It's amazing that the game is over already before the conference finals even start.

What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Thanks for putting in all this work, Indy!! Seeing everyone’s finals predictions is fucking depressing.

Pure luck I won, just wished our finals predictions came true. :(

Seems like a lot of us underrated Miami, who have looked great this postseason.

Butler is so weird. I just don't see him as a top 5 player. Then the playoffs roll around and he plays like a top 2 player.

It's funny how much just winning changes perceptions of a player. Miami's great playoff run is thanks to Butler but also their great coaches and other players. But Butler ends up looking like an MVP candidate because of it.

Not just this year. He also took a team of nobodies to the Finals and won 2 games against a healthy AD and Lebron.

Swept by the eventual champions…who’s everyone rooting for now? I’m pretty firmly on team Heat I think. I’ve always liked Jimmy Butler and him getting a title would be cool.

They got stuck playing the best team in the NBA in the first round. Sucked for them.

I've always liked the Heat (I think it started in 2006 when I rooted for them to beat the Mavs who had just elminated us...hmmm). But I think the Celtics might have a better chance of beating the Warriors (or Mavs but I don't think they'll get past GS), and I don't want the Warriors winning (except in this round of course).
