Tim Duncan & His Spurs?
Kobe Bryant & His Lakers?
Shaquille O'Neal & LeBron's Cavs?
They have no weak links. Plus they have a solid bench.
if odom signs back on. if not clev. I think clev. will still make a big splash in this offseason or before the trade deadline.
I would say the Lakers. I dont think any team will knock them out come playoff time. Barring injury.
I think Kobe is on a mission to separate himself from Shaq as much as possible, and a fifth ring would certainly go a long way in that effort. I'll take the Lakers on this one, but it won't be a cakewalk, with Duncan and the Spurs back on their toes with Parker, a healthy Ginobili, and newly single Richard Jefferson lol
they added jefferson and mcdyss so it improved their depth. for the i think if they can re sign odom then they'll have a chance but i dont think its gona happen. Even though the cavs got shaq hes too old, but he can prove me wrong.
fisher and kobes lakers
Lakers or Spurs. No way Cavs, they have a bad supporting class if they were to make a run for it. The Lakers have had Fisher as a big player in the finals last year. The Celtics had Posey who was amazing. The Spurs have Ginobili who made all the clutch plays. The Heat had Antoine Walker who shot the 3 when it counted, and so on. The Cavs might have someone like Gibson starting, I mean someone of Gibson's talent would be on the bench. Also, if they Cavs do trade to get better I suggest they trade Mo Williams and one of their big men for a nice combo guard like Redd-Westbrook-or McGrady. Otherwise, I see the Cavs getting knocked out in the second round of the playoffs.
Lakers. Artest will fit in with kobe, fisher will not lose them the title, maybe. Front court is solid especially with Odom.
Once the Cavs run into the Magic or Celtics they are going to get beat. I just think having Fisher at PG is going to catch up with the Lakers. The Spurs have a definite advantage over the Lakers at PG. Also Tim Duncan is better than Gasol or Bynum. Plus the Spurs have a better bench than the Lakers. That is why I think San Antonio has the best chance.
Cavs- Shaq isn't a mjor upgrade to me
Lakers- If odom back....the skys the limit for them
Spurs- Jefferson, parker, ginobali, duncan........all had there share of injuries last year...if thats not the issue....they can battle the lakers in the conference then whoever wins will win the finals
Barring injuries, specifically to Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobli, the Spurs will defeat the Boston Celtics in the NBA finals this year.
Kobe is flat out better then either Duncan or Shaq by a landslide. It's not even close right now. He will push Ron, Pau, and everyone else very hard.
lAMAR COMES BACK I SAY THE LAKERS but if he doesnt the Spurs have this thing all but locked up
