    East : Cavs
    1. LeBron
    2. Defense
    3. Orlando's inconsistency on offense
    4. Dwight not being the dominant game changing offensive post player
    5. Stern sucks LeBron's d**k, and so will the refs.

    West : Nuggets
    1. LA's size is matching up with tough, mobile size in Nene, the Birdman, and Kenyon
    2. Nuggets are playing tough, consistent defense
    3. Nuggets run better that LA
    4. Chancey will outplay Fish easily, making the point of attack much more dangerous
    5. I think home court for the Nuggets counts for more. Altitude, louder crowds, will play a factor in making sure they won't lost on their home floor. Yes, LA has HCA, but I believe the nuggets can steal one and defend in their gym.

    West: Lakers

    1.Denver's lack of strength in the frontcourt to Lakers frontcourt

    LOL, I think that's enough reason for them to win too. So true. Anyway:

    ECF: Cavs
    1) Stern sucks LeBron's d**k, and so will the refs.
    2) HCA
    3) HCA
    4) Magic get lazy when they are ahead
    5) LeBron's magic dust (chalk) ritual

    WCF: Lakers
    1) Bynum + Pau will destroy the Nuggets in the paint
    2) Who will guard Kobe?
    3) HCA
    4) Nuggets haven't been tested yet IMO and are coming off a long break
    5) Ariza will frustrate Melo with his defense

    WCF Champ = Lakers

    1) Kobe-no one on Denver can slow him down
    2) Laker bigs will control boards and therefore tempo
    3) HCA
    4) No pesky PG to penetrate and breakdown D **all respect to Billups but LA can contain him better than Brooks
    5) K-Mart is a chump and a loser

    ECF champs = the Lebrons

    1) Lebron
    2) Lebron can now hit the 3 ball
    3) Great D
    4) Awesome team chemistry
    5) Nearly unbeatable at home

    You know, I laughed when I saw that, but then I thought about it, and pretty much, this is what it boils down to. LeBron and Kobe and Pau are just too much for opposing teams to handle.

    EAST: Magic
    5. The best road team in these playoffs so far, i am confident they can take 1 at Cleveland
    4. 3's, They spread the floor incredibly well and its the Cavs achilies heal imo
    3. Underrated defenders in Pietrus, lee, and dare i say JJ Reddick
    2. Dwight Howard wont let lebron get so many easy dunks/layups as he does with every other team in the league.
    1. There the underdog and have nothing to lose Cleveland has everything to lose as they are expected to win it all. Cavs have yet to be challenged and this will be a very nasty wake-up call.

    WEST: Nuggets
    5. They are tougher
    4. They are hungryer
    3. Better defensivly
    2. Played every game with much more intensity than the Lakers
    1. Mr. Big Shot will come up big

    I am really hoping for LebRon to tear an ACL. I don't know how Rose and other players who are athletic jumping all over the place get injured but this orangutang stays healthy forever.
    Quote from back in March referring to HEATs win streak... Karma is looking like a real thing now huh Laker fans? [CENTER]

    its all the same, it will always break down like this.....do u think the nba will profit more if dwight wins a title or lebron?--obviously stern wouldnt even give dwight a chance...and do u think denver would draw an audience that wants to see the lakers on a mission bc they lost last yr...

    its all stern, and its all $$$$..the nba is fake, fake fake...
