First, let's start off with our friends at Yahell! Sports. By the way, who the heck is Al Toby? Most of them pick the Heat to beat the Bulls in the ECF; and a couple of them them think the Sixers are going 6 games against the top seed in the East. Woj being Woj doesn't even think the Bulls will make it to the ECF. To each his own!
Over at CBS Sports, Ken Berger is going with our Bulls over the Lakers in 7. Lakers, what? Seriously? Yes, and I agree with him! Kobe might just do enough facilitating to let the big man duo of Bynum and Gasol lead them to the Finals. And just for kicks and giggles, here is the CBS Sports 'experts' take on the first round. And I tell you; they really went out on a limb with those picks!
Let's take a drive on over SI.com (with the slowest loading page in Sports Website History) where the NBA Playoffs Power Rankings are mildly interesting. The expert picks, however, are where the real fun begins. We have one guy drunk enough to pick a Pacers/Lakers finals! Super!
Those are the main three sites I look at. If you have time for a bit of fun, stop by Grantland for Simmon's Most Interesting Storylines for the postseason. He's always worth a good chuckle. I also recommend The Mask Man's piece comparing LeBron to John Cena (I don't know who I hate more to be honest.) Enjoy!
Oh, and as for my predictions... well, I haven't any. Bulls in 4 for every series I suppose; even in the Western Conference.
