3. Boston Celtics

It's pretty predictable what I am going to say about the Celtics.

Yes, Garnett is hurt and all that. But there are other reasons.

Big Baby Davis is not a starter.

Also, once in a while Ray Allen honestly scares me, but Game One against the Bulls pushed me over the limit. Everyone has a bad game, but that bad? This wasn't the first time it has happened, either.

Paul Pierce is a beast, but he is no Kobe. My best of luck to him unless the Lakers play Dallas.

2. Los Angeles Lakers

I don't really see any flaws in the Lakers' game, but I don't think Kobe can do it without Shaq.

Kobe is the best player in the league, but they won't win. It sounds very stupid, but unless Pau Gasol turns into a young Shaq, ripping down hoops, then forget about it.

1. Cleveland Cavaliers

THIS IS THE KING'S YEAR!

We will get that championship earlier than Jordan did.

Mo Williams is an all-star, and LeBron is like a grown man playing with kids. And Big Z will turn it up. He is the reliable center that every star needs.

In the end. LeBron and his team will take the championship!
