Prediction: King James relocates his court to New York.
While I don't care for them, I never doubted the Lakers as best bet to make it out of the West. As the Warriors enjoy their summer, Bay Area fans don't have too much invested in any team playing now, however; I'll argue many are rooting for the Phoenix Suns and beloved former Warrior Jason Richardson. The Suns are looking good, as they now have a 2-0 series lead on the Spurs. Barring any Lakers injury, I don't see the Suns getting through LA to the finals (assuming the Suns finish of the Spurs).
My NBA Finals prediction of Lakers versus Magic looks safe at the moment. These teams defend the rim with solid interior players and have deep benches, ideal for the grind-it-out style that wins championships. A healthy Jameer Nelson gives Orlando the edge this time around.
