    I want to go with the Magic, being that I really didn't want the Lakers in the Finals in the first place. However, the Lakers team this year is just good when they decide to show up.

    Try the EDIT button.

    I like it to be Lakers @ 5, but it would probably be Lakers @ 6.

    I bleed purple and gold.

    The Lakers. Not that I actually have a clue about basketball, but Orlando Magic is such a stupid name that it offends me.

    lol ... : ) .


    Anyways my thoughts on this matchup are that , yea it's True dwight howard is a beast and there's no stopping him downlow but how about 2 7 footers in gasol/bynum? That has to slow him down just a little right? and if they can manage to get Dwight Howard's game off track It's pretty much over because the Lakers Perimeter D is really good so no 3's for them either. Also the main factor is going to be KOBE JELLY BEAN BRYANT's clutchness. MVP MVP MVP MVP MVP!

And i change my answer up , now that i think about it , it actually might drag to about 6 games. so Lakers in 6
    Gasol and Bynum are both particularly soft. The Lakers have to either double Howard or go cheap and have Kobe put Dwight in foul trouble.

    Bynum is not soft you remember what he did to shaq? Let me refresh your memory...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhOk2QFWvbg i think he was still a rookie too , like 19-20 yrs old lol , Gasol is soft tho yea because of his Finesse playstyle but not Andrew Bynum , he just doesn't get enough touches.

    Lakers in 6 or 7.

    People don't seem to realize that the Lakers can't play their starting 5 against Orlando consistently. Rashard Lewish does not play off the post in the 4 spot, he plays around the perimeter which means Gasol has to be mobile on the perimeter. That's not gonna work too well, so they're gonna have to sub in Odom to guard Lewis and probably have Gasol on Dwight (which also won't work too well).

    There's no doubt that Dwight is going to get his points and dominate the inside against the Lakers. So the best the Lakers can do is let Dwight go 1 on 1 with whoever guards him. They can double team a little bit but that won't last too long if the Magic's perimeter game stays hot like the last two games vs. the Cavs. But anyway, I'm going with the Lakers. They got to make up for last year's beatdown in the finals.
