20 Questions from the Association- Playoff Week 1 Review

Is it just me, or…

Is Derrick Rose so special, he’s difficult to sum up?

Is Shane Battier poised to be this generation’s Robert Horry?

Regardless of their Round 2 opponent (assuming they’re able to close out the Spurs), do the Dallas Mavericks look like a threat to reach the Western Conference Finals?

Is Rajon Rondo on the verge of making The Leap to “full-blown superstar”?

Are the Lakers just plain good enough to overcome their fleeting attention span?

Have the Hornets set record for quickest turnaround from “up-and-coming contender” to “missed their window”?

Is it about time for Dwight Howard to produce a truly dominant performance?

Was the Pistons’ inability to capitalize on the Cavs' 9-point Game 3 3rd quarter not much of a surprise?

Do the Blazers’ bigs look like they’re capable of consistently stopping Yao Ming?

For all their debilitating injuries (including the obvious wear-and-tear on Paul Pierce), are the Boston Celtics showing some great, old-school championship pride?

With Tony Parker, Chris Paul, Chauncey Billups, Deron Williams, Rajon Rondo and Derrick Rose all at the top of their respective games, will point guard play elevate these playoffs to new heights?

Will Greg Oden be chronically foul-prone until he starts receiving the D-Wade treatment from the referees?

Is Luis Scola becoming the best player on the Houston Rockets?

Do the Hornets need Chris Paul to channel Game-3-CP3 just to have a chance in any game?

Does the “Carmelo Anthony-LeBron James-Dwyane Wade” debate now look like an elementary school “which of these doesn’t belong” question?

Will LaMarcus Aldridge only reach his potential when he commits to developing an inside game?

Are gamblers everywhere devastated to see the Detroit Pistons departure from the postseason?

In addition to the Sixth Man of the Year award, does Jason Terry deserve at least one (even 10th place) MVP vote?

Is this year’s surprising playoff performance by the Atlanta Hawks a lot less cool than last year’s?

Should the Orlando Magic be scared to death of Andre Iguodala in Game 5?
