With the beginning of the NBA playoffs today, I think I owe the world some predictions.
In the East, first round we’ll see Cleveland beat Detroit, Boston beat Chicago, Orlando beat Philadelphia, and Miami beat Atlanta. Cleveland beats Miami in round two, and thanks to Kevin Garnett’s injury Orlando beats Boston. Then Cleveland beats Orlando.
In the west, first round we’ll see LA beat Utah, Denver beat New Orleans, Dallas beat San Antonio, and Portland beat Houston. In round two, LA beats Portland (but it’ll be valuable experience for this promising young squad) and Denver beats Dallas. LA will beat Denver in a thoroughly non-exciting conference finals.
Last, Cleveland will win the championship. What do you think?
