Obviously, I enjoyed seeing the Sixers beat the Bulls. A shame Chicago lost Rose in game one (well, not really that much of a shame in my mind -- heheh). Chicago probably wins with him -- but lost without him. Though Philly did play the Bulls quite well during the regular season.
I really like this Sixers team. Doug Collins is a heckuva coach. No coach utilizes his bench as well as Collins (hell, the leading scorer for Philly comes off the bench -- Lou Williams). It's a pretty young, up-and-coming squad.
Boston is next. That's Philadelphia's #1 rival. While I don't expect the Sixers to win the series, I do think it will be highly entertaining.
The Lakers have really screwed the pooch. Up 3-1, they have blown two opportunities to close it out. Now they go to Game 7 while Oklahoma City closed it out in 4 games and has been waiting over a week for an opponent.

I used to casually watch but once I moved to LA the Laker fans have completely turned me against the game....the Kobe adoration is disgusting.....great player, awful person.......but on the flip side I have become a huge Kings fan so at least I have that
HW, your Sixers are looking good. They almost took Game 1, and now they've evened the series up. You think they have a shot to get to the Eastern Conference Finals?
Looks like a 7-game series to me. They certainly could get there -- but I tend to favor experience over youth, and Boston has plenty of experience. But, maybe their old legs tire out. I think it would be absolutely awesome to see the Sixers in the Eastern Conference finals -- though the Heat would likely win the series with ease. Still, the future is bright in Philadelphia. And they really don't have a superstar -- but lots of very capable players and depth.
will someone please let me know if they can get closed captions on their TNT broadcasts??? I haven't been able to get any the last 2 days....I'm trying to figure if it's isolated or problems elsewhere also....TIA.
