    I am 100% going for the Lakers, but I have a feeling the Cavs will take this. Everyone is talking about how Kobe and the Lakers went to the Finals last year and learned from that...well did LeBron not do the same thing a couple years back? He had to carry the team through the whole playoffs!

    Now 2 years later, the Cavs GM did the same thing that the Lakers GM did...make decisions that will ensure them success in the future. Although Cavs have the upper hand, many of the players on the Cavs have not been this close to a championship, and are playing like they want it. Lakers have had much success in the same position.

    Let us also remember how difficult it is to win in Cleveland. They were not as together as a team back when the Lakers beat them...the same will not happen again. I can feel the series going 7 games, and the Cavs coming out on top, so long as there are no injury factors.

    Like I said, I want the Lakers to win it all, but they better improve their defense, stay outta foul trouble, and the Lakers bench will need to get more competitive.

    No doubt - Lakers are in trouble. While most are sleeping on the Bulls, others of us know better.

    The Bulls are built to run the courts. They know how to shoot the ball, and again...they run that floor! For Celtics to be successful, they need to go to CHI and keep the crowd out the game (just like the Rockets did against the Blazers), keep the Bulls off the perimeter, and allow few fast break points.

    I say it again - the Bulls are built to run the floor, and if they keep it up, they will run the Celtics out of the playoffs!

    By the way besides the Celtics bench, how many Celtics starters are capable of guarding the perimeter?

    Not to 'dog' the Celtics, because I enjoy watching Kendrick Perkins play; he has that 'all-business' attitude, but you need more than 'all-business' to stop a speedy, young team!

    Why do you want the Lakers in the Finals again? Do you want to see Kobe choke again like he did last year? LOL !!!!

    I have a feeling that even though most people have already put the Cavs and the Lakers in the Finals this year--one of them is not going to make it there.

    LET'S GO
    CHICAGO
    BULLS!!!
