Default NBA Finals 2009 Picks

Who do you guys think is going to win the NBA finals this year? Vote and say why you think a certain team will win.

I'm giving 5 options: Lakers, Magic, Cav's, Celtics, and other.

I'll start:

I'm from NE so I think Boston is going to win the finals IMO they are the deepest team in the NBA because of losing KG for such a long time. Losing KG improved the Celtics bench a lot and I think that that is why they will beat Cleveland, but if they don't have KG when they play Cleveland I think Cleveland will beat Boston. If Cleveland gets to finals I think they will be beat by the Lakers because the Lakers have beat them at home and have also gotten better.

I honestly don't understand how some people can be so sure that a certain team in the NBA will win. The NBA is a joke... nobody even tries to play defense. If a team randomly decided to actually play the game, they would stomp everyone.

That being said, I voted for the Cavs because Lebron seems to be more motivated to get his stats up than anyone else.

I think the Blazers are gonna take it all.

I don't really like NBA though, fan of Football (soccer) and Hockey.

I am going with the Celtics. I do not get to watch much Basketball anymore

My second choice would be the Golden State Warriors.

Peter, If you moved to Europe you could watch proper football 24/7 but, no BB or football.

so that's why they won... cuz they broke the unspoken rule in the NBA that you're not supposed to play defense.


it's really quite simple, and i'm 100% confident i could be the best coach in the nba. to win, do the following:
1. make your team play defense, and bench anyone who doesn't
2. $5,000 fine for any missed 3-pointer


you can say that they play defense, but they don't. they simply don't try.
and you ever wonder why nba games immediately became lower scoring the year the 3 point line was introduced?

it's really a joke.

That's why I and many others I know enjoy NCAA over NBA, but I still enjoy watching and supporting my home team.
