Bulls, Heat, Mavs, OKC?

Or does anyone see an underdog rising up again, like the Memphis Grizzlies?

I'm pretty sure a LOT of people on DDO could care less, but for those who do, post your opinion!

Spurs are really good this year they might make it, if they crash again though I dont see any reason why we wont see another Heat Mavs matchup.... Derrick Rose has been lookin pretty lousy so I wouldnt bet on the bulls

Western Conference Finals:
Either OKC v. Mavs (if mavs finish 6th in the west)
or
Mavs v. Spurs (if Mavs finish 5th)

Eastern Conference Finals:

Bulls v. Miami

Finals:
Mavs v. Bulls

Mavs win. I'm dead serious. Dirk EXPLODES during the playoffs.

Do you think Mavs would have a harder time with Miami or Bulls?

Miami.
As much as it pains me to say this, Miami would win if came down to it.
I even made a debate on why Bulls would beat Miami.

Not as funny as Dirk's "Fvck you" three pointer in the last minute of Game 2 in the finals. Which came after two consecutive "Fvck you" jumpers. It was then followed by a "Fvck you" game-winning layup sent directly at Bosh with 4 seconds left.

I think Blake Griffin has the most fvck you moments in the NBA he can EMBARRASS some people!

In game 1 against OKC, Dirk scored 48 points.

Want to know how many times he missed a shot? 3. Fvcking 3. With Ibaka on him.
He made 24/24 free throws.

Apollo I would love the Mavs to win too, but its not gonna happen.

This mavs team is the same as all the other mavs teams that dominated the regular season but couldnt do it in the playoffs. They have no physical Center.

Tyson Chandler was the difference last year.

This year they're basically the same team as 07 - 09, just older. Dirk will exploide in the playoffs like he always does, but it won't be enough to carry them to a championship.

The Spurs though have a shot, as long as they play good D. They really don't have any great players, but they have a ton of good players. DeJuan Blair imo is the most underrated player in the league. He's an absolute monster getting offensive rebounds, and is good scoring in the pain too. They still have the Big 3 to make the late-game shots, and also have a lot of young athletic guys like Gary Neal, Blair, Splitter, and James Anderson who they need to give more time to. The guy was a beast at OK State.

And Pop is going to make sure everyone is healthy and rested for the playoffs.

Keep in mind that they're had 2 streaks this season where they won 11 or more games in a row.

Physical centers?
Brandan Wright is ridiculously good. He also plays PF (now that Odom is gone). Haywood is doing great this season. Mahinmi and marion can guard.

Sure Tyson was was goos, but then explain how the Mavs have kept their opponent's to LOWER average scoring than last season.

The mavs are not the same team as last year though. Lost some very critical pieces mainly chandler which gives up defense, rebounding, and leadership.

You don't have to lecture me on what this team has lost. But, defensively, we are 6th in league.

Lakers.

We now have Ramon Sessions as point guard!

While I agree, the season series is 2-1, and the Bulls got incredibly lucky in the last 2.2 seconds...

not trying to lecture you, just making a point haha. They're also 20th in scoring. 1-4 against OKC, 0-2 against Miami, 0-3 against the Lakers. I would not put my money on Dallas. Not saying that they aren't a good team. I believe they are a very good team. Just would not pick them if I had to put money on it.
