The NBA Playoffs have been a fairly uncompetitive affair this year, besides for the Oklahoma City/Los Angeles series and Boston/Cleveland, you probably won't be able to recall a matchup that you will remember by playoff time next year.

This has caused many people to immediately begin predicting a Celtics-Lakers Finals and removing themeselves from these Conference Finals matchups. While this may be true especially in the East (how is Vince Carter treating you Orlando?) I don't agree with the idea of writing off any chance of the Suns winning.

If you look back at the Lakers/Jazz series in the second round, Game 3 was in the Jazz' hands and if they won I guarantee you that series was going six.
