2010 NBA Playoffs Expert Picks: Round 2

King Lebron James is in a prime position to power his way through the playoffs and contend for a championship. (ifanboy.com)

With Round 1 done, Round 2 has begun. Already, the Celtics blew another game with Cleveland and the Lakers held on to beat Utah. The Spurs and Suns will clash, while the Magic look to take advantage of a surprisingly struggling Hawks team. All of this is in the wake of Lebron James being the tenth man to win League MVP in consecutive years. Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, and Larry Bird make for good company.

Once again, our expects have pretty much agreed on what will happen in the East, but the West is another story. The better seeded Suns and Lakers are still favored to face off, but it’s not unanimous. Two have the Jazz advancing, just as three have the Spurs doing so, but it’s worth noting nobody has both doing so.

But enough jabbing. I’m sure you’re all interested in seeing which teams everyone picked and by how much. As usual, experts get two points for correctly guessing a series winner and one point for correctly guessing how many games each series will last.
