2009 NBA Conference Quarterfinal Schedule

Yes, I know that I'm sure that in a few minutes AA will have his own schedule up, but I enjoy creating my own and putting them up on my sidebar so that I can always reference them quickly. And while I'm not the biggest NBA follower, I do not remember the NBA playoffs starting this early. I thought there was a bigger difference of time from when the Stanley Cup playoffs started to when the NBA Playoffs started. Maybe the NHL was a few days later this year. Well, regardless, here is this year's schedule. (all times eastern) (all announcers courtesy of Awful Announcing

I'll add the announcers next to the TV channel as they become unveiled over the coming days.

Despite beating Cleveland on their own court last night in overtime, the Sixers have not been looking too good as of late. And LeBron James did not play at all, which helped the Sixers greatly. but back to the playoffs, they, in my opinion, drew the best opponent they possibly could in the Orlando Magic. Despite playing them close, the Sixers have not been able to beat the Celtics at all, then again, they have not been able to beat the Magic at all this year, either, but the Magic have never completely blown them out either. Even though I will be paying more attention to the Stanley Cup playoffs, the NBA playoffs look quite fun as well. And while I will try to watch the Sixers at all games, if they conflict with the Flyers, I'm going with the hockey, because frankly, the Flyers could not play worse than they played last night.

  1. And as we all know, the first round of the NBA playoffs takes one whole year to complete.
