    Cavs in 5
    Sixers in 7
    Celtics in 6

    Rockets in 5
    Jazz in 7

    If you want to make the finals then you'll likely have to go through the top teams eventually but I think this is almost worst case scenario for the Raptors. Their reward for winning the East is the Wizards in round one and if they advance, they'll probably get LeBron in round two.

    Meanwhile on the other side of the bracket, things are looking pretty good for the Sixers to advance to the ECF. It's them, a depleted Celtics team, the Heat, and a very inconsistent and underachieving Bucks team. The Heat always play hard and will make the Sixers work but they just don't have enough. Their best hope is Embiid missing the first game or two and stealing one but even that's easier said than done with how the Sixers have played recently.

    Predicting Houston to win their third NBA championship this year. Harden and CP3 will finally get their rings.

    I want to take Celtics in that series so bad just because Stevens is a god, but they're just wayyyyyyyyyy too banged up.

    Cleveland in the East and either Golden State/Houston in the West, me thinks GS with their experience gets by Houston in game 7 of the WCF.

    I don't trust anyone in the East right now besides Cleveland. Toronto has a knack for making things hard on themselves in round 1, Boston is banged up, Philadelphia is young.

    Until Chris Paul actually proves not to be a playoff choker, I will forever refrain from picking a team he's on to go to the NBA Finals

    Would another Cavs/Warriors Finals be a letdown?

    Brown says Embiid is out for game one. The Heat have to steal that one to have a chance.
