    So the Spurs have the Lakers.. should be a interesting series, only wish Bryant was playing so we'd have Duncan vs Bryant again. Just hoping that everyone is healthy and ready to go and Pop utilizes McGrady. I'd rather him play point then de Colo, Joseph or even.. Neal *Shudders*.

      I say San Antonio in 5. Without Kobe, their playoff hopes are as good as shit.

      • I was thinking the same thing, we'll probably win in five. If in the event we do get upset then I'll never hear the end of it from my girlfriend and her family who are all die-hard Laker fans.

              That's the spirit! Spurs looking pretty old lately, and the Lakers are actually pretty youthful, without Nash, and Kobe on the court. We'll see what happens.

              • Without Kobe, LA's gonna have to become Dwight's team. I really don't know how far that'll carry them. I just don't think they have much of a chance against the Spurs.

                  I don't think Howard wanted Kobe to get injured, but now that he's out, this is the best case scenario for him, individually, to showcase what kind of player he is. The offense will focus on feeding him the ball, which wasn't the case when Kobe was playing. Of course I'd rather have the Mamba out there.

                  If Manu was his old self, I'd say the Spurs would crush the Lakers, but as it stands, he's been injury prone, and signing an old T-Mac isn't really an upgrade imo. They are just as old as the Lakers in their core, with some younger role players. As it stands, the 2 teams are very similar. Should be a good 1st round matchup.

                    I don't think much will be asked of T-Mac outside of a bit of scoring and passing/assist which he's always been pretty good with. I think Manu will be the Spurs X-factor because if he's playing like TOSB Manu then their fucked but if he manages to show some flashes of his 2011 self then it'll be a big boost. Leonard and Green will have to step up as far as scoring and rebounding. Green can't afford to pull a Houdini like he did against OKC last year and Leonard will have to be more involved instead of just taking corner threes. I'm sure Neal is going to do something that'll make me want to pull the hair out of my head with his BBIQ. Pop should not but I know he will play Bonner and Blair together, I'd rather throw Baynes into the fire then Blair. Lastly Parker is going to be vital throughout the entire series so he could be another X-factor. He shouldn't have played against L.A. and just kept resting. Duncan and Splitter will be fine for the most part imo.

                    • Watching Celtics Vs. Knicks... this kid Jeff Green is something special.

                      • I hope my OKC squad makes it back to play the Heat again but with Harden gone, I'm nervous they won't have enough scoring once they make it past the Rockets. This OKC/Rockets match up should be interesting though and fun to watch.

                        • It's kind of shitty to see OKC let go Jeff Green and James Harden and see what they are doing now.

                            Those two have really blossomed since their days in OKC.

                              Imagine if OKC would of been able or chose to keep those guys. I bet last year would of turned out different. Of course I'm using the WHAT IF scenario but they would of been loaded.

                              • I'm a fan of Birdman and I'm glad he landed in Miami. He seems to fit well with the team. He is having a good game tonight vs the Bucs. Hopefully he keeps it up!
