SEMIFINALS

LA Lakers vs. Dallas
Winner: Vote here!

--------------------------------------
From now on, each poll will have a voting time of 7 days. This applies to each matchup until an NBA Champion has been determined.

--------------------------------------------------------------

FIRST ROUND

LA Lakers vs. Phoenix
Winner: LA Lakers, 4-0 (http://www.prosportsdaily.com/forums/showthread.php?t=398263)

Dallas vs. Portland
Winner: Dallas, 4-2 (http://www.prosportsdaily.com/forums/showthread.php?t=398267)





Denver vs Utah
Winner: Denver, 4-2 (http://www.prosportsdaily.com/forums/showthread.php?t=398264)

San Antonio vs New Orleans
Winner: San Antonio, 4-1 (http://www.prosportsdaily.com/forums/showthread.php?t=398266)


The total of votes for each team will be counted (all 4 options together) and the team with the higher total wins. Eventually, the result will be the option with the most votes (out of 4 options) of the team that has the most votes altogether.


Example:

If the option which has been voted most out of all 8 in the poll is "Memphis in 6" (20 votes), it doesn't necessarily mean that Memphis has won. If Memphis has 50 votes (Memphis in 4, 5, 6 & 7 altogether), but New Orleans has 55 votes (New Orleans in 4, 5, 6 & 7 altogether), New Orleans is the winner, although it didn't have the most votes in any of its 4 single options. The option with the most votes of the winner (New Orleans) is the final result.

Let's say:
Memphis in 4 = 10 votes
Memphis in 5 = 5 votes
Memphis in 6 = 20 votes
Memphis in 7 = 15 votes
Total = 50 votes

Now lets say New Orleans has
New Orleans in 4 = 12
New Orleans in 5 = 13
New Orleans in 6 = 17
New Orleans in 7 = 13
Total = 55 votes
The winner would be New Orleans in 6 since they would have the most votes total overall and thus the option for them that was voted the most is New Orleans in 6 would become the final result.

Gasol<Dirk(Gasol will give him fits but Dirk is Dirk and will find a way to score)
Artest=Marion(I mean they aren't as good on offense and are amazing on defense. Marion will probably guard Kobe and Artest guarding Howard. I call them even)
Kobe>Howard(Kobe. Enough said)

Gasol has actually consistently owned Dirk in their matchups. Dirk has a hard time dealing with Gasol in the post and Gasol has the length and quickness defensively to keep up with Dirk on the perimeter.

Now that I look at it, you are right.

But we probably gotta give the point to Dirk because he is the better player.

Who guards Dirk? Bynum? I know Odom does when he comes off the bench, but to start the game it was Pau last year.

I think people are giving the mavs not enough credit. People talk about frontcourt being the main issue Who knows with all the injuries how bynum performs. Dirk will score on Pau and put up 20 points. And they have marion if they need more post defense help

BlondeBomber41
08-20-2009, 07:44 PM
Yeah the last reason the Mavs are gonna lose to the Lakers is because of the frontcourt. They have a MVP PF and Gooden/Dampier can combine to at least produce what Bynum gives.

I am way more worried about Kobe Bryant than anyone on the frontcourt.

Bruno
08-20-2009, 08:15 PM
Lakers in 5. The Mavs have gotten a lot better but they have never been able to stop Kobe. Lamar and Pau do a good job on Dirk, and Artest is too physical for Howard and Marion. The Mavs take a game at home because Jason Terry and Dirk will go off at least once.

Umm no he hasnt Dirk has played very well against the lakers in the recent past and pau has struggled to stay with him.

Also ill take a Dallas team in six due too an arrogance and since of entitlement ive seen from LA. They would lose for the same reason they almost blew it to a Yao/ Mcgrady less houston team there over confident. And an added blow is now there not as hungry.

Who knows maybe Dirk suffered a catastrophic injury? Who knows maybe Kobe got ejected in the crucial game of the series? Who knows maybe Artest started *****ing out and shot airballs from 60 feet? Who knows if the Mavs even made the playoffs at all??

If the Mavs are going to win this series, it'd have to be a "quick" series of 5 or 6 games.


The longer it goes on, the easier it will be for the Lakers to come back. So, IF the Lakers don't go and win 4-1 (most probably) and the Mavs get a few early wins, the only way they'll beat the lakers is 4-1 or 4-2. The longer the series goes on, the higher the probability of the Lakers winning.

Umm no he hasnt Dirk has played very well against the lakers in the recent past and pau has struggled to stay with him.

No. Dirk averaged 18 PPG on 34% shooting against the Lakers. He also averaged 8 RPG.

Pau averaged 20 PPG on 68% shooting against the Mavs. He also averaged 9 RPG.


Also ill take a Dallas team in six due too an arrogance and since of entitlement ive seen from LA.

What arrogance and sense of entitlement you have seen from LA? They haven't played a single game since the NBA Finals. How would you know whether or not they are arrogant? If the season already started and they took a few games off, then your argument is legitimate. At this point, it is pure speculation and fallacy.


They would lose for the same reason they almost blew it to a Yao/ Mcgrady less houston team there over confident.

Not really.

1. Yao played in 3 of the games.
2. McGrady wasn't there...So what? Up until the Lakers struggled against the Rockets, everybody was saying that McGrady not being there was a blessing for that team. Of course, once the Lakers started to struggle, everybody started saying the Rockets could use him. :rolleyes: McGrady hurt that team earlier on in the year and they started to blossom when he got injured. Fact.
3. The Lakers problem wasn't overconfidence. Their problem was a speedy PG in Brooks who Fisher couldn't stop and the tough muscle inside in Hayes and Landry. Not to mention outside shooting in Battier, Brooks, etc. The Mavs have none of this really.

BTW--Although the Rockets series was a slight misstep, they dominated the WCF and NBA Finals as they found their groove as a championship squad. When the Celtics went to two straight 7 game series against sub-par competition and nearly losing the Game 7 (remember, the Lakers dominated their Game 7), people forgot all about that and called the Celtics an all-time great team. The fact is that the Celtics found their groove in the ECF and the Lakers found their groove in the WCF.


And an added blow is now there not as hungry.

PURE speculation...That is all that statement happens to be. PURE speculation. In fact, I would argue differently. With an added piece in Artest extremely hungry for a title and this year being the last year in Phil's contract, the Lakers can possibly be even MORE motivated because they a) want to get Artest that championship taste, b) want to send Phil off as a winner, and c) they would want to accomplish a great feat in a back to back title runs.

NO ORLANDO IS!
The reason's they made it to the finals
1.KG was injured
2.Turkoglu's lights out shooting(eliminating cleveland)
3.The East is NO WAY NEAR CLOSE 2 be being more competitive 2 the west!
(ex. if 4th seed atlanta was in the WC they wouldnt have made the playoffs)

Funny..Lakers in 4, 5 maximum. They literally can NEVER guard Kobe. He averaged over 30 a game against them last year, I mean you can argue that Dallas got better with Marion, but in the same respect, barring another freak accident Bynum will be around this year too. Don't say he's injury prone, because the times he has gotten hurt have been weird accidents. Almost comparable to the Tom Brady play...

like I said, if Dallas picks up Kaman or Camby it's game over for the Lakers
