    Default ESPN Playoff Predictor: Magic Won 3 Times

    So ESPN's got this fun little playoff predictor machine (http://espn.go.com/nba/playoffs/predictions) that simulates the all the match ups. I did it three times, and each time the Magic ended up as the champions.

    Also, Dallas kept getting "upset" in the conference finals. Which sucks, cuz Nowitzki's my favourite player (along with Ginobili).

    It's kind of fun, try it.

    Just tried it one more time (with 'current standings' every time), and the Magic met the Mavs in the finals...except the Mavs won. YAY!

    How stupid is that thing?
    If you run it 100 times, the raptors will beat the cavs 4 times..
    so its all luck, don't know why you call it fun..

    Maybe even less than that (Raptors beating Cavs), but it's still fun.

    I rolled Magic, Nuggets, Lakers in the three times I ran the first option.

    I tried making my own brackets from the bottom teams in the East and West. Not once did the Raptors even make it to the conference finals. The Raptors lose pretty consistently to three teams: New York (who is favoured over the Raps), Chicago (who is favoured over the Raps) and Detroit that keeps upsetting the Raps.

    So, it is a little bogus.
