No real team I care for, but would like to see Nets pull a Boston Celtics and win a ring year 1.

Wouldn’t mind 76ers winning either.

Probably not much of a chance of going all the way, but I am supporting Portland overall.
They are the team I would most like to see in it.
Other than that, I love seeing upsets. Go Suns, Go Grizz.
In the East, I would like to see the Bucks in the finals, but it's probably going to be the Nets or 76'ers.

Sixers because of Simmons being an Aussie, and because I like Embiid.

I actually wouldn’t mind the Nets winning, i still think Durant is a great player who risked his Achilles’ tendon in pursuit of a further title with GSW, and I don’t mind PG Harden as opposed to Moreyball Harden either. Far rather they win than the Lakers.

Grizzlies are getting a nice bonus playoff appearance for their young cast. This will benefit them in the future.

In 2013 I think GS was as talented as San Antonio, but they lacked playoff experience. They screwed up what should have been a pretty simple close out of the 4th quarter in game 1 because they just weren't used to playoff basketball.

Whatever happens against the Jazz, the Grizzlies will be better for it next year.

Anybody except LA, with the possible exception of Brooklyn. I'd root for the Nets over either LA team, but I don't like them much either -- I hated the "let's buy up a bunch of stars" thing when LA tried it a decade or so ago with Malone and Nash. I guess Portland is my favorite, because Dame is the real thing and, unlike Steph, he's never really had a team worthy of his talents.

Hoping Bucks beat the Nets.

Also, Westbrick is flaming out in the playoffs again. Beal is so screwed.

if the bucks beat the nets it means the lakers will likely win another one so hell no.
as much as don't like BRK budding-up them and the clippers :lol: are the only two teams that can defeat the lakers. all other teams are fool's gold. unless the lakers get bounced earlier (dunno how except AD body breaks down) in the playoff it's better the nets win the east.

Anybody but the Lakers please.

But really, the "playoff" win for me is the Warriors miracle of double winning the draft and getting #1 and #4. :)

I have some teams that I like, some teams that I don't mind and some teams that I dislike.
Denver is probably my favorite because of Jokic, but I don't see them going too far without Murray. It would be great already if they make it to the second rount, Portland is tough.
Milwaukee is another team I kinda like, especially for Jrue Holiday, which I respect a lot. I was pretty negative about their chances after the bad showings of the last two seasons, but they looked great against the Heat and Holiday seems to be a difference maker for them. Maybe they have a chance against the Nets.
Phila is also a team I wouldn't mind seeing in the finals.
I'm kinda neutral on everybody else except for the Lakers, I want them to lose to the Suns, and maybe the Nets. I like Harden and I think he deserves the ring, but I don't want to see KD and Kyrie get another one, so I'm going to root against them.

Bucks would be great to see. Small market, raise Giannis' stock and they're a likeable team.

For me it's more who I don't want. Anyone but the LA teams and more than any other team the team I expect to win.. the Nets.

Bucks...for sure. I think adding Holiday and PJ Tucker put them over the top.
Looking forward to 2073....bye bye pouting moody Durant...hello again the 73 win style of hoops!

Are you still sure those are the only 2 teams that can beat the Lakers?

And...the Lakers are gone. I'm so darn sad. Sad that they even got into the playoffs. LeBron is a great player, but I'm really tired of him, and without AD and LBJ both playing full-time, they're not a good team.

Well, to be fair he said except if AD body breaks down, which is what happened.
