With no Sonics, do you cheer for someone else?

With the Sonics already working on their backswings, who do you cheer for in the NBA playoffs?

I am hoping to see the Clippers beat the Lakers in round two, assuming both advance. I am also looking forward to a very intense second round collision between the Mavs and Spurs. I don't find a whole lot in the East that interests me at this point. I'd love to see the Heat crash back down to reality and the Bulls advance. If I had to say I was cheering for a team, it would be the Clippers. Sure I can't stand their owner Donald Sterling, but it's hard to dislike guys Elton Brand, plus seeing Kobe and Phil eat some humble pie is always fun.

In the end though, I don't see anyone stopping a rematch of the Spurs and Pistons in the Finals, with the edge to the Pistons because Flip Saunders has taught them how to score. What do you think?
