Lakers in 7, only due to home court.
Each team steals an away game.

Give me the Magic in 6 games. If the Magic shooters perform like they did against the Cavs they will have no problem beating LA. Kobe will get his points, the key is Dwight Howard dominating the offensive glass and keeping Pau Gasol off it. And Rashard Lewis stepping up for the Magic.

The Magic have more or less 3 cast offs in thier starting 5. Alston, Turg and Lewis.
But they have so many productive players its not funny.
That Pietrus guy had a superb series vs the Cavs.

I like the Magic as well. They are playing the best ball and Van Gundy has been pushing the right buttons.

Magic considering Jameer Nelson for Finals

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Orlando is evaluating All-Star point guard Jameer Nelson for a possible return to the Magic lineup for the NBA Finals that begin Thursday night in Los Angeles.

Magic spokesman Joel Glass said on Sunday that Nelson's rehabilitation from a shoulder injury is ahead of schedule but that his status remains uncertain.

Nelson has been out since early February with what had been called a season-ending shoulder tear.

Magic president Bob Vander Weide told The Orlando Sentinel after Saturday's win against Cleveland that he wanted Nelson to take another MRI and consult with doctors for a possible comeback.

Nelson has been working out and has said he has full range of motion. But Magic general manager Otis Smith has repeatedly said there is no way Nelson could return this season.

I want the Magic to win, I voted for them, but really can't see them winning this. They won't be able to win every game at home like they did against the Cavs.

Unfortunately the Lakers in 7, but hopefully I am wrong, fingers crossed.

I don't think the Magic will match up as well against LA as they did against the Cavs. I hope they win it.

BTW- those puppet commercials weren't even funny.

I think the Magic win....Howard is a beast and Tukolu(sp) has been playing the best he has in years (if not ever) Lakers are going to have play bigger than they probaly want to and ther PG play can be suspect at times. will be a good series goes to 7 games
