"Doc" Rivers

---------------------------------------------------------------------

This will be the best 1st round series of the playoffs IMO. Both of these teams want to earn the right to see the champs. Unfortunately, only one of these teams will move on to that. People are writing Boston off again as old and washed up, and getting caught up in the Melo Knicks craze. I got NY winning this series, but it will take them 7 games to do so. Boston dont lay down and they rarely go out in the 1st round. Add in the recent tragedy in Boston, and I could see "sympathy" pushing these guys to an upset. It wouldnt shock me because Doc Rivers is a damn good coach. Yet & still, I got NY squeeking by in 7. They will have to prove their toughness in this one.

Not to nitpick (and you can delete this after you see it), but Pablo isn't 6-7 215.. he's 6-3 185.

Also, Celtics in 7.

Felton's downfall as a Bobcat was his inability to guard Nelson in the playoffs. I think he has a better shot against Bradley and Terry and the Knicks will win it on that matchup (and NY's bench is stacked with talent).

I'll go Knicks in 6.

The Celtics might just cause an 'upset' here and take this one in 6 or 7.
