    I think it will be Phoenix or Miami.

    Rooting for the Suns; think it will be the Heat.

    Sticking with my original pick at the beginning of the year, SA.

    SA is a good choice too. I just think Shaq is more motivated. And Wade may be the most improved player. In fact, he seems to have raised his game in the playoffs by a huge amount.

    Wade is a poor man's MJ at this point (EXTREMELY high praise).

    Shaq healthy Miami's a lock. I want to say San Antonio if Shaq doesn't fully recover ,but Duncan isn't his usual self they are having too much trouble with the Sonics to confidently face the Suns much less the Heat.

    Over the weekend, I heard the host of a sports radio talk show state that he would take Wade over LeBron.  As good as Wade is (and he is really good), that's just crazy talk.

    I like San Antonio too.

    With Joe Johnson out, I'm starting to fear that my Suns won't do it. They still might slip by Dallas, but they'll have trouble with San Antonio - guess I better start rooting for Seattle.

    Lebron certainly has tremendous upside, but at this point, I'm forced to agree. Wade has stepped it up in the playoffs.

    How can you count out the defending champs? I am picking Detroit.

    the lakers would have won last year if Jackson had been allowed to bench Kobe.

    It's all about the big diesel.

    What do you think about the youngest serbian player for who they changed the NBA rules?

    I personally loves that he gives himself nicknames. My favorite was "MDE", Most Dominant Ever.

    Being FOCT (The Forum's Official Conspiracy Theorist), I think Kobe tanked in the playoffs last year to get his way- Jackson and Shaq out. He and Buss are a much better match...

    Brad:

    Diamondbacks are doing pretty well too these days.

    Yes. Go Sonics.

    Everyone go ahead and underestimate us. We can get past SA at least...

    maybe.

    Or it could just be another Seattle sports team collapse.

    Anyone remember the Mariners 114 win season? We didn't clear the first round that year.

    Or the Seahawks tanking hard every year in the playoffs, getting beat by the Rams 3 FRIGGIN TIMES LAST YEAR.?.?.?

    Oh well, at least the Seattle Storm won the WNBA championship.

My fiancee is a mathematician, and was mildly amused. Me, I had to lay on the floor for half an hour while my stomach stopped cramping up from the laughter. I would really like to see Shaq host SNL.

    Shaq has had his humorous moments. I'm a Lakers fan and I remember last year when he made an alley oop dunk with his left hand and stared at it as he ran back and shouted "It's alive." And, of course, there was his great comment of "One lucky shot deserves another." After Fisher's shot sank the Spurs in game 5. He referred to TD's lucky top of the key bank shot.
