2004 NBA Playoff Picks

The slam-dunking, shot-blocking action of the 2004 NBA playoffs is underway. Will Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs have enough jam to repeat as champs? Will one of those sad-sack teams from the East pull off a major upset. Check out the Coach's picks for the 2004 NBA Playoffs.

Western Conference Picks and Predictions

The Western Conference will once again be home to the 2004 NBA Champion. The top teams in the West are all much better than any of the brick-laying, double-dribbling chumps that make up the Leastern Conference.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have had a breakthrough season, thanks to the MVP season of Kevin Garnett. But the T-Wolves have little playoff experience, so don't expect them to make it past the second round. The LA Lakers have the best starting lineup in the NBA, with Shaq, Kobe, Gary Payton and Karl Malone. However, the Lakers are also a team in turmoil. Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal are getting along about as well as Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, and there's no guarantee the team will start playing solid basketball in the playoffs. The Sacramento Kings have a great team on paper but C-Webb, Mike Bibby and the rest of that crew know as much about playing defense as Avril Lavigne knows about playing guitar. The San Antonio Spurs, on the other hand, are red-hot going into the playoffs and look ready to defend their title. Expect the Spurs to meet the Lakers in the Western Final in a matchup that will be nastier than the conversation Kobe and Vanessa had after that "incident in Colorado."
The Coach's Picks for Western Final: Spurs over the Lakers in six games.

Eastern Conference Picks

The only teams worth discussing from the NBA'S Eastern Conference are the Pistons, Pacers and the Nets. The other playoff pretenders from the East will be sticking around about as long as William Hung stays famous (which is two months longer than I thought he would). Let's face it. The Knicks, Celtics and Heat would have a tough time beating a WNBA team with Mad Cow disease.

The Indiana Pacers had the best record in the NBA but they'll have a tough time getting by the Detroit Pistons in the playoffs. With Rasheed Wallace and Ben Wallace up front, the Pistons will have no problem shutting down Jermaine O'Neal and the rest of the Pacers. The Detroit Pistons won't have the gas to play against any of the teams from the Western Conference - but expect them to make their first appearance in the NBA finals since 1990.
The Coach's Picks for Eastern Final: Pistons over the Pacers in seven games.

Coach's Pick For NBA Finals: San Antonio Spurs vs. Detroit Pistons. Spurs win in six Games.
