What Match Up Do You Want to See in the NBA Finals?

CLEVELAND - MAY 05:  LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers receives 2008-2009 MVP trophy from NBA Commissioner David Stern prior to playing the Atlanta Hawks in Game One of the Eastern Conference Semifinals during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena on May 5, 2009 in Cleveland, Ohio.

As of this writing, there are four teams left with identical one-and-one records. Both No. 1 seeds, Los Angeles and Cleveland, have lost their home court advantage.

The venue now changes to their opponents’ home courts in Denver and Orlando respectively.

What are you hoping the NBA Finals come down to?

The Stern Gem—the Lakers versus the Cavaliers, the Bottoms Up Series—Denver against Orlando, The Melo King Series—the Nuggets and the Cavaliers, or the Disneywood Series —Orlando versus Hollywood (the Lakers).

Which series do you think gives NBA fans the most bang for their buck? Which series has the best match ups? Which series will give us the worst match ups?

Which series will be the most explosive offensively? Which series will be a defensive contest all the way?

No doubt the Commish wants to see the two number one seeds square off in a King James versus Kobe Bryant match. That may be the best series as far as television ratings are concerned, but will it be the best series for die-hard NBA fans?

Which series do you think will go seven games and hold the most excitement for fans? Which series could be a sweep or done in five games?

Let’s hear from you. Will King James fire off another shot "Heard Around the World?" Will Kobe Bryant try to recapture his image, which King James snatched in one fell swoop last night, as the best final shot in the game?

Will either one of them be in the NBA Finals? Or will Superman prove that he is truly super, and will Melo mellow out the Kobster and his inconsistent Lakers? What say you, NBA fans?
