    I think the Heat are going to roll through Boston.

    I think the Spurs will beat OKC in a close one.

    The outcome of the final will depend on the availability of Mr. Bosh.

    Who ya like?

    Spurs will dominate OKC and the Heat. They're unstoppable right now.

    I think the winner of game 2 of Spurs-Thunder win the series. I kind of think the Thunder will steal one, although I hope not. It appears the Heat are going to destroy the Celtics. In a Thunder-Heat matchup, I'd go with the Heat in 6.

    Although, in a Heat-Spurs matchup, I can see the Spurs winning it by exploiting the advantage at the 1 with Parker and at the 5 with Duncan. Ginobli will force either Wade or LeBron to play hard defensively. They're also vastly, vastly better coached than the Thunder, and Pop has forgotten more basketball than Spoelstra knows as well.

    Elaborate on what you mean when you say "dominate," please.

    Shh, let it play out. Slow burn.

    I think a potential Heat-Spurs matchup will depend on whether the Spurs got stretched to 7 games against OKC. If the Heat dispatch the Celtics in 5, and the Spurs get pushed to 7, I like the Heat.

    You really think it would matter, in such a short season?

    Possibly. Although, the Spurs, having swept the first two series, would have still played less games than the Heat even if it goes to 7 and the Heat win in 5.

    I think that it might because I think it would allow them to toss down a statement in game 1 (as a result of fresher legs) that would resonate through the entire series.

    I'm just spitballin' though.*

    *I have no idea what spitballin' means, but I'm pretty sure it worked there.

    It totally worked there.

    Spurs in 5 against OKC is what i meant.

    They haven't lost a game since April 11th. That's so long!

    The Celtics have the same advantage, and they just looked overmatched last night. I hope I am wrong, but Miami looks like king of the mountain to me, even with Bosh uncertain.

    It sounds dirty.

    I don't think the Heat can play with either team from the West. Bosh makes it a bit tighter.
