    Celtics-Bulls playoff series....EPIC

    For those of you who haven't been watching, your missing probably one of the best, if not THE BEST, playoff series in NBA history.

    Every game has been truely edge-of-your-seat action. 7 OTs total through 6 games....already an NBA record....and last night was easily the best game...triple OT and the block of Rondo by Derrick Rose to win it....

    Amazing play by Joakim Noah...

    Best series I've seen in a while. Hopefully the Bulls pull it out tomorrow night.

    I just wanted to comment because I heard Fatcessa saying this was not a classic series because people weren't "playing great in the clutch" . He based this ridiculous argument on some plays from the last game, which I guess to him takes away from all of the last second 3's there have been in this series, game changing blocks, steals, etc. .

    And also, is he really ignorant enough to just dismiss FOUR overtime games in a series which isn't even done yet? That not only won't happen again this season or next, it won't happen again where we see 4 overtime games in a 7 game NBA series in the next 20 years...this isn't hockey, which lends itself to OT's--and even in the NHL no series has had 4 OT games yet this season.

    Who cares if it's the opening round, when you want to talk about great series in any sport for that matter you need 2 ingredients--close games and dramatic finishes, and we've had all of that here. As long as game 7 isn't a blowout, that'll cement this series as top 10 in the last 16 years that I've followed basketball when you're judging based on competitiveness.

    Fatcessa despises the nba so he nitpicks and tries to downplay this like it isn't a great series - but it certainly is. I don't know what he's going to do November 2010 after the Knicks have signed one maybe two superstars and become relevant again.

    Bulls have certainly stepped up their game. It helps when David Stern gifts you Derrick Rose and the Kings gift you Brad Miller. If Garnett was playing I doubt the Bulls win a game but as it stands they probably will pull off the upset and win tommorrow night b/c you have to think the older Celtics are exhausted from all the OT's.

    Best NBA Series I have ever seen:

    2002 Kings-Lakers Western Conference Finals
    1998 Bulls-Pacers Eastern Conference Finals
    1992 Knicks-Bulls Second Round
    1999 & 2000 Knicks-Heat Playoffs
    2005 Spurs-Pistons NBA Finals

    Don't forget John Salmons, who has been even more important to the Bulls in this series than Miller.

    You realize an outside accounting firm audits the draft lottery, right?

    As much as the NBA had diminished over the past 10 years, the last two years have come back with power. This is easily the best series I can remember, and the best part is that it features two of the greatest UConn players going head to head...

    UCONNNNNNNNNNNNNN
