Playoff Seedings

Perhaps even more than usual, I think this season's playoff seedings will have a HUGE impact on the winners and losers this season. Why? I haven't actually figured that out, yet. Feel free to read on anyhow...

I'm not going to go into too much depth here - at least, not right now, maybe at a later date. I was discussing playoff seedings on another forum earlier, and I came up with the following:

1. San Antonio
2. Dallas
3. Los Angeles
4. Oklahoma City
5. Portland
6. New Orleans
7. Denver
8. Phoenix

If that were to happen, first and foremost I'd be ecstatic, because the Suns had made the playoffs. The point, though, is I think the 4 lower seeds are especially dangerous this year. Nobody knows what Portland is capable of, or where they'll end up injury wise - they're very much an enigma. New Orleans were playing elite ball at times this season. Denver's only a hot streak away from causing an upset - JR Smith and Danilo Gallinari are probably two of the streakiest shooters in the league. And of course, there's our beloved Suns, who I'm predicting will match up with the Spurs in the first round.

Aren't we just one season removed from SWEEPING the Spurs? I can honestly say I'm not scared at all of the Spurs, and I think last season was just a little teaser of things to come in the old rivalry. Am I the only one here that can visualise a deep, deep Channing Frye three putting the dagger through the old, decrepit Spurs for the last time? How about BAMF rising up and swatting away a would-be game winning layup from Manu or TP?

In my mind, there's hope yet. We're not doomed to a first round exit, not in my opinion.
