As much as I don't like Philly and Brooklyn, both franchises deserve to win a championship.

It would be a pleasant surprise if the Suns or Jazz win the title this year.

The Clips are also deserving, but hey, they're the Clips, something always goes wrong for them in the playoffs. :lol:

Deserve has nothing to do with it. All trash franchises left. One has to win by elimination.

Pandemic P is what's going wrong every year, basically. Same this year. If he doesn't nut up, they'll go down to the Jazz.
Good assessment:

Philly's top 2 players were drafted by them so I see the point there. But Brooklyn? The only thing they did was move to Brooklyn. They got their first 2 stars through FA and then a 3rd star forced his way to their team in an attempt to make the league as boring and uncompetitive as possible. They don't deserve ****.

Bucks are showing some life.
I think that Nets still win the Series. Maybe 4-0.

Bruce Brown and Mike James taking over on the road. Makes perfect sense.

Watching the Bucks Nets recording.
I've said many times, the Bucks are flawed.
They need a new coach, more help for Giannis, and a different role for him too. The coach has had enough chances, Middleton and Holiday aren't enough and Giannis must play to his strengths.
The Nets are really good of course. Nash got himself a great staff to get this team gelling. Harden will be back for the Finals or if they're down in a series. Durant sole vulnerability is his strength. Opposing teams have to bully him every minute of the game. He has to be fouled hard, hitting the floor and pushed around. Not dirty per say but hard, physical competitive play.
Teams will be doing this to Tatum this coming year. That's why we really have to get bigger, tougher and more physical this coming year. Not in the backcourt or small wing but in the front court.
That's the Way of the World

Giannis is a #2 option on a championship team.

So in crunch time it’s a Durant vs. Middleton shootout? Yeah, Milwaukee is screwed.

I did NOT anticipate the Nets suddenly going to Bruce Brown down the stretch... think Nash got a little too clever.
