    Wrong.

    1. Both 6 seeds are considered teams able to win in the first round.

    2. I've seen nothing this season to suggest the Lakers can eliminate the Suns and it wouldn't happen even if I was given 15 suggestions or more.

    3. I don't care about people picking the Wizards.. they have some favorable matchups and it's 4-5. Since when can a 5 beat a 4 and it's considered "an upset"?

    Because I could've swore #5 Wizards beat a #4 last year...

    The five being favored is NOT something new.


    The "Lakers over the Suns" is without question the most unlikely out of all of the favorable bottom seeds (Clips, Pacers, Wiz, Lakers).

    Go on ahead and book it.

    Clippers over Nuggets isn't really an upset.

    Since the Clippers have the better record and home court advantage against the Nuggets.

    In all logic they should be the higher seed, but due to the current division winner format they aren't.

    So it's no upset if they win.

    Anthony picked the Lakers to go to the West Finals in November [funny]

    So therefore he's obligated to pick them to at least advance one round now.

    My comments about the Nets really are really somewhat of an isolated situation. Someone in particular had been overrating them since last season and my reasons for why "they aren't a top 3 team in the east" still stand strong today.

    True.. I wouldn't pick the Wizards to beat the Heat for the same reasons I wouldn't pick New Jersey to beat the Heat.

    I wont brag or be dissapointed regardless of how the series goes since I feel it could really go either way.. but I do think it will and should be Cavs-Pistons second round.

    I did too but I switched Indiana and Detroit pretty much... I thought Indy would win the central and #1 seed- thought Detroit would finish 5th and Cavs 4th. Instead.. Detroit 1, Indy 6, Cavs 4th.

    imo its a smart strategy by phil.. phil knows kobe has to play nearly the WHOLE game.. so instead of wearing him out, let him take it slow, get his teammates involved while still being on the floor and getting a breather while the lakers keep it close. then in the 4th qtr at about the 5 minute part, start taking over and possibly steal the game at the end. brilliant

    I like how the lakers are involing everybody.

    Kobe should be more aggressive though, he can rape Barbosa.
