WATCHING THE WARRIORS ON TV RIGHT NOW: And thinking there's no way Uncle Cliffy is making the playoffs this year--which would be a first time for him, unless one of his Phoenix teams didn't make the playoffs. Playing for Portland for most of your career is a good way to make a lot of playoff series, though that's another streak that will probably end at the end of the season. And I would love it if the Hawkerrific Blazers or the Warriors got in but there's way too much talent in the West's top eight. As I think Tolbert pointed out tonight, the Western Conference Finals are going to be must-see television; there's so little separation between the teams, unless the Lakers suddenly become the unstoppable force they were supposed to be coming in.
