2009 NBA Playoff Preview.

Comments Link

East:
#1 Cleveland vs. #8 Detroit
Ok, so, three years ago, these teams met in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Cavs were a four seed and Detroit was the number one team in the East. Now, Detroit is the #8 seed. How you can go from first place to barely clinging to a playoff spot in three years is mindbottling.

Joe Dumars is in the process of blowing the team up, and I really think this series is going to accelerate that process, mainly because it's not going to end well for De-triot Basket-ball. It doesn't help that these two teams have been rivals for the last couple of years, and I think that LeBron and company are salivating at the opportunity to stomp a mud-hole in the Pistons. Detroit is going to get exposed as team consisting of a couple of overpaid and declining veterans (Sheed and Richard Hamilton), a solid player that will never be a star (Tayshaun) and a ton of young talent (Stuckey, Maxiell and the rest of the crew). Iverson is shut down for the rest of the year, and McDyess has played A LOT of minutes this year. Oh, and, Kwame Brown is getting a lot of run lately, mainly because they've run out of warm bodies to put in the middle. Yikes. They are a mess.

It is shocking to me that Cleveland was just one back-court player away this whole time. But that's what Mo Williams has done. I think he's even helped Delonte West become a much better player, and what's really shocking is that the LeBron/Mo Will/Delonte West combo is actually turning out to be pretty dominate. Crazy, I know, but this is essentially the same team that went to the Finals two years ago with a backcourt of Sasha Pavlovic and Larry Hughes, so their current rotation I just mentioned is a huge upgrade. Ilgauskas and Sideshow Bob also are very efficient, they do their jobs, and they don't complain. It's a very interesting, but very good starting five.

The Cavs weakness is their bench. Joe Smith, some rookie named Darnell Jackson, Wally Szcerbiak, the aforementioned Sasha Pavlovic and Daniel Gibson don't exactly inspire fear in the opposing team. Ben Wallace is back, but Darnell Jackson had to start a couple of games when Varejao was out with a bruised wrist. If there's a major injury to one of their starters, it could derail this team rather quickly. With that said, I still think they make it to the FInals.

Cavs in four or five.

#2 Boston vs. #7 Philadelphia
Hey Philly, thanks for comin' out. They actually look like a promising young squad, but they've got a couple of problems. One of them is Elton Brand; they were actually a better team once he was declared out for the season. So, while they need his post production to go against teams like Boston, he also is a giant vacuum and I think that hurts the rest of the team. They've also had a bunch of bad luck. Brand played 29 games. Thaddeus Young was ON FIRE until he went down with a bone bruise. He was back the other night and they are definitely a much more interesting team with him, but they're one or two more pieces/seasons away from taking out one of the top dogs in the East.

A perfect example was their game against Boston Tuesday night. The Celtics were without KG, and the Sixers led for most of the game but somehow managed to lose their lead and even had a chance at the end to win it, but they pretty much snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory. Making the playoffs will help them, they just need time and another piece or two and then I think they can be one of the elite teams in the East.

On the other side, the Celtics are looking creaky, man. KG isn't 100%. You got Ray Allen and Paul Pierce looking pretty tired, they each look like they're a pulled hammy just waiting to happen. Then you've got Starbury on the end of the bench. Yikes. I honestly think there's an implosion ready to happen, and I'm not saying this because I hate Boston; they just don't look good. They will win this series, but Orlando is looming in the second round, and I think the Magic will push them to the limit. Even if they make it out of that series, I think they're going to be too tired and too beat up to be competitive against the Cavs.

KG is the real key, they need him to play big minutes and be effective and it looks like he just can't do that this year. When your alternative is a dude named Big Baby who only seems to show up on Fridays, you're in big trouble (Look it up, he goes off every Friday. If Boston made it to the Finals and they only played the games on Fridays, he'd be Finals MVP).

Celtics could get in a little bit of trouble in this series, the Sixers don't have a whole lot of big bodies, but they have explosive guards and wing players, and if you look at the problems the Celtics had in Eastern Conference playoffs last year, those kinds of teams gave them fits. They'll make it out of this round, but they're going to run into a brick wall in the next round.

Celtics in six.

#3 Orlando vs. #6 Chicago
Yeah, Chicago is still a mess and it looks like they just don't have much of a chance here. Too much Dwight Howard. Too many three-pointers for the Magic. And the Bulls really don't have many answers for either of those.

Derek Rose has made an incredible impact; they were 12th in the East last year and won 33 games; they're 6th this year and won 41 games. The rest of the team is just a mess. Too many guys that have the same game that play similar roles, they really need to make another trade or two to solidify their roster. They've had some bad luck this year; Luol DANG! is pretty much out for the rest of the year unless they make the Finals somehow, and he's the guy they were originally building around. They've also gotta figure out what they're going to do with Ben Gordon for the second off-season in a row. This team is guard-heavy and their front-court (with the exception of John Salmons) is full of space-cases. Joakim Noah and Tyrus Thomas are just so inconsistent, neither can be trusted to hold up their end. They need post help and I really don't know how they're going to get it without trading for it.

Looking past this matchup, Orlando has played the tops dogs in the East very well, and they also have a very good record against the West. I don't see them advancing to the Finals this year, but it's something to keep in mind for the next few seasons. They could be a threat to go to the FInals for the next couple of years, especially when teams like Boston and Detroit are declining. I really like their inside-out game, and Howard is just a monster. Look for him to breakout in this series especially, because the Bulls don't have anyone that can matchup with him.

Magic in four or five.

#4 Atlanta vs. #5 Miami
So, if you're Atlanta and I told you at the beginning of the year that you would finish the year as a 4th seed and have home-court advantage, you'd be pretty stoked, right? But then I bet you'd be pretty depressed when I told them that they'd have to play the Heat in the first round. Dwyane Tyrone Wade, Jr. is one of a handful of guys that can put a team on their shoulders and singlehandedly win a playoff series. And I think he does it in this one. The Hawks are still too young, they still don't quite know how to win even with an experienced Mike Bibby at the helm. The Heat are going to give them a heavy dose Wade and it is going to be overwhelming.

Just like the Pistons rapid decline, I think it's interesting that the Heat have bounced back so quickly. They have a healthy MVP-candidate in Wade, and he's pretty much the entire story here; they've got nice role players, but that's about it. Wade does most of the heavy lifting, with Jermaine O'Neal contributing a big shot here and there, but the rest of the squad is nothing to write home about. Beasley is off to a good start to his career and he is only going to get better, but they really need a third option for the future when O'Neal starts to break down. Somehow, they got it done during the season, and it really helped that they're in the East. They would be battling for the 8th spot in the West. They remind me of the Lakers from a 2005/2006; they've got one superstar, one good player, and a bunch of role players. They need to get another piece, pull a bench together and then they could be a threat.

I think this series is going to be back-and-forth. It's going to be exciting. Lots of close games. I think the home team wins three each and then Dwayne Wade goes off in Atlanta in Game Seven and the Heat move on.

Miami in Seven. Could be the best series in the first round.

West:
#1 Los Angeles vs. #8 Utah
The Lakers have run away with the conference. They're up big in the Western Conference standings. They are second in the league in wins. They're healthy. They've got guys coming back at the right time. They're poised for another run at the title.

BUT, they need to focus in the first round, because Utar plays them tough. For a first-round match-up, this is not a favorable one for the Lakers. I mean, the Jazz won 48 games; Detroit won 39. There's about a 10 game difference between the #8 seeds in each conference. So, I guess I'm saying that the West is still better, despite the fact that ESPN is trying to tell you that the East has caught up.

One Sidenote: I am disappointed that the Suns are not in the playoffs. Couldn't we have had a NCAA type of gimmick where the Jazz and the Suns have to play their way in? One game, neutral site, tonight or tomorrow or something. That would be awesome.

Anyways, the Lakers are rolling right now. They're finally healthy again and as good as the West is, I just don't see anyone that can challenge them. I mean, they finished 11 games ahead of Denver, and they played the last two or three months without their starting center. So, they're pretty good.

Utah is scrappy, but for some reason, they just haven't put it together this year. They've had injuries, but even when they've been fully healthy, they really haven't impressed. They'll get a game or two because they play well at home, but that's about it. They've got some work to do in the offseason.

These two teams played Tuesday night, in L.A., and Utah played them tough for about three quarters, but then they kind of just collapsed. I think that's how most of the games in this series will go; Utah will hang, but they'll get worn down by the time the fourth quarter comes around.

Los Angeles in five.

#2 Denver vs. #7 New Orleans
Man, the rest of these West match-ups have had a lot of movement. Things were finally settled last night and the Lakers/Jazz matchup was the only one that didn't change. Lots of interesting match-ups and I think the rest of these all go seven.

Denver is on a roll as of late, but man, has their schedule been soft for the last month. They basically played every non-playoff team, and then the #5, 7 and 8 seeds in the West. And last night's effort against Portland was pretty disappointing. They got steamrolled. I think they're soft and they've benefited from a great schedule, but they've pretty much been in the second spot for most of the season, so they might be legit, who knows. That Chauncey Billups trade really paid off, he's the main reason they've turned this all around. I watched a game over the weekend and they said that George Karl loves Chauncey because they run actual plays now. He said that since he's been there as a coach, this is the first time that they've run regular plays. Yeah. Pretty amazing.

Billups has also helped with their defensive intensity; they actually play something resembling defense now. They're going to have their hands full with the Hornets though, they can really get up and down. I think this is going to be an exciting series. They split the season series and each team won a game on the other's home-court. So it's going to be a good one. The point guard matchup is going to be great, and both teams matchup well in pretty much every other position. I think it's going to come down to two things: which team's stars are going to dominate, and which role players are going to step up.

Somehow, someway, I think Denver pulls this off, But it's going to be close.

Denver in seven.

#3 San Antonio vs. #6 Dallas
This is going to be an interesting series. Manu is done for the season, that's the main headline. Dallas...they've had a really weird season. I don't know what their problem is or how they fix it. They've got a strange roster and their personnel doesn't really fit the kind of style they want to play. As a result, they can go through scoring droughts and they can look like a monkey fucking a football out there sometimes when they're trying to score.

Dallas has a couple of things going for them though. I already mentioned that San Antonio is hobbled, but I caught most of Dallas' game last night, and it's encouraging how they came back from a deficit and then just started dominating. I can see them doing the same thing to the Spurs in this series. They're not going to go any further, but I think they've got one round in them.

Fin-dogg saved the Spurs ass last night, but without Manu, he's going to have to do that every game, and I just don't think the Spurs have the depth. Tony Parker will have a good series, he's picked it up since Manu has been out, but Duncan seems content to just playing like he normally does. It's nice to have that stability, but when one of your stars is out, you've gotta pick it up. Maybe he's coasting to the playoffs, but I think they're tired and they don't have the personnel to go very far this year. I think Dallas barely scrapes this out.

Dallas in seven.

#4 Portland vs. #5 Houston
These two teams have had the most movement. Portland was as low as sixth a week ago, and Houston was as high as third just yesterday. Crazy.

This is a very interesting matchup. The Rockets were handled at Dallas last night; not really the way you want to end the season. Portland blew out the Nuggs at home and they look ready for the playoffs. They really don't have a whole lot to lose here, they're young and I don't think a whole lot of people are picking them to win. I liked their chances a whole lot better when they were matched up against a hobbled San Antonio; this Rockets team will give them some problems.

Both teams matchup very well, I think Portland has the deeper squad, and they have more firepower coming off of the bench. I think the second squad, anchored by Rudy Fernandez and Travis Outlaw, is where the Blazers can make something happen. Their starting five isn't bad either, but those two guys coming off of the bench just give them a great advantage.

I think the ghost of Tracy McGrady comes back to haunt the Rockets and they lose in a game seven in Portland.

Portland in seven.

Semis:
Cleveland vs. Miami. Too much LeBron and company, Cavs in Five.

Boston vs. Orlando. Man, this is going to be a good series. I really want the Magic to win. Magic in six.

Los Angeles vs. Portland. This is not going to be a walk in the park for the Lakers. The Blazers play them tough. Lakers in six. But a tough six.

Denver vs. Dallas. Dallas' luck runs out. Denver in six.

Conference Finals:
Cleveland vs. Orlando. The Magic are too young. They've go the future to look forward to. The Cavs need to win now. It will be a good series, but Cavs in six.

Los Angeles vs. Denver.
Yeah, I know, these are boring picks, but when you play seven games each round, it's really hard to have an upset. Lakers take care of business and show Denver that they may be a second seed, but they're still miles away from the top spot. Lakers in five.

Finals:
Los Angeles vs. Cleveland. The Cavs have home court, but their one loss at home was against the Lakers. I like this matchup though, it's going to be great seeing Kobe and LeBron going at each other. It comes down the supporting casts, and I think the Lakers are just a little better. This could go seven, but I think the Lakers in six.

who makes families pay back debt that grandpa owed? The people that are owed the money.

what we would have to do is leave Washington DC alone. It will still be the USA. And that country will be responsible for paying it's own debt off.

states would be weaker, unable to defend themselves eventually.

Steve said...

"states would be weaker, unable to defend themselves eventually."

we'd band together when it counted. just like europe.

Jugdish said...

mean states like NY would bully the smaller neighboring states like RI and CT creating a Nazi Germany like regime.

Jugdish said...

the UN wouldn't want that to happen anyways, who will take care of the world's problems and take all the blame then?

tem said...

"mean states like NY would bully the smaller neighboring states like RI and CT creating a Nazi Germany like regime."

good, fuck RI and CT.

Jugdish said...

it would eventually lead to a civil war, we'd be setting back the clock.

Steve said...

"mean states like NY would bully the smaller neighboring states like RI and CT creating a Nazi Germany like regime."


if anybody would, it'd be NY.

what's the point of those two states anyways.

what do they do? i've always said we should move the jews our of Iseral and give them RI.

tem said...

"the UN wouldn't want that to happen anyways, who will take care of the world's problems and take all the blame then?"

are you saying this solution isn't realistic?

tem said...

that i am perhaps oversimplifying it?

tem said...

that perhaps, there is more to the work involved than meets the eye?

Steve said...

now have resolved the national debt and brought peace to the middle east.

win win

tem said...

that it isn't well thought out?

tem said...

that the details of the plan are lacking?

Jugdish said...

are you saying this solution isn't realistic?


i've crunched the mumbers...it doesn't look to good.

i am just hoping grandpa pays his bills.

tem said...

"it would eventually lead to a civil war, we'd be setting back the clock"

good we need to thin the herd anyway.

too many dumb people under 25 running around right now. back in the day they had a word for dumbasses that young. it was called infantry.

tem said...

this plan is nothing short of brilliant and should be applauded without question.

Jugdish said...

California doesn't think this is a good idea...they are broke and sinking into the ocean.

tem said...

CA doesn't get a vote.

tem said...

they can stay part of one of their neighboring states if they want.

Jugdish said...

CA doesn't get a vote.

a vote in what? isn't it up to each state whether or not to opt out?

tem said...

NY, CT, MA, etc can all just form a new country called New England. El pad could be it's first president.

"that perhaps, there is more to the work involved than meets the eye?"

im pumped for transformers 2

tem said...

"a vote in what? isn't it up to each state whether or not to opt out?"

you'd think that's how this amazingly thought out plan would work, but it doesn't. it works differently. you'll see.

Jugdish said...

I agree with this except for the name...it would be called Bnewer York.

I'm assuming tents are still in the plans.

tem said...

of course. tents are a must.

Steve said...

i've looked up military by state, here is how NC would fare:

Army 39,496
Navy & Marine Corps 38,818
Air Force 9,131
Active Duty Military 87,445
Reserve and National Guard 37,888
Total Personnel 125,333

not bad.

kodiac said...

If Texas opts out...I will create a Petoria like nation.

-just stay away from my pool, ok?

tem said...

he will annex your pool, call it kodhio and war will be declared.

kod will send step kids of kod and step grand kids of kod into battle.

Jugdish said...

i've looked up military by state, here is how NC would fare:


Wouldn't active duty personnel be divided up amongst the states?

I haven't looked, but I'm guessing Texas would be fine there too. Which states have the nukes? They'd be the ones to fear.

Jugdish said...

kod will send step kids of kod and step grand kids of kod into battle.


I would be done for!

tem said...

nukes get split up evenly. as does the armed forces.

chuck norris is a free agent. he goes to the highest bidder.

El Padrino said...

Pesidente El Pad reporting for duty.

Steve, Deke your relationships are no longer considered a binding marriage.

El Padrino said...

beth will you be my monica lewinsky?

Jugdish said...

Georgia would be turned back into a prison state.

El Padrino said...

jug you are head of the military and can use excessive force against all gays

Steve said...

EP's first order ob business:

Run all the Jews, Gays, Blacks, Latinos, Non-Cathloics, and tall people out of the state.

El Padrino said...

Georgia would be turned back into a brothel state.

*fizedddd

tem said...

i knew president el pad would not disappoint.

he put someone from a different country (texas/jugoria) in charge of his military.

El Padrino said...

*Run all the Russians, Gays, Illegals, Extreme Muslims, and retarded people out of the state.

*fizzeedd

tem said...

beth runs georgia. if she wants to whore it out to some other lawyering state she can.

El Padrino said...

beth will move to ny and be my secretary of semen

Jugdish said...

It makes sense to move all gays to one state, maybe Alaska. Move all straight people out of Alaska.

eventually science takes over and the gays die off

El Padrino said...

kod will move to ny to work for me too, he will keep an eye on all the sex clubs and work for the division of family affairs

El Padrino said...

keef would be my supreme court judge

Jugdish said...

H can be your secretary of transportation.

Jugdish said...

Steve said...

"This ends the streak of over 50 year old women up there."

El Padrino said...
