Of those four teams, despite the Bulls having the better record, I'm picking the Heat to be in the finals. They had no problems with the Bulls last year in the playoffs (4-1), and I expect the same this year.

As far as the Lakers are concerned, they lost by one point against the Bulls in their only meeting this season. Last year they split. 11-2 against the West it really doesnt amount to a hill of beans. They wont even make it to the finals.

The Lakers won't make the western conference finals.

Hard to take you seriously when you talk about how bad the east is and how the Lakers are going to win it all this year and then I have to tell you they have a losing record against the east.

The Heat vs. Bulls is the biggie.

The only thing I'm interested in about the Knicks game is seeing Noah and Chandler battle it out as they are comparable players and best defensive centers in the league after Dwight Howard. It's hard to gauge Noah's progress against Howard.

Ever since Lin wanted it out in the media that he is friends with Tim Tebow, I want him to fail and fall flat on his face from now until the end of the season. So I think we maybe looking at the beginning of the end with Lin because he has now had a bad game at home which was something that has not happened since he came off the bench. So there is nowhere for him to go now but down and like I said yesterday the Knicks will not make the playoffs.

Lin is going to be around the NBA longer than Tebow will be around the NFL so I suggest you pace your hatred of him.

Oh really?? Ok well Lin is now playing bad basketball at home against winning teams which means there is nowhere for him to go but down because he has not shown once ounce of improvement when playing winning teams. So it looks like he doesn't have that same confidence anymore that he had when he played against the Lakers and Mavs. But if he continues like this how long do you really think he is going to be around? How many PG's do you know stay around in the NBA that

1. Makes bad passes
2. Has a poor handle
3. Can't hit open jump shots



That''s not a good combination to have when you are a starting point guard in the NBA

You show up after his bad games clueless as usual and ignoring the 2 previous games where he played well on the road vs Milwaukee and the Spurs.
