    I met Avery Johnson a couple days ago and chatted about the Rockets and the playoffs. I asked who would he least like to see (as a Rocket) in the playoffs. His response was the Spurs. Avery was super chill, very friendly and talkative - really nice guy!

    So if the Pelicans win and the Thunder win we would play the Pelicans?

    As much as it kills me, I'll be rooting for the Jazz- I think we match up better. My guess is it takes us 5 to get rid of Minny and the Jazz/Thunder series goes seven. Hopefully they're gassed and we can coast to the wcf

    This whole time I was thinking reseeding. Well that's kind of weak. Pardon my ignorance, but is this a change that was recently made or been here forever? If so, knowing David Silver, he probably will change this up pretty quick. There should be more of a "gift" to being a number one seed, and reseeding definitely falls in that category.

    It’s always been this way as far as I know. I believe in the NFL they do adjust the 2nd round games so that the top seed will always face the lowest seed remaining.
