Has anyone enjoyed this years playoffs?
I agree 100%. Maybe that is because of the teams I root for. The Browns are and always will be dreadful. I really thought the Indians would be pretty good this year. Sports Illustrated even picked them to win the World Series. Now they will be lucky to get out of last place. And then there is LeBron. I will watch and continue to watch. In fact I am watching the Cavs game right now.I would say the NBA playoffs have been a little disappointing due to two major factors. First the Eastern Conference is very weak so the Cavs getting in seems like a foregone conclusion despite their injury problems. And in the West the major factor is injuries for just about every team. Jeff Van Gundy has even mentioned how it would have been great to see this year's playoffs with all the teams healthy. I know injuries are a part of the game but this year is an exceptionally bad year for major injuries that either knock key players out or hamper them badly. Heck, just look at the pre season Western Conference favorites the OKC Thunder who did not even make the playoffs due to injuries to Durant, Westbrook and Ibakka!
That being said the Spurs/Clippers and the Clippers/Rockets have been outstanding series. And there have been some barn burners with last second, game winning buzzer beaters in both conferences.
And did anyone see last night's game between the Rockets and the Warriors? That was the farthest thing from boring.
I think the NBA is in a Golden Age right now and for me is the best sport to watch. I'm dead serious about that too. MLB lost me 15 years ago and the NFL is becoming nearly unwatchable for me. I never thought I'd say that about the NFL either. College football is OK but college basketball is absolutely terrible to watch anymore.
So yes the NBA Playoffs are somewhat disappointing this year but even with that I still enjoy watching them more then any other major sport, pro or college, presently.
Wow! That game 2 was a shocker! I would not give up hope just yet on the Cavs winning it this year.What a bummer!! But I remember LeBron saying that it would take a little while before they win a title. Even though he most likely is one of the three or four greatest players of all time I just do not think he can do it all himself. But I already am looking forward to next year when Lamarcus Aldridge joins Cleveland. With Love and Irving healthy and Aldridge helping out it should be a banner year for the Cavs. Pun intended.
