my top 3 are LA Lakers, Houston Rockets, and Boston Celtics... i choose the lakers as the team with the best chance of winning it all because i believe they are more experienced now, and their line-up is also solid... they have the needed role players and leader (Kobe!) to take them to the promised land... i consider the rockets as a darkhorse and with the acquisition of ron artest, i think they become finally have someone to stop the opposition's perimeter scorers like Kobe, Ginobili, Pierce, and James to name a few... theirchances of winning the championship will depend on 2 factors: one, artest should be on his right frame of mind all season long... if he can stay out of trouble, both on and off the court, then the rockets chave reason to celebrate... they also need to stay healthy, especially yao and mcgrady... with boston's big three, they are always a team to contend with for the title... they may have lost james posey but as long as guys like rondo, perkins, and house can step up, they have a decent chance for a repeat...

on the contrary, i think the lakers have good chemistry... kobe is no longer the kobe of the past who wanted to get out of shad's shadows... he is now more of a team player... andrew bynum, pau gasol, and lamar odom make a solid front court... they may have lost rony turiaf but i don't think it will have a big impact on the lakers... kobe will continue to be a force in the back court... i like their chances on winning the championship...
