Hope Boston win this year. But I'm thinkin it'll be Dallas-Miami in the finals and I hope Dallas wins if thats the case because I'd love to see Kidd get a ring before he retires.

Man I got Dallas and Chicago in the finals. Derrick Rose is just a beast, and when he's on, no team can beat the Bulls imo. Dallas is playing solid, and good for them. I've always liked Dallas, and think they have a ton of talent. The addition of Chandler helped out a little bit, and Dirk is playing out of his mind. I'm rockin my Jason Terry jersey today and hoping they pull off the sweep. I was in Dallas a couple years ago, and they don't get too into the Mavs. Everybody I talked to was much more interested in Longhorn football or the Cowboys. Hopefully they can win the title and change that around.

Boston won last night which was huge for them. I think coming back from 2-0 will be too much for them though. Miami is just playing better right now, and they've come together. They are a tough out, but hopefully Rondo will be alright and the Celts can come together. Shaq can be a force on the inside, as the Heat do not have a dominant center. If Shaq is healthy enough and can stay out there he can be a factor.

Go Grizzlies btw!! Nothing like an 8 side putting it all on the line and playing hard. Zach Randolph and Mike Connely are really having coming out parties in the playoffs. It's great because ESPN only talks about five or six teams in the NBA. Mike was a great pg that one year at Ohio St. and always had solid potential.

Bolts vs Bruins will be a good series, but I'd have to put my money on Boston. Tim Thomas is god like.

Anyways, it's clear that the CANUCKS ARE TAKING THE CUP HOME BABY


As for bball, it'll be an OKC vs Heat final. I have had my money riding on the Heat to win it all since November, too much firepower.

Everyone is picking Boston...then they'll say something like "I like Tampa's offense", almost as an afterthought.

It's ok, nobody gave them a shot in 2004 either...

Honestly, I didn't read past the first sentence in your post and just assumed that you were talking about Hockey Playoffs.

I pick Boston to make it to the cup final vs. Vancouver...I like Tampa's offense A LOT tons of firepower and not to mention role players such as Bergenheim stepping in and scoring points when needed as well...but in the playoffs it all comes down to goaltending and for as well as Roloson has been playing, Tim Thomas is the best goalie in the league hands down....It'll be Boston in 6 or 7 but I wouldn't be surprised if it was the other way around as well.

As for the Nucks, Luongo is a Vezina candidate, Kesler is hands down one of the top 3 best two way player in the league and the best player in the playoffs thus far, The Sedins (even though they're slumping) are back to back NHL scoring leaders and the Nucks defence core is one of the strongest, if not the strongest D-Core in the league..When you have a top 4 Dman on most teams in Keith Ballard making 4+ million but sitting in the press box, u know you've got a strong D-Core

Roloson is playing OUT OF HIS MIND right now! It's ridiculous how dominant he's been in the playoffs. If he can keep it up, I don't see ANYONE beating the Lightning. That's really the only variable that means anything. The Bolts are gonna get their goals regardless of what line is in the game, it's just a matter of Rolo stopping the other guys.

The NHL HATES Tampa discarding their Golden children they way that they did. Some of those penalty calls were VERY suspect. I expect to see more of the same in this next series.

But our boys are durable. The NHL would be pissed if Tampa got past Boston, but I'd love to finish the season with the Canucks! That's a good match up.

If TB ends up going all the way this year, Roloson gets playoff MVP for sure. I remember when he was like 37 and the Oilers made that cup run, everyone was saying how crazy it was considering how old he is. 5 years later he's doing the same thing.

Lol I hear what you're saying about the officiating, i've seen A LOT of shady calls and non-calls occur throughout the playoffs but I don't think the NHL hates tampa.. Gary Bettman LOVES his American market (which explains his refusal to move Phoenix back to Canada despite the millions of dollars in revenue the Yotes lose yearly)

Tampa versus Canucks would definitely be an exciting cup final and I think i'd enjoy that more than a Boston final simply cus Lightning have such a high powered offence it would make for a more entertaining series.

Have you by any chance been able to catch any of the games in the Sharks-Red Wings series???? That series has been nothing but fireworks I'm excited for Game 7 tomorrow!!!

BigG, it'll DEFINITELY be a Grizzlies vs. Hawks final...I'm pretty sure everyone had that prediction heading into the regular season laugh.gif

Series tied at 2!!!

Tim Thomas is gonna break...

That has to be one of the biggest choke jobs/greatest comebacks in NBA Playoff history. OKC was up 15 points with four minutes to play. Dirk Nowitzki went nuts, and took over that game. That was legendary, and OKC is all but done now. I don't see them going back to Dallas after losing like that and putting up any kind of effort. I mean, they'll try, but they're going to get blown out in game 5. They were so close to making it an even series, and they led the whole game up until the last minute. They were up, but always let Dallas just hang around. It seemed as if Dallas was always one run away from taking over. Apparantely that run was in the last four minutes when it counted. Great game and it seems to be Dallas' year.

Good win yesterday, I've got the Lightning winning game seven!!!

goodluck to ur boys in Vancouver on wednesday, they're desperately gonna need it...

this is serious business!!! we don't fuck around in vancouver!!!

You guys blew through San Jose!

I'm not counting my chickens yet on getting out of Boston. The Bruins are a GREAT rebound team. They will definitely come out trying to steal the early momentum...my hope is that our boys stay active on the boards, and ride out the early surge.

There is NO WAY either team is going out without a fight. Shit is gonna be ON!!!
