My Thoughts On The NBA Playoffs

Sports Commentary
By Scott McLean

The NBA playoffs are a lot of fun again this year. It's quite possible San Antonio and Dallas will have to play seven games to decide their series.

Phoenix vs. the Los Angeles Clippers might get interesting, too, but I still say the Suns will prevail in six.

In the Eastern Conference, the Detroit Pistons are dominating the Cleveland Cavaliers, although LeBron James will make more tremendous plays before the series is over.


Regardless, it could be a Detroit sweep, unless LeBron's teammates do more scoring and play better defense.

Before the series began, I thought the Cavaliers would win one or two games, but I don't see them making the Pistons worry.

The New Jersey Nets vs. Miami Heat is a much more physical series, which could take the full seven games to decide. I think the Heat will win the series, if only because of Shaquille O'Neal.


Shaq creates matchup problems for the Nets, who will probably double-team him when he has the ball near the basket.

Rather than put all their effort into limiting Shaq, in my opinion the Nets need to do a good job of guarding Dwayne Wade and the rest of Miami's shooters.

If the Nets keep scoring the way they have all season, with Vince Carter and Richard Jefferson taking the ball to the basket and efficiently making jump shots, and Jason Kidd passing the ball to them, they could make this a close series.

Hi, Tsui Hark has made many great HK films. But most are not as 'international' as Wong Kar Wai's or other directors' ones. I guess those that are more well-known in US is the Once Upon a Time(or Wong Fei-hung) series. His most recent film is Seven Swords.

"Awards usually go to films which portray underdogs" I really agree with that. And there's another "golden" rule for actresses: make yourself look as ugly as you can.

I sorry I can't see the chat name you mentioned. Where is it? And which chat format is it for? Something like ICQ or MSN?
