(Admittedly not a fan of Ehalt to begin with)

But what does Jon Heyman think? And has Marc Carig confirmed this yet?

Ehalt's right. First round of NBA playoffs is worst of any sport. No drama. The competitive series' are just competitions to get swept in the next round, and there's never a big cinderella upset.

Compare to the crapshoot of the MLB, the NHL which always has a few cinderella's, and the NFL's "anything can happen in 1 game" with WC teams making runs frequently in last few years.

Yeah, what was the critique of Ehalt? He said what many prob think. The NBA, while a collection of superfreak athletes, is not very competitive. And yeah, the playoffs are totally anti-climactic.

I enjoy the NBA a lot, but Popper suggesting that Warriors over Rockets would be an "upset" because of regular season records is one of the most brain-dead takes I've read in awhile. It just takes a simple Google search to see the Warriors were heavy favorites going into the series.

Rockets vs. Celtics would NOT be what people expected for the finals this season c'mon.

Great. But the Rockets were seen as title contenders all season and now the Warriors will wipe them out... did anybody have the Celtics minus their 2 BEST players in the finals? The Celtics have been an incredible story with arguably the #2 coach in the league doing work. Borderline genius HC. Popp and then Stevens for me. Carlisle is great and all but the Mavericks haven't been good in years.

The Rockets just got wiped on their home floor. They're done.

The ECF is still very much open.

The Warriors have been heavy favorites all season over the Rockets even considering home court/record. Don't pretend otherwise.

The Celtics are a cool story, sure.
