    Round 1 is almost done, not long to go.

    Spurs almost done, Magic almost done. They are probably the two biggest surprises so far.
    Celtics sweep Knicks, Bulls almost sweep Pacers in a closer than the result indicates series, same with Heat and 76ers, though Game 5 still waiting to happen, same Oklahoma.

    So whose your pick to represent the East and West and whose going to win it all?

    My choice:

    Memphis vs Oklahoma - Oklahoma in 4 (sorry Memphis)
    Dallas vs Las Angeles Lakers - Lakers in 6
    Chicago vs Atlanta - Bulls in 5
    Boston vs Miami - Boston in 7

    Oklahoma vs Los Angeles Lakers - Oklahoma in 6
    Chicago vs Boston - Chicago in 7

    Chicago vs Oklahoma - Chicago in 6

    (Not that I am a Bulls homer or anything)

    You didn't put the thunder in your poll, who happens to be my pick to win it. I also think people are vastly overrating the Bulls, they beat the Pacers in 5, but most of the games were close. Meh maybe I'm just hating because I'm a Pistons fan, but I can't see them beating the Magic, Celtics, Heat, or Hawks(If they actually show up).

    If San Antonio comes back, everyone's going to blame you. :wink2:

    Going to turn the clock back here as I'm in interested in hearing your opinions.

    Did Michael push off?

    Obviously Jordan's hand made contact, but was it enough to send Russell flying into a different area code? I say no, because it looks like Russell was already starting to fall, so either way, Jordan would have gotten enough separation.

    Crap. I knew I'd forget some important team.

    Which is also funny because I hope they win it if the Bulls don't.

    As for the Bulls, I have the same feeling, games 1 - 4 were not our best. We were back to our best today in Game 5. We'll beat Atlanta, and we are deeper than Miami...if we play our best.

    Completely agree with your conference finals and the Bulls winning it all. The only thing I disagree with is the number of games you have in some of these series. I also think the Magic will win their series against the Hawks.

    I'd say Lakers in 5 against the Mavs, Bulls in 6 against the Magic, and Celtics in 5 against the Heat.

    I said Boston would win. Sucks, but ah well...

    I think the Lakers will get knocked off by OKC. I wouldn't mind seeing OKC winning it all, and they could.

    Bulls I think will fall short. Just something about them I'm not sold on, even though I would much rather them win in the east than Miami, Boston, etc.
