Things to Look Forward To

I was hanging out with a buddy last night who was complaining about the now likely-looking prospect of Golden State defeating Dallas. He really wants to see a Dallas-Houston rematch. I had been looking forward to just such a matchup back when I took a Mavericks victory for granted, but that's crazy -- Houston versus Golden State promises the astounding spectacle of Al Harrington attempting to guard Yao Ming and vice versa.

Alternatively, in case of a Utah victory we hardcore fans will at least get to appreciate a second round matchup shockingly free of bankable star power. Boozer! Davis! Nobody's ever heard of these guys!
