What surprised you the most?
Blake Griffin became America's rookie instead of John Wall, and most folks on TNT have a countdown in 2015 for him to come to the Lakers or Heat

What disappointed you the most?
Disappointed that Cleveland lost 26 games in a row. The team was rocked after the Varejao injury and of course the first match at home against the Heat.

Who is your lock for an upset in the playoffs?
Philly beating Miami in the playoffs

What surprised you the most?
The Chicago Bulls getting the leagues best record

What disappointed you the most?
Milwaukee, Houston or Golden State (It's a toss up between them)

Who is your lock for an upset in the playoffs?
Sixers to beat the Heat, or the Knicks to beat the Celtics (Would be a travesty the second one)

What surprised you the most?

1. The Bulls getting the best record in the league. If anyone would have said that would happen before the season started, you would think they were crazy.

2. D.Will getting traded/Jerry Sloan retiring. I didn't see either happening this season.


What disappointed you the most?

A year ago I said the cavs would be garbage w/o LBJ. before the season started [after getting sessions, byron scott, and assuming Hickson would end up being pretty good] I thought they would miss the playoffs, but at least compete for a playoff spot.. They ended up breaking the record for most consecutive losses in a season. So I'm disappointed in not sticking with what I first said.... the cavs would be garbage.


Who is your lock for an upset in the playoffs?

It's hard to pick upsets in the NBA because they almost never happen since it's a 7 game series. But I'll do one for each conference.

East: Magic. Beating the hawks won't be an upset, but beating the Bulls in the 2nd round will be considered one. No team in the East right now in the playoffs has a guy that can cover Howard. Not even the Bulls with Noah. We also don't have enough shooters to keep up with Orlando if they're hitting a lot of 3's. If they upset us, they are capable of beating Miami and Boston in the ECF because agai, Miami has no one that can stop DH and I'm not sure Shaq can anymore either.

West: Thunder. Beating the Nuggets won't be.. but I think they beat the Spurs in the second round.

Has to be the Bulls. No one expected a 60+ win season from them

What disappointed you the most?

The Clippers. I predicted them to make the playoffs... they got fucked up by injuries to Kaman & EG.

Knicks v.s Celtics Cool

What surprised you the most?

The Bulls and their amazing season.
Rose stepping up big time and leading the Bulls to that level of success.
When they obtained Boozer in the off-season along with Korver, Brewer...I did not think much of it at the time since the Heat stacked up their roster and the acquisitions the Bulls made seemed minor in comparison to me at the time. I honestly did not expect them to win 60 games...impressive job on their part though!

What disappointed you the most?

Sloan resigning and the Jazz becoming a non-playoff team in no time.
I have a feeling that D-Will had a part in Sloan's resignation which disappoints me because he was such a great coach. He was one of those coaches that could do so much with subpar/decent roster.

As well, Triano keeping his job for an entire season. I know the Raptors had nothing to work with but his coaching did not help the situation at all. Plus, he is losing respect of some of the players (e.g. Julian Wright) and cannot seem to motivate his guys better (e.g. Bargnani, Calderon).

Who is your lock for an upset in the playoffs?
Hmm...maybe Knicks vs. Celtics if Boston doesn't get it together.
I could see that happening.

Also, I HOPE TO GOD this does not happen but if we don't have Gino for the entire series...this could be a tough one for the Spurs....

What surprised you the most?
If the Bulls season surprised anyone then I think it would best suited for you to retire from partaking in basketball discussions.

The biggest surprise is the post-Carmelo-trade nuggets.

What disappointed you the most? Honestly, Kevin Durant. I know I expected him to improve upon last seasons numbers, match them at the least, but instead he is -3 in PPG, -.5 SPG, -.1 apg, - 1 RPG, 3 pt % is down, FT% down, FG% is down. His team win % is up, which is good, but with the hype around him last summer leaves me disappointed.

Who is your lock for an upset in the playoffs? Pacers>bulls in 7. I don't really believe it, but Hibbert will cause some problems for whatshisface and whatshisname.

I found all of that pretty funny.

You honestly thought the Bulls would finish with the best record in the league? HONESTLY? Because... on January 17th when the Bulls were 28-13, you said "the bulls just aren't good enough. they haven't convinced anybody" When people were talkin about Rose for MVP. Now you're saying that you're not surprised at all that they're the best regular season team this year? get the fuck outta here. before the season started, most people had them at around 52 wins, 4th seed in the East. when they found out Boozer was gonna miss over a month, they said about 50 wins. Then when Noah got injured, people thought they would finish no higher than 3rd. Now they're #1 overall and you're not shocked at all. Bullshit.

And your biggest surprise is the nuggets post melo? The one thing most people were saying after the trade, including most people on this forum, is that the Nuggets team looks better without Melo and that they have a bright future.

So you're surprised about something that most people saw coming... but everyone else shoud not be" partaking in basketball discussions."

nice Visa.

picking them to win the title is one thing... picking them to have the best record is another.

you had them at 3rd in the East and 5th best overall. right now, they're #1 overall.

but, you did give the Bulls a shit load of credit/hype/w/e you wanna call it before the season started. More than anyone on here, more than anyone I say on ESPN, NBATV and even people in Chicago.

So yeah, maybe to you it isn't as shocking that the Bulls have the best record haha.

I said they won't win anything because they would have to play LA and boozer vs LA is no good. Did I pick them as regular season champs? Yes I did. And after the first few games then people starting jocking denver but immediately after the trade?! That was too unprodictable. Quote anybody who predicted it, on this forum or not. So nenad; the guy who had washington winning 40, be quiet. @ Chris your mother sucks.

..... When did you EVER say they would be regular season champs? That's complete Bullshit cuz probably no one in the world has them as the #1 seed overall unless they were a really biased Bulls fan.

You said, the Bulls weren't good enough and haven't convinced anybody and that you haven't bought into them... when they were already showing people they were good. How the fuck did you think they would be the best team before the season even started?

I had WAS winning 38 before the season started. that's not really a lot of games. That was saying that the wizards were gonna be bad, but not terrible. They just ended up being terrible again.

http://realbasketballtalk.motionsforum.com/t7193p15-does-anyone-else-really-like-this-current-nuggets-team?highlight=nuggets

That thread, a lot of people gave the Nuggets love. King of all people even said they would be 5th seed... and they are.

When I say ' buy in' I'm talking championship. Now if you recall, when that thread was made, the talk on ESPN was championship. I had not bought in to that point. And the trade happened on the 21st thread was made on the 26th.

who's talking about championship? It was talk about Rose being MVP.

Makes NO sense, visa.

ooooooooo 5 days after the trade when the nuggets played only 2 games. People still thought they were going to be good.

Your acting like because I made a pre-season prediction that I can't critique mid-season. Its not like i'm a bulls fan, so i'm not in fan mode all the time. Even if it doesn't go with my prediction I will critique it because I like basketball, I don't care about teams not named the Wizards. Which is more surprising to you; a you team losing 26 PPG, 7 RPG, +22 eff off their roster and doing better or a team who had won 41 last year, Rose, Noah and gibson all another year better, and just acquired Boozer,Korver and Brewer, and becoming a 2 seed? Even if I had them at the 2 seed; when your at the 2, the 1 is not a surprise.
