Who here honestly believes in their soft fleshy hearts that the NBA Finals will include any two other teams than the Lakers and Cavaliers?
Much like the epic matchup last year between the Lakers and the Celtics, the Kobe/LeBron matchup for the NBA championship was foreordained from before the foundation of the 2008/2009 season. It is, as the French say, inevitable.
So be sure to watch in the upcoming days and weeks as every call, every bounce and every basket seems to go the Lakers' and Cavaliers' way until they meet in the NBA Finals. Should be fun.
