I've seen a Tapology Talks for everything else so wth.

 

With the playoffs approaching lets talk some basketball.

Some news from recently:

- Heat get 18th win straight over Indiana.

- Lakers beat Chicago to take 8th seed in the West.

- Durants 23 pts and 10 rebs get the Thunder their 5th win in a row against the Cetics.

- Raptors beat Cavs, Kyrie Irving injures shoulder.

- Magic gave the 76ers their 5th straight loss.

- Suns beat Rockets even though Harden gets 38 pts.

Yeah I was gonna say. I could've sworn I'd seen a Basketball thread already, but hey if its missing it doesn't hurt to have another.

Usually when I'm not sure if it already exists I'll do a quick google search 'Tapology NBA' and I came across a Basketball Fantasy League thread from 2011 so I decided to go ahead and make a new one. An actual one for discussion.

I'm a Celtics fan :/ I enjoy Durant thought. And honestly this season I've really enjoyed the Cavs due to Kyrie Irving.

So....Who does everyone think is going to be in the finals this year and who do you want to be in the finals? Personally, I think the Thunder and the Heat are gonna have the first finals repeat since '97 & '98 Bulls/Jazz. I would prefer to see Spurs/Heat as the finals matchup. I just think the Spurs are the only team that have both the coach and personnel to execute the blueprint that has the potential to beat the Heat over a 7 game series.

Yea, i dont think anybody in the West can beat the Thunder in a 7 game series. Nor can anybody in the East beat the Heat.

Huge Nuggets fan. They're riding a 8 game win streak and they're 28-3 at home. Currently the #5 spot in the west. Tied with the Heat I believe for best home record in the league. Not many people are talking about them because they lack that superstar. Although Ty Lawson is quickly approaching that status. I think if they can get that 3 or 4 spot in the west and get past the 1st round they may get all the way to the finals. 

They are also the most entertaining team to watch. If you get the chance to see them don't pass it up. The manimal (Kenneth Faried) and Javale Mcghee are human highlight reels on a nightly basis. The whole team runs the floor for the whole game like nothing you've seen before.

OKC vs Spurs is gonna be the game to watch. With Parker out for a few more weeks, i see OKC stealing that 1 seed.
