I got the Clips to beat the Suns. I’m also partial to them b/c Livingston is my favorite player.
Paul Pierce blows. He’s not even a top 20 player in the game. I don’t care how many points he’s scored. I could name 20 players I’d rather start a team with. I’ve watched him since college and has never really impressed me.
I think Shawn Marion and Elton Brand are more underrated than Pierce. Have you seen those guys this post season, there animals.
I also think atleast 1 team will lose on their home court. The Mavs get Terry back, the Clips have a good chance, and the Cavs have Lebron so anythings possible.
Should be a good show though. Just hope It’s different teams this year. I like Detroit and the Spurs but I’ve had to much of them the last few years too.[/quote]
I agree about shawn marion being underrated. However, Elton Brand is not really underrated. People have come to respect his game and everyone knows that he is the cornerstone of the clips. I only really put two othere powerforwards ahead of him: Duncan and Nowitzki( the both you could argue are not true powerforwards, seing that Duncan plays alot of center and Nowtizki plays all over)And who knows if amare is better, we’ll see how he rebounds. But Brand is dominant and everyone knows it.
