  1. Who else other than Mr. Lin? He's not bad at all.
  2. Okay, that one maybe is just a little too far...but he probably will opt out or his championship window is shut. I believe the 76ers would be a team that LeBron would like because of Holliday, Turner, and Bynum.

There's this bearded guy on the Rockets who's pretty good and not a complete liability on both ends of the court like Lin.

Turner is very mediocre at best and wants out of Philly. There's no guarantee that Bynum is coming back. Most of all, Philly just isn't a free-agent destination in today's NBA.

I firmly believe that if LeBron opts out, he's going back to Cleveland, where he and Kyrie will rule the league.

That being said, I don't see LeBron opting out. There's just too much talent to walk away from in Miami.

And with that, here are my completely uninformed predictions:

2013 NBA Finals:

Heat over Spurs in 6

LeBron James Finals MVP

2014 Eastern Conference Finals:

Heat over Bulls in 5

2014 Western Conference Finals:

Rockets over Thunder in 7

2014 NBA Finals:

Heat over Rockets in 5

LeBron James Finals MVP

I concede. I still think the Sixers will make some confrence finals and the Rockets will win a championship, though.

No...they just woudn't make it until 2019. Against the Blazers. Reminds me....

2019 Eastern Conference Finals: Cavaliers < Wizards in 7

2019 Western Conference Finals: Trail Blazers > SuperSonics in 4

2019 NBA Finals: Trail Blazers > Wizards in 5, Andrew Wiggins Finals MVP

They would come in the 2017-18 season along with the Virginia Beach Squires.

When's the last time a guy got named Finals MVP because of his defensive prowess?

A decent argument can be made for Duncan in '05. Same thing with Olajuwon the two times he won it as well.

Most of your Finals MVP's though were either offensive playmakers or got it down on both ends of the floor.

As for my Finals predictions for the next five years, I'm thinking Orlando is going to surprise people with a couple trips to the Finals. I could see Nikola Vucevic as a future Finals MVP. Phoenix looks really good out in the West as well. Michael Beasley is going to show once and for all why he should have been drafted ahead of Derrick Rose.

I think those two teams will just alternate who wins the title for the next five years. Maybe the Bobcats/Hornets will sneak in, but that's about it. Oh and look out for Sacramento as well. Looking at their current roster, I think they have the makings of a dynasty there. I really do. If Jimmer Fredette can ever figure out how to handle the ball better, look out. 60 win team easily I'd say.
