The 82-game marathon is over and now the real basketball begins.
Sixteen teams will advance into the playoffs and we will try to predict how every series will go in the first round. In a seven-game series, the best teams always win so don't expect a lot of upsets here.
Golden State Warriors (1) vs Los Angeles Clippers (8)
The Warriors delivered a message to their Round 1 counterparts earlier in the week and expect nothing to be different once that ball goes up in the air. Read More
The NBA playoffs are here so it's time to sound like an idiot again and predict the winners of the first round. You know what they have said about this year's playoffs-- that it's only going to be a collision course between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. While that conclusion makes sense, we cannot be absolutely sure because anything can happen-- whether it's injuries (hope not) or just simply one team outplaying either one of the favorites.
So before we get carried away Read More
Khris Middleton does not sound like a basketball player's name and add to the fact that the Milwaukee Bucks only played four nationally-televised games, the name doesn't ring a bell that much among casual NBA fans.

Speaking of fit, last year's prized free agent recruit Greg Monroe sure is an awkward one. It looks like Kidd wanted his spry youngsters to run but Monroe is a half court offense kind of a guy that Read More
If we're talking about possibly the most underrated fantasy-producing team, it might very well be the Milwaukee Bucks. There's not much to be excited about in Wisconsin, unless you love snow to death, but when it comes to their young, spry, athletic basketball team, them residents of Milwaukee better be.
For starters, the Bucks are one of the few offseason teams that didn't lose one to get one so aside from keeping their core, they added to it big-time via free agency by the name Read More
We have (mostly) seen everything in this year's edition of free agency, from the emoji wars to the backyard stakeouts and everything in between.
It must have been clear by now that front offices and thereby, teams, aren't created equal and some definitely did fare better than the others.
1. New Favorites Out West
As if its still-solid core isn't enough, the San Antonio Spurs re-tooled and, shall we say, set themselves up for good for another half-decade long of contention by adding LaMarcus Read More
