Anybody really pick Dallas? That's the only one I missed. I tried to get and edge by picking Atlanta in 6 and Orlando in 5 but missed each of those.
I was gone this weekend--Sorry, I didn't know we started on Sunday. Anyway, for what it's worth.
Lakers in 6
Nuggets in 6
Cleveland in 6---? Can Atlanta match up like last year?
Orlando in 7

FIRST ROUND
WEST
1. L.A. vs. 8. Utah = Lakers in 6
4. Port vs. 5. Hou = Rockets in 6
3. San Ant vs. 6. Dallas = Spurs in 6
2. Denver vs. 7. N.O. = Nuggets in 6

EAST
1. Clev vs. 8. Det = Cavs in 5
4. Atla vs. 5. Miami =Hawks in 6
3. Orl vs. 6. Philly = Magic in 4
2. Bost vs. 7. Chi = Celts in 7



I didn't do too bad. Got Lakers, though one game over, same with Cavs, as with Nuggets. Hawks one game over and Magic two games under. Got Spurs wrong, though games were right ( :| ). Got Rockets and Celts spot on.



SECOND ROUND
WEST
1. L.A. vs. 5. Hou = Rockets in 6
2. Denver vs. 6. Dallas = Nuggets in 6

EAST
1. Clev vs. 4. Atla = Cavs in 5
3. Orl vs. 2. Bost = Magic in 6

geez migya's picking the rockets is as ridiculous (and blatantly obvious) as xbays choosing of the bulls in the 1st round. I wonder if yesterdays result had anything to do with it....Karma will embarrass you migya (as it did to xbay), mark my words :mrgreen:

I was going to choose the Rockets anyway, I think they will actually beat Lakers inside, not just with Yao, but I see Scola having a huge series and really, he'll have to for them to win. It is risky pick to say the least, as Lakers had a really bad game first game and might not play anywhere near that bad again

how so? really, did anyone think this was more than just a way to have fun by seeing how close we'd come to predicting the outcome of the playoffs? it's not like there is a prize for winning.

No I agree, E-man, I'm sort of joking about the joke. It's just that we tried to make this elaborate point system. Maybe the fact that we couldn't get together on that and that so many of us,( myself included with the second round, when I came home Monday) picked late is evidence that we are just trying to have fun with this.

gotcha.

honestly, i think it's pretty interesting whether points are involved or not. just reading and thinking about whatever reasoning people have for choosing the winner of each respective series and how many games it takes is at least something to do while we wait to hear what moves our beloved warriors are gonna make.

Man, not only am i so confident on my predictions, but i think i might get all four of the series with the right amount of games. This almost reminds me of the time like 8 years ago when the WWE accidently posted the winners before the fights occurred and i betted with my wresling neighbor fan to win all the time.
