So yeah....I'm not a fan of othier team(O RLY!?!?) and I'm not a fan of rematches much either, I like new blood and new faces, and would have loved to see Orland-Suns, or Thunder-Cleveland or something zany.
But really these playoffs combined with some tough losses and first round exit by Blazers, were just horrible. 3-4 series sweeps? That 2nd round was done in a flash. I bet Stern was just cringing at the loss of money there. The semi-finals looked like another round of blowouts/sweeps(and were for Orlando for the most part) but these teams managed to put up a little fight towards the end, especially the Suns. Were these possibly the worst play-offs in recent memory?
Personally, I can't wait for the Free Agent Madness, the Draft(Blzrs moving up?), Summer/Training Camp, and my other great passion in sports, Football, namely Oregon State(Rodgers brothers!!!).
