Was the romping of the Bulls (by the Pistons) expected?



I wouldn't say it was expected.  I thought that the Pistons would win game 1, but I didn't think that they would destroy the Bulls like they did.  I'm just hoping (for their sake) that the Bulls didn't shoot their entire wad in the Heat series.  They were playing the defending champs and hadn't made it past the first round in 9 years.  Some teams will have a bit of a letdown after a huge moral victory like that.  I have a feeling that Golden State may experience the same type of letdown against Utah.

I thought GS had that game last night - Reggie was right - always go for the tie when you're at home.

I was hoping too see Chicago and GS advance to the next round just out of nostalgia...

i guess that nostalgia is before my time.  i can see still rooting for chicago from the jordan days, but outside of a small window in the mid 90's i didn't know GS had a nostalgic period.
rooting for chigaco and utah to meet would be more nostalgic for me.

I was a fan of Hardaway and Mullen.
I did not mean for GS and Chicago to play each other.

i guess the season was not a total loss now that dirk has been named MVP. 

maybe next year he can go for a playoffs MVP.

No it was a catastrophe.  The so-called #1 seed in the NBA being bounced by a .500 team.

Almost as bad as the Yanks last year in Round 1.

Also, Nash 3-peated in my book.  Dirk didn't deserve it.

the award is for the regular season and dirk was the best player on the best team.  they lined out his stats in the the dallas paper and he was pretty awesome.

still, i wouldn't show up to accept the award if it was me.

with any luck steve will be picking up the playoffs MVP this year.

Did anyone else happen to catch that dunk that Baron Davis thumped on Kirilenko's head last night?  Damn!

Well, the Warriors are done.  As are the Bulls and Nets.  The only series that interests me at all is Phoenix and San Antonio ... and if Phoenix loses Game 4 to go down 3 - 1, they're done too.

Golden State acted like a bunch of cry-babies last night.  What poor sportsmanship.  Boozer's the real deal.  And I have a man-crush on Mehmet, but it's just because of his sexy bed-head.

There can be only one man crush per forum and I beat you to it.

Oh, man, you've got to be kidding me.  You'd waste a man-crush on that?

Dude, it's all about Okur.



See?  Dreamy.
