It’s official, we’ll be seeing another historic match up between the L.A. Lakers and the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. Looking back at my own prognostications, I was perfect in the East, where I simply stated that there would be no upsets, and there weren’t. It turns out, I should have gone with the same strategy in the Western conference, where the only lower seed to win a series was the 3 seeded Spurs beating the 2 seeded Hornets (I had them both losing in the first round, oops).
Most of you are coming to the BiCoastal Bias for my take on this Finals match up – for the simple reason that Southern California vs. New England is my area of expertise (it’s in my name, get it?). Neither team has faced a team as good as the team they will face in this the final round. I expect every game to be a trade off in domination between the Celtics defense and Kobe’s offense. In the end, Celtics in seven.
