Despite the fact that neither the Los Angeles Lakers nor the Miami Heat are the No. 1 seeds in their respective conferences, both are widely considered as the favorites to be represented in the NBA Finals.

After dispatching the Philadelphia 76ers and New Orleans Hornets in the first round, respectively, both teams have their sights set on an NBA championship.

Kobe Bryant has five titles to his name, and LeBron James has yet to win his first. But to be fair, Bryant has been surrounded by elite talent for each of those five championship seasons while James has always been undermanned in terms of the talent level of his teammates.

This year, the playing field is far more balanced.

This slideshow breaks down the title hopes for both the Lakers and Heat.
