    Spurs! They play bb the right way, with fundamentals. Plus the NBA hates a small market team.

    I'd like to see a Heat - Blazers finale. If we lost I'd like to say it was to the best in the West.

    I went with Miami. I like to see greatness and it's rare that a team gets a chance to 3-peat let alone appear in four straight finals. I'd also like to see GSW get there because I like Curry as a player.

    Why are so many people hating on the Blazers? Just because they beat us doesn't mean you should hate them. So they beat and now they're worse than the Mavs/Jazz? WTF were they supposed to do - lose on purpose? It's not their fault we suck so much. I actually really like the Blazers. I hope they go far.

    Spurs - Plays basketball the right way.
    Toronto - love an underdog team that wins on scrappiness

    No one is rooting for the Mavs and the Jazz lol.

    Lillard is great and Aldridge is a beast when he's not playing like a little b**** trying to draw every foul. But I don't like Mathews and Mo Williams, and I still think Portland fans are idiots that deserve what they have coming to them.

    The reason they looked to so great (for the umpteenth time) is because they are strongest where the Rockets are weakest (PF, PG, coaching and rebounding). We were able to solve some of the PF and rebounding problems by starting Asik but by then it was too late because we had already lost the first two at at home.

    The Spurs have Parker and Duncan. They will make Lillard and Aldridige actually play defense. Let's see how great they are then when they don't have to save all of their energy for rebounding and scoring. Aldridge had the time of his life abusing a first year starter and players playing out of position, but Timmy is waiting for him with a confident look on his face thinking you ain't gettin that on me big fella.

    In the 2011 finals, this entire bbs became Mavs fans. It was bizarre.

    And this idea that the Blazers getting to the finals makes Houston look better is silly. Nobody will be thinking about the team the Blazers beat in the first round if they win the chip (which is something I will bet anything against).

    I still can't believe that I hated the Heat so much that I actually rooted for the Cuban & the Mavs. That's a dark period in my life!:mad::grin:

    Like Mo Williams. Why does he hate Dwight? All Dwight did was respectfully, and humbly dominate them.

    It's sad that the Blazers had to act like punks. I really would have liked to cheer for them the rest of the way.

    I'll basically be rooting for everybody but the spurs, heat, blazers, thunder, nets, and mavs.

    I probably won't watch any of the game 7s this weekend. Too disappointed and burned out. Miami would be my first choice...Spurs next.

    I never root for somebody else when the Rockets are eliminated. I'll watch what happens, might root against somebody, but I don't pick somebody else to go for.

    It's absolutely hilarious how off base you are.
