The playoffs are coming up, who can be the best?

I think the best teams out there is Dallas and Cleveland.

The Lakers have lost their "Mojo" and the Maverics have been tearing up thier oppenits ever since they aquired Caron Butler from the Wizards. I like their leadership with Jason Kidd and Dirk Nowitzki.

For Cleveland it is do or die. Lebron will not want to stay in Cleveland if they can not win a title. For Lebron this is a big deal. No one will compare him to Michael Jordan if he can not follow up in the Post-season and not win a title.

For the East i would not be surprised if Atlanta or Orlando make it. Atlanta has Josh Howard, Joe Johnson, and Mike Bibby, while Orlando has Vince Carter, Dwight Howard and Jameer Nelson.

I am very surpirsed with how bad the Lakers and doing. Beofre the All-Star break Kobe was possibly the best player in the leage but now he is messing the team up. I would not be surprosed if they lose in the first round to the Thunder.

Boston has been a huge let-down. They were so good it wasn't even fair, now they get the 4th seed and I wouldent be surprised if they lose in the first round.

I think the finals will be Cleveland vs Dallas and Cleveland comes on top. Lebron will be considered with Michael Jordon but I think he will leave to go to the Knicks.
