I hope I don't have to wait too long for David West to rip Lance Stephenson's head off.

Heat in 6
Thunder in 7 (why not, this series is more even than people think and refball could tip it in the Thunder's favour)

Spurs have homecourt in the finals, so Spurs in 7

You dudes are getting the Golden Boy vs The LeBrons and you will like it.

I also considered how hilarious it would be if the NBA gets the nightmare screnario Spurs/Pacers matchup. Besides the Leonard/Hill trade talking point the only other thing they'd have to talk about is the most consistent team of the last decade going against this dysfunctional unit. There's also the fact that Tim Duncan is Roy Hibbert's mentor and they workout every off-season.

I'd take a Spurs/Pacers Finals because it'd guarantee a Spurs title. I was rooting for it last year as a going away present for Stern.

As for the Conference Finals, I got the Heat in 6 and Spurs in 7.

Originally I had OKC in 6 until the Ibaka news broke. Hope I'm wrong about it going 7 though. After what happened in game 6 of the 2012 WCF I just can't see the Spurs ending it in OKC. Pop needs to play game 6 of last year's Finals again to remind the team how close they are to wiping away the bad taste from their mouths. With the exception of Blair and Neal, there was little roster turnover.

Since absolutely nobody in the world is giving Indiana a chance it'd be insane if they came out like the first half of the season Pacers and just dismantled the Heat in every game......yeah I know it's not happening but a man can dream.

I forgot how bad Bosh's post defense can be, it seems like it gets worse every time I see him. It's only been a quarter but I think that's going to be an issue all series so have some faith Dama!

The importance of Bosh to the Heat's system this year is p. crazy when you realize if he's not hitting a shot or two early in the game causing teams to panic and drawing out a teams opposing big man than he's p. much useless to them out there... especially if their opponents have someone who can abuse Bosh in the post.

It's the one reason why I just can't believe in them this year because when Bosh isn't doing his part in spacing out the opposing teams defense the Heat just look like a good yet horribly flawed team offensively.

Getting the Hawks in the first round may have been the best thing to happen to the Pacers.  I knew it was just a bad matchup and they would have an easier time with the Wizards, but pretty much all the pressure/expectations are on the Heat now as far as winning the series.  As far as winning the series, I will believe it when I see it, but it won't be the slaughter that everyone here seems to expect

Bosh played bad, Pacers shot well from 3 and Pacers shot an ungodly amount of FT compared to the Heat. None of those things will hold up in Game 2. Heat in 5.

I think it holds up in game two but then the Heat blow 'em out by 25 or more every game after dropping the first two.

I could see this Pacers-Heat series seeing both teams hold serve on their home court (hence why I went out on a big limb and picked the Pacers in 7).  The Pacers fought all year to get home court for this series, so we'll see how it goes.

Thunder got blown out and had horrible interior defense. Nothing to see here, everything going as expected without Ibaka and Brooks at the helm.

Brooks is like the rain man with his lineups. No matter what is happening in a game he has to substitute the same people at the same time and he always has to have the same starting five. You take him out of his comfort zone and he freaks the fuck out. Case in point last night.

Of course. Another non-Heat player gets injured. Lebron's knee better explode in the finals as kharmic retribution.
