I beg to differ, the only person that gave us a problem last year was Kevin Garnett and he is out for the season. I think we are going to take Boston also.

Orlando will take care of Loston. Think Cavs/Magic would be an interesting series.

Los Angeles you should be listening to this guy. Orlando is the only team that stand a snow balls chance in hell at beating the cavs in a series and that is highly unlikely as well.

Yeah, Boston can't do it without KG.. Most likely it will be Cavs vs Lakers IMO..

The Magic don't seem mentally strong enough to win against the Boston. The first game they had with Boston they were up 20 and some how they caught up to 4 points.. However, the second game, Boston just dominated them..

The Magic will be fine. They were strong enough to win in the Boston. We'll see what happens after 2 games in Orlando.

Sure, be my guest. Kevin Garnett is a beast...Boston is a much stronger team when he wasn't injured. I don't see Boston going very far because there is no one on that team that can cover Lebron as well as Gernett did. IMO

We will see.

The question is, can Lebron guard Kobe? Or can Kobe guard Lebron?

No way they would guard each other. Both coaches don't want their superstar to get into foul troubles. We might see the match up in the 4th. However for most of the game its probably going to be Trevor guarding Lebron and Delonte guarding Kobe.

I doubt that. All the games I watch against Cavs VS Lakers, Lebron is always on Kobe. however on the other end, someone else is on Lebron. I don't think anyone is capable of guarding Kobe in the Cavs except Lebron and no one has potential to guard Lebron at all on the Lakers.

Lakers swept Cavs this year in regular season.

The Cavs/Hawks series is boring, the lead builds up early and go from there. If I were Lebron, I would do a between the legs dunk..just to really shit on Smith and show him 'how to do this, son'...to quote 'Bron's fav rapper.

I can't believe Laker fans are bitching about "It's BS that Fisher got suspended and Rondo didn't". It's not even the same story. Rondo's foul happened under the basket where all madness broke out. Derek's foul happened probably 40 ft from the backboard in a defensive position.

LOL I was really laughing when Celtics went to play game 7 because of KG's Gatorade commercial and "Game 7" fire spitting dog.

I still find it funny that now Bynum is back, dude still gets no play time and Gasol is still playing center, just like last year.

Kobe has more of an MJ style to it, which is why I still think he's the best overall player in the league, even though I'm not really a Laker fan. Dude will juke and jab and do a fadeaway from 20 ft away and drains it to make you look stupid for thinking you can check him.

Lebron is just a hybrid. He's built like a center, but with 6 steps, he'll travel across the court. This is why he's so lethal, he's muscular, fast, and pretty tall for even a forward position.

I always find it hilarious that when he shoots a 3, he really shoots a 3. Not from just beyond the arch, but nearly at half court. And he does so with little effort, just a minor flick of the wrist.

I was too young to really understand the 1992 Dream Team, but now that I've been following NBA for about ~15 years...I look back and think how deep the '08 Dream Team was. No one had a chance, lol.

You can't guard either one of them.

Hardcore Laker Fan here, and yeah that was Bullshit Flagrant 2? I mean even if you were gonna get crazy I would say Flagrant 1 at the most. In my a opinion though it was just a hard foul by Artest trying to stop the ball, not a flagrant.

I hope the League rescinds that call. Win or Lose for either side, man this is a damn good series.

Artest just keeps building a bad rep for himself. He plays dirty, trash talks, commits hard fouls UNNECESSARILY, and is just another Rasheed Wallace. He is always looking for a fight. If you bring all of these together he did deserve a flagrant 2, even though it wasnt advertent.

I'm sure they will reverse the call. That was an ordinary hard foul. The league has gone soft with some of the fragrance fouls being called in the last couple of days.

It was a regular hard foul in my eyes but because it's Ron, it's a flagrant 2. Sucks to be him.
