Conference Finals

Recommended Posts

Well the Conference Finals Are Set...Here are the matchups for the Western and Eastern Conference Finals. I will get the times for the Matchups later

Eastern Conference Finals... Defensive Player of the Year Ben Wallace and The Defending National Basketball Association World Champions Detroit Pistons will take on Big Man Shaquille O' Neal and the Number 1 Seed the Miami Heat. I say Pistons in 7.

Western Conference Finals...The NBA Most Valuable Player Steve Nash and Amare Stoudamire will try to get into their first NBA Finals when they face Tim Duncan the Number 2 seed the San Antonio Spurs as they try to get back into the NBA Finals after a year absense...My prediction, Suns in 7

Yep and my predictions tommorow they will come.

Channeling Yoda there, Tank? :lol:

With my Mavs out, now I gotta figure we're gonna see the final that most people have wanted to see since Day One ? Suns vs. Heat. I don't think either Miami or Phoenix will have a cake walk to the Finals, but they'll get there.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Spurs/Pistons in one of the least watchable Finals ever. For the casual fan, anyway.

Unfortunately, id have to agree. Although the Pistons are sometimes not a bad team to watch, especially when playing the Pacers, I compare watching the Spurs play to a slow painful death

I'm sticking with Heat vs Spurs in the finals.

Miami over Detroit in 5

San Antonio over Phoenix in 6

Just curious, how soon until America West Arena (merged with US Air) gets renamed? Maybe during the upcoming series?

Who knows, I know that when the merger between Bank One and (can't quite figure out the name of the other company at the moment) merged they were going to name it another name, but since the BOB is a very popular name, they decided to keep it the Bank One Ballpark. So who knows for the America West Arena.

Wow. Some major disrespect for the defending Champions. I think you're both giving the Heat entirely too much credit -- Wade won't put up any insane numbers against a team with a shred of... well, you know... defense. Add to that the Pistons don't have to double team Shaq -- Dwayne Wade or Damon Jones won't get many open looks.

I honestly think the Miami/Detroit series will be determined the same way as the Finals were determined last year. If the Pistons can come out and completely shut down Shaq and Wade in Game 1, then we'll probably see Detroit win in maybe 5 games or so. But I like Miami in this matchup seeing how Wade has been red hot, how they rolled over Washington in 4 games, minus Shaq in the two road wins and how they have home court advantage in the series.

Either way, this will be a quick series, it just depends on if the Pistons D can stop Miami, but I just don't see it happening.

DirtyCurty, you give the Pistons too much credit.

Heat in 4, Suns in 7, then Heat in 4 for the title.

Talk about giving someone too much credit... Keep in mind that not only are the Pistons the defending champs, they also have the best of something that you need to win championships... Shaq? No. Homecourt? No. You need DEFENSE and the Pistons have the best of that. And that's why I pick them in six.

I pick the Suns in 7, because idk about Tim Duncan being 100% and all. And in the finals, I'd take the Pistons in 6.

Whoa...you say the Pistons will win because you need defense to win...and then you go and pick the Suns over a great defensive team like the Spurs? Welcome to Contradiction City. Have you seen the Suns play defense?? Duncan has been playing pretty well - if not 100%, he's close to it.

Heat in 6.

Spurs in 5.

Alright, time to explain that...

I'm basing that pick on the fact that the Suns ran train on the Spurs this year, when they had Steve Nash. And normally I'd take the defensive team over the offensive juggernaut, but they're too damn good, the Suns are.

Now the Heat, on the other hand, they ain't no Suns, and that's why Detroit will have their way with them IMO.

Didn't the Spurs go 2-0 against the Suns this year when Duncan was in the lineup?? :therock:
