A new kind of madness:

With March Madness done for the year basketball fans can now watch their favorite pro men’s basketball team compete for the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy.

The 2015 NBA (National Basketball Association) playoffs will officially start today as the first round will determine who stays and who goes back home. The playoffs consist of 4 rounds. Each matchup in all rounds is a best 4 out of 7 series.

Join the basketball craze. Follow your home town’s team. Or just follow a team you like who showcases some of the best athletes in the world. I have followed the San Antonio Spurs since I have lived there my entire life and I have loved watching the NBA Finals and playoffs. There is nothing like witnessing the game 7 matchup between two teams whom are competing for a championship title. It’s electrifying to witness history with family and friends. JOIN THE ACTION.

There is no such thing as a perfect basketball player, and I don’t believe there is only one greatest player either- Michael Jordan
