Under the Celtics-Cavs quota now, everyone made their predictions. Let's take a look at the most ridiculous ones:

Henry Abbott: Cavs in 4
John Hollinger: Cavs in 5
Chris Sheridan: Cavs in 5

Not to mention, NOBODY predicted the Celtics to win.

What I find so hard to believe is how would the Celtics not pull even one game out, if the lowly Chicago Bulls were able to? ESPECIALLY with the Celtics looking like the Celtics of old? Secondly, why wouldn't the Celtics to be able to win at least one MORE than the Bulls?

Thirdly, to have not one analyst predict the Celtics to win is ridiculous. Ridiculous.

ESPN has been pushing Lakers vs. Cavaliers all year. It's clear that website wants it.

Before the playoffs, just about every analyst in the country would have picked Cleveland over Boston in 4-5. Some would have had -- hell, DID HAVE -- the Heat taking out Boston last round.

Boston looked great against Miami. Still, one series against the lowly Heat probably isn't enough to change impressions formed over an 82-game season.

If KG plays well, then I see them having at a frontcourt advantage. KG and Perkins can definitely handle Jamison, Varejao, and Shaq well. The key would be Pierce v. Lebron. If Pierce could hold his own, then the huge matchup advantage of Rondo's speed and PG skills v. Mo can carry the Celtics to a possible upset.

Too many ifs. And those ifs are big ifs too. Cleveland has no ifs. Their only if is whether or not Mo and Delonte hit their shots. That's a smaller if now than it was last year with Jamison, Shaq and a little bit deeper of a bench.

They aren't losing to Boston. Orlando is still by far their toughest opponent in the East, perhaps in the NBA.

I actually think it will be a better series than most expect.
Rondo should match well with Mo. Perkins is one of the best at defending the stronger centers. Case and point with him guarding Howard in the past. So it will be interesting how he defends Shaq. I think he'll give Shaq problems.
I think Celtics match up well. I also like to add that Jamison is going to have to step up if Cavs are to win. He's the x-factor imo.

We really didnt have trouble. They won 1 game LOL. We didnt have too much trouble.

Did the Bulls play tough in every game (except game 4)? Yes

They play more to our style but are slower. They dont have anyone who can stop LB from doing anything and Shaq is gonna be a better force in the paint because all of there big men are slow. I think each game will be tough as well but they are not going to win. Yall will see.

If KG plays well, then I see them having at a frontcourt advantage. KG and Perkins can definitely handle Jamison, Varejao, and Shaq well. The key would be Pierce v. Lebron. If Pierce could hold his own, then the huge matchup advantage of Rondo's speed and PG skills v. Mo can carry the Celtics to a possible upset.

I don't see the frontcourt advantage at all. With Varejao's movement, Shaq's size, and Jamison's ability to score from in and out, that's a hell of a defensive assignment for KG, Perkins, and Baby.

The series rests with Rondo and Allen. Rondo can tear up Mo on a good night. And Ray-Ray, like always, will be dropping 3s all over Cleveland.

Boston's definitely got a decent chance, but the matchups are what they are.

Cavs play the Celtics better without Shaq. Basically having Shaq play will make this be a long series. If Shaq wasn't playing I think the Cavs take it, but I think he hurts them against the C's for some reason.

I don't really want to see either. Tired of both of them to be honest but especially tired of Lebron and Kobe. I'd rather see some new talent in the finals.

I am so sick of the hatred towards Lebron. The guys is flat out the best all around player in the NBA and you guys nit pick every little tiny flaw you can like a bunch of high school biznatches. Leave the man be. As for the Celts and the Cavs its obvious why the Cavs will win. The bulls made the series competitive because Derrick Rose can shoot well in that mid range game and no one in the league can stay in front of him. Now I do think the Celts will sneak a game maybe 2 out but the Cavs are too good.

I think the cavs will win the series versus boston but it wont be as easy as some people may think. I see it as a Cavs win in 6 at best....as for the potential matchup with Orlando...i see orlando taking it again for a rematch of last years finals....as much as i'd like to see a Kobe/LeBJ finals...it aint gonna happen

Well at least i'm basing my statement off evidence.

The cavs never won 1 game in the finals, how's that for evidence kid. :rolleyes:

come on now....how is the number one team in the western conference two years running and the defending NBA champions overrated....i find that hard to believe....now there's a team in the eastern conference that has done well the last two regular season but has yet to produce in the post season....as far as i'm concerned u can call them overrated...
