I am picking the Spurs and Suns in six, just to feel safe but I feel that they will both be over in five.

Spurs in 5. If Game 1 was any indication, Seattle is in way over its head.

Suns in 6.

Spurs and Suns in six. I'm hoping these are more competitive than the East.

Phoenix/Dallas has to be the best series out there. Very entertaining; plus, the whole Steve Nash vs. former team thing. And who doesn't like Mark Cuban's enthusiasm? Best owner in pro sports, period. He even puts his e-mail up on the screen for fans to e-mail him with suggestions or complaints. Very accessible and fan-friendly. Anyway, I still see the Suns prevailing, but this could go the distance. Avery Johnson is doing a great job for a rookie coach. Still seems a bit odd seeing him in that position.

Agreed, the fast paced action in this series is good stuff! Agreed on Cuban as well; I love to see him walk out on the floor and high five his guys. What a great life that must be.

I predicted the Suns in 7, and it looks like that has a great chance of being correct. I'm still not used to Avery as coach yet either, but I think he's the most interesting coach to listen to in post-game interviews; very distinctive voice. I hear his players really love him as well.

Anyone see the absolutely wicked Amare Stoudemire tomahawk jam in their last game? Tolbert gave it a "10.5 on the sickness scale". No kidding!! Stoudemire is really growing on me

Amare is just a flat out stud of a ballplayer, he just seems to do whatever he wants out there and the scary thing is he is only 22 years old. The guy is going to the line 14 times a game in the postseason.

The thing with Avery is he has the jewelry to back his play so the Mavs are going to be more likely to listen to the guy. Plus when he was a player he had a lot of respect from teammates and players around the league for his style of play and leadership. Being the size he was he had to be more cerebral than others to get by. If I remember correctly his nickname was the 'Little General' when he played.

Bye bye Ray. I am so thankful that I don't have to hear from your whining ass anymore this year.

I can't fathom how a guy with DANNY FORTSON on his team can call any opponent dirty.

Now that Ray had a breakout season, he's going to get his $90 million contract. And I shall laugh when he misses 60 games with an injury.

Sidenote: Mavs are really whipping Phoenix in the 3rd quarter. Assuming they hold on, who wins Game 7? I hope Joe Johnson plays with a mask, it'd be Willis Reed for the 21st century.

EDIT: 13-2 Suns run at the end of the frame. Looks like Game Seven isn't such a sure thing now!
