    Here's the schedule and the first round match-ups.

    Some interesting match-ups in the first round. I'm really looking forward to some of these series.

    Agree. I'm really looking forward to the Anthony vs. LeBron match-up.

    Also, should be interesting to see if Tyson Chandler will give the Heat some fits once again in the Playoffs.

    I lost a lot of interest when the Suns were eliminated. I'll still watch sporadically, but it probably won't be must-see stuff for me with the NHL playoffs still going. I'll probably get into it by the conference finals.

    Indiana/Orlando is the Florida/New Jersey of these playoffs.

    Long as OKC/LAL square off in Round 2, I'm good.

    I can't express how much I would love to see the Spurs get bounced in Round 1 again.

    An annual rite of spring ... the Bucks playing golf during the playoffs.

    I grew up a Sonics fan and root for the Thunder still, but I still think they're the too-trendy pick. I'd love nothing more than to see them win it all, but I fear an early upset, meaning either Dallas in round 1 or the Lakers in 2.

    Derrick Rose with some sort of knee injury with 1:10 to play in a double-digit victory. Helped off the floor after spending a few minutes down for the count. Hurt it going up for a shot in the lane.

    Uh, oh.
