    I'm not looking forward to Lakers vs N.O. Grizzlies vs spurs should be OK. But the two series on Sunday night should be really good
    Boston/NY and Lakers/NO are going to be dissapoinments I think, I don't even think Boston needs Shaq to win the series, they should let him rest for the second round.

    Must see TV for conspiracy theorists. I'll check in on the game for sure.

    With a healthy Brandon Roy, Portland wins both games. They just don't have a closer right now, and Nate McMillan isn't that great of a coach for late-game situations. Their offense tends to disintegrate in the money time.

    Do they beat the Mavs with a healthy Butler and Beaubois?

    Probably not with Butler. Beaubois had been in a hell of slump since coming back from his foot injury, so I don't think he would have made much of a difference either way.

    Brandon Roy will NEVER be healthy again. He will NEVER be the star player he was for a couple of seasons. Charles Barkley said it years ago about another player (I think it was Tim Hardaway at the end of his career), "He's not injured. He's hurt." You don't come back fully from being hurt, and Roy is hurt.

    In fact, this is my bold prediction for the summer. There will an amnesty provision in the next CBA (like the Allan Houston provision in the previous CBA, although this will be called the Gilbert Arenas provision) where teams can cut a player and have that player not count against the cap (or luxury tax) while the player gets paid the full salary. Using that provision, the Portland Trail Blazers will cut Brandon Roy.

    The Blazers are playing horrible right now. They have started the 3rd quarter shooting 0-14.

    He is showing flashes of his old self. That has to make Blazers fans happy.

    On a side note, when did Portland drop "Trail" from their nickname?

    Brandon Roy may never be the same for a full season, but he certainly has his moments.

    One of the best fourth quarter performances I have ever seen.

    The Blazers were down 23 points with less than three minutes to go in the third quarter. Remarkable comeback.

    Hey look, a veteran team with two hall-of-fame players is collapsing in the fourth against the third seed!

    Wow. This is a worse collapse than the Pacers.

    Oh man does Dallas suck.

    Same old for them in the playoffs.

    They won't go far or even get out of the first round it seems based on this game. Portland turned it around big.

    Great scene after the game with Roy being surrounded by his teammates.

    Brandon Roy still has a lot of game left in him.

    Man Portland has some good fans like OKC.

    Hopefully we see that soon.
