    Man i'm so out of touch with the NBA these days, haven;t watched a game this whole season. Theres been so much player trading lately, it's crazy looking at how different the teams are.

    My picks, i'm going more on less on what teams and players I like:

    Denver in 7, I can't stand the Lakers (although they have got Radman now who was a favourite of mine on console games)

    Houston in 6

    Phoenix in 7. I hate Duncan and the Spurs. Nash, Amare, and Shaq will do the business.

    Dallas in 6. Kidd and Dirk, hells yeah. Although i do like Peja and Chandler as well.

    Laker hater huh? I see how it is, haha

    BTW!!! When Andrew Bynum is cleared to return, Phil jackson said he would 'immediately' start for the Lakers, meaning....

    PG - Derek Fisher
    SG - Kobe Bryant
    SF - Lamar Odom
    PF - Pau Gasol
    C - Andrew Bynum

    now that everyone is comfortable cause theyre playing in their natural positions...lets whoop some ass shall we?

    Major 4 legs good 2 legs bad V.I.P.

    I'll go with...

    Lakers in 6
    Rockets in 7
    Spurs in 6
    Mavericks in 7

    I've hardly watched any NBA this year, but I am looking forward to the Western Conference playoffs. Everybody is so evenly matched. The East, I don't give a fuck about.
