The NBA Playoffs

Pro Basketball:  In addition to Stanley Cup Playoffs (Our Letter 60 < http://exploreamerica.info/what_letter_English_60.htm  > ), the NBA (National Basketball Association) Playoffs are in progress.  After the regular season, the 16 best teams were selected based upon the regular season results. They have been fighting to become the champions for the 2003-2004 season. The defending champions, the L.A. Lakers (which have Shaquille OíNeil and Kobe Bryant) already lost the playoffs to the San Antonio Spurs (which have Tim Duncan).  The Spurs have advanced to Final Four.

The Minnesota Timberwolves, which have Kevin Garnett, were selected as one of the 16 teams. Unfortunately, they were eliminated and didnít make it to the Elite Eight.  We're looking forward to a better performance next season.
