    thanks- damn that sucks- would rather have spurs and OKC on Warrioirs bracket..
    I think they should change that (1 seed should always play the lower seed) that advances

    i disagree. if you're a top seed, youre being rewarding by the playing the worst seeds along the way. no reason to change that whatsoever

    but what if the 7 seed upsets the 2 seed? We are still playing 4/5 Seed which is better than the 7 seed. wouldnt it be better to play the 7th seed that upseted the 2 seed (Since 7 seed is worser than the 4 or 5 seed

    that doesn't really matter. thats not something you control. thats also something that does not happen often. The brackets are again setup playing the worst seeds.

    Because chaos is fun and marketable, see: March Madness.

    you are right. At the end of the day (to be the champions you have to beat whoever is put in front of you) This drama from the 4th to the 8th is going to be crazy...

    I just want them to beat the Spurs. First or second round. Jason Vorhees can't live forever.

    I want Minny, NOP in our bracket

    I want OKC, Portland, GS in the other bracket

    Utah and SAS, I can't decide.

    I'm with Clutch .. . . I don't fear any team.
    So it is good to speculate on what teams we will face

    I just hope we destroy anyone in our path to winning the NBA Championship!

    May we stay healthy, may our shots kiss the inside of the net, and may we show no mercy!

    Definitely would appreciate the first bracket...although I think its more likely NOP drops out, with the Nuggets taking the 8th seed and the Jazz slotting into 6th.

    Though the "Revenge" tour would make a title even sweeter.

    I don't care. Just get the regular season over with. Watching Rockets win is boring. Need playoff intensity.

    The best scenario would be having the Warriors, Thunder, Spurs and Blazers in the same quarter bracket

    Hoping for spurs and OKC to be 6th and 7th and completely out of our bracket.

    I do not care who else is what.

    Even though I think the ROCKETS can beat anyone.... wouldnt matter..... but just want the easiest road.

    This article doesn’t account for the fact that we haven’t seen much of a butler Minnesota.
