No I like Lebron, just don't crown him yet, you know?

Guys got to prove a little more before he is considered the absolute best, you know?

Ya definately way to much hype, same with Kobe but it looks like at least he will get his first ring being the leader of the team this year.

True but I wasn't watching Basketball much when he first came into the league. My interest in bball started during the lockout season. But by this point Kobe has proven the hype to be true.

Any of the Lakers-Celtics series from the 80's. Magic v Bird... Amazing.

I liked the Miami and Dallas series. Miami coming back from a 2-0 Dallas lead to win the NBA finals was amazing. Wade put up one the best finals performances in NBA history. Averaging over 40 points a game INCREDIBLE.

He averaged 34.7 ppg in the finals. Still incredible nonetheless.

I don't know.. When we're not in the finals, the Spurs are. Dont get me wrong, I like the Spurs, but they are boring.

I'll pick the Mavs Heat series.

The question was favorite finals series, not favorite playoff series. Anyways, anytime it doesn't involve the Lakers its a good series.

You don't watch much sports, if any, do you? That wasn't even a top 50 upset. Malone was injured and so was Fox and Devean. Kobe had a messed up shoulder. The Lakers had no way of winning that series without Malone.

The Lakers were heavy favorites in that series and were favorite in every game. Malone also played game 1 when Detroit took the HCA away and Malone played the first 4 games. He didn't play game 5 as it was pretty much a wrap.

the Pistons eliminated the Pacers in six games and will face the heavily favored Los Angeles Lakers for the championship beginning Sunday.


That series is considered one of the greatest upsets ever in NBA History especially in the finals. No one gave Detroit a chance. A team with no star player and the only person who was even remotely a star was a guy who couldn't even score.
