Cavs in 5. Bulls have been

Cavs in 5. Bulls have been doing some nice things recently.
Magic in 6. Sorry Bobcats, but be happy just making the Playoffs
Atlanta in 6. This Heat team is worse then last years imo
Boston in 5. The Bogut loss crushed this Team, they could've pushed it to a possible 7 game series

Cleveland/Chicago- Cavs

Cleveland/Chicago- Cavs sweep in 4. Too much talent v. a young developing team.

Orlando/Charlotte- Magics in 6. Howard is going to be tough to defend and Orlando is a very solid team. I wouldn't be completely shocked if Charlotte pulls something but I think Orlando is too good.

Atlanta/Miami- ATL in 6. Unless Wade plays out of his mind like he did v. the Mavs a few years back, ATL has it on lock.

Boston/Milwaukee- Boston in 5. Like Rubio said, losing Bogut is a killer. Not to mention, BOS is just too experienced not to win this matchup.

Cleveland/Chicago- Cavs

Cleveland/Chicago- Cavs in 6. Bulls in the playoffs are a different team and there is no one on Cavs who can stop Rose

Orlando/Charlotte- Magics in 5. I would have said sweep but Jackson will shoot them to at least one win

Atlanta/Miami- ATL in 6. ATL willl not play a team that they are favored as hard as they would as an underdog

Boston/Milwaukee- Boston in 4. I like the Bucks but without Bogut, they are no match for a veteran experience team like Boston.

Cleveland/Chicago- Cavs in

Cleveland/Chicago- Cavs in 6. If the Bulls stay healthy I believe they could steal 2 games in the series. Remember last year? Noah is playing out of his mind.

Orlando/Charlotte- Magic in 6. This should be a good series but I am not as high on the Bobcats as a lot of people are on here.

Atlanta/Miami- Heat in 6. Have you guys noticed how great the Heat have been playing lately? Wade is gonna will this team to the next round.

Boston/Milwaukee- Celts in 6. Even without Bogut the Bucks will push the Celts to 6 games.

Cavs/Bulls - Cavs in 5, 1

Cavs/Bulls - Cavs in 5, 1 game for the Bulls Rose probably plays great and the Cavs not peaking w/all the guys playing together yet.
Magic/Bobcats - Magic in 6 too much Howard, Lewis and Magic depth here.
Hawks/Heat - Hawks in 5 this Hawks team is much better than last years, Wade needs help.
Celtics/Bucks - Celtics in 5 the Bucks will face a diff. animal in the playoffs and no Bogut really hurts them.

I can damn near guarantee

I can damn near guarantee you that LeBron can stop Rose if he has to cover him. He can keep up with him, he's 6'8" with long arms and weighs more that some centers. Rose is a freak, LeBron is a BEAST.

I know what you mean. They

I know what you mean. They go through stretches where they look fearless and confident. And then they go on 10 game losing streaks where they look scared and lost. Injuries have played a big part of their woes this year but, when healthy, they have looked great.

And Noah is an underrated balller. His basketball IQ is very high.

STILL A FAN JUST SURE ABOUT THIS SERIES

Exactly its times were we look like we can beat anyone in the league, then we get hurt and look like the Nets and go 2-14.

But i still look on the bright side we got the most underrated franchise player in the league in D.rose

Noah,Deng and Hinrich aren't bad( Which is an understatement) ...

Taj Gibson played great second half basketball this season also...

DRose isn't underrated, he went to the all-star game. People know him.

Yeah I'm a little lost on

Yeah I'm a little lost on how you think D-Rose is underrated. Guy gets talked about as much as he should if not more.

Yeah he was a allstar true

Yeah he was a allstar true but its a difference between allstar level and superstar level...

Example Mo Williams was all-star but he's not superstar

D.Rose is superstar but a lot of people dont think that bcuz they live outside of the chi and dont witness the things he do on a nightly bases like we do...

Cleveland/Chicago - Rose and

Cleveland/Chicago - Rose and Noah are two of my favorite players, but I think the Bulls will get swept.

Orlando/Charlotte - The Bobcats are dangerous. They have plenty of bigs to throw at Howard... Chandler, Mohammed, Diop and Thomas. Magic in 7, but I think this is the upset alert series.

Atlanta/Miami - Atlanta in 6. It won't go 7 like it did last season. Wade's supporting cast has been too inconsistent all season.

Boston/Milwaukee - Boston in 5. Losing Bogut was rough, but they probably would've only won two games with him.
