Are The NBA Playoffs More Interesting Without LeBron’s Elbow?

Photo Credit: NBA.COM

There are lot of people writing about how the NBA Playoffs are better now that King James & Co. have taken an early exit. I don’t know about you guys, but I was getting tired of hearing about his bullshit elbow injury, day after day. Even he told the press to stop bothering him about it, but the stubborn press kept fanning the flames to keep people interested. Now, I think we’re finally playing some real ball.

Personally, I’m pulling for Dwight Howard simply because the Celts already tasted victory in the past & I have a deep-seated hatred for Kobe Bryant. To tell you the truth, one of the reasons I wanted the Cavs to hit the finals against the Lakers is simply because I wanted Shaq to have the last laugh, but obviously that didn’t work out too well. I>Fuck.

Anyway, I wanna hear your take about the current matchups.

i think the ratings suffered more because of the Spurs though. they were a boring team. Tim Duncan = your superstar = ZzzzZzzz...

I blocked out the Lakers win last year from my mind. And Boston is a bigger sports market than Cleveland, so Stern would back the C's. One of the lowest rated finals ever was Cavs vs Spurs. Celtics vs La? Always a ratings winner.

they both have 4.

and everyone always says the fix is in until its disproved. if it was fixed then Lebron would still be in it. now the fix is to have C's v. LA...if its Magic v LA again the fix will be for LA to win -__- yadda yadda.

But Shaq does have the last laugh. He has more rings. :)

As for the playoffs? The fix is already in, Stern himself will come down from the stands rocking a ref jersey if it means making the Lakers and the Celtics get to the finals. Just you watch.

if you ask Rasheed Wallace he'll tell you they turn it up (a.k.a. he only plays) hard during the playoffs lol and i agree with what someone else said about wanting to see nash in the finals. but i cant root against a Boston - LA finals...i just can't.

Kobe raped everyone in his village. And then razed the crops.

The crazy thing about that 'big three' picture is that Rondo is the best player on the Celtics...

I'm a huge Dallas so I was pissed when we got knocked out by the piece of shit spurs. Anyways i'm actually rooting for Los Suns with the rest of these four teams. I don't really care for the Lakers and have nothing against Kobe. LeBron can be overrated so I guess it's good that he's out. Where the fuck did the Cs from from? I want a Suns-Celtics final for sure...

It's not like he slept with someone in my family (it's possible, of course), but the hatred is up there...

yes they play every other day...except game 2-3 when there is a 3 day break. and yes i dont play with them nor do i think i do but i also refer to any of my favorite teams as "my team" and i'm not the owner of the team so who really gives a shit if i say "we". and i am just a celtics fan...we wont lose another game in the playo

you clearly are just a celtics fans with little knowledge of the game, they play every other day in the other rounds not 3 days in between games, and if u don't think sitting around hurts rhythm you're a moron, and unless u are on the team stop using WE

Yeah Dwight was shut down

but Orlando including Howard was missing a ton of shots

I think it was mad rust on them but that D that was putting on them will make the most difference

Los Lakers vs Los Suns

Los Celtics vs Los Magic"s"

I'm at a Los of Words

i dont agree that they are less interesting without Lebron. the media is now free to focus ALL of their dickriding to Kobe. and we didnt beat them because they were rusty. its like 3 days inbetween every playoff game so if thats thier problem then they better get over it. we beat the Orlando Dwights because we shut him down.

skilligan

they are less interesting but Orland will win in 6, boston won yesterday because orlando has been sitting on their asses for over a week, the lakers beat the suns in 6 and u get a rematch to last years finals

Lakers no

Don't care about the playoffs as much when rockets aren't in. I'm pulling for the suns though. It would be nice to see nash win a championship or at least get to the finals. That and I hate how abc/espn dickrides kobe.
