Well congrats mofos. Ya'll ran ramshod through these playoffs and beasted on all. Sure it was the alternating Bron and AD show, but they wouldn't have won it so easily without the likes of Caruso, Rondo, Dwight (Mofo must be over the moon! Got a ring!), C-Pope etc.
Decimated by injuries to key personnel, Goran Dragic, and Ban Adebayo, not to mention Jimmy Butler playing valiantly on who-knows-how-bad a twisted ankle. This series was close! 4-2 in the end but legitimately Game 4 could have gone either way! Let's put the Miami Heat under the microscope.
A good run for the Celtics this year. Restored to their proper place after last year's meltdown. Big series win against the Raptors in 7 games where they were firing on all cylinders. They met their match in the Eastern Conference Finals though. A Heat team brimming with confidence after running through their bracket in the division carried on their successful ways.
How entertaining was this squad? Heart attack kids left it all on the floor every game but it seemed clear that Lebron and Co. had them outclassed. Nothing to hang your head on, Lebron, AD and Co. looks to have the league outclassed this playoffs.So without further adieu let's get into our grading of Nugget individuals for this series. Damn was that an entertaining run.
Biggest Reach: Maryland Terrapins at #11. Look – I love this team! They defeated Indiana in the finals (after Indy took out the perennially-hated Duke along the way to the Final Four). I thought Chris Wilcox (aka, Weezy) was gonna be this millennium’s Shawn Kemp! Juan Dixon was clutch in the tourney (and drafted by the Raps along w/ Lonny Baxter!) But those jerseys? I dunno, Nick...
