    Talk about a conflict of interest. Jay-Z has an ownership stake in the Nets, but he is a good pal of Lebron's.

    Nets in 7.

    I just hope it goes 7. I want whoever wins to be good and tired for the Pistons.

    Re: Nets vs. Cavs

    Even if the Nets win this series, does anyone actually think they are worthy of being in the ECF?

    And the Cavs, well... if they get through let's just hope its in 7.

    I picked the Cav`s in my brackets, but I wouldn`t be surprised if NJ wins this series.

    However, I could care less, the Pistons are on a mission!

    Nets have too much talent and are feeling much better about themselves. Should not go past 6 games.

    Cavs could barely beat Washington who had two best players out. NJ has all of its players together and they are finding that cohesiveness, which could have been seen in the Toronto series. Jefferson is rounding nicely into the form, we all know what Kidd can do. If Carter is good (not even great) NJ should be advancing.

    Fairly ugly game here, but wow, Pavlovic just rejected Kidd on the fastbreak in the last two minutes a la Tayshaun with The Block on Reggie.

    Grind it out type of win for Cleveland. The Nets have to be upset that they couldn't steal a game when Cleveland played as poorly as they did offensively.

    I really wants the Cavs to win so that JMax and Tazr can re-arrange LBJ's face.

    He just did a dance after a "superstar" foul call on a basic layup. I seriously dislike this guy's character, his image, his message and his free ride to superstardom.

    If you hate his image, you would REALLY hate being his neighbor.

    watching both the nets and cavs is hideous. poor defense, ill-advised shots, no semblance of a game plan. the nets are slow, the cavs don't have a point guard.

    A little touchy aren't we, seriously though, what message or image?, i never see Bron in the news for anything bad

    any one who feels this way would instantly change their mind if he was on their team, this guy makes almost as many impossible fade aways as Kobe plus he drives, plus he dishes out, plus his image is sparkly clean

    I've gotta say Sheed's on court attitude can look way worse

    LBJ does get a lot of calls and if its your team that loses because of one of the them its going to leave a bad feeling for the guy. This is the monster that the NBA has created.

    Granted he would still be a great player but how much better could anyone be if they knew they could take a few extra steps here and there and have a different criteria for what an offensive foul is.

    I wanted the Nets to win, not looking too good now. They can still make a series of it. It has not been domination as in our series.

    Deleted my previous post.

    Suffice it to say, the only people in love with LBJ are folks from Ohio or displaced Cavs fans.

    He doesn't have the star power of AI or Kobe. He's just another in a line of high schoolers who jump to the pros, generate a lot of hype and then flame out. His game hasn't grown in 2 years.

    Sorry, we don't need LBJ in Detroit. I wouldn't want him on this team if he was free. Like Dwyane Wade, his greatest talent is getting a free pass from the refs.

    Being a Detroit fan is a lot about pride. We're not the Cavs. We have banners in our rafters and several guys in the HOF.

    Sheed also has very good sportsmanship. When the game is over win or lose he always shakes hands. Went out of his way to congradulate the Heat last season. All the Pistons did.

    LBJ shocked me last year when he refused to congradulate any of the Pistons after his Cavs lost game 7. Thats just not cool.

    I want the Nets to win just to avoid all the drama. Not saying there are any league wide conspiracies but we all know LBJ will get his calls and that some of that may cost us a game because of it. If they beat us then they beat us but if they win on some last sec BS call its going to frusteration that I just don't need.

    Hopefully the Nets can pull this one out and give us a nice clean hard fought ECF.

    If the Sanantonio robots win then good god man, who nation wide wants to see another Spurs/Pistons series? If I had any suspicions of conspiracies then facing the Cavs in the ECF with SAN in the wings scares me.
