With roughly a month left in the NBA season, we see a clear picture painted between the contenders and the pretenders. As with any NBA season, there is really only 4-6 contenders that have a real shot at the title.
From the West we have the San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Lakers. The Mavericks would be included but does anybody really expect anything out of Dirk Nowitzki and his motley crew? I certainly dont.
From the East its a little more interesting then it has been. We have the Boston Celtics, the Chicago Bulls, the Orlando Magic, and of course, the Miami Heat.
Simple predictions: Using the current standings, the Heat defeat the New York Knicks, then the Bulls, and then Celtics. Yes, im jumping back on the Heat bandwagon. I really feel like theyve turned it around for the better. Everyone seems to have a better understand of how start and finish a game (looking at you LeButthead). From the West i have Spurs meeting up with the Lakers in the Western Conference finals and beating them in, we'll say, 6 games. The Spurs are a good team, but Lord Kobe shall not be denied his chance at his 6th title.
That leads us to easily the most anticipated championship series in the history of professional sports. Your Miami Heat vs. The evil Los Angeles Lakers. Who do you think wins this? Heat in 5, lock it up?
Anybody else agree with me? Any other predictions? I'd love to hear what you guys have to say.
