Former Yahoo! Sports writer and Fully Clips FanSided editor Brandon LaChance (@LaChance_Writer) co-hosts a special edition of the Dig N Shot show with Presto’s own Brett David Roberts (@BDRHoops).  We hit each series hard, and the fact we agree on pretty much every matchup only further indicates that we should be men investing much of our life savings in the sports betting arena.  But we can’t all just go put our full paycheck down on the hunch, just because we are always right, given the fact we have responsibilities and people who would intensely scrutinize our actions.

All I am doing is summing up the situation of our listeners and hoops heads who just can’t get enough of doing what we do on this episide:  Make predictions and try to stand by them.

How could I not accidentally mention the oldest team in basketball?

We will inevitably podcast before the conclusion of the first round, and the overriding assumption of “Dig” LaChance and I is that we’ll pretty much be saying “M’hm, m’hm, we pretty much nailed it.”

That said, here’s a look at who LaChance and I believe to be the winners of the eight playoff series, staring with the Eastern Conference which features the defending champion Miami Heat.  Dig N Shot don’t get into winners much this episode, but we allude enough to the fact that we do both expect LBJ & Co. back there, while Dig and I differ on their potential opponent:  Dig goes with the perennial powerhouse of San Antonio, while I can’t go against a team with two of the best four scorers in the league with the 50/40/90 28 point per game averages of Durant and a point guard who is good enough to still be considered a 1a/1b option playing alongside of him.

That said, let’s get to how we think think things will unravel throughout this opening round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs.
