LeBron vs Kobe would bring higher ratings but I rather see a 2008 finals rematch.

With the way the Celtics are playing, I wouldn't be surprised in seeing them win another one.

Amazing really after their collapse in the regular season.

Unfortunately, the Celtics will be too beat up by the time they reach the Finals. Easiest championship victory ever.

Celtics have the same lineup since 2008 finals.
Lakers have a completely different lineup since 2008 finals.



Gonna be kinda... easy?

yea tru that, from what i saw in game 4 from lakers/jazz they were cold blooded.

Rondo > fisher
Bryant > Allan
Pierce > Artest
Perk > Bynum
Gasol > Garnett


Would be a very interesting one

If Laker bench collapses and Celtics bench plays like they've been playing it could be an awesome series.

Rondo, KG, Perkins defense will be the deciding factor if Boston is going to win.

And Davis needs to have one or two good games.

I'm still not sold on Lakers' big three(Bynum, Odom and Gasol) and their defensive skills. They're really big compared to the Jazz big men but Boston's big men are as big and better defenders.

If the Celtics are perfectly healthy than I think the series would go 7 and game 7 would be a toss up in my mind. Don't seem them being healthy though.....the series against Orlando is going to be too rough and tough for them to come out in good enough shape to challenge the Lakers.

The Lakers have a dream matchup against the Suns. The Lakers will win in 5 or at worst 6 and it will not be a very physical series at all. Kobe will have it very easy and Gasol will have it very easy on offense....guarding amare will be tough.....but just a really good matchup.

Lakers in 7. Would be a classic series. Rondo, going up against Fisher, would probably take over Tobias Funke's mantle as the best analrapist in the country.

wouldn't it be funny if the two teams that disappointed in the regular season (based on expectations) would be the ones that end up playing for the ring.

What happened in the 2008 Finals then? They had Odom and Gasol back then. I don't think Bynum is all that important to be honest, the Lakers' best starting line-up doesn't even include Bynum imo.
