I mentioned on the podcast that Bucks/Bulls was the Eastern Conference series I was most interested in watching. Phil made a good point about it being two defensive minded teams that sometimes struggle to score so we are probably in for some sloppy ball. He's right but I wanted to clarify my point a bit.
Brooklyn doesn't interest me at all and I think Atlanta will sweep them.
Cleveland is definitely interesting but from a basketball standpoint I think they'll just demolish Boston.
Toronto vs Washington is series with two complete non-contenders that both need a shakeup.
Bucks vs Bulls has a bunch of guys that I like watching even if the games won't necessarily be a joyous basketball experience like watching GS or SA play. Giannis, Jimmy Butler, Pau, Noah, Middleton, Henson, Mirotic, Taj Gibson are all guys I like watching. There's the added drama of just how quickly will Derrick Rose tear a ligament. This is the only Eastern Conference series that has a chance of an upset.
So from an aesthetically pleasing basketball standpoint, I agree with Phil. But in terms of which Eastern Conference series am I most interested in, its Bucks/Bulls.
