NOW THAT THE SEASON IS OVER WE NEED TO GET DOWN TO BUSINESS END OF THE SEASON AND WHO WILL BE CROWNED THE BEST.

EVERYONE AND THEIR MOMMA SEEMS TO THINK MIAMI WILL WIN IT ALL AGAIN BUT NO ONE SEEMS TO DECIDE WITH ANY CONFIDENCE WHO THEY'LL FACE IN THE FINALS.
ME PERSONALLY I THINK CLIPPERS WILL, EVEN THOUGH THEY'VE GOT SOME INTERNAL ISSUES GOING ON. MEMPHIS SERIES WITH CLIPS IS ONE TO WATCH IN THE WEST THE REST SEEM LIKE ITS PREDICTABLE. SPURS NEED THEIR MAIN BOYS BACK OR THEY'LL BE OUT 1ST ROUND AGAIN THOUGH I FEEL.

IN THE EAST ONLY ONE WORTH WATCHING IS THE NY / CELTICS SERIES WHICH WILL HAVE FIREWORKS. NY FOR SOME REASON KEEP TALKING ABOUT MEETING MIAMI IN THE EAST FINALS BUT DOC RIVERS IS NO JOKE AND IF THEY'RE NOT CAREFUL THIS COULD BE AN EARLY ROUND LOSS SO HOPE THEY'RE NOT GETTING TOO COSY.

YOUR THOUGHTS ...

FINALS PICK : MIAMI V LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS

Been backing Miami for the championship everytime ive had a win for many months now..I see no team beating a fully fit heat team over the best of 7games..Out of the West i fancy the Spurs, surely there last chance at a Championship in the Duncan era.

i'd be fairly confident Westbrook and Durant can put up 60 between them tbh

even without Harden, they are the 3rd highest scoring team in NBA

If The Knicks could get some momentum going by giving Boston a good hiding, I think they could win it.

Miami are so strong though.

I don't, but if you want to put your confidence in a team to hold the fort at home then one with a 38-3 record is a pretty good choice

At the prices, I would rather back Nuggets @ 28 then OKC @ 5.8 if I was choosing from that conference
By:

When: 18 Apr 13 23:41
Gallinari is out and Lawson isn't fully fit. Without these two at the top of their game, the Nuggets have no chance. Absolutely none. If you back the Nuggets at @28, you are throwing money away. OKC will reach the finals.

If Miami get out the east, then they'll win it. West is more stacked but there's a few teams in the east that can match Miami over 7 games provided things go very well. Knicks (If Melo plays like the MVP we know he is, and Smith + one other give support off the bench), Bulls (If Rose comes back, and I think he will). Pacers would have with Granger but no chance without. Celtics would with Rondo as well. Only 5 teams can win it all - Heat, Knicks, OKC and Spurs. Take your pick.

MIAMI CAN LOSE TO INDIANA FOR EXAMPLE OR NYK OR CHICAGO IF D ROSE WHO IS IN FULL TRAINING FOR WEEKS NOW WILL COME BACK. thiose teams have solid matches against miami in regular.
overall miami had their run and the won lot of matches but since last year many teams on the east improved vastly so all the playoffs would be very interesting and more even than 2012

difficult to see them losing finals but wouldnt rule it out as well. i think san antonio  would have huge chance if they are fit but if they get there it means they playing their best and they have huge experience, remember dallas. also clippers is a huge team, the struglling with inured paul but if he will play his best they are real danger to anybody, huge experience within team and wide bench . but yes, memphis big step for them first.
okc looks like struggling in this match up thou but year past in young team they can play better, martin is great shooter and overall very effective player good defender, he gives 14 points every match (about 3 rd player to preform)


overall as we know playoffs r different cookie to regular season and often teams who are playing very well there  cant bring it into  post season. as i said lot of teams improved to last year and it will be seen when it counts. it wont be cake walk for sure to anybody ,we already saw miami chicago match for example as a taster . it wont be as easy as last year

Anybody else think the Celtics are a bit big for this game? They have a lot of big, experienced players. Garnett should be available. I'm not sure that they will win the game, but I think they may trade lower than the current 4.2/4.3.

I'm gonna back the Celtics with a view to trading out. I like The Knicks, but I don't like this price.

games this season (home team first)

New York 108-89 Boston
Boston 85-100 New York
Boston 86-89 New York
New York 96-102 Boston

Depends how much you value big game/playoff experience despite being the lesser team ability wise I guess.

I think New York will cover

FAIR POINT MAYBE NOT IN TERMS OF HISTORY BUT THEY SPENT THE PAST 2 MONTHS EXPERIMENTING WITH CERTAIN PLAYERS KNOWING THEY NEEDED A BIG PLAYOFF SHOWING THIS SEASON. THEY MIGHT CAUSE AN UPSET TODAY
