Even though the better conference is easily the west, either the Celtics or the Cavs will win it all.


I like the Lakers to win it all.

Things are going very good in year 2 with Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum is still developing and is showing signs he can be a great player.

Boston does not have a deep bench, and their poor 3 pt shooting from the bench may come back to haunt them.

San Antonio and New Orleans are also candidates to make the finals.

Los Angeles has depth over Boston even more this time and will have Andrew Bynum and Gasol will be allowed to play in his natural postion, which is PF.

Everyone talks about how Cleveland has expiring contracts, but Odom's is up too I believe.

I dont think LA will trade Lamar, but they can go that way if they want.

LA beats Boston barely, and beats Cleveland by a bigger margin.


I beleive that with the West the way it is, and the how the Lakers have to battle every game, i think that one of the 3, either Bynum, Gasol, or Kobe will get hurt. Even if none of them do, with the Lsker's schedule being so tough, by april, they will be fatigued.

The Celtics, on the other hand, have a much lighter schedule. They really don't need to have their stars play every game, and by the end of the regular season, they should have th number 1 seed wrapped up so Garnett, Pierce, Allen, and Rondo can rest up for te playoffs.


Wrapped up?

Yeah right. Cleveland and Orlando will lbe fighting with Boston for the 1 seed until the very end.

LA, on the other hand, has a 5 game lead in the Conference Standings and is the only team in the West with Single digit loses.

The West may be deeper overall, but the east is stronger at the top. Boston will beat itself up just as much as LA will.

LA will be able to rest players more and not worry about losing the one seed in the West, while Boston isnt even currently is sole possesion of first in the East.

Saying Gasol, Bryant, or Bynum WILL get hurt is retarted. To predict a player will get hurt is almost as stupid as taking Porkins to a restaurant that isnt buffett style.

And believe me, that is pretty dran stupid.


"The West may be deeper overall, but the east is stronger at the top."

If they are stronger at the top, that would mean the East has the best team, and that usually means that they would win.
