Geez, I think they're not bad for a jumpshot team.

My point being, no team in the Eastern confrence has a inside presence anyway besides a Mutumbo. I believe in the Bucks still.

Mutombo is only a presence on the defensive side of the ball - his offense is average, at best. He isn't a dominating offensive weapon. I would argue that the Hornets have a talented and deep inside presence, albeit inconsistent in Elden Campbell and Jamaal Magloire, who has really come on.

Well, the Bucks are outta there.
I agree, Mutombo isn't really an offensive presence but teams don't need to have an actual presence. I notice that teams like the Raps have been working closer to the basket without having a real presence, besides AD.

Thumbs up All the higher seeds prevail

Just a little statistical note. All 4 higher seeds won in each Conference.

There were no upsets. That's not a surprise in the West but in the East everybody expected a free-for-all and that's not what happened.

I wonder when's the last time that's happened or if it's ever even happened before. Maybe it happened last year but I forgot, heh.
