The 2010-2011 NBA season is less than a week away, ladies and gentleman. Players, analysts, and fans can finally stop yapping about who is going to do what and watch the action unfold. It’s time to shut up and play.
My NBA Finals matchup is not a popular one. I have pitted the “old” Boston Celtics with the “less old” San Antonio Spurs. I have outlined in a previous article the reasons for my prediction. I will hold true to this prediction through thick and thin as the regular season plays out. Any analyst or fan predicting a result outside the established norm has to have a strong conviction. That is what I have, and am subsequently here to instate it. The projected three-peat champion Lakers will fall this year due to a vastly improved Spurs roster. There are a number of keys in order for this to come to fruition.
Warning: What follows may shock some readers (especially delusional Laker “fans” caught up in the mystique and inaccurate belief that they are the only championship team in the West)
Note: I am not a Laker hater. I’m just a man who believes in the improbable.
