Seems like the majority of us like the Canucks in the Stanley Cup finals but I think the NBA Finals is a pretty even matchup. I'd be surprised if this was over quickly. Who do you like?

I think it'll be tough, but I'm taking the same team I've been taking all year: The Heat.

Dallas is very good and very deep, though. I just think the Wade/James tandem is too much. Plus, they've got Haslem, Miller and Jones playing well now, and they didn't have Haslem or Miller for much of the season. I think it'll be enough for them.

Same as it was the first time they played several years ago.The Mavs will prove to be the better team and win the first 2 games handily,then the Heat will "storm back to win 4 in a row",often with the aid of some very dubious whistles on the part of zebras whenever it looks like they need help.

The NBA is as fixed as any major sport has ever been,and LBJ is the leagues darling,coupled with the fact that Mark Cuban is not exactly David Sterns favorite person,it's easy to see where this is going.

I think Dallas has a real solid chance and the the difference maker may very well be Shawn Marion.

The whistles wouldn't have mattered if Wade didn't stay aggressive, or if Dirk and the Mavs had. The Mavs let the whistles get to them. They didn't respond well at all. Yes, the refs can have an effect, but not enough for a team to win four in a row after having lost the first two fairly handily.  Players like Wade and Haslem deserve a lot of credit for playing hard and aggressive, and the Mavs deserve blame for wilting under the pressure.

But, only 2 players on each team remain: Dirk and Terry for Mavs; Wade and Haslem (the two top heroes - it was Haslem's hustle that turned that game 3 around and woke Wade up) for Heat.

I hope I'm wrong, but I just don't see the Mavs winning. They're due for a choke, and at some point Cuban will do/say something to piss off the refs. Heat in 6.

Miami an outrageous favorite (9 to 5 odds) - would take the Mavs if I bet hoops just because I think it's a tossup

I think the Heat is way better than many on this board want to admit. They SHOULD be fairly heavy favorites, IMO.

The NBA will figure a way to stretch this to 7 games.  Heat win game 7.  That's the best story for the NBA.  White guys Nowitski and Cuban finish 2nd but put up a game fight.
