What we do (and don't) want to see in NBA playoffs


What we do (and don't) want to see in NBA playoffs
The soon-to-be-unleashed playoffs are promising to inspire more interest in the NBA than any event since Ron Artest stopped throwing haymakers at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

Based on the regular season, the drama should be exquisite. The storylines could be unreasonably compelling. We may even witness showdowns that are slightly more contentious than that marathon battle of wits co-starring Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump.

2008 NBA playoffs

  • Lakers vs. Hornets: Sure, the top two seeds in the Western Conference might generate a great series, but the Bryant-Paul MVP chatter would drive viewers (well, me) insane.

    A regular-season popularity contest is no match for finding out who will be Finals MVP.

  • The Eighth Seed Beating the One Seed In the Eastern Conference: Seeing the Atlanta Hawks advance would mean that aliens abducted Kevin Garnett before Game 1 and replaced him with Michael Olowokandi.

  • The Seventh Seed Beating the Two Seed In the Eastern Conference: According to contractual fine print, if the Celtics and Pistons don't meet in the conference finals, ABC and ESPN will be allowed to broadcast reruns of The Bronx Is Burning during that time slot.

  • Nash vs. the Scorer's Table: It was an ugly scene the first time and not redeemed by being the only way two players can make it off of D'Antoni's bench in the second half.

  • Denver In Round 2: The Nuggets' commitment to avoid guarding anyone should not be rewarded by advancing.

  • Cavaliers vs. Spurs: We've already been witnesses to LeBron going 1 on 5.

  • Pistons vs. Spurs: Some of us might actually enjoy this championship series if we didn't have to hear the rest of you bellyaching about it.
