So who is your team in the playoffs? 

Post#1 » by Chris Porter's Hair » Sun May 23, 2021 8:11 pm

Given that things shook out the way they did, there are 16 teams to choose from and we aren't one of them. Which team would you like to see take it all this year? I'd go for either Dallas or Phoenix. I'm a big fan of Luka as a player, so seeing him do something with Dallas would be fun. And Phoenix has the long-suffering team thing that I'm sympathetic to (for some reason...) Plus they'd have to knock out the Lakers to do it...

Blazers. No chance of it happening but I would love to see Dame win if we can't

Would like to see a Blazers-Mavs matchup in the West finals, anything but the LA teams.

In the East, let's go Knicks!

76ers or Bucks. Nobody in the West.

That's another good call, actually. Not sure how I skimmed over them. Love Dame... if we aren't in the picture I could be really happy for him having success.

It's obviously Portland, any other choice is wrong.

Any team but LAL of course. Both NBA and LeBron cheated on Wednesday!

No team. Any other choice is wrong

Fine.

Curry/Biedrins for Bogut/Filler. Done and done.

Man, it's too bad we had to let Alec Burks go, this year he shot a career high from 3 (41.5%) on career-high attempts (5.0). Think we could have used that? Now he's improbably helping the Knicks in the playoffs while our guys are making golf plans.

I'm pulling for Denver in the West and Milwaukee in the East. I just like Jokic & Giannis too much.

Even though I picked Portland, it’s nice to see the Grizz taking it to Utah. Never bought Utah as a 1 seed (granted, having Mitchell out hurts them).

You hit the nail on the head dude. Two small market teams with great unselfish superstars.

Jokic is already my favorite alltime non-warrior player. Love watching his game... so it is Denver #1 for me. Would be poetic justice to have them knockout that cockroach Carmelo too.

Probably Dallas #1 out West. Utah or Portland would be cool.

In the East Knicks probably #1. Boston I would be okay with.

Im rooting for the Knicks in the EC, and in the West? I dunno, guess Denver or PDX.

PHX would typically be who I root for, but not a CP3 fan.

I really want the Nets to fail to make the finals.

Aside from that I'm always interested in Boston losing, CP3 losing, Westbrook losing.

so yeah, a Blazers/Bucks final is fine with me.

Objective question: What happens to LeBron's legacy if the Suns win?

Reading this is making me realize that as much as I'm usually sympathetic to long suffering franchises, I don't feel any sympathy for the Knicks. Perhaps because for as long as they've been bad, they've still had vocal fans and commentators acting like they were a prime destination. Can you imagine if we had spent years crowing about how the best free agents were going to want to come play with Vonteego Cummings and Bob Sura?

No big rooting interest. More against LA teams, Nets, and Hawks. But Grizz are growing on me.
