Did you notice that I had nothing to say about the Boston vs Orlando series? That's because I knew Boston would win and I didn't want to spoil the great post season Jameer Nelson had by publicly admitting that they didn't have a chance against the Celtics.
Look for Boston to beat up on the Lakers enough to win the finals. It all comes down to the big men and Boston is in much better shape than LA.
Bynum is hurt, Gasol is tired and Odom doesn't like contact. Artest can take a punch but he'll be so tired chasing Paul Pierce around the court that the rest of his game will be suspect.
Kobe will be Kobe, which is why the finals will be worth watching. But there is no way he can will the Lakers to overcome the bullies of Boston.
Boston in 6. And it won't be pretty.
