Who's going it all? Will the Nuggets come back? etc...

The finals is probably going to be the Heat vs Thunder. Well, that's what I think, so, what's your opinion?

how old is he

36. Michael Jordan officially retired at the age of 36 too I think.

plus new coaches and staff should be a good thing (unless ur mike brown)

Lol you're right. But you can't really replace a coach like Phil Jackson.

look at this celtics just won the game
both series are tied 2-2

That was a good game. LeBron with his diving skills. And I can't believe Wade missed that final shot.

I think he should've not went with the fadeaway because the pump fake got Rondo or Ray Allen, not sure, on their feet to the left and so yeah.

OKC won the game today. Looks like they'll close it out at home in the next game. Spurs need more players to step up and they need Tony Parker to make his shots. San Antonio had a good start at the beginning but Durant just really killed it in the 2nd half. Pressure is on the Thunder though. It's going to be a close out game. More expectations at home too.

With or without Phil Jackson they should bring back the triangle offense. Because right now, it's "Let's pass to Bynum!" or "Let's pass to Kobe! They'll do everything! Yay!" If the Lakers keep Gasol and Bynum they have to step up to have a chance to beat a high caliber team like OKC, Miami, or San Antonio.

true but hes not as good as duncan
are you kidding me? duncan can barely make a free throw, he's still a good player but not at shooting, and on last night's game Manu made 3 consecutive 3 pointers

Isn't there a chance that the Lakers will get Dwight Howard?

Yeah, he over did it. He had a wide open 3 and just made it harder for himself.

Just a chance, but I heard Howard want's to play with Deron Williams and the Nets, I think or the Nets want him there.
Yeah, he over did it. He had a wide open 3 and just made it harder for himself.

But I'm not surprised that he still missed it. I mean he's not known to be the best 3 point shooters. He's great in the paint. And one thing. He should've drove it in and scored, there was about 5 seconds left on the clock. Plenty of time to set up a fast score inside the paint.

Big guys like Duncan and Howard, usually aren't that good with free throws. There only at about 60%-75% or sometimes even less than 60%. You can't compare Duncan with Manu. Dirk is the best power forward that can shoot as far as I know for this year. But Kevin Garnett is pretty good too.

A close game with the Celtics and Heat. Celtics leading too. Miami is 0-10 in the postseason for clutch shots. I want to see how this turns out. If Boston wins, well it looks like they'll win. It would be incredible. Anyone laughing at the Heat? (I still like DWade though.)

well he had to decide whther to go for the 3 or go for the layup
that is an every day NBA game decision
he just chose differently

I take back every bad comment I said about OKC, they earned my respect. Now i'm just hoping that the Heat loses so that every bandwagon can cry.

Well, Tim Duncan and the Spurs have gotten 4 championships I believe within the past ten years. I'm happy the Spurs lost even though they're still a good team. But now OKC has it's chance to win the finals. If they go against the Celtics, they'd win. Too much firepower on offense and defense for OKC. Unless Rondo does something crazy like a triple doulbe in all the games of the series. But I don't see that happening. Westbrook can play pretty good defense.
I can't believe Boston's actually up 3-2 on them.

Same here, I was so shocked that they lost at home. But it's probably going to go to Game 7. And the Heat have the upper hand. Unless if they blow it up at home again.
