Well, it's official: The Celtics and Knicks will face off in Round 1 of the NBA playoffs.

Mike Felger and Cedric Maxwell discuss the matchup, and while Maxwell wanted the Heat in the first round, Felger is glad that it's the Knicks.

In short, Felger doesn't believe in the Knicks. He goes as far as calling Carmelo Anthony a "loser", saying that his inability to carry his team in the postseason is a glaring issue for he and the Knicks.

"Three-point shooting teams go home," Felger said of the Knicks. "That's one reason I like the Celtics in this series. I like the Celtics because I think they're better on defense. I think they're much better on defense, in fact. And thirdly, I like Garnett vs. Carmelo just from the get inside your head sort of angle. One of the games this year, Kevin Garnett said that Carmelo's ex-wife or wife tasted like a breakfast cereal. So what's it going to be this week? It was Honey Nut Cheerios a couple months ago, so now is it going to be Cap'n Crunch? Whats' the cereal this week? And that's going to crawl right inside of Carmelo's head. Carmelo Anthony - loser. Just the kind of NBA player I hate."

Maxwell isn't so quick to write off Melo and the Knicks.

How do you think this series will play out?
