Being that the West is still all up in the air....What team do you least want the Hornets to face in the first round?

I went w/ the Warriors, i dont know why but they scare the heck out of me b/c they can play our game better than we can on the offensive end, and they are a likely candidate w/ our records at this point

For whatever reason the warriors are the ONLY team that really scares me. I know that is stupid but its true. The Jazz are second on the list just cause of their home record but we would have home court anyway.

By the way, how many games are in Round 1. Best of 5 or 7?

I voted Warriors because them Denver, Dallas and Houston are the teams we are most likely to play in the first round. I don't think we will see the Spurs at that time. The Warriors scare me for one big reason:

How motivated do you think Baron Davis will be facing Byron Scott, his former team and the PG everyone is saying is the best in the game? I'm going to say a solid 9 on the vengeance scale.

I'll go with the Jazz, but I think we would be OK if we managed to get homecourt advantage. The Spurs are a very close second because of their experience, but we haven't had that much trouble with them in the regular season.

im hoping it stays that way:9:...im kind of nervous to see how our guys react to the intesity of the playoffs; however,in all honesty, i believe there is no other player that can trump experience like CP

yes, Baron is extremely tough and CP loves to play passing lanes and w/ a guy like Davis you have to be constantly in his grill..he's a tough matchup for any playmaking PG because he makes you play honest on defense, but i always like how the Warriors can implode at any point in the game after missing a few straight shots..but it seems like theyre better now w/o Richardson, which i didnt think could happen...Ellis and Jackson are playing great as well

This is probably as perfect a description of the Warriors that I have seen, from Truehoop.com:

"If sports are an analogy for war, then the Warriors, it occurs to me, play the role of terrorists. They'll never rule, but they'll take somebody down with them."

Dang, can I change my answer to the Spurs? Those guys sure know how to turn it up when the time is right.

The Jazz basically out-physical us at 4 of 5 positions

since we're a team geared more to run, that worries me

(I voted after GS got bumped)

Okay not only have the Lakers not made it past the first round of the playoffs since Shaq left, but there's no way we'll face them in the first round. rif
