Okay guys. Playoffs are coming here is my fantasty from the semi.

Spurs Pistons
Phonenix Heat

Spurs vs Pistons
[move]Pistons win[/move]

However I am usually wrong. Would love to see The Kings battle the Spurs hard and win. Same for Lakers and Bulls. What do you guys think.

What the hell is the point in the first round of the NBA playoffs when all but one matchup is a foregone conclusion? The sport is just so boring with you know who's gonna win at the start of the year (well one out of 2 or 3 at a stretch).

Sounds like the premiership to me...

At least the Premiership has 4 big clubs who could realistically put in a challenge and the other competitions based around it like the FA Cup always provide us with plenty of upsets. The NBA is just the one competition and you know Detroit cannot lose in the East and San Antonio is 95% sure of winning the West. Wow!

There hasn't been a title race involving 4 clubs in the premiership for years. At least one of them always has an off-year. And even 3-horse races are pretty rare. This year hardly seems like there's been any competition at all. It typically comes down to 2 teams contending, and is over weeks before the season's end - making the last few weeks off the season oddly unsatisfying.

I'm not dissing the FA cup, as it is a quality competition. The league cup, however, is a bit of a spare part.

I'm no fan of the NBA, but I'm just playing devil's advocate here. At least the end of the season is mildly more exciting at the thought that an upset *could* happen, however unlikely it may appear, and gets better as it reaches the climax - unlike the Premiership and the way it peters out.

Agreed, although at least football has the Champions League where a different winner seems to come every year and where the last three have been absolute stunners, real outsiders.

Yep I think that's a fair comment. For me, the final stages of the champions league are immeasurably superior to the premiership and NBA basketball! The UEFA Cup though.... hmmm... I'm starting to think it's a waste of time. No disrespect to Middlesbrough, but none of the big teams treat it with respect any more.
