They're being overhyped because they're on a 14 game win streak. They were a slightly above average team all season but because of the win streak they've "all of the sudden" catapulted themselves into the second best team in the east slot in many eyes. I'm not buying it for a second. The last two years they've closed the season strong. They always do. They'll get swamped in the playoffs.. as always. My homie TK put it best when he said "They're going nowhere, the playoffs are a different animal." Teams with a presence on the inside go far in the playoffs. Very far. You can point to Kristic all you want, but he's one player in the frontcourt rotation. That's it. One guy. I hate when people respond "oh but they have Kristic" when I say they don't have a presence on the inside. One fuckin player changes nothing. Yeah, no longer than 6 games. Cavs would win 4-2 at worst. It's apparent that you don't know shit about playoff brackets because for the Cavs and Nets to meet they both need to make the eastern finals. Both teams will be eliminated in the second round by Detroit and Miami, respectively. I'm tired of hearing that too. They'll have Shaq and Wade this year and they'll lose to a Detroit team who has done nothing since but trade Darko basically. You guys are forever hanging onto the past. Let it go man. He's still almost a 20 and 10 guy. Not many players can get you 20 and 10.. only 4 in the league can. True, Shaq isn't getting 20 and 10, but he's only off by 1. And still shooting a high percentage. You're putting words in my mouth. I didn't say he's the same Shaq that dominated the league- cousin, I been said Tim Duncan was the most dominant player in the league WELL over a year ago. You said stop acting like this years Shaq and last years Shaq are the same person. I'm sorry to break it to ya, but they aren't that much different.
