AD hurt again and the Suns are blowing out the Lakers early. This could be the end of the LeBron era.
He can’t carry a team but no reason to think they can’t compete next year with a healthy Davis and some other additions.

The next round of the playoffs has some great matchups. I like watching the hockey playoffs but will have to look in on these.

Milwaukee-Brooklyn is going to be epic.  If Dallas can beat LAC, that's going to be epic as well.

As much as I want to see Brooklyn vs Dallas in the finals, Atlanta vs Dallas would be interesting for the Trae-Luka dynamic.

Not sure why you'd want Brooklyn-Dallas when the Suns and Jazz are clearly the class of the league and bound to match up best against the Nets.

it's between them and the bucks. Philadelphia is done and Atlanta just doesn't seem ready to make that leap yet

Cool story, but we were talking about who imref wants to see in the Finals, not who will make it.

You'd see him get swept.  The Jazz and Suns are much deeper and probably the only teams that can hang with a team like the Nets.

Bucks still in it? I will be rooting for them, mildly. Giannis is just fun to watch and I like Middleton.

Doncic is a great player but it’s tiresome watching him complain to the refs on a every single play. In a league of complainers he takes the cake. 

Majonovich has absolutely no touch.  Missed four shots from a combined five feet.

Every time I watch that (I’m thinking more Beal), I just wish refs would issue techs and end it

Yes Beal has gotten to be a major whiner also.

Sixers run into a hot shooting Hawks team in the opener.  Still think they will take the series.  Clips and Mavs should be an epic game seven.

Doncic really choking at the line.  I think he is too unselfish.  Often seems to have a layup and passes it out.  He should shoot every time.

Paul George doing his disappearing act as he often does in these key game.  Marcus Morris stepping it up for him.

Looks like that happened early.

You jinxed the Mavs, imref.

Now pick the Sixers to go to the Finals, please. :P

Well, since I really don't want to see the Clippers in the finals....GO CLIPPERS!

Luka had the best statistical playoffs of a player his age.   Destroyed Lebron at the same age

Lebron’s runs with that godawful cavs team were amazing based on how deep he was able to drag them. The mavs aren't good around Luka, but I don’t think they’re that bad

slight edit
