Question of the Day Poll – Who Will Win the NBA Playoffs 2012? (May 24 2012)

NBA Playoffs Wallpaper

Who will win the 2012 NBA Playoffs this year? Heat? Spurs? 76ers? Celtics, Thunder? Pacers?

What Team Will Win the NBA Playoffs 2012?

The Poll of the Day for May 24th, 2012, is… what American National Basketball Association Team do you think will win the NBA Playoffs this year?

Following a knock-out, dragout fight, many of the team’s that people thought would “go all the way”, have been eliminated. This includes the mighty Los Angeles Lakers and his Kobe Bryant squad (although Derek Fisher is now on the team that defeated them, the Oklahoma City Thunder!), the phenomenal Blake Griffin squad of the Los Angeles Clippers and the reigning kings of last year, the Dallas Mavericks and with powerhouses Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd. All of whom were knocked out before making it to the semi-finals round.

We are now down to six teams… Whom do YOU think will turn out on top and win it all? Also leave a comment telling me what team is your personal favorite to win.

You can choose from the following:

* The San Antonio Spurs of the State of Texas.
* The Oklahoma City Thunder of the State of Oklahoma.
* The Miami Heat of the State of Florida.
* The Boston Celtics of the State of Massachusetts.
* The Philadelphia 76ers of the State of Pennsylvania.
* The Indiana Pacers of the State of Indiana.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but this seems to be one of the most diverse lineups we’ve had in a LONG time. Naturally I was cheering for the Phoenix Suns but they didn’t make the playoffs this year. *sad panda*

My choice to go all the way is definitely the Oklahoma City Thunder. However I would LOVE to see The Pacers take it all the way (especially because they have ex-Suns Leandro Barbosa and Louis “Lou” Amundson, two players whom I LOVE).

Another team who would be really great to see make it to the end are the 76ers, a team so understated that you forget they even exist! Very, very surprised to see them in the finals.

As more kids prefer to talk to their friends in person than online or via text or other platforms. “According to the report, teens’ favorite way to communicate with their friends is by talking in person (49%), with texting next (33%) and social media a distant third (7%). Teens who prefer talking face-to-face say it’s because it’s more fun (38%), and they can better understand what people mean (29%). The telephone, a mainstay of teenage life just a generation ago, is virtually dead: Only 4% of teens prefer to talk on the phone.”

However you can use a program like Windows Movie Maker to string several installments together into one video.

Jeremy Lin’s In Jesus Name I Play Bracelet

In Jesus Name I Play Jeremy Lin Bracelet

Jeremy Lin's In Jesus Name I Play Bracelet By Active Faith

Jeremy Lin’s popularity has exploded, as has his “In Jesus I Play” bracelet. So where does the bracelet come from?

If you enjoy this article please like it at the top of the website and share it on Facebook and Twitter, I’d greatly appreciate it! And leave a comment if you’re so inclined. :)

It comes from a company called “Active Faith”, created by a former player of the D-League (which is where he met Jeremy Lin) named Lanny Smith. Lanny wanted to come up with an idea that would meld his two great loves, his love for Jesus and his Christian faith, and that of his favorite sports.

Jeremy Lin Graces Cover of Sports illustrated and Time Magazine!

In Jesus Name I Play Active Faith Bracelet on Jeremy Lin in Center Spotlight (Time Magazine, Sports Illustrated Covers!)

So he came up with the idea of the bracelet/arm band that players can wear and other clothing items that show off their faith with the tagline, “In Jesus’ Name I Play”! Of course, once Jeremy Lin and other players started wearing them, sales took off like a rocket and the rest is history! Don’t you wish you could come up with such a cool idea?

Here’s an In Jesus Name I Play Jeremy Lin Bracelet interview from Fox News with Lanny Smith discussing Linsanity and the bracelets.

I gotta get me some of these myself! What a great cause!

How To Download Full NBA Games

Jeremy Lin. The Man. The Legend.

A very cool pic of current NBA Fav, Jeremy Lin

Where can I download NBA Games you ask? It’s a common question, because let’s face it, not everyone has the time, the DVR hard-drive space, or the money to pay for access to all of the NBA games (many people I know, in these tough times, have foregone cable TV completely). It’d be much easier to just download them, correct. Correct.

If you enjoy this article please like it at the top of the website and share it on Facebook and Twitter, I’d greatly appreciate it! And leave a comment if you’re so inclined. :)

Hit the link above and you’ll find a great place to do so. Please remember to continue supporting the NBA by watching the games on TV whenever you can, or going to games when you are flush with cash enough to purchase tickets to see your home team play.

As for me, I often find downloading to be the most convenient way to watch the games, even though I have them set to record on my DVR, there are times when it is full or the game gets accidentally erased, etc. and I miss a game. In which case downloading comes in handy. You’ll need a torrent program in order to get the games, I suggest uTorrent. Simply open the program, download the torrent, and then click on the downloaded torrent file to start the download.

I do not endorse downloading NBA Games or the consequences thereof, you do so at your own discretion and risk. Now catch up on all those games you missed out on!
