For me its a tough one to call as its either Cavliers who win or the Lakers. I would have to go with the Lakers to win the championship as their a more solid and reliable team overall. Kobes got alot of help unlike the past.

Hey elmiko! I am going for the Lakers of course! Go Kobe! I am an avid Laker fan! I have been in love with their coach Phil Jackson since he played for the Knicks many years ago! I know you are way to young to even know about that! But, I loved that man and could he shoot baskets! Anyway, the Lakers are my team and they are going to win! Go Lakers!!!

I think that the Lakers will defend their title and go on to win over the Cavaliers. Kobe Bryant hate to loss in the playoffs. The lakers will have a hard time, of course, but through experience, they will capture the NBA Championship.

wow i started this discussion when the 2009 NBA Playoffs were going on. your talking about the 2010 NBA Playoffs. i think the lakers have the best chance of winning in the 2010 playoffs. they got so much talent. lebron still lacks enough help from his team in my opinion but i wouldn't count him out from still possibly having a chance at winning the nba championship in 2010. i think the lebron and the cavs are more hungry than the lakers to win the championship this year due to their frustrating loss to the magic in last years p]ayoffs. the cavs desire could beat the lakers talent in a series but the odds are against them.

I agree with you,the Lakers are more experienced and have a much deeper bench,the supporting cast are quite good. The Cavs might win the championship next year If they maintained their current line-up.

yeah its hard to see lebron retiring without a title. that would be sad with how good he is.

I do not know much about basketball but I would go with the Lakers for the same reason that you do. From what I have seen they are a very good team and have been around long enough to know when they are making a mistake. I have not heard much about the Cavaliers, and they are not as well established.

Well I think it`s hard to go against the Lakers. This team has been built around Kobe. He now has people he can trust. I still say Memphis shoould be kicked out of the NBA for the Gasol trade last year. I don`t think Cleveland is ready to win a title just yet. They are a year or two away. But I think as the finals come down will will see better games in the second round. Currently I think there are just too many teams in the playoffs. That number should be cut to maybe 4.

Its fine the way the playoffs are for me. When the 1st seed goes against the 8th seed its usually boring so i tend not to watch those games. You have a point. I feel 4 is too low. I would like to see the west and east have 6 teams each going into the playoffs.
