How many of the 16 teams in the NBA Playoffs have a legitimate shot at the championship?
It is a fair question, and it was posed to me this morning on NBC Sports Radio by host Erik Kuselias on NBC Sports Radio. Just to give you a preview, I did not answer "Trail Blazers," "Pelicans" or "Celtics." But I did give an answer that reflects what an odd situation we have on our hands after the first two days of the NBA Playoffs.
Clearly, the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs are both championship worthy. And just as clearly, one of those teams is going to be watching the second round of the playoffs from their sofas. After two days of postseason basketball, it is not unfair to say that the only series worth your while is the one taking place between the Nos. 3 and 6 seeds in the West -- the two teams that finished the regular season with the strongest finishing kicks.
But which team in the other seven series has a legitimate shot to make these NBA playoffs a bit more interesting?
Give a listen and I'll provide you with an answer.
How will the results of Game 7 between the LA Clippers and Houston Rockets effect both franchises?
We will preview the Eastern and Western Conference Finals
How BIG is the NBA draft lottery for the LA Lakers?
Major League Baseball
How have the LA Dodgers and St Louis Cardinals dominated the NL in the early season despite injuries?
How has the handling of Josh Hamilton impacted the image of the LA Angels?
Alex Rodriguez passes 660 HR, but does it matter?
Miguel Cabrera hit HR #400
