Lakers and Rocket should be a really fun series to watch.

I reckon Lakers in 5, but every game will be exciting to watch and probably high scoring.

Clippers should make short work of Denver.

Sets up an all LA conference finals which is what the NBA wanted lol.

Lakers have demolished the Nuggets so far.

Heat are looking dangerous but I am praying my Celtics can get it done.

Fixed it for ya!
Every time the camera pans to him he's having a sook. Heat had a good chance today but fucked it with too many low-percentage shots in the last quarter.
Everyone sooks and complains to the ref. It's just amplified on Lebron because he is Lebron. I don't blame him tho, he gets fouled every time he goes to the hole pretty much.

Miami don't have the star power to win. Butler is a good number 2, his passiveness in offence yesterday proved that. Lebron in the 4th showed that he is still Lebron, best player in the world. Did not miss a FT and hit 2 go ahead buckets.

I don't follow the NBA at all, apart from NBA2K lol. Watching the last few games though it just seems like LeBron is in the refs face about every single thing, he's the Cameron Smith of American sport.

I think it's part of it. Good players know that refs play a major part in whether your team wins or not, so the more time you spend manipulating them and trying to get them on your side the better.

True. Just hate seeing officials stand by and let themselves get dictated to by a select few. Tell them to fuck off and shut up or else they'll be watching from the sideline. Absolutely hate it.

He’s always whinging. The cherry evans of the NBA. James Harden is just as bad and plays for fouls which I hate. Cameron Smith approaches the ref calmer than the other sooks. I can’t wait for a normal NBA season and when I can get to some games

4th ring and 4th Finals MVP for LeBron.

I think he gets one more ring next year. If LeBron can manage to stay at his current standard and AD improves as he has each year then I don't think they get stopped, especially considering they'll be able to give the two superstars a better supporting cast next season. They should be looking at adding two 3-and-D type players.

Next season will be wild though, Lakers, Clippers, Nets, Bucks, Warriors, Boston, Nuggets, Heat, Raptors and 76ers could all be finals contenders. Mavericks and Suns are on the way up too.

They need to fix their back court - would say picking up someone like Fournier or Joe Harris will help. As well as re-upping Rondo. KCP has proven he can be relied upon when it counts, but over the course of a season they gotta figure out depth issues and shooting woes.

Either way, Lakers will go back to back. Can't see anyone really getting close.

Bring on the season tomorrow.
It should be interesting. I don’t want Lakers to win again but they probably will. Nets should do well. Harden is a fuckwit. Simmons needs to step up. I hope there isn’t too many injuries this season
