I'd love to do one of these,

I'd love to do one of these, but then it'll influence who I'm rooting for, but I will make some predictions.

I think the Nuggets will upset the Lakers. I know this is a matchup everyone thinks the Lakers will beast in, but I think that Nuggets inside D won't be bad enough to let Bynum have a field day, and the Nuggets have too much depth and youth, they can run the Lakers out of the building because of their speed, and we saw the Lakers look slow and sluggish last season against Dallas. I know this is a different Lakers team, and Kobe has two good knees this time, however I'll still go with the Nuggets, their three point shooting and fastbreak offense will be the difference.

I'm surprised no one had any love for Philly. They match up great with Chicago and have major ties to the CHI (Turner, Iggy, Doug Collins). I think ET is gonna be the x-factor of the series, I don't see Hamilton being able to stop him from getting into the lane when he wants. Defensively I like Holliday defending Rose and Iggy on Deng. Brand & Boozer also should match up well. Where I see Philly giving them problems is the 5 spot. Noah & Asik are clearly the better players, but Hawes & Vucevic are both jump shooters & will take them out of the paint where they are most effective challenging shots and grabbing boards. Off the bench Lou & Thad get the edge over Watson & Gibson. Call me crazy, but I think Philly steals thi1s series.

Tol, you could still just use the most recent standings by searching through the archives on this site, and do the playoffs like that.
