The Final Four!

The Los Angeles Lakers!
The Boston Celtics!
The Orlando Magic!
The Phoenix Suns!

We are down to the nitty gritty! Who will win the NBA championship?

The usual suspects (Lakers and Celtics) are still hanging around. They have 32 combined championships [Celtics-17 & Lakers-15]. The rest of the NBA has 31 COMBINED. In no other sport have two teams combined to win +50% of the league's championships. This is, by far, the most storied rivalry in the history of championship sports. Will either one add to their collection of rings?


Will one of the 0-2 members prevail? Both the Suns (1976, 1993) and the Magic (1995, 2009) are 0-2 in the NBA Finals. The '76 Suns lost to the Celtics. The '09 Magic lost to the Lakers. One thing history has proven, if you want to win an NBA championship, more often than not, you're going to have to go thru Boston or LA. And this year is no exception.

So we are down to the NBA's version of the Final Four-- and surprise, surprise-- Boston and LA are still around.

Will it be Kobe Bryant?
Will it be Kevin Garnett?
Will it be Steve Nash?
Will it be Dwight Howard?

Let the games begin....
