    Bucks have a really stacked team. They have one super star in giannis but i think brook lopez has the skill set on both sides of the floor to also be a super star. While bledsoe, brogdon, and middleton have been playing like all-stars recently.

    Toronto has the closest thing to MJ and Kobe on the team only way they get to ecf is if they get rid of Lowry ASAP and get a sg/pg that can pass/defend and hit open shots . Celtics are on streak and they can beat any team when rolling and of course they have the best PG in the league . Bucks have a demi god on the team with great shooters. Indiana you just never know.. not to hate on the 76rs bc Im an A.I fan but they’re not doing anything but upsetting phily again. If kawhi goes back to the kawhi he was in his last game in the playoffs against G.S.. no one is stopping that man no one is guarding him. Facts

    Raptors in the Finals imo... but I have said, after some Bucks games, I think Bucks will be in the finals. I just see a 79 NCAA Championship finals sitch where the better team shuts down the future hall of famer and they have no chance. East loses in 4 or 5 to West Conf Champs...

    I think the East is really Boston's to loose. They have too many pieces that could eventually come together come playoff time. Philly has absolutely no chance without shooting, and Simmons being a non shooter is a huge liability in a half court playoff atmosphere. Toronto has a huge chance as well if they can keep Lowery healthy, and I know Leonard will up his game. The Bucks are my sleeper...I just can't underestimate Giannis and his work ethic. Even though he can't shoot, and teams know that he's driving, he's still a beast. They also have shooting and scoring from Middleton too. I'm rolling with either Boston or Milwaukee in the finals.

    fuck the bucks. its been celtics and raptors from the start. why? kawhi and danny have championship pedigree and know what it takes to play through the playoffs. celtics are a hard nosed defensive team with kyrie having championship pedigree and killer mentality.
    the bucks? need to leave the first round to earn the right to be in this conversation. its going to be a one man show with khris inconsistent ass as your second best player. if you think teams wont bust out zone and game plan tf out of giannis then youre crazy.

    Kyrie is definitely the best player on the team, In the playoffs they will NEED a ball dominant player. Hayward scored 43pts, it will take time but trust me, Boston will need him in the playoffs. People can trash on the Celtics but it's only half way. They'll easily click by that time and Hayward isn't fully back yet, his injury isn't something you can just get back in half a season. Playoffs will be scary against Boston.

    Everybody says that the Celtics are so great, because of what they did last year without kyrie and Hayward, but now they just have too many good players that need minutes and need to grow. None of their young players are gonna grow, and Tatum, brown, rozier, and horford are all compromised because kyrie and Hayward are back and they can’t figure it out. I don’t see them making past the first round

    The Bucks didn't get respect in 2001 with Ray Allen, Sam Cassell, and Glenn Robinson. I don't expect them to get respect with Giannis either. Of course in both case they both deserved and EARNED respect, but because Milwaukee is not the sexy-name like Philly, Boston, New York, Chicago, Miami, they get passed over.
    Just like Golden State, the Milwaukee Bucks are going to have to kick the door down and *TAKE* that Finals trophy to get some speck put on their name.

    Bucks have played an easier schedule than Toronto also Bucks haven’t had to deal with injuries like Toronto has. Raptors have the best record with Kawhi playing every other game. Lowry was out. JV is still out. Norm was out. OG wasn’t with the team the first few weeks of the season so Raptors have the best chance at a championship.

  • Lisa Harris

    It really comes down to which teams in each conference finish as the 1 and 2 seeds. In the history of the NBA the 1's and 2's are "overwhelming" favorites to reach the finals unlike any other sport. The 3 seed has an outside shot and the 4 has barely a shot. All the other seeds are playing "powerball" type odds to make the finals. The NBA is really the most predictable league there is when it comes to playoff time.

      Whats also annoying is and its a narrative they always use for celtics but not raps, celtics basically kept their entire team, and simply added two all stars back in, to their line up same bench as well. Raptors lose 2 key players move around other bench players and throw a couple into the starting line up and have had 14 different starting lines ups and still make it work....
