.
Beating Celtics in the playoffs would be something special. But if we have to meet I don't want it to be in the 1st round.
