Cavs vs. Lakers is the most exciting match-up IMO

I can certainly understand people wanting to see the top players in the league go at it like I wanted to see in 1996 and/or 1997 with MJ and Hakeem or 1998 with MJ and Shaq.
However as time passed I became more of the type who would like to see teams who haven't done anything in quite a while make the finals. That is why I enjoyed the 2006 Finals between Miami and Dallas (two teams that had never made the finals go at it)

Lakers will always be a successfull franchise it appears and they were in the finals last year as well. Cleveland will have a lot of success if Lebron stays as well. Plus they were in the finals in 2007.


Of the 4 teams, either of the above will do in the finals as all teams have superstar players and someone's legacy and team bragging rights will enhance.
However, for me I would like to see Orlando in the finals in the East as they haven't gotten to the conference finals since 1996.

In the west I would like to see Denver in the Finals as well as they have NEVER made it to the finals before.


Also another reason why I would like to see Denver and Orlando is neither of them were even in the consideration for winning the title this year even half way thru the year.


Neither Denver or Orlando may end up in the finals of those 2, but to me it would be good for other teams in the league to see new teams make it to the finals in order to know they have a chance as well.

I wanna see the Nuggets and Magic with the Nuggets winning, since I hate them the least.

I wanna see the same matchup, simply because the rest of the League would be pretty pissed not to get LA/CAVS.
And Orlando/Denver is as good as LA/CAVS IMHO...

those ratings would blow so bad for Den/Orl.

From a ratings and media standpoint: L.A. vs. CLE

Since I'm going for the nuggets: nuggets vs. cle.

I said Magic/Nuggets because my Magic would have home court advantage.

I'd really by happy with any of the 4 possibilities. Even as much as I love the Magic, who wouldn't want to see LeBron/Kobe???

Cavs vs Lakers

But I really like how the Magic are a TEAM and they all share and work extremely well together. They are always fun to watch.

I don't mind who wins as long as they earn it and aren't bailed out because their name is Lebron. Seriously...

i would like to see either bron take on melo...or melo take on dwight...

and i think thats will happen...i predict the nuggs take the lakers in 6...people don't realize that game 1 for the lakers was pretty much a must win...not the case for the nuggetts, i'd be surprised if the nuggetts lose at home, they have a big home court advantage over the lakers, as seen in game 1

This is Melo's break out year. Both teams are on the rise why not a preview of future championship matches..... oh wait Lebron will be around for years to come nevermind.

Honestly people say Nuggets vs Magic would be boring but I don't think so. Spurs vs Detroit wasn't boring in 2005. As long as the teams that are in the finals are good, then the finals will always be good.

Super.

In the west i'd like to see L.A., In the east though i kind of want Orlando to make the finals so Patrick Ewing can have a shot at finally getting a ring.

I'd like to see Carmello and LeBron go head-to-head. They are too different types of players with advantages and disadvantages. LeBron is a better, stronger post player, but Carmello is a better shooter.

I think the most exciting would be Nuggets/Magic.
Second Magic Lakers.
Outside of LBJ, I just don't care about the Cavs.

Cleveland and Lakers for me. Denver and Magic would definitely be a fun series to watch. Both have explosive offenses and can shoot the 3 really well.

I am really hoping it is going to be Lakers vs Magic... I'll be fun to watch and a good bet with my friend since he is a Laker fan...

Ill take Magic/Nuggets- And dont care who wins. Carmelo and Howard are my fav non bulls players, so it wouldnt matter to me either way. Plus I hate the Lakers and the Cavs

It would be fun... The Nuggets will have trouble with Dwight though... But I think Chauncey will give the Magic a hard time as always...
