Just list some different thoughts and opinions.
1. The Eastern Conference playoffs are a waste of time.
Miami is going to ultimately represent the East in the Finals, probably against the Spurs. But regardless of who wins the WCF we all know deep down that the Heat are gonna win the East. Sorry, Knicks, sorry, Pacers, sorry, anybody else. It's Miami's time to shine. Again.
2. Tim Duncan is the best center in the NA right now.
Remember when this was a battle between Dwight Howard and Anderw Bynum? Lol. Me neither.
Now I know what you're thinking - Duncan's not a center. Only he is. Pop uses him as a 5 frequently, basically whenever Splitter's not on the court. That's why basketball-reference.com has listed Duncan as a center for the past seven years. And Duncan is better than Howard, Marc Gasol, Brook Lopez, etc.
3. The Nets should be ashamed.
Seriously, you can't even beat the Bulls without Rose and Deng and Heinrich? And Noah was gimpy? And Brooklyn still went out like some b8tches... pretty embarassing, after they spent all that money.
4. I miss Westbrook.
Never thought I'd say that. But the NBA's better when Russell plays.

1. DERRICK ROSE NEEDS TO PLAY
Rose needs to help, by boosting his team's spirits going in on the Heat. He's was medically cleared by the Doctors in mid-March & his excuse now is "muscle memory". Come on! Bulls will need help this 'round. lol Would be cool to see him out there as well. He was the youngest MVP in NBA history.
2. Grizz Show
Mr. Low market, pound it inside, and play solid D, Memphis is alright. Sure, they just lost game 1 to the Thunder, but it was only by TWO in OKC. Grizzlies make a remarkable move and get defensive minded Tashaun Prince from the Pistons for RUDY GAY! Prince is showing his veteran leadership, and Tony Allen's the new Ron Artest from back in the day. TEam's good, take my word on it.
3. Stephen Curry is better than Pops...
Wow, Warriors just abused the favorite Nuggets. It just went down like that.

Glad you got this one, PCHy. Kinda like PCH is burning, which you haven't done for a while now, by the way. Anyway you beat me to the punch on Derrick Rose. Dude should be out there balling instead of watching Noah limp around the court...
1. The Knicks are toast.
Yeah, it's only been one game but already this series feels over. The Pacers are much too physical for the Knicks as evidenced by Indiana's large rebounding advantage in Game One. NY has to hope for perfection from Carmelo to even make it a series because as a team the Knicks just can't match up with Indy. The Pacers are too deep, too physical, too good defensively. MIA-IND in the ECF.
2. Props to Durant for beating the Grizzlies.
Not props to the Thunder; props to Durant. It was a one man show. Durant lead OKC in points, rebounds, assists, etc. and frankly I'm impressed. I expected OKC to fall down and die against Memphis since Russ Westbrook is out. But Durant would not be stopped.
3. Get ready to eat it, Spurs haters.
San Antone is gonna make the Finals again and honestly I wouldn't be surprised to see them dethrone the mighty Miami Heat. I think Duncan has one more ring in him.

1. Bulls are 9-8 against the Heat in the Big 3 era!
Crazy. Joakim Noah is a frkn scraper. Jimmy "baskets" is pretty dank too.
Heat will probably bounce back, somehow take the series, but, in Chicago, isn't gonna come any easier. #Luol #didn't #play
2. I'm tired of talking about Carmelo.
He's made like 35 buckes outta 110 in the last couple games.
3. Can we say, M-----a----N-----U? What a game, possibly the best of the playoffs, Bulls vs Nets & 3 O.T.'s has an argument.

1. The Bulls are tough as nails.
Despite what I said in my first argument the Bulls took game one in Miami. Pretty damn impressive. More impressive there was no Derrick Rose, no Luol Deng, no Kirk Hinrich. And Joakim Noah was basically playing on one leg. And they still took it to the Heat. Jimmy Butler played all 48 minutes, the third straight game in which he hasn't missed a second. The guy is an animal. Chicago is woefully overmatched on paper but in reality they seem like nothing is impossible, as if the will to win can trump talent and athleticism.
We'll see. Either way the 2012-13 Chicago Bulls have won my respect. Even Joakim Noah, and I've hated him for years.
2. Spurs-Warriors game one was an instant classic.
We a saw it; no need to waste time on a play-by-play. All I'll say is as a Spurs fan I came thiiiis close to a heart attack several times, and I went from cursing Manu to singing his praises in about a half second flat. Amazing game and a great win for Los Spurs.
Well that about wraps her up. I think PCH and I are gonna draw this one, so to the two of you who viewed this YD I say thanks and sorry it ended thusly.
