I had Lakers and Cavs. I think everybody, if not most, had that.

You can't blame people for choosing both teams, as they were the best during the regular season.

I had LA vs. a Healthy Celtics team... but i changed it to the Magic i think at the midway mark. Boston didn't look like they were getting healthy at all.

Congrats to them though

It kept appearing as if the team's age caught up with their play

Im sure I said Boston and LA with LA raping Boston in the Finals. Mostly because I hate LeBron so I know I didn't pick Cleveland, I thought the Magic with Carter got worse so couldn't have been them, Im not a big enough homer to say the Bulls and I knew the Hawks didn't have enough to beat anyone important. I had to have said LA because It was obvious they were the best team in the west, although I was pretty high on San Antonio for most of the year, thought they had the best chance at the Lakers. Absolutely shocked the Suns even made the playoffs. Mavs are always flukey, and Utah couldn't win a playoff series if they had Stockton and Malone still. Im neither a Laker or Celtics fan honestly I just want to watch a great series, I've really enjoyed the playoffs so far, Im gonna pull for Boston just a little bit harder I think.

I had Lakers vs. Magic in a rematch, with LA taking it all. I guess my champ is still alive, but honestly...who knew Boston would get past both Cleveland and Orlando? I know they're a really good team when healthy, but that's just crazy. I certainly don't say this as a knock on the Celtics, but the Cavs and Magic both flopped big time in a very embarassing way, they clearly weren't tough enough to get the job done when it really mattered. It was all hype. That's just the way it goes. Those teams had a good regular season, but that's all, nothing more. The truth is....Orlando, Phoenix, AND Cleveland were all gimmick teams, in one way or another. Not one of them was actual championship material. The two toughest teams made it, and now they'll square off to see who's the best.

I'm still taking the Black Mamba and his boys to win it all. Hey.....if we can't beat em, I don't want anybody to beat em.

I had Lakers vs Boston from start to finish and never waivered.

I still can't understand why the Celtics are constantly disrespected in the media are always picking the Cavs. This is probably one of the greatest Celtics teams of all time and they know when it's time to show up, regular season means nothing, ask LBJ and Superman.

Was predicting a rematch. Boston not even being in the East Finals. Was wrong. Except for THE FACT that the LAKERS WILL REPEAT!

i always had boston and LA in the finals

had LA winning in 5 or 6.. (i know.. wishfull thinking)
but now imo its a toss up because of bynums injury

i see it this way. if LA takes both home games we win in 6
If boston splits the first two games then boston either wins or loses in 7 games

I had the Lakers beating the Cavs before the season. I hope the Lakers win so at least my winner was correct before the year, but I personally think that the Celtics are going to win.

I thought it was going to be a repeat of LA vs. Orlando. I didn't see Boston. I didn't see the Suns making it as far as they did, either.

My pre-season pick was LA vs. Boston because I really liked the additions of 'Sheed and Daniels. Then I saw how fat 'Sheed was and how old the C's looked and I changed my east pick to Orlando.

I must've changed my picks at least a dozen times throughout the season. I tend to get emotional and pick the teams that I know I'd root for. In March I had Denver coming out of the west...

Well, my top two picks from each conference were the Lakers and Spurs in the West and the Cavs and the Celtics in the East, though I thought it would be LA v Cleveland (as many thought).
