Which team would win if they met in the finals in 2008-2009 with the current roster?

If lakers are fully healthy, they would take it with no problem!

Lakers...add in Bynum and give the young guys a year to mature for the Lakers...take out Posey and give Bostons old guys a year to slow down. It would definitely be a good series.

Why would you make ANOTHER thread about this same topic? Just to make it?

Free agency isn't done. Trading isn't done. So there is no way or reason to predict this.

Since we don't know how the Bynum and Gasol combo will work, I'd take the Celtics at this point.

Boston because we dont know how Gasol and Bynum will work.

Lakers assuming they stay healthy and Bynum and Gasol play well together.

I think we should wait until after the offseason until we answer this question.. But with the current rosters, and Lakers being fully healthy.. I think the Lakers would do much better

I have to say boston just because now they have a year under their belt and will be much better

the celtics man handled the lakers in the finals. unless bynum comes in like an absolute superstar and even then, the celtics would win again.

Will be much better? They just lost Posey, and their big 3 is aging as well.

This thread is pointless, but if the Gasol + Bynum combo works out, I'd look at them as the possible favorites.

Lakers- addition of Bynum as well as a healthy Kobe, Ariza, and Fisher.
Celtics- losses of Brown and Posey

I give the edge to the Lakers.

EVERYONE STOP WITH THIS BIG 3 AGING THING......when NBASTARTS UP IN OCT/NOV IT WILL BE WHAT 5 MONTHS SINCE THE NBA FINALS...... AGE IS LAKERS ONE EXCUSE TO USE AS TO WHY CELTICS WOULD LOSE....ALLEN, PIERCE AND, KG will play Better OR Same as they did in 08 in 09..Bynum is good but if they meet in the finals NOTHING WOULD CHANGE except Boston would have 18 banners.. END IT L.A YOUR NOT GOOD

Lakers would win if fully healthy. They have Bynum back and with the loss of Posey, it could be big for the Celtics.

Considering the next season has not started and the Lakers were never in that series....a lot

with all the **** talkin boston bein doin over the offseason has surely got 2 the lakers so kobe will take it personal and bet the celtics like the lil boys they are boston is a very good team but posey was the key man off the bench. if you watch the finals are starter had lakers up by 18 points or so every game excludin game six and bostons bench destroyed us wid posey house,brown,and powe bet the lakers. without posey d inside and his leadership boston goin have a hard time defendin lakers bigs. there goin miss posey energy and his ability 2 hit big shot dumb mistake by not signing your best bench good job ainge lol

Ray Allen was the guy who mainly defended Kobe in that series. Pierce did so at certain times and Posey did so once Pierce went out the game.

IMO Celtics would still win. Bynum would make it closer, but Boston would still beat them.

I know all the lakers fans are in love with bynum and i will admit he is a good young player...BUT...unless they deceide to play D I cant see them winning. Bynum isnt a KG type player that will change your whole team and Posey was big but he wasnt the key for our team defense so I will say the Celtics but it will be closer.

This is a funny thread cause Boston fans will choose boston and Laker fans will choose lakers. I'm only paying attention to "other favorite team" Fans. oh, and i choose Lala land:)

Ppl only pay attention to Bynum, Ariza was our defense at the SF spot and we didnt have him, his defense isn't as good as Posey's but its still good, he can slash and he's probably better than Posey at reading the passing lanes. Bynum isn't the only one who would have helped us.

Lakers...Posey was the only player in the Celtics bench that could come in and knock down shots, Eddie House was nothing compared to what Posey could bring to the game in the long run there gonna wish they had James Posey.

Without Posey LA would win, trust me. As an avid fan, I watched how that MOFO killed us, especially in game 4. The best Celtic line up included Posey. Without Posey, and with Bynum back, LA's chances got a whole lot better.

I'm sorry, but age is a factor. Allen already showed signs of alowing down and he is turning 34 or 35. KG is turning 34. Pierce is hitting 32. They are not going to be as good as last year and definately not better. I understand as a Boston fan you want this to last all your life, but this big three is only going to be around for one more year because Ray Allen is a free agent next summer. Anyways I fnd this thread pointless because I don't see the Celtics making the Finals, but it would be cool to see a rematch.

BTW I love rage and bias. It makes for a good mix. I admit the Celtics are good even as a Lakers fan. If you think the Lakers are not good then you are kidding yourself and just hate on everything. I have my rivals in sports as well, but I still keep my arguments rational so I don't sound so ignorant and bitter.

Plus, Kobe and Fisher were playing injured so if they were healthy then that makes a difference as well.
