First off, ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED??

Round 1 of these NBA playoffs proved to be the most riveting and captivating opening round in recent memory. With top seeds being placed on the brink of elimination and miscellaneous drama ranging from DeJuan Blair and Zach Randolph’s on court anger to a certain racist, white owner’s anger off the court, there has been no shortage of conversation worthy material as the post season came in hot.
