This year’s edition of the NBA playoffs is sure to exceed the excitement level of its regular season, as a number of potentially great match ups seem to be on the horizon. The subplots of the season have been magnified, as we still have the same questions we had at the beginning of the season:

Just how far can Derrick Rose take the Bulls?

Can Boston flip that switch for one final run?

Will Carmelo and Amare restore greatness to The Big Apple?

Those questions and more will be answered during what is sure to be a memorable playoff. In anticipation for an epic postseason, let’s look at the Eastern Conference and preview each of the matchups that are about to occur in round one.
