Washington Wizards vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
Out of all eight of the NBA playoff match ups this post season, this series with LeBron James taking on Gilbert Arenas and company will be one of the best along with the Spurs and Suns.
These two teams match up with each other pretty evenly, obvious no one besides Kobe Bryant can really play one on one with King James, but honestly, if the Wizards have a healthy Gilbert Arenas and can somewhat contain LeBron from doing what he did to Detroit last season, Washington will win this series.
The Wizards Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison and role players like Deshawn Stevenson will be key for the Wizards against the Cavs as they will cause match up problems all series long. If the Cavs can figure out a way to stop Arenas and his talented supporting cast then I believe the Cavs have a chance to take the series in 6 or 7 Games, but if they cant keep up then Gilbert and his boys will be making their way to the next round after 5 or 6 Games.
LeBron has some decent players to help him out down the stretch like Ben Wallace, Delonte West and Wally Szczerbiak, but I just dont think they are players that can step up and like the Jamison and Butler can for Washington.
Keep your eyes on this series as it could be one of the most entertaining in the first round of these playoffs!
