Alrighty guys and gals, they couldn't of planned it any better than this. The best team from the East versus the best from the West.

So, who wins and in how many games?

I say lakers in 6, kobe is just playing better and better, and hopefully gasol doesnt have to spend so much energy on defense with perkings like he did with Duncan. Hopefully Odom will manage to stay out of foul trouble against Garnett.

Go Lakers!!

Lakers will ease. Garnett isn't a champion, he's 20, 10 and 5. I can't imagine how annoying it'll become when the Garnett groupies think they can start talking about him in the same sentence as Duncan.

Duncan=champion
Garnett=leech

I fell asleep during the first quarter.

Pierce was unreal. I only watched half the game, but caught the rest of the highlites this morning. Should be an interesting series.

haha ... no shit, I was thinking this, this morning regarding Pierce's "injury" last night. Knowing that he's the attention hi is and has always had a flair for the dramatic, would faking an injury really surprise you?

Apparently Phil Jackson might think so and as well this writer:

Quote:
He lay in a heap on the parquet floor, visibly weeping into the silk-suited sleeve of his doctor.

He was pushed in a wheelchair down a narrow back hallway, head down, season over.

Paul Pierce, the Boston Celtics captain, was carried from the opening game of the NBA Finals in the third quarter Thursday with an apparent serious knee injury that momentarily deadened and distracted the Lakers.

At which point, Pierce came running back to finish them off.

To nearly 50 years of delicious Celtics-Lakers lore, add a new apparent bit of chicanery.

Call it the Fake N'Shake.

The Celtics won Game 1, 98-88, on the momentum of a recovery that smacked more of professional wrestling than professional basketball.

When Pierce crumpled on the floor after being apparently faked out of his kneecap by Kobe Bryant with 6:52 left in the third quarter, the Lakers led by four points.

When he returned after just 1:45 had ticked off the game clock, the Celtics led by one.

The "Rocky" theme played. The crowd roared. Pierce hobbled out with drama dripping from every step.

He was so hurt, he immediately began sprinting around the stunned Lakers defenders.

He was in such pain, he hit consecutive three pointers late in the period that gave the Celtics the lead for good.

At which point, a Lakers season filled with colorful adjectives had been reduced to one word.

C'mon!

Afterward, Pierce played the part of the resurrected hero, shaking his head at the wonder of it all.

"You know, I think God sent this angel down and said, 'Hey, you're going to be all right, you need to get back out there, show them what you've got,' " he said.

The Lakers, meanwhile, were just shaking their heads, period.
