Vote: What's the state of the NBA's Elite Eight?

 Tim Duncan
Could it be? Are Tim Duncan and the Spurs on their way out?
After arguably the best first round the NBA playoffs have ever seen, the conference semis certainly haven't disppointed.

Overtime games. Buzzer-beaters. Teams like the Cavaliers and Clippers have played more like uninvited guests than playoff newbies. ESPN.com's NBA experts took an Conference Semifinalist Questionnaire in an attempt to evaluate what these series mean to each of the NBA's final eight squads.

We want your take as well, SportsNation! Should those Cavaliers and Clippers enjoy the ride while it lasts? Or is this just the start of many return trips deep into the postseason? Are the Spurs on their last leg, or just building the drama for a great comeback and another NBA title?

Provide your answers to the questions below, then compare them to the rest of SportsNation, and ESPN.com's expert panel.
