Im going 25%, Lakers are the defending champs with a Top 5 player of all time. Suns play too up tempo, and the Lake Show will be able to slow them down. I'd like to see the Suns win though.

It's possible the Lakers could lose it, but no chance the Suns could win it..!
Kobe and the gang are still smarting from getting eliminated by the Suns a few years ago, and have revenge on their minds, and in their hearts...
We'll see what happens, there is a eason they play the games...

Im pulling for the Suns but I don't think they have what it takes to beat LA in a seven game series. I really hope Im proven wrong though.

I've read that Kobe hasn't practiced too much and was still healing. I'm hoping this "revenge' he has his mind on works against him.. He is playing against a new Suns team now and I hope the Suns take care of business!
I can't wait til the game tonight, got my shirt and hat all ready!

I chose 25% probability that the Suns win the conference finals against the Lakers but it may be closer to 50%. Keep in mind that the Suns have a history of defeating the Lakers in the playoffs. But the Lakers this season appear better able to beat the Suns and the height factor can not be under-estimated.

25% The Lakers length will present problems for the Suns, similar to what the Jazz encountered. That being said, the Suns have been playing really well as of late and if their 3-pointers are dropping... length won't matter.

I don't really know what I can say about this series. My dislike of the Lakers is bordering on blinding. I can't be objective. I'd like us to win in 6...it will all depend on if we can win one Monday or Wednesday. If we don't I fear we'll be done in 5.
