The Thread Pick-Em
« on: April 18, 2013, 07:18:45 PM »
Three days too make picks. Pick each round who you think will win. 2 points for the 1st, 4 for 2nd. 8 for the conference finals and 16 for the champion. Unlike NCAA you may pick the next match up in the next rounds,

East

1 Heat vs 8 Bucks
2 Knicks vs 7 Celtics
3 Pacers vs 6 Hawks
4 Nets vs 5 Bulls

West
1 Thunder vs 8 Rockets
2 Spurs vs 7 Lakers
3 Nuggets vs 6 Warriors
4 Clippers vs 5 Grizzlies

Heat will be the easy pick as the Bucks couldn't do another 3-1 regular season win like last year.

But with JJ Reddick playing great with Brandon Jennings, and Monte Ellis the Bucks might be able to keep up scoring with the Heat who love to play up temple. Shooting % from the outside will be the Bucks need in this match up.

If the Bucks win this series, there will be heads exploding everywhere...I would love to see Milwaukee win for this reason...
I really think LA can beat the Spurs...everyone makes a big deal about Kobe, but the Spurs are banged up too.  Plus it's not like the Lakers have nobody...Nash, Gasol, and Howard are still a pretty damn good trio.

Now we get to the second rounds.

Sorry Fore but giving up on the NBA. Game six retarded fouls on Boozer and Gibson finally gave me the proof that this league is rigged up for looking the other way on star players that you want to win and mess with others.

Only thing that stops it is a team  that matches up to it or the chosen stars team messes up shooting bad. Then the 2-4 with stars get theirs.

Sorry for the what above but under Stern the NBA has been runned this way and feeled robbed that what Michael jordan and company did with the Jordan Rule where you couldn't hand check him without a foul lead to what we have seen to this day.

In 33 years only 9 have won it all. Way low compared to the NFL, MLB, and NHL.

Thanks for playing everyone.Not going to go on a crusade but LeBum James in my book is a headcase and refuse to waste minutes of my life watching him as he is the chosen one with the MVP where Durrant lead him in 5 of 4 the top stat categories vs him.

Go figure on the $ on that. Or go to sports Hoopla and see a excellent type of an American bandwagon fan  in BKSBaller post his man crush love on LeBum James. Loser! Like your life has been ruff cry baby.

Won't be miss as now can focus on the NHL only. And NCAA even though a little funny stuff like Duke and UNC either two in NC 1st round each tourny.

Speaking of it's Rangers 3 Capitals 3 in the 3rd 9 minutes left.
