NBA playoff predictions?

My vote is for the Miami Heat. They look invincible again this year.

I live in an NBA city & honestly have lost interest in the sport.
Too busy being depressed by the Cubbies already sliding to last place

I think it will be a Heat<->OKC rematch but this time OKC triumphs.

I'm glad the Heat didn't break the Lakers' record of 33 straight wins. But if I went to Vegas, my money has to go on the Heat.

Three overtimes yesterday. Highest score ever for the franchise. Never seen that before. The Bulls looked good.

I predict that today will be the last time the Lakers are mentioned, but will not be the last time that the TV guys talk about their #1 subject~Kobe.

Love the Bulls, with D'Rose maybe (he did himself a disservice with how he handled his rehab)

It's the Heat for 2 more years until they have contract issues. Thunder....maybe.

Glad to see the Celtics get one win. I'm a lifetime Boston fan, but haven't watched much NBA ball since the Larry Bird days. In fact I only watched the last 4 minutes and OT of this game. That will probably do me for the year.

Nothing to be sorry about, I don't either. But they are making NY squirm a bit. Now 3-2 going back to Boston.

Nope. Miami has been "preordained". Nike has already invested too much in $$$ new line of LeBron "2-time NBA Champ" shoes

Nike has a shoe ready for '2-Time Champion' LeBron James - NBA - Sporting News
