2009 NBA Finals

Los Angeles Lakers win 4-1 vs the Orlando Magic

I know the Lakers were the better team and they deserve to win.

BUT...
It wasn't as one sided as a 4-1 series.

There are many IF's that play into this.

If Jameer Nelson steps up on Derek Fisher rather than letting shoot the game winning 3pt shot. Magic win.. It's now 3-2 Lakers up.

If Courtney Lee hits that alley-oop layup as time expires. It's 3-2 Magic up.

2 plays of less than 3 seconds made a very good and close series, seem like a complete domination if you didn't watch that series.

That's why we play the game of basketball, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN AND THAT'S WHY IT'S THE BEST SPORT EVER.

could have been closer.

could have been closer. Could have been a sweep as well with the magic's one win coming by 4 points and being decided in the final seconds.

Yeah that's why I'm saying the game of basketball if so perfect that every team has a last chance to win.

That is so true because you

That is so true because you can also say that about the year Boston won, that series was closer than people will admit to.

And don't forget this almost

And don't forget this almost didn't happen!! Denver almost swept LA in the Western Conference Finals. If only the nuggets could have in bounded the ball in games 1 and 3, we would have been seeing the Magic play the Nuggets in the Finals!!

What about this year? Teams that need to be thought of as possible contenders. (I will not mention the lakers or the cavs because those two are obvious picks)
Orlando, Dallas, Denver, Utah and Phoenix. (phoenix though is pushing it)
