Default Pick Your NBA Champion a.k.a. The "Lesser Of Two Evils" NBA Finals Thread

Pick your poison. The team that everybody hates (Los Angeles Lakers) against the area with easily the most annoying fans on the planet (Boston Celtics).

Besides picking the team, pick the games. Those who pick correctly will be given the power to ban somebody for a week.

OK not really. But vote.

Calm down child.

I wish they could both lose. Either way it's going to be unbearable.

There is no poison. Lakers all the way! Taking them in 6 games with their home court advantage.

I wonder which player Phil Jackson is going to start talking **** about before this series. He'll probably say something lame like, Rondo gets away with traveling or something, or Garnett throws elbows and doesn't get called for them, hahaha.

I'd have to say the Lakers will probably win. The way Kobe is playing right now, he's making almost anything he throws at the rim. I know the Celtics are a much better defensive team then the Suns but there is nobody on this planet that can cover him, and sometimes not even 2 guys keep him from making circus shots consistantly. I think the key for Boston to win is Rondo has to penetrate the lane all day long. None of the Laker guards can cover him. He really is the key for Boston. If he plays great, they have a chance.

It's really simple for the Lakers: Keep Rondo out of the paint and contest jumpers. The aging 3 can't create their own shot vs our match-ups - they need Rondo to do the heavy lifting (similar to a Nash-led team.) If the Lakers can contain the amount of damage Rondo does in the paint they will show Boston just how old they have become - plain and simple. Boston won their series because nobody on the floor could contain Rondo while matching up with Peirce. The Lakers have the pieces to take all those match-ups away - and they will.

It's about the equivalent of what it would be like if the Raiders were an NFC team and were facing the Broncos in the Super Bowl.

I'd really say that the Celtics will have to control the game from the defensive end, which is what they do. They have to hold the Lakers in the 90s. If the Lakers can go off for 100+ a game then the Celtics don't have much of a chance. But if the games are played in the 80s to 90s point range, then the Lakers are going to have real problems.

The Lakers have been out played at the point guard position in every series, but they haven't had a Game 7 yet. This series will be no different. They'll get out played by Rondo at point guard. If the Lakers offense can run efficiently then it won't matter if Rondo out plays them. But if the Celtics D controls the games, then Rondo will be a huge factor.

Lakers in 6, hoping that it's a sweep though either way so it can just get over with.

I see the Celtics front line of Perkins, Garnett, Sheed handling the Lakers front line just like a couple of years ago. Kobe will get his 30 but the junk that Gasol, Bynum, and Odom have been getting against smaller teams won't happen here and they will lose in 5. After the losses pile up look for the blame to fall on Bynum who has been overrated since he joined the NBA. Everyone is talking about not matching up w/Kobe but really the Lakers are the ones who have the most matchup problems. Celtics are hot and there "D" is really strong right now.

Broncos by 8. They're a touchdown better than the Lakers, and playing on their home diamond should give the Broncos an extra field goal for cushion.

Just because I think it would be funny to see it happen, I'll go with the Celtics for the sweep...
