Well since my Cavs faced the wrong team at the wrong time, the NBA Finals will be the Lakers VS Orlando Magic. As you can see I've changed my sig for laughs in a way to make the pain of losing minimal. I'm going to add my two cents in to explain why I think the Magic will be NBA champions. 1) Matchups-The unstoppable Cavs were exposed due to matchup problems. I don't like the Lakers matchups at all. Gasol and Bynum will not be able to play together at the same time. Bynum vs Rashard as disaster written all over it. Odom is possibly the worst perimeter defender in the league and Lewis or Turk will beat him off the dribble to create breakdowns in the defenses. 2)Dwight Howard-Gasol vs Howard? My god..hide the children. It will not be a pretty sight. Gasol is the worst starting bigman defender in the league. He made Louis Scola look like Kevin Mchale. Bynum also is a stuggling defender. Howard is just too athletic for them. 3)Make it rain-Doubling Howard will create open three's for Lewis/Turk/Peitrus and Co. Lakers are an undisciplined defensive team and Magic will just rain three's all day long. The Cavs were the best statistical defensive team and they just tore them to shreds by penetration and shooting. 4)Been there done that-Magic are 2-0 against the Lakers in the regular season.They know how to beat them in LA. 5)Finals setup-Instead of 2-2-1-1-1 it will be 2-3-2. That HEAVILY favors the Magic. If they can steal game 1 or 2 they will have 3 straight home games to close out the series. They can easily go up 3-1 after the first 4 games and take game 6 at LA.
