    The answer really comes down to two players: Shaq and Rondo. If Rondo continues in his slump, the Celtics won't go far no matter what Shaq does. If Shaq cannot stay on the court, it's a 50/50 proposition If they both show up and play well, the Celtics will win the East and, I predict, the championship.

    Completely agree. If Rondo can get going and find his rhythm and kick this slump this are going to be very different. Ray will his shot going with open looks, Garnett will get those flawless open layups, etc. Lets hope Shaq can stay in one piece long enough haha

    I think Heat and Lakers. Lakers in six. God I hope I'm wrong. I hate the Lakers more then the Yankees. I hate to say it but they are going to tie us for most NBA titles with 17. WHY DOES ANYBODY WANT THE LAKERS IN THE FINALS? I would like to see the Celtics and Spurs. You know the Spurs from 1999 until now never get thier due. They have 4 titles in the past 12 seasons.

    I think if the Heat played the Lakers in the Finals, I truly believe the Heat would beat them in 6. I always felt the Heat matches up the BEST with the Lakers.

    I think the offensive firepower of the Heat will overwhelm them in the end, adding to the fact the Heat are a good defensive team.

    Four SI "experts" today picked the winners of the play-offs. Two of the four picked the Celtics to make it to the finals, and one picked them to win.

    Until we see how the Celtics perform in the first play-off series, I still pick Celtics Lakers.

    I would be very surprised to see Dallas make it to the finals.  They don't do well during the playoffs. 
    I expect that the Lakers will be in the NBA finals again.  I would like to see the Spurs  represent the West this year, and I suppose it is a possibility that this could happen.  I am not sure that the Celtics will represent the Eastern Conference, but I suppose it is possible.  It really depends on the status of Shaq and Delonte and how much they can contribute during the playoffs.

    I think I saw yesterday the Mavs have gone out in the first round 3 of the last 4 years, losing Caron Butler really sunk their chance as far as I am concerned.

    If Manu is less than 100% I could see the Spurs going out in the first round to the Grizz.

    You may be right about the Spurs.  I would hate to see them lose in the first round, but injuries to key players can influence any playoff series.  Without Manu they will probably struggle.  I don't believe that any other team in the Western Conference will have a chance against the Lakers

    Re: Who do you think will play in the NBA Finals?

    No predictions, NO ONE KNOWS--too many possibilities. With the way both the Celtics and the Lakers limped into the playoffs last year, most posters were saying that it was Cleveland's year. And look what happened.

    In the East it could be the Bulls, Boston or Miami. One of those 3 teams should make the finals. And they are all very capable. The question-mark with Boston is Shaq.

    In the West, it could be Oklahoma, Lakers, Spurs. But the Mavs, Blazers, or Memphis are tough.

    The key will be injuries and how the games are called by the refs. If the refs allow physical play, then it nuetralizes the advantages that younger, more athletic teams. If the games are called tight, then it advantages the physical teams.

    In the play-offs, the referees usually allow physical play. The only two games that were tightly called that I saw, were games one and two of the finals.

    It will not be Boston or LA this year. Would like to Tibs and the Bulls make it if not Boston. After Kobe's remarks for sure not going to be LA. My guess is Hornets vs. Majic.
    Posted by vertmont


    Okay...I'll bite.

    How are Kobe's "remarks" gonna keep the Lakers from getting to the Finals. Unless they change the rules over the next few days, I think they STILL have to settle it ON THE COURT. I doubt that the "offended" ref will be one working the games that Kobe is involved in.

    Tough one!!  Of course I want Celtics -Lakers!  Hmmm.. what would happen with a Celtics  OKC final.  That would be insane.   Bulls look strong.  Could go Bulls Lakers or Bulls OKC.   Heat have played well lately.  Bulls, Heat and OKC are hungry and young!!

    1) Pretty much all healthy
    2) Bynum is playing
    3) Best closer in the game (Kobe)
    4) Length and rebounding
    5) Good defense
    6) Good offense
    7) Phil Jackson is coaching them
    8) Artest is a little bulldog on defense
    9) They've been there before
    10) Swagger
    11) Lamar Odom is so versatile
    12) It's the PLAYOFFS...when they "flip the switch"!

    I could go on, but I think you get my point.
