We haven't won against Cleveland in years. :unsure:
I hope it changes this season. :)

Cavs probably match up better with us, but Boston will be the biggest threat. For some reason, I don't think the Cavs are for real and haven't for some time. We shall see...

I prefere match the Cavs in the Finals than the Celtics, no question. Cavs aren't ready yet, no experience.

ill take the celts in the finals to get revenge.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

I think I would take the Celtics vs. Lakers match up ANY DAY. Tickers online went as high as 10,000 for the lakers Vs. Celtics Christmas game, imagine how much you can scalp your tickets for the Finals match up for. Scalping tickets IS NOT illegal in California. I don't think a Cavaliers Vs. Lakers final isn't as appealing as an old rivalry renewed is. Proof scalping tix in california is Legal California:

€ Allows tickets purchased for resale to be sold but prohibits reselling on the grounds of an event except with permission (Cal. Penal Code § 346)

Aside from what I fear will be more of the same favored officiating for Lebron, I don't think we have anybody who can matchup with his power and speed. LO is our best bet but he's not strong enough. Pau's too slow on the perimeter. Josh Powell might be a good matchup but he's wet behind the ear and he's not going to get respect from the refs. Kobe might be effective for end game scenarios but even he gets burned by LeBronze.

Bottom line is, we will need a team effort, and we'll have to hope the shooters are cold.

Time to re-evaluate considering Marbury may be a Celtic soon.

^ how can u not take them serious, Dwight Howard is Patrick ewing-like, a little more intimidating with his HOPS, and he has shooters, no snipers around him, not to mention jameer and pietrus, thats a deadly combo

I don't fear Orlando at all. Bynum thrives against centers his size. He has the most trouble against shooting centers like Okur.

Orlando isn't a very complicated team to defeat. Dwight's offense is stoppable, just as everyone else on the team is.
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

I don't know. Boston is definitely not the same team it was last season because of a weakened bench. The Cavs have definitely been on a roll but I've noticed that they have not performed all that well against playoff bound teams.

I wanna say cleveland because Lebrick can dominate just like Kobe... and his surroundings are not too bad, i still think we win in 6
Lebron may be as good as Jordan, but he will NEVER be as good as Kobe!!
