Talented as the Suns are, I don't believe a team without a dominant player can win.

Yeah - if only they had the NBA's Most Valuable Player.   Oh wait...

We should probably write off the Detroit Pistons as well.  No way they can beat Shaq and the best shooting guard in the conference . . .

You are wrong ambulamce chaser. The Pistons are battle tested and the heat are not. We creamed the Laker slast year when they had Shaq, Kobe, and Payton. The heat have almost no experience beinf this far. Whon won Game 1? We did by holding wade to 16 points and The Heat didn't score the last 5 minutes of the game.

I thought most people would get that my post was clearly sarcastic, with "best shooting guard in the conference" an obvious reference to Kobe last year and to Wade this year . . . maybe I should have added

I missed the sarcasm, but I think Shaq has a better team surrounding him now than any ensamble he ever had before. Trouble is the rest of the NBA got better and he has gotten older. I'd like to see the Suns pull through, but its looking pretty bleak now at 0-2. They really miss Johnson (Anthony, not Kevin). So, between the Pistons and the Spurs, I'd take the Pistons. I love how the NBA is a guessing game again, so many good teams. Pacers will be great again next year, even without Reggie, Heat will be strong, Pistons, Spurs, Nets, Rockets, Mavs. Curious to see how the Cavs work out with their new coach and to see their off-season moves. Same with the Lakers, if Phil Jackson comes back. People forgot about Kobe this year, hes still the best 2 in the game arguably edging out T-Mac and Iverson. I intentionally left out the Nuggets because they have Carmelo Anthony whom I can't stand, and because they play dirty. They remind me of the Trailblazers a few years back. Good to see the NBA back on the right track. Eric

Ernest and other international posters: How big is the NBA outside the US? Do people care? Eric

I still think the Heat will beat the Pistons. The Pistons beat a Lakers team where Shaq and Kobe had no help. Miami is deeper, plus any team with Shaq has an automatic advantage in the post even though he's injured. Edit: Spurs v.s Heat, Heat in 7.

I can't believe my Pistons threw away that game last night. It is going to be a seven game series I feel now.

Looks that way, then again they managed to steal game one and thus home court advantage (Miami and Detroit are excellent road teams, though) koji
