Ok no kevin garnett so good bye celtics. Orlando should take care of them in about 5 games or so. it will be cavs vs magic in conference finals i think cavs win in 6 maybe even 7.

I think this is the perfect opportunity for kobe bryant to establish HE IS THE BEST PLAYER not arguably, maybe, or possibly.

I think Lebron is great but since lebron and wade have been in the league BSPN and the media seems to write off kobe bryant.

QUESTION 1: If kobe gets to the finals how will he do against the cavs (over his career he has NEVER shot well against them)

QUESTION 2: my concern here is over kobe's career he never shot well against detroit (2004 finals loss) and he never shot well in his career against the celtics (2008 finals loss) Will this same trend happen against the cavs in the finals FOR A THIRD THIME?

QUESTION 3: If the lakers get there we would have to win at least 2 in clevland can they do it I think they need to win in 6 or less to win the championship

On a side note i hope kobe goes for 50 against lebron

ye realistically speakin..i think lakers and cavs will pull through (which is an incredible matchup to watch...i find boston boring anyways)

BUT..i see a lot of potential upsets..these young teams don't have much to lose for..so they are definitely gonna put up a fight

im still scared about portland in the west

To be honest I am just worried that Lebron will get ALOT of calls in the finals.

If its called fair we win.

Orlando has a decent shot against the cavs as long as they get by the celtics. I would love to see Bynum against Howard when Bynum is playing his best. In fact I think that would be more enjoyable to see than Kobe and Lebron. Kobe and Lebron don't usually guard each other.

What Cavs got is their 3 pt shooters, and basically our weakness is our 3 pt D.. our bigs will dominate their bigs unless Varejao goes on his flopping mode like always..

Turn Lebron and Big Z into jump shooters and you win. It was proven by the Lakers.

Lakers outscored Cavaliers with Points in the paint 104-52 combined in the two games. Made a huge difference and Lakers shot under 50% from the free throw line in one game. Lakers shot just over 63% from the free throw line in both games combined.

Keep the Cavaliers out of the Paint, and you will win.

In every Cavaliers loss except for 1, they were outscored in the paint.
