The Playoff Somewhat Payoff

 
Yes!!! Made it another year to get to this point of the year: NBA playoffs!! Can’t lie. NBA Playoffs over any other playoffs but I established that already. So instead I’m goin to go on a ledge and do something I’ve never done before: make playoff pics. Now bear with me cuz this ain’t your usual NBA playoff picks these are jus some vague ass sure fire statements I made you can prolly bet nothing more than a warm beer on. So crack that 40 open and get yo read on.
 
Lakers won’t get swept
I’ve thought about this post loooong before Kobe took that fall. But something tells me this team won’t get destroyed as bad ppl think. Now don’t take that as they will win the series cuz going against the Spurs in the first round after San Antone got busted last yr against OKC will be a tough task. Lake show been struggling all yr and they seemed to have gotten their act together before losing Fearless Leader. They already beat the Spurs  earlier in the week and I think Dwight Howard is motivatd to take this team over for the time being. If he’s not then he’s ready to put on one hell of an audition tape, hopefully for the Rockets. I expect that good work to continue in the postseason.
 
Heat/Knicks will be in conf finals
 Ever since Melo came to NY that franchise has been completely different. This season has been especially remarkable. They are the 2 seed entering the playoffs, a lot of their stars are healthy coming into postseason play and even gave the Heat a run for their money a little. That latter statement is important cause last season’s 5 game sweep was too devastating of an end for that team. The Heat seem invincible coming off a 27 game winning streak beating folks left and right with or without all of the new Big 3. I mean who else in the East really matters. Celtics are a yr away frm rebuilding, Bulls have no Derrick Rose, Brooklyn is not that playoff strong to me and every other team is irrelevant and unmentionable. Also this won’t be a quick 5 or 6 game series. Get your DVR ready cuz this is going the full 7 games. So there will be plenty of chances for a classic Lebron/Melo matchup for the Conference Finals and you can bet the 6 pack on that.
 
Bulls and Heat are going 7 games
Both teams will be coming off lackluster opponents (Heat vs. Bucks; Bulls vs. Nets) so expect them to really get it going. The thing is since chicago is technically a lower seed they may be pushing the pedal a little harder and willl be warmed enough to take on the defending champions. And then there is this little problem with whether or not Derrick Rose is gonna play but that shit wont be happening as I mentioned earlier. The Heat may be sort of sluggish after barely wielding any effort in sweeping the Bucks. This means they will definitely let some games get close but that is not what you want to do with a team such as Chicago. Just like last year when the Pacers gave them their wake up call, expect the Bulls to do the same to the Heat. The same team that ended their historic winning streak will definitely look to put a championship streak before it even begins.
 
Spurs will find a way… to fuck it off
Sry San Antone, out of all the Central Texas sports teams (Mavs, Cowboys, Longhorns, Rangers) you are my fav fan base but you will not be makin that shine for a fifth title. Your drive for five is gonna crash. Now don’t get me wrong y’all have a good squad but letting go of Stephen Jackson gave the Nuggets an extra confidence boost. Signing T-Mac was nice but everybody keeps thinking of the T-Mac in Addidas commercials and hittin 3’s consecutively. That shit aint happenin anymore bruh. The Thunder still have Westbrook/Durant and Kevin Martin is not bad. He’s no James Harden (who by the way needs to get MVP for taking the Rockets up a notch but i’ll shut up) but he is sufficient enough.
 
So those are my picks. Feel free to comment on whether you like them or you think I need to stop sniffing glue. Hit me up with feedback at:
