I can't call it. I say Chicago/Miami for the Eastern Finals but I could easily be wrong. West, I have no clue. Most of these teams are great. Denver is interesting, they have one of the best records since the All-Star break and the best winning percentage of all teams that made a trade mid-season. Denver/OKC should be a fun one to watch.

1. The west is going to be fun
I see an upset, Portland over Dallas. And OKC/Denver will be exciting.

I have to admit Memphis may finally win their first ever playoff game against my beloved Spurs, as they match up well. They won't win the series.

New York has a puncher's chance against Boston. I don't see the Knicks's playing good team defense in the near or distant future, but Boston lost a lot with the trade of Perkins, and New York could outscore them.

In the second round, San Antonio will have their hands full with OKC. The winner of that series wins the west.

I think Chicago takes the east, and the winner of the west wins the whole thing.

3. Both OKC and Denver is interesting for the same reason
They both made trade and played very well since making their trades. I would of really liked to see both of these teams in their current roster the entire season. Part of the reason why I have no clue who will win the west.

2. Celts/Knicks looks like the best one in the East
plus it's Boston vs. NYC!
