Usually I’m not a huge NBA Playoffs fan until the later rounds…as it’s usually a case of the talent-rich crushing the talent less-rich in the early rounds. I think we might see some deviations of that this postseason. Here are my predictions…and yes, spoiler-alert, I’m taking a surprise team to end up in the Finals…
(1) Toronto over (8) Washington in 6 games: Wizards are talented but haven’t been able to replicate any part of last year’s success.
(4) Cleveland over (5) Indiana in 5 games: LeBron in the playoffs is an entirely different animal. The Pacers will have no answer for The King whatsoever.
