Nobody can touch the Lakers in a 7 game series if Bryant, Gasol, Bynum, Odom, and Artest are all healthy. The Lakers starting 5 is just too strong and if their bench guys can knock down shots (especially Vujacic) they are unbeatable. They can match up with any team in the league because of Odom.

In the East, I think it will be either the Magic or the Cavs that make it to the Finals. If the Cavs have to play the Magic in a series though I don't know if they can beat them. The Cavs changed a good chunk of their roster because they were worried about matching up with the Magic.

Lakers then Cavs. Then maybe the Nuggs, given how well they play against the top teams in the league.

I think the Nuggets team of this year is as a strong of a contender as we ever had before.
I really like our chances this year...

That is so incorrect it isn't even funny. Are they worried about the Magic? Sure they are but they didn't change crap from their roster because of it. They added size and depth to the bench that is all. Z will be back in a few days. They gave up nothing for Shaq and Jamison nor did they change the core of the team. I mean really what did they give up for Shaq and Jamison, Ben Wallace, Sasha Pavlovic, and a first round draft pick. Find me a GM that wouldn't make those trades and I will show you a guy that should be out of a job.

BS. The Magic completely exposed the Cavaliers in the playoffs last year. Cleveland had too many small guys on the perimeter and had NOBODY to match up with Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkoglu (don't get me started on Mike Brown having LeBron guarding Rafer Alston in that series) They also kept putting the slow footed Zydrunas Ilgauskas on Dwight Howard and he ate them alive.

Cleveland brought in a bunch of taller perimeter players just so they could match up with Orlando. They signed Jamario Moon, Anthony Parker, Darnell Jackson, traded for Antawn Jamison. They knew having Delonte West and Mo Williams guard the bigger Magic perimeter players killed them in that series.

And how was I criticizing anything that Danny Ferry did? I think he did a good job in the offseason. The main reason he made the changes he did is to match up with the Magic. If you knew basketball you would understand that. Cleveland matched up perfectly with everyone in the Eastern Conference... except Orlando.

Nuggets. they have a winning record against every division leader in the league, and have shown they can win if Billups and Melo are out. as good as LA and Cleveland are, I think Denver is the most dangerous team in the league.

You're correct, because they have massive record against the 9 best teams in the league. Which is what the playoffs are about.

They kinda suck against mediocre and bad teams ... like 33-25 or something.

Bunch of Nuggets homers in here.

I quit cheering for the Nuggets after they kept letting go of talented players. They let Mutombo, McDyess, and Jalen Rose just walk away from Denver. They haven't been my favorite team since.

So you are holding a grudge from like 1996? At what point do you get over it and realize they have put together probably the best Nuggets team in history?

you can't keep hating on a franchise because of mistakes from a previous regime. now the Kroenke and Vandeweghe are handling things, the franchise has taken a lot of steps into becoming a legit factor in the NBA.

Not really a grudge, its not like a root against them or anything. I just don't have a favorite NBA team anymore.

I like to watch the superstars play now.

Imagine that.
This is probably the best team ever.
Carmelo is going to be the best Nuggets player in its history

Bernie Bickerstaff was responsible for the dismantling of the Nuggets. He let key players walk without getting anything of value for them.

The guy should've been sued for incompetence.

Vandeweghe has been gone for several years now. Just FYI.

Oh, and I voted for the Nuggets. Just something special about this team.

Good (rare) non-football sports day today. Nugs@Lakers AND USA/Canada gold medal game both start at 1:30.

No commercials for me today!

Thanks for the reminder, I'll be switching between that and the Gold Medal hockey game.
