NBA Playoff Facts and Records

The 2004-2005 NBA regular season is over and it's time for the slam-dunking, buzzer-beating, flagrant-fouling action of the playoffs to begin. There's no Kobe and no Lebron James - but there are several teams this year with a shot to win it all. The Kidzworld Coach makes his 2005 NBA Playoff Picks.

2005 NBA Playoffs - Western Conference

With Shaq moving to Miami and Sacramento downsizing, the Western Conference is more competitive than it has been in years.
Western Conference Contenders
  • Phoenix Suns - The arrival of Steve Nash in Phoenix turned the Suns into title contenders but their run-and-gun offence might not do well in the playoffs when defences become tighter than a Jennifer Lopez party dress.
  • San Antonio Spurs - If Tim Duncan is fully recovered from his late season ankle injury, the Spurs should be on their way to another title.
  • Denver Nuggets - The Nuggets were the NBA's hottest team in the second half of the season. If Carmelo Anthony and Kenyon Martin step their games up, the Nuggets could strike playoff gold.
  • The Coach's Pick For Western Final: San Antonio Spurs over Phoenix Suns in 6.
  • 2005 NBA Playoffs - Eastern Conference

    The NBA's Eastern Conference is no longer a pathetic collection of washed up gym rats. The Shaq Attack has heated up Miami. The Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers have created a rivalry that's nastier than a cat fight between Nicole Ritchie and Paris Hilton. Whoever comes out of the East will be more than capable of battling the best in the West.
    Eastern Conference Contenders
  • Miami Heat - The combination of Dwyane Wade and Shaquille O'Neal could be more unstoppable than the Kobe-Shaq combo of the Lakers Dynasty. But will Shaq stay healthy through a long playoff schedule?
  • Detroit Pistons - The Pistons are the defending champs and they go into the playoffs running on all cylinders.
  • Indiana Pacers - The revitalized Pacers will want to give the retiring Reggie Miller one last shot at an NBA title.
  • The Coach's Pick For Eastern Final: Detroit Pistons over Indiana Pacers in 7.
  • Coach's Pick For NBA Title:

    Detroit Pistons over Phoenix Suns in 5 games.
