2008 NBA Championship - With So Much Talent, Who Will Win-
18 December 2012
5. Houston Rockets - Two words - Yao and McGrady. If these two can stay healthy, the Rockets could potentially go all the way. They have a decent supporting cast. Now it is as much as the stars to perform.
1. Detroit Pistons - The Pistons are talent and encounter personified. They've a deep lineup with all the makings of a championship team. Correct, Rasheed Wallace is aging a bit and didn't play his best last year, but with Chauncey Billups AdiZero Rose, Tayshaun Prince and Rip Hamilton by his side Womens Adidas Wings Ballerina, the Pistons are as great as any person in either conference.
The East can be a diverse story. You will find a significant number of great teams, but only some noteworthy teams that could possibly challenge the Western powerhouses for the title.
The NBA boasts a plethora of talented teams all of which could potentially win the championship. There's just so much talent within the league nowadays that the dynasties of old are all but dead and gone Nike Dunks PLAN SOMETHNG FOR EVERYBODY. My prediction is this: The NBA finals will feature two teams which are desperate to win championships; Steve Nash as well as the Suns against Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen as well as the Celtics. Personally, I'd adore the see the Big Ticket lastly get his due. But Nash having a fat championship ring on his finger wouldn't be a negative sight either. However, if I had been a betting man, I would put funds on the Suns to go all the way this year.
6. Utah Jazz - The Utah Jazz are a well balanced team Adidas Originals Hardland. They play very good defense and can score. With Boozer and Deron Williams becoming perennial all-star varieties, the Jazz might just have the ability to match last season's Western Conference Finals berth.
1. San Antonio Spurs - This team may possibly be a little old fashioned and boring to watch compared to a few of the run and gun teams inside the West, but with Parker, Duncan and Ginoblli all healthy, the Spurs are going to become difficult.
3. Denver Nuggets - The return of Kenyon Martin will bolster this teams championship probabilities. With 4 all-star caliber players in the starting lineup, Melo and Co. are going to good. I just hope they are able to morph into the team they are capable of becoming.
4. Dallas Mavericks - The Mavs had a record year in 2006-2007, winning 67 games and losing a mere 15. So, the question is whether or not or not Dirk can live as much as his possible, leave the kiddy pool and lastly win - inside the playoffs that's Mens Adidas Adicolor.
2. Boston Celtics - Can the Celtics get back to their winning tradition? In case you think anything else Nike Blazer Basse words or phrase, you will be a total buffoon. Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett are essentially the most skilled trio inside the league. All they have to do now is produce a bit team chemistry and they have NBA Finals written all over them.
2. Phoenix Suns - Coming off his second NBA MVP award in as several years, Steve Nash seems poised to orchestrate however one more deep playoff run. Maybe this year the Suns won't get cheated out of a Western Conference championship by Robert Horry's low cost shots.
3. Chicago Bulls - Ben Wallace, Luol Deng, Ben Gordon, Tyrus Thomas, Kirk Hinrich, Andres Nocioni and Joakim Noah. Sufficient stated. The Bulls are a deep, talented, young, risky team. And with rumors that Kobe Bryant might be making his way to Chicago, the Bulls have every single opportunity in the world to win this year.
For all those who know me, it goes with no saying that I'm an enormous Warriors fan. I bleed Blue and Yellow. And following the remarkable late-season playoff run and heart breaking loss to the Jazz in the second round last year, I'm ecstatic that the NBA season is finally upon us. It represents not only a likelihood for redemption, but also a likelihood to prove that last year was no fluke. Does that mean I believe that the Warriors are very good enough to win the championship this year? No. But, I will certainly have the time of my life watching them try. Ok, having given my shameless Warriors-for-life plug, I will now turn my concentrate to the teams that are more likely to win the championship.
The wild, wild West is most likely to live up to its name this year. There is certainly just so a lot talent that any 1 of 6 or 7 teams could make it to NBA Finals.
