----------------------------------------------

Ive been picking LA every series of this playoff. This is where I stop. Give me Boston in 6 games please. The Celtics are back and are playing some great basketball right now. The defense is clicking, Paul Pierce is playing better, their bench guys like Nate Robinson, Sheed, Tony Allen, & Big Baby are stepping up huge. I think Rondo can dominate this series, and I think Garnett & Perkins will slow down Gasol & Bynum. This is more than likely the last hurrah for the Big 3, and I think they go out with a bang winning their 2nd title (both over the Lakers) in 3 years.

this will be an incredible series for sure! Two great ball teams going head to head! I'm a die hard Laker fan so can't bet against them, but I will say, they have their hands full and Boston doesn't lose too many final series!!!

Anybody but LA

Personally I don't like either team in the series, but I'll take the lesser of two evils.

I hope Boston whoops their ass

Will be great.
I got to go with the Celtics to win it, they are just playing too good.

I know this is what Lakers fans wanted.

Artest is the difference between the Lakers from 2 years ago. Lakers in 6, I think Artest takes who ever he's on out of the series. Boston will have to rely on Rondo to win this series, he has to take over for Boston to win.

By the way, props to KT for continuing to put together these excellent threads and Modding the NBA forum.
The other Mods are like County workers leaning on a shovel compared to KT! :ciappa:

Artest isn't going to show up when they need him the most, this time.


The Celtics will fight hard but I think the Lakers will win it (*Pukes*).

Some things to keep in mind...

-Boston Celtics have 17 championships, most in NBA history. Head to head in the NBA Finals they are 9-2 all time vs. the Lakers
-Boston is a better "road" team in this playoff than they are at home. They've gotten road wins every series, the sign of a championship caliber team.
-Boston has gone thru Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, & Dwight Howard to get to the NBA Finals, 3 1st team All-NBAers, so they know a little something about beating teams with superstar players.
-Boston has beaten the top 2 seeds in this playoff (Cleveland, Orlando)
-Boston is the best team in the NBA at defending 3PT shots, and just shut down the team who attempts the most in Orlando.
-The Big 3 has never lost a playoff series.

This is Boston's series to lose. I see Rondo getting his 1st Finals MVP.
