The Lakers won both regular-season meetings, a positive indicator in their favor, but the Cavs will get the last two games on their home court, where they were 39-1 in games they tried to win. Yes, the Lakers were responsible for the "1", but that doesn't mean they're going to romp through the Q this time around.

Again, the Cavs' ability to play LeBron the whole game makes them a much more imposing team in the playoffs than they are in the regular season, as Boston found out a year ago, when a Cleveland team that gave up more points than it scored in the regular season took the mighty Celtics to the wire in a seventh game before succumbing.

This year, it's time to crown King James. I expect the Lakers to make this not just a competitive series, but a downright classic one. But in the end, the combination of the crowd at the Q and the best player in the world will be too much for the Lakers.

My prediction: Cavs in 7
Kobe's official reign of terror is about to get its jump off on.

Yes, because Kobe Bryant cannot be played the whole game but Lebron can

Hollinger also has to do a write-up that backs up his computer rankings (after-all, it's been right the last 2 years).

The Lakers are the better team, and Lebron's teammates also must play more minutes.

There are many mis-matches for the Lakers to exploit, and the only true mismatch the Cavs have in their favor is at the PG position.

No excuse really for Phil to get outwitted by Mike Brown.
