There are playoff games going on still, right?

I'm tired of talking about free agency and the upcoming draft, so I turned on ESPN and I was shocked to find an NBA playoff game going on.

With all the LeBron talk, the rejected "prom date" (Bosh) and trade requests for Al Jefferson, we're forgetting that Orlando, Boston, Phoenix and the LA Kobe's are still playing ball.  The 2010 NBA playoffs aren't over yet.  So far, Boston put Orlando in a 3-0 hole, only to watch Orlando steal game 4, and now they look commanding in game 5.  As for the LA-Phoenix series, both teams have held serve.

Before that, the first round provided some quick series (Orlando swept Charlotte; Boston and Cleveland won in 5), 4 good west first round matchups (LA/OK City, Dallas/San Antonio, Phoenix/Portland and Utah/Denver were all over in 6, but were pretty good games)...and that 7 game series between an undermanned Milwaukee team against Team Jeckell and Hyde (Atlanta).

The second round: 3 sweeps (Orlando over Atlanta, LA over Utah and Phoenix over San Antonio) and then there was "Apathy Gate" in the Boston/Cleveland series.  Boston would win and catapult the LeBron talk.

My questions guys are this: do we just not care about these playoffs because the 2nd round spoiled it for us?  Do we just not care since the Rockets did not make it to the postseason?  Did Boston take some of the air out of the Conference finals with that 3-0 lead?

The answers: no, 3 2nd round sweeps did not spoil the playoffs; yes it stinks that Houston's not in, but there are some good matchups out there; and they sort of did, but Orlando looks good in Game 5 now, making it more of a series.

What does everyone else think so far?

No cursing in title. No pirated material, such as links to online game streams. Do not cut/paste entire sections of content from other websites. Thanks.
