Alright, after its all said and done the two best teams throughout these 2010 playoffs were definitely the Lakers and Celtics.  Not just because they made it this far, but they really played consistently better than any other playoff team.  They both had to beat the best teams that the east and west had to offer, and they did it in their own way.  Lakers big men were way too much for the Suns and their shooting percentage was out the roof!! Orlando just got off to a bad start on the first three games and were playing catchup ever since, but to beat the Celtics four games in a row was completely unfathomable.   The Cavs disappointed but are still in the top 5 of NBA teams right now, without question.  The Spurs are a contender, but aging, and need a tune-up.  I dont think the Mavs have what it takes to reach let alone to win a championship,  and OKC will be in the mix for at least the next 5 years.

But enough about the losers, the Celtics and Lakers will face one another in the NBA Finals for the 12th time with Boston winning 9 of the last 11.  Its gonna be a great series no doubt, but I gotta pick the Lakers in 6 and here's why...

1) Kobe Bryant - Just like he did against the Suns, the man can take over a game by himself at any time he wants, and his shooting percentage is usually better than the rest of his team, so even if he shot it every time, the man is evidently capable of  81 points in a game, oh...he already did that? exactly.

2) Lakers Bench - They really havent had to come up big in these playoffs cuz the starting 5 are gettin it done, but thats why, they are healthy and ready to go when called upon.  Farmar can be a starting point guard on most teams and when he comes in he is just as big of a contributor as Fisher if not more with his driving capabilities.  Lamar Odom has let his game do the talking and will come close to a double-double every game, off the bench, and also provide some quality rest for Gasol and Bynum while maintaining the D.

3) Kobe Bryant - Not only his scoring but his defense should be enough to lock up Pierce or Allen, whichever Artest wont be on. 

4) Coaching - No offense to Doc Rivers but Phil Jackson is a basketball mastermind.  He will recognize what is working for the Celtics and take that away, and he also knows how to manage the playoffs games with his leadership. 

5) Kobe Bryant - its inevitable that the man will win his 5th NBA title and do everything he can in his power to make that a reality. 

I said it when the playoffs started but the LA LAkers WILL COME OUT AS THE 2010 nba champions!
