The NBA playoffs have arrived, any predictions???

April 19th will begin the most intense and highly-contested Western Conference playoffs the NBA has ever seen, or at least that's how it looks on paper.  We'll see who brings their "A" game, and we'll see who, if anyone, folds and collapses.  Boston and Detroit are the beasts of the East, but I would be very cautious of Washington, Orlando, and Cleveland, because as we all saw last season, Lebron can single-handedly lead his team to the NBA Finals.  The Spurs are my #1 team, and the Jazz are my #2, so those are my choices, I'm hoping for a Western conference rematch.  I would really like to see the Spurs win back-to-back titles for once, instead of taking a year before deciding they want to win it all again.  Come one, come all, make your most outrageous predictions, just be prepared to back them up with facts, or be prepared to eat crow.
