The "I Told You So" Edition

Back before the second round started we the staff here at Purple and Blues did a roundtable on who would win each series and in how many games.  The way things are shaping up it looks like I’ll be right on my predictions  (at least as for as who wins each series).  Here’s a look back at that article if you’re interested http://purpleandblues.com/2013/05/05/3-on-3-nba-playoff-edition/.

The Grizzlies I said would be too much for a Westbrookless Thunder team and that they’d be lucky to get a game.  I called Memphis in 4, off by 1.

The Heat I said would sweep and the Bulls surprised everyone except for my staff writer Roury McDermott, who said the Bulls would win game one and then lose 4 straight (taking his talents to Vegas in the off-season).  Also off by 1

The Spurs I said would win in 6 and that the Warriors would scare San Antonio.  Right now if the Spurs win tomorrow night that will be exactly right.

And lastly the I said the Pacers in 7 which right now is looking like 5 but the Knicks do go home for this one so either way Pacers looking like they will move on as well.

What this all means? Absolutely nothing except for a little bit I get to act like I know what I’m talking about.  I’m also the guy that predicted the Nuggets would win it all this year before Gallo went out so obviously that looks foolish now.

The real question will be can anybody take Miami to 7 or pull off a miracle upset?  The answer: Memphis can
