From 8 to ??? (The Anti-Hype Playoff Preview)
In a matter of 24 hours, damn near everything changed in the East with word that KG's possibly/probably out for the rest of the postseason. All of a sudden, what was a possible Cleveland/Boston rematch now has taken on a 'pass the crown and get out of our way' feel. Something akin to Spinks/Ali when Ali was more or less on his way out, only he forgot the 'retire gracefully and save what's left of your face and all that' part. However, I don't think it's that cut and dry. Neither will be what is the traditional NBA Playoff preview from yours truly. 16 teams. 8 in each conference. I'm done reviewing series and all that, because I thought up something else overnight. I will rank the teams in descending order, from 8 to 1 for each conference. The first four will obviously be the ones that aren't around after the first two weekends of basketball.
8) #6 Philadelphia
7) #7 Chicago
6) #4 Atlanta
5) #8 Detroit
4) #5 Miami
3) #3 Orlando
I'll get to this...tomorrow morning. ;-)
8) #6 Dallas
7) #8 Utah
6) #7 New Orleans
5) #5 Houston
4) #4 Portland
3) #3 San Antonio
Same thing here...tomorrow morning, you'll get your Final Four and Finals predicts. So get "hyped".
