Feel like the Lakers have the easier road to the Western Conference Finals.

pessimistic or not, i'm just looking at the way they played the last few games...barely survived against a bunch of scrubs..true they didnt have the full team, but against the scrubs, they struggled mightily..i'm not sayin they'll have a hard time against NOH, just that they will struggle at times during the series, similar to the one against Houston a couple years ago....

Wrong. It is random draw if Western Conference team and Eastern Conference team has same amount of wins.

It may be different within the Conference...

lolwut

The following is an explanation of NBA tiebreaking scenarios.
Determining Ties for Playoff Position

In order to break a tie for playoff positions, if one exists at the end of the regular season, the following criteria will be utilized in the order set forth:

TWO-WAY TIES

1. Results of games against each other.

2. Better winning percentage within own division (only if tied teams are in same division).

3. Better winning percentage against teams in own conference.

4. Better winning percentage against playoff opponents in own conference (including teams that finished the regular season tied for a playoff position).

5. Better winning percentage against playoff opponents in opposite conference (including teams that finished the regular season tied for a playoff position).

6. Better point differential between offense and defense.

MORE THAN TWO TEAMS TIED

1. If applicable, division champions must be determined first.

2. Better winning percentage in all games among the tied teams.

3. Better winning percentage against teams in own division (only if all tied teams are in same division).

4. Better winning percentage against teams in own conference.

5. Better winning percentage against teams eligible for playoffs in own conference (including team that finished the regular season tied for a playoff position).

6. Best point differential between offense and defense.

Note: If a multiple team tie is reduced to a two-team tie at any point using the above criteria, the two-team tie will be resolved in accordance with the existing two-team tie procedure.

The Bulls earned home-court advantage throughout the playoffs with the NBA’s best record later Wednesday with San Antonio’s loss to Phoenix. Had the Bulls and Spurs tied, a random drawing would have decided the top spot because all the tiebreakers were even.

The Bulls can secure homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs with a win over the Nets and a San Antonio Spurs loss to the Phoenix Suns. If the Bulls and Spurs are tied after Wednesday, the league will conduct a random drawing on Friday to decide the top seed.

So the same Spurs beat Portland. Yeah, the ones with their Starters resting. James, you have been pessimistic all season. You were probably pessimistic during the Championship parade man.

nope, i'd give 'em props when they do well, and give them shit when they fucked up...even Kobe admits this team is weird, he doesn't know what's this team's identity is...its own leader hasn't a freakin clue!

EDIT: ESPN:
They still use tie breakers before doing a random draw. Just because it's East vs West doesn't mean they automatically do a random draw.

(3) If application of the criteria in subparagraph a. or b. does not result in the breaking of a tie, the playoff positions of the tied teams will be determined by a random drawing.

The refs looked real great last night in Boston... Melo with 2 fouls in the first minute.

Phantom offensive foul in the last minute. No call on O'Neal when he straight up murdered Billups (Same play he got hurt on).

Up by 13 in the 3rd. Can't close out the damn game. I guess I should just be happy we made the play offs.

it's not a matter of talents or abilities, it's a matter of want..not sure if these guys want it or not..worked hard for 2nd seed, homecourt, etc..but lost it the very first game...but like i predicted before, they'll be done by WCF..

Morey says the two agreed that Adelman was not the ideal coach to build the Rockets into a championship contender.

"We feel like we need change," Morey said. "Our goal is a championship caliber team, and we feel like we can grow into that with the players on the roster. We're not there right now, and that requires change."
Darl Morey is HIGH ON CRACK if he thinks that this roster is Championship Caliber

the ONLY reason the Rockets won 43 games WITHOUT AN ALL-STAR ON THEIR TEAM was because of Rick Adleman.

fuck the Rockets - dammit, they piss me off sooooo freakin bad !!!!!!

Your just the typical hater. All your post here have all been about Lebron , how about you take your shit talking to another thread. This is for basketball fans who want to talk about TEAMS and GAMES not bash players. And I'm not even a damn Lebron fan , how about you GTFO.
