The NBA Playoffs after the first round


I know this may not really be the place for it, but has anyone noticed how god awful the playoffs have been since the first round ended?  Even in our sweep we showed heart and passion unlike this Cleveland team who has been the #1 team two years in a row in the regular season and is pathetic to watch against the Celts.  Atlanta...didn't even look like they wanted to be there ALL series against Orlando.  Utah outside of Boozer and D Williams showed no heart. No drive to win.  Hell the LAKERS in their domination looked like they didn't even care.  The Suns showed passion, but still managed to break the will of a seemingly shaken Spurs team who just didn't seem to want to push it over the edge after beating the Mavs.  WHAT IS GOING ON in the NBA?  These are not the playoffs I've grown accustomed to.  The past few years' playoffs have been nothing short of AMAZING.  Great heartfelt play.  7 game series' left and right.  OT.  Upsets. Heartbreak.   The only heartbreak this year was the fact Charlotte got matched up against the ONE team it couldn't compete against.  Maybe it's because I'm used to watching the Cats.  Play poorly for 3 quarters and come out gunning in the 4th.  WANTING that win.  Who knows, but as a fan of basketball  I feel truly let down by what this year has had to offer.  Now the ONLY thing that can keep me watching is a Suns-Magic finals, because unless Cleveland comes back in the 4th tonight they're done.  I'm sick of Boston. I'm sick of Orlando. I'm sick of the Lakers.  Sorry for the rant, but I had to get it out and put it somewhere.
