Who are you rooting for?

Ok, besides the Suns, who else are you rooting for in the playoffs?  Here's the breakdown of who I'm rooting for in the first round:

Toronto Rapters vs New Jersey Nets - This is hard for me.  Do you root for Bryan Colangelo - the former GM of the Suns?  Or do you root for Jason Kidd, former player in one-horse town (Yes, I do hold grudges)?  I'll pick Bryan Colangelo.  At least he didn't say anything bad about us as fans and flip us off.

Miami Heat vs Chicago Bulls - I want to see the Bulls go to the Finals this year so I am rooting for them in the first round.  It'll be nice to hopefully see both Kobe and Shaq out of the playoffs in the first round.

Orlando Magic vs Detroit Pistons - Who do I think will win?  The Pistons.  Who do I want to win?  The Magic.

Washington Wizards vs Cleveland Cavaliers - I should feel sorry for the Wizards but I just don't.  Gilbert Arenas is still a loud mouth that I think talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk (despite scoring 50 on the Suns in the first game against them this season).  So for me, I'm root for the Cavaliers and LeBron James.

Utah Jazz vs Houston Rockets - I'm going for the Jazz on this one.  I'm sentimental.  It'll be nice to see my grandma happy that her team won in the first round.

Dallas Mavericks vs Golden State Warriors - I don't think the Warriors can stick with the Mavericks for a whole season but I'll be rooting for them every game.  It'd be nice of the Warriors could at least win a couple!

San Antonio Spurs vs Denver Nuggets - I'm rooting for the Nuggets here.  If the Suns don't have to face the Spurs, all the better.  Sure it'd be nice to say the Suns went through all the toughest teams to get to the Finals but it'd also be nice to have an easier path there if at all possible.

Phoenix Suns vs los angeles lakers - I don't even need to answer that one.  Suns in 4 (I can only hope).
