2000 Western Conference Finals: One of the more dramatic playoff series of all-times. Best remembered for an incredible come-back but should also be remembered for the start of the Lakers dynasty for the next few seasons. Lakers were led by Shaquille O'Neal & a young Kobe Bryant facing a top Portland team led by Scottie Pippen, Rasheed Wallace & Steve Smith.

2000 Eastern Conference Semi-Final: This would be the 4th consecutive year and final time this teams would meet in the playoffs in their current forms. This was a war with 7 battles. Every battle was decided by less than 10 points. The Heat were again led by Tim Hardaway and Alonzo Mourning with the Knicks löed by Latrell Sprewell, Patrick Ewing and Allan Houston. A classic series that showcased what the non-Jordan years were like. Every game a tough defensive battle to the very last minute.
