Cavs are winning more than the Lakers or your Knicks. It'll be so nice to win the title this year.

I don't see that happening. At least not with how the Lakers played against us so far this year. And, we'll not only have the same team, but we'll have Jamison too. Gotta love the #4 who can shoot 3s.

Ok,i guess you gonna have to watch for yourself then,the lakers might not be shooting like last year,but the cav's aint exactly the team to beat either.

We can agree to disagree then. I'm looking forward to the Lakers vs. the Cavs in the finals. Looks like we'll have to wait until then to see which of us gets to say we were right.

Yup.But what if both of them are not in the finals?who do you think will be the 2 teams fighting for that ring?
I say Heat and nuggets,or celtics and nuggets.

If I couldn't pick the Cavs or the Lakers to be in the finals then my top pick from the west would be the Nuggets and my top pick from the east would be the Magic. My second choice in the west would be the Mavs and my second choice in the east would actually be the Hawks.

The heat and celtics could be x-factors. D-Wade needs his supporting cast to step up big time to make it to the finals, and the celtics would need to find their old energy to compete.

The celtics got energy,and more,they got Rasheed Wallace,if anything my pick is on the celtics again,yup,im on their bandwagon once again,and as for the heat,they really need to help Dwayne,defense is a must if they wanna get far in the playoffs.

The Heat need to get help for D-Wade because he's going to get sick of this really fast. When he's the only player playing hard D and everyone is waiting for him to make stuff happen on offense, it won't be long before he wants to walk out of Miami.

For the Celtics, it seems like you're a Wallace fan. He's aged about 7 years in the past 2, which is a shame for him. I remember watching him play the Cavs in the playoffs a few years back, and he moves and plays nothing now like he did back then. The Celtics have to worry about Kevin staying healthy too. He can't do everything like he could earlier in his career.

I cant see Dwayne walking out of the heat organization,but what he might do is ask for better players,if the players there now cant get right,because the players there now plays good,i dont see nothing wrong wit them.Now the celtics,i am a celtic fan too,im not really a Rasheed Wallace fan,i just like the way he plays,he brings so much toughness to every game he plays,even if he whines and bitch for most of the game.I think the best way to keep KG healthy is to play him less,less play,less risk of injury.

The Heat aren't a bad team. When it comes to other teams in the league, though, they're just plain overmatched. To compete with the Celtics and Cavs and Magic and Hawks on a regular basis the Heat need to add a few players. They're depending too much on D-Wade, which is the same mistake they made with LeBron early in his career.

I never liked Wallace. He is such a hothead and gets so many T's called on him. He whines and cries about everything and he also likes to showboat. That being said, he was a very good player for the Pistons. If he sucked, I would have no reason to not like him. Usually the players we don't like are the ones that do the most damage to our team, and Wallace is no exception to that. I think remembering Wallace hitting all those 3's is what made me excited to get Jamison, a player with better 3 point abilities.

The heat are a very good team,they are coherent on the defensive end.The only thing that bugs me is that Dwayne has to bust his ass by himself tryna put this team back to where they were in 06,im not saying the players on the heat are bad,and have no skills,its just that i dont think their appling their self enough,they need to play harder.
The only time i hate Wallace is when he acts a fool,other than that,hes fine.He plays good.
