  1. Listen…. there will be excuses on why other teams win and other teams lose … what i wish and what most people who loves basketball and watches them is that there will be no OFFICIATING factor in these playoff games and that is all we want… a good fair game … as to every speculation on who will win the east or the west yadda yadda…. lets see these teams play and rebound back from losses and have winning streaks and just enjoy the game and the competition

  2. "Was it a product of Lowry & Derozan getting it done or Wall not getting it done in the 4th quarter?!"

    Wat?! bro what you talking about man?! I'm out! this nigga is tripping!

  3. The 76ers look great and they've been great heading into the playoffs. But the Raptors are favorites. The Pacers were beating the best NBA teams all season and have a great shot at knocking out the Cavs in the first round and hopefully Lebron leaves that horrific team who starts Kevin Love at center. Coach Lue needs to be a coach no more

  4. Alot of these teams have weaknesses
    Philly lacks experience which can be their downfall
    Raptors have a backcourt who sometimes can't step up when they are really needed especially Lowry
    Celtics injuries which made their young talented players play much more (became a gamble team)
    Cavs just became inexperienced besides Lebron, Love and got worse from their trade by going young
    But still these 4 I see having the best chance to the finals if they overcome those weaknesses.

  5. Fuck the process, those years of bottom ranking are forgotten already? I understand why fans would be excited, but to buy the “process” slogan is cheating yourself.

  6. Raptors are the best team in the east get over it, they will turn around and say they called raptors all along. Like stop loosing credibility by changing your opinions every day
