Other than a Lebron vs Kobe matchup, what matchup would be good to see in the finals this year?


Here were a few I thought of:

Celtics vs Blazers (Pierce vs Roy)

Magic vs Rockets (Dwight vs Yao)

Hawks vs Nuggets (Melo vs Joe Johnson)

Bulls vs Jazz (Rose vs Deron):D

Rockets vs Magic would be a fun series.
As would Portland and Atlanta IMO, Roy vs Joe J

76ers vs. Lakers (Kobe vs. Iggy)

Classic matchup, and it looks like Iggy is starting to emerge as the true leader of the Sixers. Not to mention Iggy hitting that 3 in LA a couple months ago to beat the Lakers.

I also wouldn't mind seeing the Hawks play anybody in the Finals....the more games in the highlight factory, the better.

As long as the Spurs and/or the Pistons don't make it to the Finals...I'll watch it.

well if KG and ginobli were both healthy id say Celtics-spurs

You would have two very quick pgs going at it.

Parker-Rondo
ginobli-Allen
Bowen-Pierce
TD-KG
Oberto?-perkins

Before all the injuries I was really pulling for a Celtics/Spurs finals.

I've always enjoyed Duncan and Garnett going head to head. It's usually an intense battle.

Also, I think both teams (when healthy) compare well to each other.

Both have quick PGs, great wing players, and hall of fame PF's.

That Spurs vs Celtics would have been classic as well. Spurs Big 3 vs Celtics Big 3. KG vs Duncan

Imagine that matchup in 2004. Wow. That would have been an amazing WCF. Both players in their primes squaring off. That surely would have changed our thinking if KG would have pulled out the series win.

Actually in 2004 I either wanted a Lakers vs Kings series or a Spurs vs Twolves and neither of them happened.
