this was a great year for the playoffs
a lot of good series with good games and a lot of players making themselves known

my favorite series was the Bulls-Celtics series

Too bad the Bulls lost.

Hawks-Heat series was most boring. Blowout after blowout, no games were close.

I'll change my tune if someone can tell me the last time a playoff was missing so many star and superstar players

Definitely appreciated:

Bulls/Celtics

Emergence of Carmelo as superstar

Dwight showing he can be and unstoppable force

Orlando Magic

All the buzzer beaters (Iggy, Big Baby, Turk, Shard, Bron)

Kobe and Bron


And the best is yet to come I believe, this will be an EPIC Finals

Appreciated. Sad that the Bulls lost but that was an amazing series. D Rose really showed that he wasn't afraid to play with the big name players. He mightbe dumb as a rock and cheated on his tests but he can play. Carmelo really proved himself this year and his future looks bright. Orlando is looking reallysharp in these playoffs, they are in the finals without one of their best players. The Lakers are being the lakers. It sucks that Yao got hurt and couldn'tfinish the series but the rockets did well without him. Lebron could have been in the finals but the magic were the better team.

you guys have such bad interpretations of what "good" is



there have been a TON of bad games... terrible officiating, stupid controversy and made up drama, and worst of all - very little well played basketball.

You guys are the same people who swear the Office is just as good as ever and the NFL hasn't been getting dramatically worse every year... you'recalled rubes, and you buy whatever TV sells you.

Please just answer my question rather than just list random players

Manu, KG, Yao, Elton Brand, Jameer, AI, Marvin, Horford, Okur, damn near half the Hornets

Worst is how the defending champs were missing their franchise player.

did you seriously list Marvin, Horford, Okur, and half the Hornets as stars?


seriously?

and you named Elton Brand like he has been a staple in the playoffs or something...

This is one of the best playoffs in a long time. Maybe it's because my team is finally back in the Finals after years of being sorry as hell.

Not stars fine, they're all important starters to their team.

Elton may not have gelled but he's still a star

This season's playoffs were definitely appreciated. I nearly caught all the games this year and I was definitely not disappointed.
