Boston in 7. (my brain says LA in 6). But i think the Celtics bench is better than the Lakers. i think Gasol will choke. I think Odom will have 1 great game and disappear. (wishful thinking?). but the key is obviously Kobe. I think the Celtics will let Kobe be Kobe and still find a way to win. Phil is the genius, but Doc Rivers deserves alot of credit. in Doc I trust.

I don't think it will be 7 games... probably more like 6. As far as who wins the series, it really does depend on the bench. Big Baby plays outstanding even when you don't expect him to, and I'm not sure if Ray Allen has ever missed a big shot. Pierce is also very reliable. KG doesn't make many game-winning ones for them but he brings consistent play throughout the game.

Gasol might choke, but he will be much more reliable than Odom who likely won't even show up for one game (if that). Kobe will dominate as usual. He is the reason they have made it this far. Had he not dominated the last game, the Suns would've pushed the series further.

Lakers in 7.

Just a reminder it is a 2-3-2 format.

I agree. I think that the Celtics will work more on the people around Kobe than Kobe himself. to be honest I think the combo of Ray Allen and Pierce can match Kobe big shot for big shot. im not comparing them, bc Kobe won't be stopped. but i will say that they could offset. will they is the big question. and once again as we said, the bench is key. I think the Celtics bench is clearly better than the Lakers.

I hate the 2-3-2 format. I think it favors the #2.

True. But it depends on the match up IMO. If the Celtics can steal one of the first 2 games, then they have the advantage though. Both teams are very good home teams, so I think the series has a high chance to go to 7.

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*).

Artest owns Pierce and dominates him defensively. Pierce shots something like 32 percent from the field against Artest. Plus they'll probably have Pierce on Kobe on the other end of the floor. So pretty much expect Pierce to have crap tons of turnovers and poor shooting in the 27 - 34 percent range. He'll probably end up averaging 10 points and 4-5 turnovers a game in this series.

Not saying Boston can't win, just don't expect Pierce to be the one doing the damage in this series. For Boston to win, Rondo and Allen have to play lights out.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
