No arguments about the All-Star game, that's a given.
My problem is that you have already written off the Spurs, Mavericks, and the reigning champion Lakers. My favorite team to win it all this year is..... wait for it.....
The Dallas Mavericks
Let's take a look at their season so far. Their record stands at 40-16, only two losses away from having the same record as the best team in the East, Boston. The same Celtic team that they beat twice so far this season.
The Mavericks also beat the East's second best team twice too. That's right, they beat the Miami Heat twice as well.
Let's look at conference strength. Every team in the Western conference is above .500... In fact you have to go to the #11 team in the conference to find a losing record. So in the West, 10 out of the 15 teams have at least a .500 record.
In the Eastern Conference, only the top 6 teams have above a .500 record...
How does a team become ready for the playoffs? By playing good caliber teams. The West has more good teams than the East does, and one of the West's premier teams has already beat the two teams from the East that most claim will win the Title... twice.

So you list Danny Granger who's team is a whopping 24-30? Yeah I can guarantee that the Pacers will not make any noise if they even make the playoffs.
Congratulations, you just listed a bunch of good players from the Eastern Conference? What does this have to do with winning the NBA Championship again? Or are you still stuck on the All-Star Game?
Anyways, Mavs will win the NBA Championship.
