I think it's probably gonna be Cleveland and LA in the finals.
Oh, ya think?
The shitty thing about the NBA is you pretty much know. There's the slight chance that you'll get a surprise like the Magic last year but for the most part, it's clear who's going to win every series. I'd say there's about a 90% chance of a Cavs-Lakers finals this year.
I'm from Chicago, IL - 38 years old and was following the Bulls since I was 7. Since Norm Van Lier and Artis Gilmore and Mickey Johnson and Reggie Theus and David Greenwood et al. I remember THE DAY they drafted Michael Jordan 3rd overall in 1984, seeing highlights and thinking to myself 'Hmm...we might be on to something here.' I remember seeing Scottie Pippen and Horace Grant interviewed together the day the Bulls took them 5th and 10th respectively. I watched the Bulls lose to the Pistons three years straight but come a little bit closer each time, until the finally swept their asses out of the playoffs in 1991 and that faggot Isiah led the team off the court before the final buzzer to avoid having to say congrats. I watched the Cavs, Knicks, Heat, Blazers, Suns, Sonics and Jazz put together some amazing teams that woulda coulda shoulda been champs had they just not been put together while the Bulls were impossible to beat. If Mike hadn't "retired" for those two years and if ownership hadn't broken up the team after the lockout the Bulls would have won NINE STRAIGHT TITLES.
That's my team.
Thought I'd spice this thread up a bit. Any Knick fans here want to talk about Charles Smith or Hubert Davis?
