NBA Playoffs 2017: Way-Too-Early Round-by-Round Predictions

National NBA Featured Columnist March 8, 2017 NBA Playoffs 2017: Way-Too-Early Round-by-Round Predictions 1 of 16 Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images Yes, these round-by-round playoff predictions are too early. It says so right in the title. At this stage, what we can’t forecast over the season’s final six weeks or so—health, hot streaks, cold spells—outweighs what we can. Still, we’ve got 60-plus games of data for all 30 teams and enough head-to-head precedent to get a decent sense of how potential matchups could shake out. That’s enough information to make some…

the fault Dear Brutus is with out top end recruiting

Jack Hall said: ↑ Cant be easy to recruit kids from the Northeast but they would play only half their meaningful games in the NE. Not to mention, if they are going to play a bunch of games in south, they can just go to uk, dook, ul , etc and play most of their games in the south and in fact live in the warmer climate of the south.

MARCH 9: Joe Lunardi & USA Today: IOWA is one of 1st Four OUT; Jerry Palm: IOWA is on the Bubble | Page 3

But what sucks is what ESPN thinks: Syracuse will play Miami Wednesday in the ACC tournament’s 8/9 game. That the Orange finished with a No. 8 seed is a pretty good indication of just how much better they were over the final six weeks of the season (when they beat Virginia, Duke and Florida State) than they were early on (when they lost to Boston College, UConn, Georgetown and St. John’s, by 33 points). Thanks to its seed, Syracuse doesn’t have to worry about taking a bad loss. It will…

Lafonso Ellis just said Tatum was the most gifted offensive freshman this year | Page 2

Love our Cats…IMO Josh Jackson has been the best freshman this year. Lonzo Ball would be more likable… if his dad would shut his pie whole, makes it hard to route for him and that’s a shame. Great instincts, a lot of things you cant teach. That funny looking 3 point shot will be more inconsistent at the NBA range but he’ll make his $ driving to finish and creating for others. I haven’t seen Fultz play to have an opinion on him… but his stats are very impressive but…

Political correctness sends ACC from Tobacco Road to Brooklyn

Political correctness sends ACC from Tobacco Road to Brooklyn (Paul Mirengoff) For decades, the ACC basketball tournament has been held almost exclusively in North Carolina, along “Tobacco Road.” Between 1954, the first year of the tournament, and 1975, it took place in that state every year. Following a trip to Landover, Maryland in 1976 (where Virginia won its first championship), the tourney returned to North Carolina for six of the next eight seasons. After a few visits to Landover and Atlanta, it was held in the Tar Heel State for…

Grayson Allen enjoyed watching most of Duke’s win from his seat on bench

Grayson Allen, sitting on a bench in the Islanders locker room, which is Duke’s headquarters during the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament this week, insisted that he actually enjoyed the view from his courtside chair during the game. Allen, a preseason contender for national player of the year who has become college basketball’s most controversial player, had plenty of time to watch Duke’s 79-72 win over Clemson in a second-round game at Barclays Center. He played only 12 minutes. He also scored no points and made his only impression by firing…
