NBA ‘offs Update

April 24, 2022

Three teams took (3-0) NBA preliminary round series leads, the ’67 NBA final opponents, the Warriors and 76ers and last night the Celtics, in every final from (’57-’69) except the one in ’67.

Philly still leads Toronto (3-1) while Golden State today at Denver, and the Celtics tomorrow at truly underachieving Brooklyn, will attempt to complete 4 game sweeps.

Likely “quarters” opponents for the Sixers and Celts, are the Miami Heat and defending champion, Milwaukee Bucks, each with (2-1) series leads vs Atlanta (Hawks) and Chicago (Bulls) respectively.

Why do I feel there will be yet another Sixers/Celtics semi. There is still a long way to go before that manifests, if it ever does.

The following players, coaches and officials involved in the referenced 1967 NBA final, won by Philly in 6 games, vs the then S.F. Warriors, made the “Hall.”
