Re: Predict which team will eliminate the Lakers from the 2013 playoffs
I can see three teams doing it, but I only have an idea how two of them will play this year because of the huge trade OKC made.
Miami - defending champs, only team that can match up talent for talent
Celtics - the Celtics should have great defense, and have a ton of depth at every position. This is the "dark horse" because I can't see them playing the Lakers...
OKC - depending on how they mesh of course. This pick could change in a couple of months if the Thunder are garbage, but if they play as well as last year then they definately have a good chance.
Team I expect will eliminate the Lakers at this point is Miami, but OKC could change my mind if they play well.
