Who do you think's gonna win the NBA finals?

I say Lakers, but then again, I'm biased, as I'm from Anaheim Hills. :)

Lakers. They went through the motions for awhile but turned it up a notch as the season went on.

No Piston love Brady? :P I am a huge Tim Duncan fan and an avid Karl Malone hater, so I must go with anyone other than the Lakers, I did take Sac in the polls though.

I've been a Kings fan since the Kansas City days. There has been a lot of pain in that time! :lol: (I will never forgive Robert Horry........)

I voted the Kings, but boy, Garnett is just Quality. If the Kings don't take it out, I really hope the T-Wolves do.

S.A. are finished for this season. Shame - I would have liked to see them bury the Lakers. :evil:

AZgazer
2004-May-17, 07:33 AM
Yeah, I like Duncan & Parker alot. Oh well. I felt that S.A. could beat either Sac. or Min. but that either of those teams were better than L.A. So it's off to the back up plan for me, go anyone but L.A!! :wink: Malone & Shaq on the same team, what more could you need to root against the Lakers!?!?!

Kind of like the Cowboys, as a Steeler fan I root for 2 teams, the Steelers and anyone playing the Cowboys. :D

Lakers are in good shape to take in again. I can't believe people are saying that SA/Sac/Minn are better than the Lakers. That doesn't make any sense. If these teams were better, they would be winning championships, no?

Since I posted I feel that way, I will defend myself. The Lakers have not yet won the Championship for 04 and until then last years Champ would still be the "Current" Champion and that would be....? The Spurs, not L.A. So yeah, I will say they have been winning Championships, might not have defended this year, but L.A. hasn't won it yet either.......

Now that the Spurs are out... Anyone but the Lakers. Realistically, though I think that it will either be LA or Minnesota. If Sacramento mangages to get past Minnesota, I think the Lakers will be to much for them.

No, they don't. I've been saying that my whole life, and well... still waiting. :P

I do hope that Minnesota makes this a good series, because I really do want to see KG succeed (just not against the Lakers). I would love to see a competitive 7 game series (with LA winning, of course), but I don't think Minnesota can do that with the injuries they have. We'll see what happens tonight. If Minnesota can pull out the win, then I think the series can be stretched to 7. Keep in mind that Kobe might miss most of Game 4 because he will be in court, and the game is starting earlier than usual. This will be Minnesota's opportunity to steal back homecourt. If they lose tonight though, then I don't think they can win games 3 or 4... with or without Kobe. Their confidence seems a bit shaky right now as it is.

...Lose to Detroit in 5. After Reggie got his basket spanked by Tejan Prince, there has been no life in the Pacers at all. :x I would like to see Indiana advance mainly due to Miller not having a ring, but I would be greatly shocked if they win another game.

Sorry, but he's going to go out like my all time favorite Charles, no ring and a trip to the Hall. I watched the infamous Knicks choke and Reggie's performance in the last 30 seconds of that game will go down IMO as one of the all time 5 best individual game performances in Sports History.

Well, what an offensive showcase of a Game 6 that was....... :roll:

134 points combined - winning a playoff game without reaching 70 - winning a game shooting <33% from the field...... :roll: :-&
