Default Most Entertaining 1st Round West Matchups

I would love it if this happened:

#1 Spurs vs. #8 Lakers: two veteran teams going at it, really great matchup duncan, ginobli, parker vs. kobe, dwight, nash, gasol

#2 Thunder vs. #7 Rockets: Harden playing against the former team that traded him after throwing him under the bus for the Heat series in the finals, revenge series? fear the beard? Rockets could secretly activate Royce White since he'd be able to drive to all their games, the X-factor

#3 Nuggets vs. #6 Warriors: Two run and gun 3pt shootout teams, both teams have 2 of the loudest arenas during the playoffs

#4 Grizzlies vs. #5 Clippers: Blake Griffin/Zach Randolph wrestling is enough to make this entertaining, not to mention the two feisty little guys, Cp3 and Conley. Who could forget Zach Randolph's Suplex on Blake Griffin?

Thoughts? Yay or nay?

I wouldn't complain. Would be nice to see Blazers or TWolves in there though.

I completely agree. Those are dream matchups.

Lakers vs Spurs rivalry,Harden against his former team,Grizzlies vs Clippers rivalry,battle between two of the most exciting teams in the league in Warriors and Nuggets.

Thunder didn't throw Harden under the bus, he threw his team under the bus if anything

The We Believe matchup against Dirk was great. But now we don't believe, and we don't belong, we just, well, we suck

Jazz interchangable with Warriors at this point. Both teams hard to beat at home.

Let me cure that pessimism, my friend.
Your team has one of the youngest cores to build around and it also has a lot of great assets to use for a trade. GSW are one/two smart moves away from legit tittle contender and add that Klay and Steph are getting better each year - a team that fans dream of. Barnes are also a great prospect.

That Clippers // Grizzlies rematch would by far be the most entertaining when you consider subplots. A back to back playoff series would solidify this as an official new rivalry in the NBA.

Could we let CF86 back for just two weeks during the series? Won't be the same without him and the Grizzlies posters hurling insults at each other.

oh man, if CF86 comes back, those Grizzlies-Clippers game threads will be 2000 pages long.

I'd rather see GSW play the Clippers and Denver against Memphis, otherwise, yes. Totally agree.

I'd make such an effort to watch every game if this went down.

are u serious? For some reason I don't see it. The warriors don't have anyone that slashes to the hoop and draws fouls plus thru give up threes uncontested
