2015 Playoffs: First Round Predictions

In General NBA on April 16, 2015 at 7:38 pm

Eastern Conference

  • Atlanta over Brooklyn – short series. 4 or 5 games.
  • Cleveland over Boston – short series. 4 or 5 games.
  • Chicago over Milwaukee – medium length series. 5 or 6 games.
  • Toronto over Washington – long series. 6 or 7 games.

The Raptors vs Wizards series is the only series in the East that I think will be closely fought. To be honest, it is the only series in the East that I am looking forward to seeing in the first round. I expect the Bulls to toy with the Bucks and let them hang around longer than they should but ultimately take care of business. Chicago has too much talent for the Milwaukee. The Hawks and Cavs should have comfortable series wins against vastly inferior opponents.

LeBron’s Career Minutes

In General NBA on February 12, 2015 at 1:01 pm
  • Magic Johnson = 33,245 regular season minutes + 7,538 playoff minutes = 40,783 total minutes
  • Larry Bird = 34,443 regular season minutes + 6,886 playoff minutes = 41,329 total minutes
  • LeBron James = 34,860 regular season minutes + 6,717 playoff minutes = 41,577 total minutes

I was shocked to hear LeBron has already played more career minutes than Larry Bird.
