2010 NBA Playoffs: Eastern & Western Conference First Round Matchups, TV Schedule, Tickets

Here we go folks! The NBA season is now over, and it’s the time of year where dreams are made, hearts are broken, and legends are born…

That’s right, it’s time for the 2010 NBA Playoffs.

I know some of you are as serious as me when it comes to the NBA. You know, you’re all over your team, you watch them, study them, brag about them (even if they suck), and you back them up as much as you can.

Then, there are those of you who will watch the game just because it’s on, and don’t mind watching a few LeBron tomahawks, or watching Kobe throw up a buzzer-beater.

Will Dwight reclaim his Eastern Conference title? Will Kevin Durant continue to surprise and dominate the NBA? Will LeBron finally get that special #1?

We’ll soon find out.

And, of course, the question that everyone is waiting to see answered: will we finally get a LeBron-Kobe battle in the NBA Finals?
