    Call me crazy, Nuggets in 6.

    Just too much firepower for the Lakers. I donít think they have the defenders for it especially with no AB.

    same **** was said about Lillard, McCollum and Harden. All 3 of them are better than Murray. Lakers as a team contained them. Lakers have bigs to cover Jokic. Lakers best defensive team left in the bubble. Nuggets may steal Game 1 and 1 more game but Lakers in 6. Who the **** is gonna stop Lebron??????????????????

    The Clippers-Nuggets series should have taught us that defence isn't played on paper. Lakers have the best team chemistry in the league, and their defence has been on point all postseason. The Lakers are also great at making adjustments, so I'm very confident they will figure out the Nuggets.

    Jokic's defence will get exposed this series. Both in the Utah and Clippers series, Jokic had to guard offensively limited bigs who like to play slow and big. AD is a matchup nightmare for him. Offensively, he is way too agile for the Joker to guard him. Other players, such as Millsap and Craig are just too small. Defensively, again, AD is so quick with his feet, he is long and his strength is underrated. I specifically remember a game in Denver this year, and AD completely shut down Jokic down the stretch. When it comes to Murray, the Lakers will force the ball out of his hands, that's exactly what they did with Lillard and Harden.

    The Nuggets are a great team, but the Lakers match up too well against them. The only thing they have going on for them in this series is that they have no pressure, because no one expected them to be here in the first place. I'm leaning towards the Lakers in 5, but if the Nuggets get hot, and especially the fact that they can play freely, it could go 6.

    We had no AB against dame/McCollum and Westbrook/harden and lakers did just fine. Sounds like you just rather go against Denver than LA

    If the Heat donít win it all I want the Lakers to so good try.

    You mean the team with a failure of a system and a chucker at PG who never has success in the playoffs and a team whoís best player got injured and had 3 of their best role players out for the series as well? Tight. This nuggets team is deeper than both and has an elite Do it all big man which the Lakers havenít seen yet and a young stud on a tear averaging 28 on 50-50-90 splits with 2 50 point games and 2 other 40 point games?

    Failure of a system? They were one hamstring away (Chris Paul) in upsetting the warriors a few years back. Also they were the hottest defensive team in the bubble. No success in playoffs, well Westbrook did reach an nba finals, not many players can say they ever have. Inexperience and going against the heat big 3 prevented them from a championship

    Dame got injured in what, game 4,5? I donít remember. You think if he hadnít gotten hurt they would of beaten the lakers? That series was a wrap. Yes they were missing key players so are we in AB not including losing out on HCA but you donít see us or many of us complaining.

    Lakers made adjustments to slow down dame/McCollum and harden/Westbrook. This will be no different with Murray. Itís not 1 player. Itís a team effort

    Rockets didnt have a player over 6í8 lol it was a failure of a system they went too far with it.

    That was the Westbrook of old, heís shown he doesnít impact winning like that anymore.

    Jazz and Clippers probably thought it was a wrap up 3-1 too didnít they? He got injured game 4 missed game 5 and like I said that doesnít include 3 of their best role players being out.

    Like I said I hope the Lakers win if the Heat donít but yíall are on here talking about a sweep vs the best team theyíve played so far that is on fire and relatively healthy other than missing one of their top bench players/scorers.

    Le-Con forces a couple of extra games; Lakers win this series.

    Hopefully AD can put on a show.

    Clippers were a better match for Lakers. Denver has no chance at all, but I am happy they got to the WCF. Malone my favourite coach for a while now.

    Nuggets have the shooting but donít have anyone beyond Millsap and Grant who even stand a chance keeping up with LeBron on the defensive end.

    People need to stop trying to paint the lakers as the clippers or one of the super teams the nba is used to. Simply isn't the case.

    Its a 20 win team plus two high end superstars

    Clippers are a 50 win team plus 2 of the top 3 mvp candidates from last year.

    Warriors- super team unlike any in history

    Heat
    Celtics



    Its more comparable to the kobe shaq lakers. No one complained about them "teaming up"
