2009 NBA Conference Semifinal Schedule

A couple things that I do not like about the NBA playoffs is the unbearable length of the first round and that they start and schedule the 2nd round games sometimes before the first round is over. I do not understand why they cannot wait a day or so, but alas, with the western conference semifinals starting tomorrow, I should get the schedules (or at least what has been released of them) up ASAP. And as always, this will be updated on a daily (or almost daily basis) with the scores of each game so instead of navigating the NBA website, you can just click on the sidebar link (this also helps me keep track of what is going on in each series seeing as I learn a lot by writing it out). Enough about me, though, here is the 2009 NBA Conference Semifinal schedule! (all times eastern)

  1. I am going to live blog the Celtics-Bulls game. I will send you the normal stuff if you are interested.

  2. Perez walks Moyer and walks home a run!!! He sucks!!!


  3. I'll probably be around for most of TV is working now so it should be easier.

  4. And why would I want Omar Minaya fired? I like the Mets sucking! ;-)

    If I were the Mets manager, I would have Oliver Perez be the team's 1st starter. ;-)


  5. Mind that Bird at 50 to 1 odds wins the Kentucky Derby.

  6. Mine that Bird winning the Derby is the second biggest upset in Derby history.
