That is basically what people are expecting to happen... most seasons we see a couple of first round upsets though.
I'll bet for the Clippers, since a decent team led by a superstar like CPaul can beat Memphis.
I hope Dallas can surprise OKC again, but that seems more difficult.

I basically agree. Though with Rose's injury now, Philadelphia has a shot.

I still take Chicago with no Rose over Philly. It's not really a lopsided series anymore but i'd say Chicago in 6. After the debacle in the Miami/NY game my goodness i have a hard time seeing NY taking more than 1 game if that. I don't think it was a smart move personally to have Mr. injury out there with 1 min left in the game and a double digit lead, no matter how he tries to defend it.

Yeah. Well the thing about is, even your upset prediction is the easiest and most common one as well. Because even though Memphis is the better and more complete team than LAC, LAC has indisputably the best player on either team and as we have seen before, if that one guy plays out of his mind they can overcompensate for their weaknesses.

You can't really call him Mr. Injury considering that this season was shortened and injury was more of the case all season for almost every team. Once they get back to a normal season with more days off, then you can jump to assumptions like that.

As mentioned, you can call him that if this is a trend carried over multiple seasons.
