2011 NBA CFs and Finals

Very unbelievable, the 2011 NBA playoffs is the most cliffhanger ever I have seen since the 2007 NBA playoffs.  As my recall back in the 2007 NBA playoffs, I picked the then-defending NBA champion Miami Heat and league-best 67-win Dallas Mavericks to return to the NBA Finals.  Both were quickly eliminated from the first round playoffs.

Now, my top four NBA teams (two-time defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers, defending East champion Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic and West-leading San Antonio Spurs) were stunningly eliminated from the first two rounds of the 2011 NBA playoffs.  Entering the conference finals and upcoming NBA Finals, there are five teams left with the Game 7 of the West Semifinals between Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies.  The Thunder-Grizzlies Game 7 is being played on ABC right now.

Eastern Conference Finals

1. Chicago Bulls (62-20) vs. 2. Miami Heat (58-24)

Most of the NBA experts predict that the Heat is now favorites to win the East Final series.  Honestly, although I am rooting for the Bulls, I agree with the NBA experts' predictions that the Heat will most likely win the East Finals to advance to the first NBA Finals in five years.  Yuck!  Go Bulls bumping the evil Heat's Big Three and Company in laughter!!!  Of course, I always despise Dwyane Wade so much because of his egos!

However, on the other side, supposed Rajon Rondo was healthy without an elbow injury AND Celtics had not sent Kendrick Perkins to the Thunder in mid-February, then the Celtics would definitely have won the series over the Heat in 5 or 6 games.  They could have advanced to the third NBA Finals in the last four seasons.

Western Conference Finals

3. Dallas Mavericks (57-25) vs. 4. Oklahoma City Thunder (55-27)/8. Memphis Grizzlies (46-36) winner

I am rooting against the Mavericks because they embarrassingly humiliated my Lakers in the West Semifinals!  Of course, I am still MAD at them for killing my Lakers!  However, I don't see that either of the Thunder and Grizzlies will get past the Mavericks.  Based on the veteran experiences, I know that that Mavs most likely will win the West Finals in 4 or 5 games to advance to the second NBA Finals in the franchise history.  Both Thunder and Grizzlies have a lot of players younger than 25 years of age.

NBA Finals

Both Bulls and Heat have better overall records than the Mavericks' record.  With homecourt advantage, either Bulls or Heat will most likely win the NBA Finals.  (More than 75% of the home teams have won the NBA Finals.)  The Bulls already have six NBA titles; Heat has one in 2006.  Why not Mavs should win the first NBA championship in the franchise history?  And it is the Mavs' time to take its REVENGE on the most evil Heat team by beating them to win its first NBA championship!  Go Mavs killing the evil and egoistic Heat for its first NBA title!!!!!

2011 NBA Conference Semifinal Predictions

First off, I was very stunned that the West top-seeded San Antonio Spurs and heavily favored Orlando Magic were ousted by the heavily underdogs, Memphis Grizzlies and Atlanta Hawks, in the first-round playoffs respectively.  After Spurs exiting, the defending two-time NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers have a better chance to have the homecourt advantage throughout at least West Finals and advance to the fourth straight NBA Finals.  Unfortunately, Lakers will most likely have tougher times without homecourt advantage if they eventually face either Chicago Bulls or Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.  Both Bulls and Heat have better overall records than Lakers.  Note that more than 75% of the home teams have won the NBA Finals series.  As the Lakers fan, I feel like I'm saying "Yuck!"

However, neither Bulls nor Heat will able to get past the defending East champion Boston Celtics, anyway.  With the Magic exiting in shock, I see that only Celtics have more advantages than any of the other three East teams.  Celtics have a number of more experienced veterans that have already have been to the NBA Finals in the past: Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Glen Davis and Shaquille O'Neal.  Although I despise the Celtics very much, I still pick them to advance to the NBA Finals for the third time in the last four seasons based on the veteran experiences and secret tricks of defense.  LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will NEVER have any answer for the Celtics in laughter!  Celtics still dare to kill the Heat with secret tricks of defense especially involving KG and Rondo, although Kendrick Perkins is no longer with the Celtics team.  (Perkins is now with the Oklahoma City Thunder team since the February trade.)

Since the Magic were eliminated in the first round, the Bulls have a better chance to advance to the first Eastern Conference Finals in 13 years.  Last time, they advanced to the EC Finals en route to the 6th NBA championship in 1998.  At that time, they had Michael Jordan, who I always despised so much due to his egos.  I still see that the young and inexperienced Bulls team most likely will lose the EC Finals series to the more experienced veteran Celtics team in 5 or 6 games.

Here are my predictions of the 2011 NBA Conference Semifinals.

1. Chicago Bulls vs. 5. Atlanta Hawks = Bulls in 7
2. Miami Heat vs. 3. Boston Celtics = Celtics in 6

2. Los Angeles Lakers vs. 3. Dallas Mavericks = Lakers in 7
4. Oklahoma City Thunder vs. 8. Memphis Grizzlies = Thunder in 5

Conference Finals predictions coming up!  Enjoy your NBA days!  Smile

2011 NBA Playoff Predictions

First off, I must say that the Chicago Bulls are the most surprising NBA team that have officially clinched the NBA's best record at 62-20.  Originally, I thought that the San Antonio Spurs were supposed to clinch the NBA's best record with at least 64 wins while they were leading the league's overall record after the All-Star break.  Honestly, I still believe that the Bulls are the most underdog top-seeded team ever because they are still inexperienced and too young.  Bulls, you watch out of the Orlando Magic and Boston Celtics, both teams have numbers of experienced veteran players such as Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu, Jameer Nelson, Jason Richardson, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo.  They have played in the postseasons for some years.  Most of the Bulls players do not have much experience getting past the first round series in the last five seasons.  Sorry, Bulls fans....but just be realistic about your team being the most overrated team ever, especially younger ones including Derrick Rose.  I know that Tom Thibodeau is one of the best defensive coaches but the player chemistry is a main concern for the playoffs.

As the longtime Lakers fan, I must be very honest about my team.  I am very disappointed in the Lakers because most of the players are LAZY with no motivations.  They don't seem they don't care about the playoff seeds, huh?  Give me a break!  Since they are No. 2 seed in the West, I see that they are going to have much tougher times this year than they had in the previous two seasons.  They won't have any homecourt advantage after the West Semifinals.  Yes, I do see that they will have much tougher times than they did in 2008 in which they eventually lost the NBA Finals series to the Celtics in six games.  I'm totally disappointed that the Lakers have never clinched the NBA's overall best record!  Damn you, Lakers!!!!!  I don't mean to be negative, but my true feelings about my team who is so lazy and lacks motivation.  I know why Kobe Bryant is so frustrated and seems unhappy with his teammates.  I can understand why he had a bad temper when he angrily spat at a referee and threw a towel onto the floor in the Lakers' victory over the Spurs last week.  Of course, I would feel the same way as if I were in his same boat.  I would scold and criticize my teammates for lacks of motivations in winning in order to clinch the NBA's overall record and homecourt advantage throughout playoffs!  To Lakers players except Kobe, you are idiots because you are totally lazy!!!!  Yes, I would get mad at them as if I were Kobe!  Because of lacks of motivation, defense and chemistry, I hate to see my team most likely not repeating its third title.  Because of no homecourt advantage, I see that Lakers most likely will lose the series to the Spurs in the West Finals.  Yuck!  Very disappointing.  Yes, honestly, I do want my team to win its third NBA title in a row.....of course!  However, in reality, they have 50-50 chance to win the third straight NBA championship because of lacks of homecourt advantages and players' lacks of motivations and defense.

Here are my UNBIASED predictions:

Eastern Conference
1. Chicago Bulls vs. 8. Indiana Pacers = Bulls in 5
2. Miami Heat vs. 7. Philadelphia 76ers = Heat in 6
3. Boston Celtics vs. 6. New York Knicks = Celtics in 6
4. Orlando Magic vs. 5. Atlanta Hawks = Magic in 6

Western Conference
1. San Antonio Spurs vs. 8. Memphis Grizzlies = Spurs in 4
2. Los Angeles Lakers vs. 7. New Orleans Hornets = Lakers in 6
3. Dallas Mavericks vs. 6. Portland Trail Blazers = Mavericks in 5
4. Oklahoma City Thunder vs. 5. Denver Nuggets = Thunder in 7

1. Bulls vs. 4. Magic = Magic in 5 (Bulls will have NO answer for the Hulk monster, two-time DPOY Dwight Howard.  Based on veteran experiences, I do see that the Magic team will most likely outplay the inexperienced top-seed and upset them in only five games.)
2. Heat vs. 3. Celtics = Celtics in 6

1. Spurs vs. 4. Thunder = Spurs in 6
2. Lakers vs. 3. Mavericks = Lakers in 7

East: 3. Celtics vs. 4. Magic = Magic in 6 (Celtics will have NO answer for Dwight Howard, either!)
West: 1. Spurs vs. 2. Lakers = Spurs in 6 based on its homecourt advantage.  YUCK!

Spurs vs. Magic = Spurs in 7 based on its homecourt advantage, although they will have much tougher times with the Hulk monster DH.  Like I have stated in the past, no team has answer for the DH Hulk monster.

Five NBA Games on Xmas Day

There are five NBA games on Christmas Day.

Chicago Bulls at New York Knicks
I choose the Bulls-Knicks as the best, closest game ever.
Prediction: Knicks 111, Bulls 108

Boston Celtics at Orlando Magic
I would love to see the good Magic enjoying to humiliate the most evil and baddest Celtics with a wonderful triple-digit blowout!  The Celtics will have NO answer for the NBA's best center, "Hulk" monster Dwight Howard, and Magic's best three-point shooting in laughter!  I know that the Magic acquire three new players, although Hedo Turkoglu is back with his old team, where he was once named to the NBA's most improved player of the year in 2007-08.  Personally, I am not sold on Gilbert Arenas and rather retain Jameer Nelson in the starting line-up in the point guard position.  Jameer has been playing on the same team with Dwight for a very long time.  The Celtics are truly LOSER, period!
Prediction: "Heavenly" Magic 115, "Reddish-Eyed" Devil Celtics 88 in laughter!!!!!!  BOO, BOO, BOO meanest Celtics!  Go Magic killing the sickest Celtics in laughter!
Tongue outSealedMoney mouth

Miami Heat at Los Angeles Lakers
I strictly hope that the Lakers must better start to enjoy humiliating the most overrated Big 3 and Co. team with a wonderful triple-digit blowout!
Kobe Bryant-Pau Gasol-Lamar Odom >>> LeBron James-Dwyane Wade-Chris Bosh in laughter!
Prediction: Lakers 106, Heat 73 in laughter!!!!!  Go Lakers killing the hateful Heat!
Tongue outSealedMoney mouth

Denver Nuggets at Oklahoma City Thunder
Prediction: Nuggets 109, Thunder 105

Portland Trail Blazers at Golden State Warriors
Prediction: Trail Blazers 104, Warriors 95

Merry Christmas to y'all and your families!
