Give me the Nuggs in 6 games please. Chauncey Billups & Carmelo will be a force this series. Denver's bigs will out tough LA's and get the Nuggs to their first Finals appearance ever.

Lakes in 6.
This is why you want home court, the Nuggets were a .500 road team.

But they've also won their last 16 home games and have won several road games in the playoffs. George Karl has the personnel this year to present some matchup problems for the Lake Show.

I'm completely up in the air on the outcome, but I do know that this has the potential to be a great series.

True dat, Billups is a winner with experience. But this time I expect the Lakers to be 2-0 before they hit the road.

Denver in 6, way too tough. After seeing the Lakers go to 7 games against a T-Mac less and for half the series Yao Less Rockets team, there is no way the Lakers win this series. They won't be able to pound it inside against Nene, K-mart, and the Birdman.

I say Lakers in 6. I'm hoping they feel bad enough for having to go to 7 against the Rockets. They will look to demolish the Nuggets.

I kinda find it funny the Carolina Fans backing George Karl and going against LA (Kobe loves him some Coach K and would have went to Duke if he would have went to College)

Lakers could win, but in order to do so, the bench must play better.

...and no more 20-1 point deficits 5 minutes into the game.


Go Lakers.
