I'm sure most teams think that when playing Miami. Far harder to do though.

Nothing would make me happier than LeBron destroying teams, dominating the playoffs, and finally winning a championship (other than Lin doing it, but I think I'll be pragmatic for now).

The Bulls scare me the most out of any team in the NBA. You guys should really listen to Tenchi Ryu; he's a good poster (regarding the Bulls at least). You can tell he watches every game and knows his team.

Tbh, the thing I'm worried about is the Bulls' consistency. They play at or close to their realistic potential and are dominant because of it. The Heat simply cannot be beaten if they play at their realistic potential...but it's so rare and only lasts for short stretches...

That will be the deciding factor imo (besides possible coaching influences): which team will give the greater effort?

Lol wow....so high of expectations. I hope LBJ gives their fans that kind of fix one day. That kind of fascination is serious stuff.

I Think it's clear that chicago and miami are going to the ECF. The important thing is what path they take. What teams they will have to play in the second round is almost as important as the 3rd.

Whereas with the Celtics and Shaq, the goal was that he'd hopefully be able to play a little bit.
I hope you're right, I'm a fan of most of the UConn guys. But whenever a player north of 30 misses a lot of games you have to be concerned.

Fear is the wrong word, but if the Knicks can come together with the roster they have, they are capable of giving them a seriously tough series.

As for the Celtics, they need their whole roster 100% healthy to stand a chance and I dont see that happening...

Bulls v Heat in the ECF again. Closer than last year but I would bet on the Heat in 6.
