It is going to be Lakers vs Blazers in the first-round.

Hopefully Portland comes out with the upset. They need to go in there and steal Game 1



Dame can obviously do it, but he's going to have to go supernova for them to have any chance.


bron is going all out , this maybe his last appearance any where near his peak .   If he can't win it this year ,  im really doubting he can next .   It all made up for him to,win another give me title .

He's got his work cut out for him with that roster and the competition in both conferences.

The insane number of superstars he's gonna have to beat to win a ring...

Dame, CJ, Melo and Nurkic in round 1

Harden and Westbrick possibly in round 2

Kawhi, PG13 and Patrck Beverly & co. In WCF.

And of course if not the Freak then our big 4 and Smart in the Finals...

I have to admit, i will throw my hats off to him if he manages to win a ring with no real HCA to speak of...respect.

Let's go Blazers! Beat the Griz, so we can lock into 14th pick, even have slight chance of sliding to 2021 unprotected. But would be quite happy with 14th, I think we can get someone who will be part of our rotation next season.

Maybe with the 14th pick we will get somebody like the next Giannis.  ;D

monkeys might fly out my butt

And you will be right because the Lakers are not the best team in the playoffs. I will rank them as the fourth best team behind the Clippers the Bucks and the Cetics.

Even if this may very well be an asterisked season, I hope the Celtics win their 18th banner having an asterisk. It has been 10 years since our last Finals appearance.

It was LeBron's wish, to have the season continue during these unprecedented times.

I hope when Rondo comes back, he isn't that playoff Rondo from 2010, 2012, or 2017 lol

2017 was against the Blazers.

That was 2018 when he was with the Pelicans, but 2017 when he was with the Bulls and practically took the first two games in Boston before he got injured. The man is a monster in the postseason.

LeBron probably won’t even allow him to have enough of the ball to be as good as he can be

If my memory is correct, the Bulls credited Rondo with communicating the Celtics sets while he was on the court.  No reason to think he can't have a similar defensive impact in 20-25 MPG for the Lakers.

On the flip side, his high IQ will likely be mitigated against teams like Portland and Houston.  Those teams are mostly isolation with minimal ball movement.

It won't be easy at all, but I'm confident we can take the Bucks.

agree.  Giannis needs more help to get it done.  He's almost got enough.  But not quite.
